Fourth Quarter 2018 and Full Year Operating Results

Total production in the fourth quarter of 2018 increased approximately 108% from the fourth quarter of 2017, to 2.4 MMBOE, or 25,686 BOEPD (77% crude oil). Penn Virginia produced 7.9 MMBOE, or 21,765 BOEPD (76% crude oil), for full year 2018 representing 110% growth in total production and 120% growth in oil production over 2017 levels.

Penn Virginia drilled and turned to sales 10 gross (8.9 net) wells during the fourth quarter of 2018, all in the Eagle Ford. During 2018, the Company drilled and turned to sales 53 gross (45.5 net) wells and had three drilled but uncompleted wells at year-end.

Year-End 2018 Proved Reserves

Penn Virginia's total proved reserves as of December 31, 2018 increased 69% to approximately 123.0 MMBOE compared to 72.6 MMBOE reported at year-end 2017. The composition of the reserves at the end of 2018 was 73% oil, 15% NGLs and 12% natural gas, with 38% of the reserves classified as proved developed. The proved reserves were calculated in accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) guidelines using pricing of $65.56 per barrel for crude oil and $3.10 per million British Thermal Units (MMBtu) for natural gas.

The Company's Standardized Measure was $1.6 billion as of December 31, 2018, compared to $590.5 million as of year-end 2017. The increase in the Standardized Measure of the Company's proved reserves was primarily a result of an increase in proved reserves and the average NYMEX oil and natural gas price. The value of the Company’s total proved reserves, utilizing the SEC price guidelines, discounted at 10% and before tax (“PV-10 value”)(5), was $1,769.4 million as of December 31, 2018. The PV-10 value of the Company's total proved developed producing (“PDP”) reserves utilizing the SEC price guidelines was $1,027.6 million as of December 31, 2018. Using $55.00 WTI and $3.00 NYMEX flat pricing, the PV-10 value of the Company's total proved reserves and PDP reserves was $1.3 billion and $825.5 million, respectively.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

During the fourth quarter of 2018, the Company incurred $105.1 million of capital expenditures (excluding acquisitions), of which 98% was associated with drilling and completion capital. For the full year 2018, Penn Virginia incurred $419.0 million of capital expenditures (excluding acquisitions), of which 97% was for drilling and completion capital.

As of December 31, 2018, Penn Virginia had $321.0 million outstanding on its credit facility and liquidity of $146.5 million. As of February 22, 2019, the Company had outstanding borrowings of $313.0 million, resulting in $136.6 million available under the credit facility.

As of December 31, 2018, pro forma for the Hunt acquisition, the Company’s net debt to Adjusted EBITDAX ratio was approximately 1.7x.

2019 Outlook

The Company is committed to maintaining financial discipline and a strong balance sheet and expects to fully fund its 2019 capital plan within cash flow. Penn Virginia is targeting year-over-year production growth of approximately 30% for 2019, assuming a two-rig development program. Four wells in the Company’s easternmost acreage were delayed due to wellbore stability issues encountered during drilling; as a result Penn Virginia expects first quarter 2019 production to be slightly below fourth quarter 2018 production levels. 2019 outlook excludes the impact of the proposed Denbury Merger Transaction.

Acreage and Drilling Inventory

As of December 31, 2018, the Company had approximately 98,200 gross (84,200 net) acres.  Approximately 92% of Penn Virginia’s acreage is held by production. During 2018, the Company leased or renewed approximately 4,100 gross (3,600 net) acres.

Penn Virginia at year-end had an estimated 531 gross (451 net) drilling locations of which 100% are Company-operated and 114 gross (103 net) are anticipated to be XRLs. The Company’s net treatable lateral length increased by 13% to 2.9 million feet from year end 2017. 

Denbury Merger Transaction

As previously announced, on October 28, 2018, Penn Virginia entered into a definitive merger agreement (the “Agreement”) to be acquired by Denbury. Under the terms of the Agreement, subject to shareholder approval and certain other conditions, shareholders of Penn Virginia will receive, subject to proration, a combination of 12.4 shares of Denbury common stock and $25.86 of cash for each share of Penn Virginia common stock.  Penn Virginia shareholders will be permitted to elect to receive either all stock, all cash or a mix of stock and cash, in each case subject to proration, which will result in the aggregate issuance of approximately 191.667 million Denbury shares and payment by Denbury of $400 million in cash. The transaction was unanimously approved by the board of directors of each company, and certain Penn Virginia shareholders holding approximately 15 percent of the outstanding shares signed voting agreements agreeing to vote “for” the transaction.  Upon closing of the transaction, Denbury shareholders will own approximately 71% of the combined company, and Penn Virginia shareholders will own approximately 29%.

The transaction is subject to the approval of Penn Virginia shareholders holding at least two-thirds of the Company’s common stock, approval by Denbury’s stockholders holding a majority of the outstanding common stock of an amendment to Denbury’s charter to increase its authorized shares, the approval by Denbury’s stockholders of the issuance of shares of Denbury common stock in the merger and other customary closing conditions.  The special meeting of shareholders to approve the merger is anticipated in April 2019.  The Agreement contains certain termination rights for both Denbury and Penn Virginia, including if the transaction is not consummated by April 30, 2019, and requires payment of a termination fee in certain circumstances.

Upon closing, Denbury’s board of directors will be expanded from eight directors to 10 directors, to include two members of Penn Virginia’s board of directors that are mutually agreed upon by the parties.

CERTAIN NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES - unaudited
                     
Readers are reminded that non-GAAP measures are merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, or superior to financial measures prepared according to GAAP. They should be evaluated in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. It should be noted as well that our non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies.
                     
Reconciliation of GAAP "Net income (loss)" to Non-GAAP "Adjusted net income"
                     
Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income (loss) adjusted to include net cash settlements of derivatives and exclude the effects, net of income taxes, of non-cash changes in the fair value of derivatives, net gains and losses on the sales of assets, acquisition, divestiture and strategic transaction costs, executive retirement costs, restructuring expenses, net reorganization items, alternative minimum tax credit adjustments and other items. We believe that Non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP adjusted net income per share amounts provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance. This information facilitates management's internal comparisons to the Company's historical operating results as well as to the operating results of our competitors. Since management finds this measure to be useful, the Company believes that our investors can benefit by evaluating both non-GAAP and GAAP results. Adjusted net income non-GAAP is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to net income (loss).

Reconciliation of GAAP "Net income (loss)" to Non-GAAP "Adjusted EBITDAX"
                     
Adjusted EBITDAX represents net income (loss) before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization expense and share-based compensation expense, further adjusted to include the net cash settlements of derivatives and exclude the effects of gains and losses on sales of assets, non-cash changes in the fair value of derivatives, and special items including acquisition, divestiture and strategic transaction costs, executive retirement costs, restructuring expenses, net reorganization items and other items. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts for the valuation, comparison, rating, investment recommendations of companies within the oil and gas exploration and production industry. We use this information for comparative purposes within our industry. Adjusted EBITDAX is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to net income (loss). Adjusted EBITDAX as defined by Penn Virginia may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and should be considered in conjunction with net income (loss) and other measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as operating income or cash flows from operating activities. Adjusted EBITDAX should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of Penn Virginia's results as reported under GAAP.

Reconciliation of GAAP “Standardized Measure of Discounted Future Net Cash Flows” to Non-GAAP “PV-10”

Non-GAAP PV-10 value is the estimated future net cash flows from estimated proved reserves discounted at an annual rate of 10 percent before giving effect to income taxes. The standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows is the after-tax estimated future cash flows from estimated proved reserves discounted at an annual rate of 10 percent, determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). We use non-GAAP PV-10 value as one measure of the value of our estimated proved reserves and to compare relative values of proved reserves among exploration and production companies without regard to income taxes. We believe that securities analysts and rating agencies use PV-10 value in similar ways. Our management believes PV-10 value is a useful measure for comparison of proved reserve values among companies because, unlike standardized measure, it excludes future income taxes that often depend principally on the characteristics of the owner of the reserves rather than on the nature, location and quality of the reserves themselves.

Definitions and Calculations

Reserve Replacement Ratio - Definition

The Company uses the reserves replacement ratio as an indicator of the Company’s ability to replenish annual production volumes and grow its reserves, thereby providing some information on the sources of future production. The reserves replacement ratio is a statistical indicator that is limited because it typically varies widely based on the extent and timing of discoveries and property acquisitions. Its predictive and comparative value is also limited for the same reasons. In addition, since the ratio does not embed the cost or timing of future production of new reserves, it cannot be used as a measure of value creation. The reserve replacement ratio of approximately 734% was calculated by dividing net proved reserve additions of 58.3 MMBOE (the sum of extensions, discoveries, revisions, purchases and sales) by production of 7.9 MMBOE.
