Financial Statements and Supplementary Data” contained in the Form 10-K filed March 29, 2019. Excluding this royalty adjustment, for the fourth quarter, total revenue would have been $52.9 million, net income would have been $39.3 million and Adjusted EBITDAX would have been $14.0 million.
  2. As of December 31, 2018 and September 30, 2018

  4. Adjusted EBITDAX is a non-GAAP financial measure and is described in the attached table under “Non-GAAP Measures”
  5. Represents cash payments during the period

For the fourth quarter of 2018, Harvest reported net income of $34.3 million, or $3.41 per basic and diluted weighted average share outstanding, compared to a net loss of $40.3 million, or $(0.80) per basic and diluted weighted average limited partner unit outstanding, for the fourth quarter of 2017 reported by Harvest’s predecessor. For the third quarter of 2018, Harvest reported a net loss of $9.8 million, or $(0.97) per basic and diluted weighted average share outstanding. Included in 2018 fourth quarter net income were the following items:

  • $51.6 million of non-cash gains on commodity derivatives,
  • $16.0 million of non-cash losses on equity securities,
  • $5.0 million revenue decrease related to a royalty adjustment, 
  • $0.7 million of gain on sales of oil and natural gas properties,
  • $0.5 million of reorganization items, net,
  • $0.5 million of impairment charges related to the sale of proved oil and natural gas properties located in Central Texas and Karnes County, Texas,
  • $0.1 million of non-cash costs contained in general and administrative expenses, and
  • $0.1 million of dry hole and exploration costs.

Production for the fourth quarter of 2018 was 9.0 Bcf of natural gas, 194 Mbbls of oil and 523 Mbbls of natural gas liquids (“NGLs”), or 144.9 million cubic feet equivalent per day (Mmcfe/day). This represents a 16 percent decrease from the fourth quarter of 2017 production of 172.1 Mmcfe/day and a 17 percent decrease from the third quarter of 2018 production of 175.5 Mmcfe/day. The decreases in production from the fourth quarter of 2017 and third quarter of 2018 were primarily due to the divestiture of the Central Texas and Karnes County, Texas properties that closed on August 31, 2018, partially offset by the adoption of new revenue recognition standards in 2018. 

Adjusted EBITDAX for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $9.0 million, a 61 percent decrease from the fourth quarter of 2017 and a 69 percent decrease from the third quarter of 2018. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDAX from the fourth quarter of 2017 was primarily attributable to the divestiture of the Central Texas and Karnes County, Texas properties and a royalty adjustment, partially offset by a decrease in general and administrative expenses. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDAX from the third quarter of 2018 was primarily attributable to the divestiture of the Central Texas and Karnes County, Texas properties, a royalty adjustment and lower realized crude oil and natural gas liquids prices, partially offset by higher realized natural gas prices and a decrease in general and administrative expenses. Adjusted EBITDAX is a non-GAAP financial measure and is described in the attached table under “Non-GAAP Measures.”

Excluding this royalty adjustment, for 2018, total revenue would have been $254.6 million, net loss would have been $581.6 million and Adjusted EBITDAX would have been $97.0 million.
  3. As of December 31, 2018 and 2017
  4. Includes $589.6 million of reorganization items, net, in 2018
  5. Adjusted EBITDAX is a non-GAAP financial measure and is described in the attached table under “Non-GAAP Measures”
  6. Represents cash payments during the period

For 2018, Harvest reported a net loss of $586.6 million which reflects the combined results of the five months ended May 31, 2018 (Predecessor) and seven months ended December 31, 2018 (Successor). For 2017, Harvest’s predecessor reported a net loss of $134.2 million. Included in net loss for 2018 were the following items:

  • $589.6 million of reorganization items, net,
  • $20.1 million of non-cash gains on commodity and interest rate derivatives,
  • $11.1 million of non-cash losses on equity securities,
  • $5.0 million revenue decrease related to a royalty adjustment, 
  • $3.1 million of impairment charges related to the sale of proved oil and natural gas properties located in Central Texas and Karnes County, Texas, and
  • $5.0 million of non-cash costs contained in general and administrative expenses.

Production for 2018 was 40.1 Bcf of natural gas, 1.3 Mmbbls of oil and 2.4 Mmbbls of natural gas liquids, or 170.5 Mmcfe/day, which is comparable to 2017 production of 170.7 Mmcfe/day. 

Adjusted EBITDAX for 2018 was $92.0 million, a 10 percent increase as compared to 2017. The increase in Adjusted EBITDAX as compared to 2017 is primarily due to higher realized oil and natural gas liquids prices, partially offset by the divestiture of the Central Texas and Karnes County, Texas properties, a royalty adjustment and lower realized natural gas prices.

Fresh Start Accounting and Factors Affecting the Comparability of the Results

Upon emergence from Chapter 11 proceedings on June 4, 2018 Harvest adopted fresh start accounting as required by Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). As a result of adopting fresh start accounting, the Company’s consolidated financial statements and certain presentations are separated into two distinct periods, the period before the convenience date of May 31, 2018 (labeled “Predecessor”) and the period after the convenience date (labeled “Successor”), to indicate the application of different basis of accounting between the periods presented. Despite the separate presentation, there was continuity of the Company’s operations.

The Company’s operating results are presented herein on a combined basis (i.e., by combining the results of the applicable Predecessor and Successor periods).The Company believes that describing certain year-over-year variances and trends in its results for the three months and years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 without regard to the concept of Successor and Predecessor (i.e. on a combined basis) facilitates a meaningful analysis of the results of operations. These combined results are not considered to be prepared in accordance with GAAP and have not been prepared as pro forma results under applicable regulations. The combined operating results may not reflect the actual results the Company would have achieved absent its emergence from bankruptcy and may not be indicative of future results.

Revolving Credit Facility and Liquidity

As of March 28, 2019, the Company’s borrowing base under its credit facility was $260.3 million, of which $55 million was drawn. Liquidity from borrowing base capacity and cash on hand as of March 28, 2019 is over $210 million. Harvest's next semi-annual borrowing base redetermination is scheduled for April 2019.

For more information regarding Harvest's debt and liquidity, please review Harvest's Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on March 29, 2019, with the SEC.

Commodity Hedges

In 2019, Harvest entered into the following commodity hedges.

        
    Swap Swap
Period Index Volume Price
Natural Gas (MmmBtus):       
Jan - Dec 2020 NYMEX  16,470.0 $ 2.70

In addition, in January 2019, Harvest terminated 167 MBls of oil swaps for the period of February 2019 to December 2019 at a fixed price of $62.12 and received a total of $1.5 million. Details regarding Harvest’s total current hedge position may be found in the Total Current Hedge Position table at the end of this press release.

Year-end 2018 Estimated Net Proved Reserves

Harvest’s year-end 2018 estimated net proved reserves were 712 Bcfe. Approximately 67 percent were natural gas, 25 percent were natural gas liquids and 8 percent were crude oil. As specified by the SEC, the prices for oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids were the average prices during the year determined using the price on the first day of each month. The prices utilized in calculating the Company’s total estimated proved reserves at December 31, 2018 were $65.56 per Bbl of oil and $3.10 per MMBtu of natural gas.

At December 31, 2018, our proved reserves had a standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows of $436.4 million and a present value of future net pre-tax cash flows attributable to estimated net proved reserves, discounted at 10 percent per annum (“PV-10”) of $509.6 million based on SEC pricing. PV–10, is a computation of the standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows on a pre–tax basis and is computed on the same basis as standardized measure but does not include a provision for federal income taxes, Texas gross margin tax or other state taxes. PV–10 is considered a non–GAAP financial measure under the regulations of the SEC. We believe PV–10 to be an important measure for evaluating the relative significance of our oil and natural gas properties. We further believe investors and creditors may utilize our PV–10 as a basis for comparison of the relative size and value of our reserves to other companies. PV–10, however, is not a substitute for the standardized measure. See the attached table under

“Non-GAAP Measures” for a reconciliation of standardized measure to PV-10. Our PV–10 measure and standardized measure do not purport to present the fair value of our reserves.

             
  Estimated Net Proved Reserves (1)
           Natural Gas 
  Crude Oil  Natural Gas     Equivalents 
  (MMBbls)  (Bcf)  NGLs (MMBbls)  (Bcfe) 
Proved Reserves:            
  Developed  9.9   468.5   28.5   698.5 
  Undeveloped  —   8.2   0.8   13.4 
Total  9.9   476.7   29.3   711.9 
  1. Since January 2019, Harvest has sold or entered into definitive agreements to sell all interests in the San Juan Basin representing 157.6 Bcfe and certain interests in the Mid-Continent area representing 9.5 Bcfe of our 2018 year-end proved reserves. Combined, the divestitures are considered 100% developed.

For comparative purposes, utilizing NYMEX forward closing prices for oil and natural gas at December 31, 2018 for January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2030, total proved reserves at December 31, 2018 were 694 Bcfe, with a PV–10 of $353 million, a decrease of 18 Bcfe versus SEC reserves and $157 million versus PV–10 using SEC prices. The unweighted average of the NYMEX strip prices used were $51.80 per Bbl of oil and $2.93 per MMBtu of natural gas. NYMEX forward strip-based proved reserves were calculated based on the SEC proved reserves estimation methodology, but applying NYMEX forward strip prices rather than SEC prices. We believe that investors and creditors may utilize our NYMEX strip-based PV-10 as a basis for comparison of the relative size and value of our reserves to other companies. The PV–10 of our NYMEX forward strip-based reserves is not a substitute for the standardized measure and does not purport to present the fair value of our reserves.

Guidance for 2019

The guidance table below assumes the San Juan and Mid-Continent divestitures close at the end of the first quarter (although the San Juan and Mid-Continent divestitures are expected to close at the beginning of April 2019).  Therefore, the guidance for the second quarter through the fourth quarter excludes these assets.

Non-GAAP Measures

We define Adjusted EBITDAX as net income (loss) plus income taxes; interest expense, net; depreciation, depletion and amortization; accretion expense on obligations; (gain) loss on derivatives, net; cash settlements of matured commodity derivative contracts; non-cash equity-based compensation; impairment of oil and natural gas properties; non-cash oil inventory adjustment; dry hole and exploration costs; gain on sales of oil and natural gas properties; reorganization items, net; loss (gain) on equity securities and other income, net. 

Adjusted EBITDAX is used by the Company’s management to provide additional information and statistics relative to the performance of the business, including (prior to the creation of any reserves) the cash return on investment. The Company believes this financial measure may indicate to investors whether or not it is generating cash flow at a level that can support or sustain quarterly interest expense and capital expenditures. Adjusted EBITDAX should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDAX excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income and operating income, and this measure may vary among companies. Therefore, Harvest’s Adjusted EBITDAX may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
