Trilogy is a growing petroleum and natural gas-focused Canadian energy corporation that actively develops, produces and sells natural gas, crude oil and natural gas liquids. Trilogy's geographically concentrated assets are primarily low-risk, high working interest properties that provide abundant infill drilling opportunities and good access to infrastructure and processing facilities, many of which are operated and controlled by Trilogy. Trilogy's common shares are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "TET".
Certain measures used in this document, including "funds flow from operations", "operating income", "net debt", "finding and development costs", "operating netback" and "recycle ratio" collectively the "Non-GAAP measures" do not have any standardized meaning as prescribed by IFRS and previous GAAP and, therefore, are considered Non-GAAP measures. Non-GAAP measures are commonly used in the oil and gas industry and by Trilogy to provide shareholders and potential investors with additional information regarding the Company's liquidity and its ability to generate funds to finance its operations. However, given their lack of standardized meaning, such measurements are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.
"Funds flow from operations" refers to the cash flow from operating activities before net changes in operating working capital. The most directly comparable measure to "funds flow from operations" calculated in accordance with IFRS is the cash flow from operating activities. "Funds flow from operations" can be reconciled to cash f low from operating activities by adding (deducting) the net change in operating working capital as shown in the consolidated statements of cash flows.
"Operating income" is equal to petroleum and natural gas sales before financial instruments and bad debt expenses minus royalties, operating costs, and transportation costs. "Operating netback" refers to Operating income plus realized financial instrument gains and losses and other income minus actual decommissioning and restoration costs incurred. "Net debt" is calculated as current liabilities minus current assets plus long-term debt. The components described for "operating income", "operating netback" and "net debt" can be derived directly from Trilogy's consolidated financial statements.
"Finding and development costs" refers to all current year net capital expenditures, excluding property acquisitions and dispositions with associated reserves, and including changes in future development capital on a proved and proved plus probable basis. "Finding and development costs per Barrel of oil equivalent" ("F&D $/Boe") is calculated by dividing finding and development costs by the current year's reserve extensions, discoveries and revisions on a proved or proved plus probable reserve basis.
