Mr. Gary C. Evans, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Magnum Hunter Resources, commented, "Magnum Hunter significantly improved its financial results reported during fiscal year 2012 in all areas: revenues, production, cash flow, and proved reserves. At the same time, costs in the field as well as general and administrative costs continue to decline on a barrel of oil produced equivalent basis. While we are well into the new year, liquidity has subsequently improved with the sale of our Eagle Ford Shale properties which occurred in April. Current cash on hand and credit availability under our existing Senior Revolving Credit Facility is approximately $380 million, excluding non-core asset sales in the works. Even with the loss of approximately 3,500 barrels per day of production as a result of our Eagle Ford Shale properties sale, we remain confident with our prior production guidance of exiting this fiscal year between 23,000 - 25,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, which is almost double the actual production of last year."
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Magnum Hunter defines Adjusted EBITDAX as earnings before (1) exploration and abandonment expense, (2) depreciation, depletion and amortization expense, (3) non-recurring transaction and other expense, (4) impairments of oil and gas properties, (5) unrealized (gain) loss on derivatives, (6) (gain) loss on sale of assets, (7) interest expense and fees, (8) income tax benefit and (9) non-cash stock compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDAX is not a measure of net income or cash flows as determined by GAAP.
Magnum Hunter defines recurring income (loss) per common share as reported net loss attributable to common shareholders, plus non-recurring and non-cash items which include (1) exploration and abandonment expense, (2) impairment of oil and gas properties, (3) non-cash stock compensation expense, (4) non-recurring transaction and other expense, (5) unrealized (gain) loss on derivatives, (6) interest expense - fees, (7) (gain) loss on sale of assets, (8) (gain) loss from sale of discontinued operations and (9) income (loss) from discontinued operations.
Magnum Hunter defines Recurring Cash G&A as total general and administrative expenses before (1) non-cash stock compensation and (2) acquisition and other non-recurring expense.
Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate evaluation of the Company's business on a "normalized" or recurring basis and without giving effect to certain non-cash expenses and other items, thereby providing management, investors and analysts with comparative information for evaluating the Company in relation to other oil and gas companies providing corresponding non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, measures for financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, and that the reconciliations to the closest corresponding GAAP measure should be reviewed carefully.
