Mr. Gary C. Evans, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Magnum Hunter Resources, commented, "Our management team and Board are pleased to complete this first quarter 2013 financial statement filing. We accomplished this goal within our previously stated thirty day plan. As reflected in this filing, internal control issues are being addressed, and we intend to refocus our time and efforts on growing our production from our substantial asset base with our current drilling plans. Actual production for this first quarter was substantially impacted by shut-ins necessary in our Appalachian Division due to midstream gathering issues. While the problem was troublesome and required additional pigging launchers to be installed due to heavy NGL and liquids production found in our new Marcellus wells current gas stream, this is a good problem in that this should prove beneficial over time with greater overall liquids production. We are confident that our leasehold acreage positions in both the Williston Basin and Marcellus/Utica Shale Plays will reflect great production growth as the year unfolds."
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) unrealized (gain) loss on investments, (7) (gain) loss on sale of assets, (8) interest expense and fees, (9) income tax benefit and (10) non-cash stock compensation expense and 401-K matching. 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)unrealized (gain) loss on investments, (7) interest expense - fees, (8) (gain) loss on sale of assets, (9) income tax expense (benefit), (10) (gain) loss from sale of discontinued operations and (11) 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) transaction 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.
