RAM Energy Resources Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results and Update to Osage Mississippian Play

  • RAM Reports 2Q 2011 Net Income of $8.9 Million, or $0.11 Per Share
  • 2Q 2011 Free Cash Flow of $7.7 Million, or $0.10 Per Share
  • Sustained production in excess of 100 BOE per day from the Surber #1-26 Well in the Company's Osage Mississippian Play

TULSA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- RAM Energy Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq: RAME) today announced second quarter 2011 earnings and financial highlights as well as an update on its testing of several wells in the Southern Surber area of the company's Osage Mississippian exploration play.

RAM Reports 2Q 2011 Net Income of $8.9 Million vs. $2.7 Million in 2Q2010

For the quarter ended June 30, 2011, RAM reported net income of $8.9 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to $2.7 million, or $0.03 per share, in the year-ago quarter.

Modified EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) was $11.6 million for the 2Q11, compared with $12.5 million in last year's quarter. Similarly, free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) was $7.7 million, or $0.10 per share, for this year's second quarter compared to $7.2 million, or $0.09 per share, in last year's second quarter.

Update to Osage Concession Activity

Southern Suber Area

Modifications to the company's production facilities and salt water disposal well have been completed, and RAM has begun the process of testing previously drilled wells that have been shut in pending completion of these improvements. In addition, the company is adding a natural gas powered electric generator to the central tank battery which will provide electricity to run submersible pumps in the Surber #1-26 and Rickets #3-26 wells and additional pumps, if needed, to increase the capacity of the water disposal facilities. Plans are to permit a second salt water disposal well for fluid disposal from the recently drilled wells and to service future wells in this area. The Surber #1-26 well, which was fracture stimulated in late March, continues to produce at rates well above the type curve, producing about 108 barrels of oil equivalent per day, or BOEPD (composed of 55 barrels of oil and 317 MCF of high BTU natural gas). Initial production testing on the Surber #1-35, Ricketts #2-35 and Surber #2-T, after having been acidized but not fractured , currently aggregates to 17 BOEPD (composed of 8 barrels of oil and 52 MCF of high BTU natural gas). As a result of the excellent response observed to date after fracturing the Surber #1-26 well, the company is evaluating plans to also apply a slick water frac treatment to the Surber #1-35, Ricketts #2-35 and Surber #2-T, with the expectation of achieving increased production volumes. The Rickets #3-26, which was drilled to the Mississippi Chat in late 2010 and fractured stimulated in April of this year, is scheduled for testing in mid-August. The well is currently shut in pending installation of the field electric generator to enhance salt water disposal capacity.

Central Mashunkashey Area

The Farmland #2-16 well, drilled in mid-April and completed in the Bartlesville formation, is producing 5 BOPD while recovering load water from a small fracture stimulation treatment initiated in late July. The Christenson #3-2, which initially tested at 750 MCFPD (125 BOEPD) of natural gas from the Arbuckle formation, is awaiting additional testing uphole in the Mississippi Dense (Lime) formation.

Additional Planned Activity

RAM plans to drill four wells targeting the Mississippi formation in the third quarter of 2011, including the Jones #1-33 and Kendrick #1-27 in the Northern Jones portion of the concession, the Cooper #3-35 (a recent replacement for the previously planned Stuart #1-28 well) in the Southern Surber area, and the Farmland #1-20 well in the Central Mashunkashey area. RAM is tentatively planning to drill its first horizontal Mississippi well in the Southern Surber area in early 2012.

The company's Phase 2 seismic survey, which covers 31 square miles of the concession to the south and east of the 25 square mile Phase 1 seismic survey, has been completed. Processing and interpretation are underway with initial results expected in mid-September.

Second Quarter Results

Crude oil and natural gas liquids (NGL) production remained consistently high in the second quarter of 2011, accounting for 71% of total company production. Crude oil and NGL production in 2Q11 was 270 thousand barrels, up slightly compared to 269 thousand barrels of oil and NGL produced in the first quarter of 2011. Total production in 2Q11 was 380 thousand BOE, down 31% from 549 thousand BOE in 2Q10. Excluding production in the year ago quarter of 101 thousand BOE attributable to properties sold in December 2010, RAM's production would have decreased by 15%, as shown in the accompanying table, Components of Production Decline, due primarily to normal production declines and the shutting in of one well in Louisiana in conjunction with a major workover. Given the company's continuing outlook for lackluster natural gas prices in the intermediate term, capital spending has focused predominantly on the company's substantial inventory of crude oil projects rather than those expected to be primarily natural gas.

The company's realized price for oil increased 33% to an average of $100.81 per barrel in 2Q11 compared with last year's second quarter average realized price of $75.57 per barrel. In addition, the price of NGLs grew 59% in 2Q11, averaging $57.34 per barrel, compared to the average of $36.04 per barrel for last year's second quarter. Similarly, the company's realized price for natural gas rose 9% in 2Q11 to an average of $4.26 per Mcf compared to an average of $3.92 per Mcf in the second quarter of 2010. The positive impact from the 49% increase in total average price per BOE in 2Q11 more than offset the impact from asset sales and normal production declines, allowing oil and gas revenue for the second quarter to grow to $28.1 million, compared to $27.2 million in the year ago second quarter. Oil and NGL production accounted for 90% of total oil and natural gas sales in 2Q11, up slightly from the 1Q11 level of 89%.

Derivative activity resulted in a $8.6 million net gain in the 2Q11, comprised of $10.7 million in unrealized mark-to-market gains, partially offset by realized losses from contract settlements and premium costs of $2.1 million (which included a $1.4 million charge associated with unwinding and novation of certain contracts in connection with the Company's recent refinancing). As a result, total revenues for the quarter rose to $36.8 million. Derivative activity in last year's second quarter resulted in a $1.7 million net gain, raising total revenue to $29.0 million in 2Q10.

Production expenses were $8.2 million in 2Q11, down $0.5 million from $8.7 million in 2Q10; however, excluding expenses attributable to sold properties, production expenses for 2Q10 would have been level with the year ago quarter. Production taxes were $1.5 million in 2Q11, up slightly compared to production taxes of $1.3 million, excluding asset sales, in the same quarter last year, primarily due to higher hydrocarbon prices during 2Q11. Other expenses include an $0.8 million charge for a legal settlement relating to a disputed ownership interest in an Oklahoma well.

Six Month 2011 Results

Oil and natural gas sales decreased $3.2 million, or 6%, to $53.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $57.1 million for the same period in 2010. Excluding production from the sale properties, oil and natural gas sales would have increased $3.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 as compared to the same period in 2010. This increase was driven primarily by higher commodity prices during the 2011 period. Production volumes decreased 31% compared to the same period last year; however production from sold properties and the shutting in of one well in Louisiana for a major workover accounted for approximately 65% of the decline. Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was $1.0 million, or $0.01 per share, compared to net income of $5.1 million, or $0.07 per share, in the year-ago period. Results for the June 30, 2011 period were negatively impacted by unrealized derivative losses and debt extinguishment costs. Results of the June 30, 2010 period were positively impacted by unrealized derivative gains.

Modified EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) was $24.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $28.2 million in last year's first half. Similarly, free cash flow for the first half of 2011 totaled $15.4 million, or $0.20 a share, compared with $18.5 million, or $0.24 a share, for the six month period ending June 30, 2010.

Long-Term Debt and Liquidity

At June 30, 2011, RAM's outstanding borrowings under its credit facility totaled $205.0 million, including $75.0 million outstanding under its second lien term loan and $130.0 million drawn on its revolver, which is currently subject to a $150.0 million borrowing base. Total outstanding borrowings under the credit facility at June 30 last year totaled $245.0 million.

Interest expense for 2Q11 was $3.6 million compared to $5.7 million in the year-ago quarter. The decrease is due to lower interest rates under the company's new credit facility completed in the first quarter of this year and lower average outstanding borrowings during this year's quarter. The blended interest rate on borrowings was 6.2% in 2Q11 compared to 8.2% in last year's quarter.

Capital Expenditures and Revised Plans for 2011

Capital expenditures during 2Q11 totaled $7.9 million, including $7.7 million attributable to development and exploration costs and $0.2 million for proved property acquisitions. During 2Q11 RAM participated in the drilling of 10 gross (9.2 net) development wells and 5 gross (5.0 net) exploration wells. Nine gross (8.2 net) development wells were capable of production. One gross (1.0 net) development well was in the process of testing at the end of the quarter. Five gross (5.0 net) exploration wells were either testing or waiting on completion and/or equipment at the end of the second quarter. RAM has revised its non-acquisition capital budget for the 2011 year to $29.0 million, a decrease of $6.0 million from the previously announced level of $35.0 million. Substantially all of the change is attributable to a reduction for development drilling and recompletions, primarily on our South Texas natural gas properties. The total allocated to exploration as well as geological, geophysical and seismic remains the same at $17.0 million. Consistent with prior years, the company expects all non-acquisition capital expenditures to be funded out of cash flow.

Pending the outcome of the proposed asset sale of a 90% interest in the Electra Burkburnett fields, RAM's previously disclosed guidance of 1.7 million to 1.8 million BOE of production for 2011 and modified EBITDA of $52.0 to $55.0 million for 2011 is no longer valid.

Modified EBITDA and Free Cash Flow
(non-GAAP measures)
(unaudited)

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Modified EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is determined by adding the following to net income (loss): interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, accretion, share-based compensation, impairment charges, unrealized gains or losses on derivatives. Free cash flow is also a non-GAAP measure representing Modified EBITDA after adjustments for the cash portion of interest and income taxes. These non-GAAP measures are presented because management believes it is a useful adjunct to cash provided by operating activities under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). These non-GAAP measures are widely accepted as financial indicators of an oil and gas company's ability to generate cash used to internally fund exploration and development activities and fund debt service costs. These non-GAAP measures are not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash provided (used) by operating, investing, or financing activities as an indicator of cash flows, or as a measure of liquidity.
