Operating income adjusted for cash settled derivatives was $1.7 million for the quarter, which included $6.0 million received for cash settled derivatives.  Operating loss, defined as revenues minus operating expenses, totaled $4.3 million in the quarter prior to cash settled derivatives.   Operating income adjusted for cash settled derivatives was $3.3 million in the prior year period, which included $1.8 million paid for cash settled derivatives.  Operating income totaled $5.1 million in the prior year period prior to cash settled derivatives.

INTEREST EXPENSE

Interest expense totaled $2.0 million in the quarter, which included interest payable in cash of $1.2 million incurred on the credit facility and non-cash interest of $0.8 million incurred primarily on the Company's second lien notes, which included $0.4 million paid in-kind interest and $0.4 million amortization of debt discount and issuance costs.  Interest expense for the prior year period was $3.7 million, which included interest payable in cash of $0.5 million incurred on the credit facility and non-cash interest of $3.2 million incurred on the Company's second lien notes, which included $1.8 million paid in-kind interest and $1.4 million amortization of debt discount and issuance costs.

CAPITAL EXPENDITURES

Capital expenditures totaled $18.4 million in the quarter, of which a majority was spent on drilling and completion costs, versus $29.5 million in the prior year period, of which $28.5 million was spent on drilling and completion costs and $1.0 million on other expenditures. The Company conducted drilling operations on 12.0 gross (4.0 net) wells in the quarter and added 5 gross (1.8 net) wells to production, with 4 gross (0.8 net) wells added at the end of March.  The Company had 10.0 gross (4.6 net) drilled but uncompleted ("DUC") wells at the end of the quarter, which the Company plans to complete in the future in a better price environment.  The Company reaffirms its full year preliminary budget of $40 - $50 million and the Board of Directors will review the 2020 capital expenditure budget quarterly and adjust, if necessary, based on commodity prices and the goal of free cash flow generation from moderate growth in volumes and a further reduction in per unit costs.

BALANCE SHEET

The Company exited the quarter with $1.3 million of cash, $92.9 million outstanding under the Company's credit facility, and total principal debt outstanding, including the credit facility and second lien notes, of $106.3 million.

CRUDE OIL AND NATURAL GAS DERIVATIVES

The Company had a gain of $9.1 million on its derivatives not designated as hedges in the quarter, which was comprised of a gain of $6.0 million on cash settlements and a $3.1 million gain representing the change of the fair value of our open natural gas and oil derivative contracts, versus a loss of $1.0 million on its derivatives not designated as hedges in the prior year period, which was comprised of a loss of $1.8 million on cash settlements offset by a $0.8 million gain representing the change in fair value of our open natural gas and oil derivative contracts.

OTHER INFORMATION

In this press release, the Company refers to several non-US GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, DCF, Return on Capital Employed ("ROCE"), operating income adjusted for cash settled derivatives, oil and natural gas revenues adjusted for cash settled derivatives, G&A expense payable in cash and interest expense payable in cash. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA, DCF and ROCE are good financial indicators of the Company's performance and ability to internally generate operating funds. DCF should not be considered an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities, as defined by US GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income (loss) applicable to common stock, as defined by US GAAP. Operating income adjusted for cash settled derivatives should not be considered an alternative for operating income, as defined by US GAAP. Oil and natural gas revenues adjusted for cash settled derivatives should not be considered an alternative for oil and natural gas revenues, as defined by US GAAP. G&A payable in cash should not be considered an alternative to general and administrative expense, as defined by US GAAP. Interest expense payable in cash should not be considered an alternative to interest expense, as defined by US GAAP. Management believes that all of these non-US GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors because they are monitored and used by Company management and widely used by professional research analysts in the valuation and investment recommendations of companies within the oil and gas exploration and production industry.

Unless otherwise stated, oil production volumes include condensate.

Certain statements in this news release regarding future expectations and plans for future activities may be regarded as "forward looking statements" within the meaning of the Securities Litigation Reform Act.  They are subject to various risks, such as financial market conditions, changes in commodities prices and costs of drilling and completion, operating hazards, drilling risks, and the inherent uncertainties in interpreting engineering data relating to underground accumulations of oil and gas, as well as other risks discussed in detail in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and other subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. 

Goodrich Petroleum is an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company listed on the NYSE American under the symbol "GDP".

(1) Discretionary cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities before changes in operating assets and liabilities. Management believes that the non-US GAAP measure of discretionary cash flow is useful as an indicator of an oil and natural gas exploration and production company's ability to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service or incur additional debt. The company has also included this information because changes in operating assets and liabilities relate to the timing of cash receipts and disbursements which the company may not control and may not relate to the period in which the operating activities occurred. Operating cash flow should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net cash provided by operating activities prepared in accordance with US GAAP. 






(2) Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest expense, income and similar taxes, DD&A, share based compensation expense and impairment of oil and natural gas properties. In calculating adjusted EBITDA, reorganization gains/losses and gains/losses on commodity derivatives not designated as hedges net of cash received or paid in settlement of derivative instruments are also excluded. Other excluded items include interest income and other, adjustments per our 2019 Senior Credit Facility agreement for operating leases under ASC 842 and any other extraordinary non-cash gains/losses.






(3) Fully diluted shares excludes approximately 0.6 million and 1.9 million potentially dilutive instruments that were anti-dilutive for the three months March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
