Martyn Willsher, Amplify’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Amplify is off to a good start in 2024. Continued strong crude oil prices and better-than-expected first quarter results have enabled us to increase 2024 guidance.”

Mr. Willsher continued, “At Bairoil, we successfully completed a limited turnaround, which we expect will reduce downtime later in the year and benefit the ongoing monetization process. At Beta, while we have deferred the completion of the A45 well until the fourth quarter, we are encouraged by the data in the drilling logs, which supports the hydrocarbon potential of the target formation. We expect to spud our second well at Beta this month, with plans to have it online in the second quarter. In East Texas and Oklahoma, we remain focused on lowering costs, reducing production declines, and improving operational efficiencies to maximize cash flow.”

Mr. Willsher concluded, “I remain confident that the initiatives Amplify is actively pursuing this year can be transformative for the Company. We believe the Company’s potential is still not fully realized and that these initiatives, when successfully achieved, will enhance shareholder value.”

Key Financial Results

During the first quarter of 2024, the Company reported a net loss of approximately $9.4 million compared to net income of $43.6 million in the prior quarter. The decrease was primarily attributable to non-cash unrealized losses on commodity derivatives during the period.

Due to stronger crude oil prices and reduced downtime at Beta, Amplify generated $24.9 million of Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter.

As projected, capital investment in the first quarter increased significantly compared to the prior quarter. Despite this increase, Amplify generated net cash provided by operating activities of $7.7 million and $2.3 million of free cash flow in the first quarter of 2024, which exceeded internal projections. Amplify has now generated positive free cash flow in 15 of the last 16 fiscal quarters.

Revolving Credit Facility

On May 2, 2024, Amplify completed its regularly scheduled semi-annual borrowing base redetermination. The borrowing base was reaffirmed at $150 million with elected commitments of $135 million. The next regularly scheduled borrowing base redetermination is expected to occur in the fourth quarter of 2024.

As of March 31, 2024, Amplify had net debt of $112 million, consisting of $115 million outstanding under its revolving credit facility and $3 million of cash and cash equivalents. Net debt to LTM Adjusted EBITDA was 1.3x (net debt as of March 31, 2024 and 1Q24 LTM Adjusted EBITDA). First quarter net debt increased from the prior quarter due to expected changes in working capital and increased investment activity.

Corporate Production and Pricing

During the first quarter of 2024, average daily production was approximately 20.2 MBoepd. The Company added incremental oil production in the first quarter of 2024 versus the fourth quarter of 2023, despite curtailments associated with the limited turnaround at Bairoil and scheduled shut-ins at Beta related to the electrification project. Although oil production increased versus the prior quarter, natural gas production was lower quarter over quarter primarily due to third-party interruptions and higher shrinks as a result of processing more ethane. The Company’s product mix for the quarter was 43% crude oil, 18% NGLs, and 39% natural gas.

Total oil, natural gas and NGL revenues for the first quarter of 2024 were approximately $75.3 million, before the impact of derivatives. The Company realized a gain on commodity derivatives of $4.3 million during the first quarter. Oil, natural gas and NGL revenues, net of realized hedges, increased $4.6 million for the first quarter compared to the prior quarter.

Costs and Expenses

Lease operating expenses in the first quarter of 2024 were approximately $38.3 million, or $20.78 per Boe, a $3.7 million increase compared to the prior quarter’s operating expenses, which benefited from a $1.5 million accounting adjustment at Beta. Scheduled maintenance and other routine annual expenses increased overall operating expenses in the first quarter. Consequently, operating expenses in future quarters are expected to be lower. Lease operating expenses also do not reflect $0.6 million of income generated by Magnify Energy Services.

Severance and Ad Valorem taxes in the first quarter were approximately $4.9 million, a decrease of $1.0 million compared to $5.9 million in the prior quarter. Severance and Ad Valorem taxes as a percentage of revenue were approximately 6.5% this quarter compared to 7.6% in the prior quarter.

Amplify incurred $4.8 million, or $2.59 per Boe, of gathering, processing and transportation expenses in the first quarter, compared to $5.1 million, or $2.66 per Boe, in the prior quarter.

First quarter cash G&A expenses were $7.9 million, an increase of $1.7 million from $6.2 million in the prior quarter and in-line with expectations. This increase was primarily due to year-end processes that impact various cost drivers annually in the first quarter and a one-time cost associated with the early termination of our Tulsa office lease. The Company anticipates that quarterly cash G&A expenses will be significantly lower throughout the remainder of the year.

Depreciation, depletion and amortization expense for the first quarter totaled $8.2 million, or $4.47 per Boe, compared to $7.6 million, or $4.00 per Boe, in the prior quarter.

Net interest expense was $3.5 million for the first quarter, a decrease of $0.3 million from $3.8 million in the prior quarter.

Amplify recorded current income tax expense of $1.4 million for the first quarter.

Capital Investments

Cash capital investment during the first quarter of 2024 was approximately $19.1 million. During the first quarter, the Company’s capital allocation was approximately 80% for Beta facility projects, development drilling and workovers and 8% for Bairoil facilities projects, with the remainder distributed across the Company’s other assets.

The following table details Amplify’s capital invested during the first quarter 2024:

  First Quarter   2024 Capital   ($ MM) Bairoil $1.5 Beta $15.7 Oklahoma $0.8 East Texas / North Louisiana $0.1 Eagle Ford (Non-op) $0.4 Magnify Energy Services $0.7 Total Capital Invested $ 19.1     

The Company’s capital investments for the remainder of 2024 will be allocated to development and continued facility enhancements at Beta, high-return workovers across our assets, and non-operated projects. In the Eagle Ford, the Company is expecting to participate in 13 gross (0.7 net) new development wells and 2 gross (0.4 net) recompletion projects, while in East Texas the Company is evaluating participation in 3 gross (0.8 net) wells, all of which are non-operated development projects and will provide additional volumes and cash flow in early 2025.

Beta Development and Facility Upgrade

In the first quarter, we completed the second phase of the electrification and emissions reduction infrastructure project, which involved successfully replacing our diesel-driven injection pumps with electric pumps on the Elly platform. We are now proceeding with the third and final phase of the project, which involves installing selective catalytic reducers on our rig engines on the Ellen platform. Amplify remains on target to meet the compliance deadline in the fourth quarter of 2024, as prescribed by district air quality regulations.

With respect to the development program, the Company spud the A45 well from the Ellen platform in March and successfully reached the objective formation. Amplify’s formation logs reinforce the Company’s views that the target interval has a high oil saturation and is expected to deliver positive results. During drilling operations, Amplify experienced equipment issues, which led to drilling complications. As a result, we have altered the completion design for the well. Due to equipment availability for the revised completion and because commencement of the third phase of the electrification project is critical to achieve the project deadline, we are deferring the completion of the A45 well until the fourth quarter of 2024. We expect to spud our second development well this month, with its completion anticipated in the second quarter, and we plan to spud two additional development wells in the third quarter.

Beta Sinking Fund

In the first quarter, Amplify successfully replaced its prior surety bonds with new surety bonds from a different group of providers. As a result, the Company was able to successfully restructure its sinking fund obligations which will lower annual payments by approximately $7 million per year.

Iodine Royalty Agreements

In Oklahoma, Amplify provides produced water to a third-party for iodine extraction from the brine stream. The third-party processor has historically paid royalties to Amplify on the iodine delivered which is reflected in Other Revenue. Recently, the Company renegotiated the terms of its iodine agreements to increase future royalty payments. Amplify expects to report the impact of the increased royalty payments starting in the second quarter of 2024 and effective as of January 1, 2024.

Updated Full-Year 2024 Guidance

Based on better-than-expected first quarter results and continued strength in crude oil prices, the Company is providing updated guidance for 2024. The following guidance is subject to the cautionary statements and limitations described under the “Forward-Looking Statements” caption at the end of this press release. Amplify’s updated 2024 guidance is based on its current expectations regarding capital investment and flat commodity prices for crude oil of $78/Bbl (WTI) and natural gas of $2.25/MMBtu (Henry Hub), and on the assumption that market demand and prices for oil and natural gas will continue at levels that allow for economic production of these products. Additionally, the Company expects to invest 85% to 95% of its capital in the first three quarters of the year primarily in connection with the Beta development program.

A summary of the guidance is presented below:

(2) Refer to “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for Amplify’s definition and use of cash G&A, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow, non-GAAP measures (cash income taxes, which are not included in free cash flow, are expected to range between $4 – $8 million for the year)
(3) Amplify believes that a quantitative reconciliation of such forward-looking information to the most comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP cannot be made available without unreasonable efforts. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures would require Amplify to predict the timing and likelihood of future transactions and other items that are difficult to accurately predict. Neither of these forward-looking measures, nor their probable significance, can be quantified with a reasonable degree of accuracy. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP measures is not provided.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and accompanying schedules include the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, net debt, and cash G&A. The accompanying schedules provide a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Amplify’s non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to GAAP measures such as net income, operating income, net cash flows provided by operating activities, standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows, or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Amplify’s non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because they may not calculate such measures in the same manner as Amplify does.

Adjusted EBITDA. Amplify defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss, plus interest expense; gain or loss on early extinguishment of debt; income tax expenses; depreciation, depletion and amortization; accretion of asset retirement obligations; gains or losses on commodity derivatives; cash settlements received or paid on expired commodity derivative instruments; amortization of gain associated with terminated commodity derivatives; acquisition and divestiture related costs; reorganization items; share-based compensation expense; exploration costs; loss on settlement of AROs; bad debt expense; and other nonrecurring items. Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used as a supplemental financial measure by management and external users of Amplify’s financial statements, such as investors, research analysts and rating agencies, to assess: (1) its operating performance as compared to other companies in Amplify’s industry without regard to financing methods, capital structures or historical cost basis; (2) the ability of its assets to generate cash sufficient to pay interest and support Amplify’s indebtedness; and (3) the viability of projects and the overall rates of return on alternative investment opportunities. Since Adjusted EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income or loss and because these measures may vary among other companies, the Adjusted EBITDA data presented in this press release may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA are net income and net cash provided by operating activities.

Free cash flow. Amplify defines free cash flow as Adjusted EBITDA, less cash interest expense and capital expenditures. Free cash flow is an important non-GAAP financial measure for Amplify’s investors since it serves as an indicator of the Company’s success in providing a cash return on investment. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to free cash flow are net income and net cash provided by operating activities.

Net debt. Amplify defines net debt as the total principal amount drawn on the revolving credit facility less cash and cash equivalents. The Company uses net debt as a measure of financial position and believes this measure provides useful additional information to investors to evaluate the Company’s capital structure and financial leverage.

Cash G&A. Amplify defines cash G&A as general and administrative expense, less share-based compensation expense; acquisition and divestiture costs; bad debt expense; and severance payments. Cash G&A is an important non-GAAP financial measure for Amplify’s investors since it allows for analysis of G&A spend without regard to share-based compensation and other non-recurring expenses which can vary substantially from company to company. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to cash G&A is total G&A expenses.
