Martyn Willsher, Amplify’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I am proud of all we accomplished at Amplify in 2023, with the Company performing well both operationally and financially during the year. We returned Beta to production safely and effectively and have seen strong results with current average daily production exceeding pre-shutdown levels. We also formed a wholly owned subsidiary, Magnify Energy Services, to provide a variety of oilfield services to Amplify-operated wells, which allows us to better manage operating costs and operational risk. In late 2023, we began to see Magnify’s positive impact on our results, which we expect to increase in 2024. Further, we improved our balance sheet by reducing debt outstanding by approximately $95 million and established a new credit facility with a supportive bank group.”

Mr. Willsher added, “We believe 2024 has the potential to be a transformative year for the Company as we execute our strategic initiatives to develop the prolific Beta asset, further reduce leverage, and continue our focus on reducing operating costs. This year we are primarily allocating capital to high-return development opportunities at Beta, which are expected to enhance future cash flows, and toward completing the emission reduction projects at Beta, which will drive further cost efficiencies. Additionally, we recently initiated the marketing process of our assets in Bairoil, the potential sale of which will allow us to further reduce debt outstanding and provide us with the flexibility to accelerate our evaluation of return of capital alternatives. With both the Beta development program and the Bairoil marketing process underway, we are eager to capitalize on these opportunities, which we expect will deliver substantial value to our shareholders.”

2023 Year-End Proved Reserve Update

The Company’s estimated proved reserves at SEC pricing for year-end 2023 totaled 98 MMBoe, which consisted of 96 MMBoe of proved developed reserves and 2 MMBoe of proved undeveloped reserves. Total proved reserves were comprised of 42% oil, 20% NGLs, and 38% natural gas. Of the total proved reserves volumes, 30% are located in Oklahoma, 30% are in East Texas and Northern Louisiana, 24% are in Bairoil, 13% are at Beta, and 3% are in the Eagle Ford (Non-op).

At year-end 2023, Amplify’s proved reserves and proved developed reserves had PV-10 values of approximately $757 million and $716 million, respectively, using SEC pricing. Utilizing strip pricing as of February 22, 2024, the Company’s proved reserves and proved developed reserves had PV-10 values of approximately $574 million and $545 million, respectively.

Key Financial Results

During the fourth quarter of 2023, the Company reported net income of approximately $43.6 million compared to a net loss of $13.4 million in the prior quarter. The increase was primarily attributable to non-cash unrealized gains on commodity derivatives during the period.

Amplify generated $25.2 million of Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter, an increase of approximately $5.7 million from $19.5 million in the prior quarter, principally due to lower lease operating expenses and slightly higher oil production.

Free cash flow was $14.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, an increase of 136% versus the prior quarter.

Revolving Credit Facility

As of December 31, 2023, Amplify had net debt of $94 million, consisting of $115 million outstanding under its revolving credit facility and $21 million of cash and cash equivalents. Net Debt to LTM Adjusted EBITDA was 1.1x (net debt as of December 31, 2023 and 4Q23 LTM Adjusted EBITDA). The next regularly scheduled borrowing base redetermination is expected to occur in the second quarter of 2024.

Corporate Production and Pricing Update

During the fourth quarter of 2023, average daily production was approximately 20.8 MBoepd, an increase of 1% from 20.6 MBoepd in the prior quarter. Beta production was 12% higher than the prior quarter, partially offsetting natural declines in other parts of our portfolio. The Company’s product mix for the quarter was 41% crude oil, 18% NGLs, and 41% natural gas. For the full-year 2023, the Company produced 20.5 MBoepd which was within our full-year guidance range.

Total oil, natural gas and NGL revenues for the fourth quarter of 2023 were approximately $78.2 million, before the impact of derivatives, compared to $76.4 million in the prior quarter. The Company realized a loss on commodity derivatives of $3.2 million during the quarter. Oil and gas revenues, net of realized hedges, increased $1.8 million for the fourth quarter compared to the prior quarter, despite slightly lower oil and NGL prices net of hedges.

Costs and Expenses

Lease operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2023 were approximately $34.6 million, or $18.14 per Boe, a $2.4 million decrease compared to third-quarter operating expenses. The Company also benefited from a $1.5 million accounting adjustment at Beta. For the full-year 2023, lease operating expenses were approximately $139.6 million, or $18.66 per Boe. Cost reduction efforts during the year allowed the Company to perform better than the mid-point of the guidance range. These efforts are expected to continue through 2024 and beyond.

Severance and Ad Valorem taxes in the fourth quarter were approximately $5.9 million, an increase of $1.0 million compared to $4.9 million in the prior quarter. Severance and Ad Valorem taxes as a percentage of revenue were approximately 7.6% this quarter compared to 6.5% in the previous quarter. For the full-year 2023, Severance and Ad Valorem taxes were approximately $21.3 million, or 7.4% as a percentage of revenue, which was lower than the mid-point of our guidance range.

Amplify incurred $5.1 million, or $2.66 per Boe, of gathering, processing and transportation expenses in the fourth quarter, compared to $5.0 million, or $2.63 per Boe, in the previous quarter. For the full-year 2023, gathering, processing and transportation expenses were approximately $20.8 million, or $2.78 per Boe, and were lower than the mid-point of our guidance range.

Fourth quarter Cash G&A expenses were $6.2 million, a decrease of $0.3 million from $6.5 million in the prior quarter. For the full-year 2023, Cash G&A expenses were $26.4 million, or $3.53 per Boe, and were within our guidance range.

Depreciation, depletion and amortization expense for the fourth quarter totaled $7.6 million, or $4.00 per Boe, compared to $7.5 million, or $3.95 per Boe, in the prior quarter.

Net interest expense was $3.8 million this quarter, a decrease of $0.7 million from $4.5 million in the prior quarter.

Amplify recorded current income tax benefit of $2.3 million for the fourth quarter. In 2023, Amplify incurred approximately $4.8 million in cash income taxes. Going forward we expect to continue maintaining a cash income tax paying position.

Capital Investment Update

Cash capital investment during the fourth quarter of 2023 was approximately $7.1 million, a $2.6 million decrease from $9.7 million in the prior quarter. The majority of capital investment in the fourth quarter related to workover and facility projects at Beta. Also in the fourth quarter, the Company farmed out deep rights in certain acreage in East Texas for receipts of $1.2 million, which is reflected as a reduction to capital investments. For the full-year 2023, Amplify’s capital investments totaled $33.7 million, which was lower than the midpoint of our guidance. Capital was primarily directed to well workover projects, along with emissions and cost reducing facility projects at Beta.

The following table details Amplify’s capital incurred during the fourth quarter and full-year 2023:

  Fourth Quarter Full-Year  2023 Capital 2023 Capital  ($ MM) ($ MM)Bairoil $(0.1) $3.5 Beta $7.7  $19.0 Oklahoma $0.5  $4.7 East Texas / North Louisiana $(1.2) $(0.6)Eagle Ford (Non-op) $0.2  $7.1 Total Capital Invested $7.1  $33.7      

2024 Operations & Development Plan

The following table details Amplify’s 2024 projected capital investments of $50 – $60 million:

Capital Investment by Type (% of Total):   Beta Development 40% Beta Facility 26% Workovers & Other Facilities 29% Non-op Development 5% Total Capital Investments: 100%       

Amplify’s 2024 operations and development plan is designed to further unlock the underlying value of the Company’s assets. We intend to do this by executing a limited development program and completing the large facility projects at Beta, executing on low-cost, high-return workover projects, and continuing to reduce operating costs through cost saving initiatives utilizing Magnify Energy Services.

In the first quarter of 2024, Amplify initiated the previously announced four-well development program at Beta. If successful, the program is expected to yield substantial upside for the Company and bolster long-term profitability and operating margins. Initial production results for the first two wells are expected in the second quarter of 2024, with the final two wells coming online in the fourth quarter. At current oil prices, these wells project IRRs in excess of 100% and expected paybacks of less than one year. Additionally, the Company is deploying capital to facility projects at Beta which will improve operational efficiencies, reduce power expenses and significantly reduce emissions. By the end of 2024, the Company expects to see an increase in oil production and a lower cost structure at Beta which will materially increase the long-term value of the asset.

At Bairoil, we continue to focus on enhancing water-alternating-gas injection performance through targeted well recompletions and conversions, which helps offset the asset’s nominal production declines. Furthermore, prior facility investments and enhanced operational efficiencies have enabled the Company to reduce the frequency of planned maintenance turnarounds, which will substantially reduce capital costs and production downtime.

Amplify’s operating strategy in Oklahoma remains focused on prioritizing a stable free cash flow profile by managing production through an active workover program, artificial lift enhancements, extending well run-times and continuing to reduce operating costs.

In East Texas, we continue to focus on prudent management of the field, such as optimizing field compression, artificial lift enhancement, and equipment insourcing, which is expected to improve the production profile and lower lease operating costs. Should natural gas prices improve throughout the year, the Company has the ability to opportunistically exploit additional workover opportunities and participate in non-operated development prospects in the basin.

In August 2023, we formed Magnify Energy Services to in-source specific oilfield services to improve service reliability and to reduce overall operating expenses for the Company. For 2023, Magnify added $0.5 million to Adjusted EBITDA. In 2024, we expect to invest $1.0 million of capital in Magnify, which is projected to generate approximately $2 – $3 million of Adjusted EBITDA and to partially offset operating expenses.

In the Eagle Ford, Amplify expects to participate in approximately 0.5 – 1.0 net non-operated wells with highly accretive returns, which are currently scheduled to be drilled in late 2024 and completed in the first half of 2025.

Full-Year 2024 Guidance

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 2024 guidance is based on its current expectations regarding capital investment levels and flat commodity prices for crude oil of $75/Bbl (WTI) and natural gas of $2.50/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, PV-10 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; income tax expenses; depreciation, depletion and amortization; accretion of asset retirement obligations; gains or losses on commodity derivatives; cash settlements received on or paid expired commodity derivatives; amortization of gains associated with terminated commodity derivatives; acquisition and divestiture related costs; share-based compensation expenses; exploration costs; loss on settlement of AROs; bad debt expense; pipeline incident loss; pipeline incident settlement; LOPI-timing differences; litigation settlement; and net operating cash flows, effective date to closing for acquisitions. 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.
PV-10. PV-10 is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents the present value of estimated future cash inflows from proved oil and natural gas reserves that are calculated using the unweighted arithmetic average first-day-of-the-month prices for the prior 12 months, less future development and operating costs, discounted at 10% per annum to reflect the timing of future cash flows. The most directly comparable GAAP measure to PV-10 is standardized measure. PV-10 differs from standardized measure in its treatment of estimated future income taxes, which are excluded from PV-10. Amplify believes the presentation of PV-10 provides useful information because it is widely used by investors in evaluating oil and natural gas companies without regard to specific income tax characteristics of such entities. PV-10 is not intended to represent the current market value of our estimated proved reserves. PV-10 should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the standardized measure as defined under GAAP.

The Company also presents PV-10 at strip pricing, which is PV-10 adjusted for price sensitivities. As GAAP does not prescribe a comparable GAAP measure for PV-10 of reserves adjusted for pricing sensitivities, it is not practicable for us to reconcile PV-10 at strip pricing to a standardized measure or any other GAAP measure.

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.
