Kimbell Royalty Partners Announces Record Second Quarter 2018 Results

FORT WORTH, Texas, Aug. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kimbell Royalty Partners, LP (NYSE:KRP) ("Kimbell Royalty Partners" or "Kimbell"), a leading owner of oil and natural gas mineral and royalty interests across 28 states, today announced financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Q2 distribution of $0.43 per common unit, up $0.01 or 2% per unit from Q1 and up 43% compared with Q2 last year
  • Average daily production approximately flat from Q1 and up 18% from Q2 last year, with total Q2 2018 production of 330,621 Boe consisting of 108,201 Bbls of oil, 999,019 Mcf of natural gas and 55,917 Bbls of natural gas liquids
  • Oil, natural gas and NGL revenues of $11.2 million, flat from Q1 and up 45% from Q2 last year
  • Net income of $1.4 million, a $1.1 million increase from Q2 last year
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $7.7 million, up 1% from Q1 and up 63% from Q2 last year

Recent Developments

  • Closed acquisition of certain entities owned by Haymaker Minerals & Royalties, LLC and Haymaker Resources, LP for approximately $445 million on July 12, 2018 (the "Haymaker Acquisition")
  • Upsized revolving credit facility to $200 million, with approximately $52 million of availability following the closing of the Haymaker Acquisition
  • Filed preliminary information statement on Schedule 14C with the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to a proposed election to change Kimbell's status from a pass-through partnership to a taxable entity, with an expected effective date of the tax status change during third quarter 2018

"This was a very exciting and transformative quarter for our company," said Robert Ravnaas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Kimbell Royalty Partners' general partner.

"In mid-July, we closed the Haymaker Acquisition.  This was a transformational acquisition for our company, and we are already pleased with the recent performance of the related acreage.  Following the Haymaker Acquisition, we expect our distributable cash flow per unit will continue to increase, and as of August 1, 2018, we had 72 rigs actively working on our combined properties.

"Our unitholders benefitted from our continued strong financial performance through an increase in our second quarter distribution, which is our fifth consecutive increase since our initial public offering in February 2017. During the second quarter, crude oil pricing increased, although a decline in pricing for NGLs and natural gas resulted in flat overall pricing for the quarter.  Average daily production was also essentially flat versus the first quarter but increased 18% compared to the second quarter a year ago.  We expect to begin benefitting from production related to the assets acquired in the Haymaker Acquisition in the third quarter," Mr. Ravnaas said.

Second Quarter 2018 Distribution

On July 27, 2018, the board of directors of Kimbell Royalty GP, LLC, the general partner of Kimbell Royalty Partners, declared a cash distribution of $0.43 per common unit for the second quarter of 2018.  The distribution will be paid on August 13, 2018 to common unitholders of record at the close of business on August 6, 2018. This represented a 2% increase from the prior quarter's distribution and a 43% increase from the second quarter last year.

The number of common units outstanding as of the record date for the second quarter distribution included 10 million common units issued as partial consideration in the Haymaker Acquisition.  Under the terms of the definitive agreements for the Haymaker Acquisition, Kimbell is entitled to net revenues for production from the acquired properties on and after the effective date of April 1, 2018.  Kimbell paid a portion of these net revenues (approximately $4.3 million) in the second quarter 2018 distribution.  Net revenues for production from the acquired properties will be recorded on Kimbell's consolidated statement of operations for periods on or after July 12, 2018, the closing date of the transaction. 

Financial Highlights

Total revenue including the impact of a $0.5 million loss on our commodity derivative instruments was roughly flat from the prior quarter, at $10.7 million, and up from $7.8 million from the second quarter last year.  Second quarter net income was $1.4 million, or $0.08 per common unit, compared to a net loss of $52.8 million in the prior quarter and net income of $252,000 in the second quarter last year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter totaled $7.7 million, versus $7.6 million in the prior quarter and $4.7 million in the second quarter last year.  (Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure.  Please see a reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measures at the end of this news release).  Average realized price per barrel (Bbl) for oil was $63.45, natural gas per thousand cubic feet (Mcf) was $2.59, and natural gas liquids (NGLs) per Bbl was $25.03

Production

Second quarter average daily production was essentially flat versus the prior quarter, with 3,633 barrels of oil equivalent (Boe) per day, for total production of 330,621 Boe.  Revenues were derived 73% from liquids (61% from oil and 12% from NGLs), 23% from natural gas and 4% from lease bonuses.  Production was composed of approximately 50% liquids (33% oil and 17% NGLs) and 50% natural gas on a 6:1 basis. 

Acquisitions

On July 12, 2018, Kimbell closed the Haymaker Acquisition for $210 million in cash and 10 million common units, resulting in a total valuation of approximately $445 million based on a closing price of $23.54 per unit for Kimbell's common units as of July 12, 2018.  Kimbell funded the cash portion of the purchase price with net proceeds from a private placement of 7.0% Series A Cumulative Convertible Preferred Units to certain affiliates of Apollo Capital Management, L.P. and with borrowings under its upsized $200 million revolving credit facility, each of which closed simultaneously with the Haymaker Acquisition.

Liquidity

At June 30, 2018, Kimbell had $43 million outstanding under its prior $50 million revolving credit facility (with an accordion feature permitting aggregate commitments to be increased up to $100 million).  As of June 30, 2018, Kimbell was in compliance with all related financial covenants, and its total debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio was 1.4x. 

As of August 1, 2018 and following the closing of the Haymaker Acquisition, Kimbell had $148 million outstanding under its upsized $200 million revolving credit facility. 

Hedging

Kimbell hedges its daily production based on the amount of debt and/or preferred equity as a percent of its enterprise value. Prior to the Haymaker Acquisition, this amount constituted approximately 10% of daily oil and natural gas production.  Following the closing of the Haymaker Acquisition, Kimbell hedged daily oil and natural gas production of approximately 30% of its post-acquisition production.  Please see the supplemental schedule at the end of this news release for hedging details.

Supplemental Schedules

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Adjusted EBITDA is used as a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure by management and external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies.  We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful because it allows us to more effectively evaluate our operating performance and compare the results of our operations period to period without regard to our financing methods or capital structure.  In addition, management uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate cash flow available to pay distributions to our unitholders.  We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, net of capitalized interest, non-cash unit-based compensation, transaction costs, unrealized gains and losses on commodity derivative instruments, impairment of oil and natural gas properties, income taxes and depreciation, depletion and accretion expense.  Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of net income (loss) or net cash provided by operating activities as determined by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP").  We exclude the items listed above from net income (loss) in arriving at Adjusted EBITDA because these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired.  Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a company's financial performance, such as a company's cost of capital and tax structure, as well as historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are components of Adjusted EBITDA.  Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income, oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids revenues, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP.  Our computations of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.  We expect that cash available for distribution for each quarter will generally equal our Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter, less cash needed for debt service and other contractual obligations and fixed charges and reserves for future operating or capital needs that the board of directors may determine is appropriate.
