Management Quote

“Continued success in our drilling program and premium LLS-based price realizations during the third quarter drove another period of strong operational and financial performance for Penn Virginia,” said John A. Brooks, President and Chief Executive Officer of Penn Virginia. “The result was an increase in oil production and adjusted EBITDAX from the second quarter of 2018 of nine and 12 percent, respectively, as well as industry leading realized cash margins.”

Mr. Brooks added, “In late October, we announced an agreement to merge Penn Virginia and Denbury. We believe it is the best path forward for Penn Virginia and its shareholders. Both companies share complementary attributes, including high-quality assets and the ability to generate significant free cash flow. We also believe Denbury’s EOR expertise will unlock meaningful value from our significant contiguous acreage position. As a result, the transaction will result in a combined company that is uniquely positioned for long-term success, and provides Penn Virginia’s shareholders with excellent value and significant upside.”

Third Quarter 2018 Operating Results

Total production in the third quarter of 2018 increased four percent from the second quarter of 2018, to approximately 2.1 million BOE, or 22,912 BOEPD (77% oil). Oil production grew nine percent over second quarter of 2018 levels to 17,753 barrels of oil per day.

Penn Virginia drilled and turned to sales 10 gross (9.7 net) wells in the Eagle Ford during the third quarter of 2018. The Company currently has three rigs active with two completion spreads. During the quarter, Penn Virginia drilled its fastest three string well to date. The 19,890 foot Amber Porter (SA) Unit 2 2H well was drilled in approximately 14 days or 1,419 feet per day.

As of November 2, 2018, the Company had approximately 98,600 gross (84,700 net) acres.  Approximately 92% of Penn Virginia’s acreage is held by production. During the first nine months of 2018, the Company has either leased or renewed approximately 4,490 gross (4,250 net) acres.

Denbury Merger Transaction

On October 28, 2018, Penn Virginia entered into a definitive merger agreement (the “Agreement”) to be acquired by Denbury. Under the terms of the Agreement, shareholders of Penn Virginia will receive, subject to proration, a combination of 12.4 shares of Denbury common stock and $25.86 of cash for each share of Penn Virginia common stock, representing consideration to each Penn Virginia shareholder of $79.80 per share based on the closing price of Denbury common stock on October 26, 2018.  Penn Virginia shareholders will be permitted to elect to receive either all stock, all cash or a mix of stock and cash, in each case subject to proration, which will result in the aggregate issuance of approximately 191.667 million Denbury shares and payment by Denbury of $400 million in cash.  Upon closing of the transaction, Denbury shareholders will own approximately 71% of the combined company, and Penn Virginia shareholders will own approximately 29%.

The transaction, which is expected to close in the first quarter of 2019, is subject to the approval of Penn Virginia shareholders holding at least two-thirds of the Company’s common stock, approval by Denbury’s stockholders holding a majority of the outstanding common stock of an amendment to Denbury’s charter to increase its authorized shares and the approval by Denbury’s stockholders of the issuance of shares of Denbury common stock in the merger.  The transaction is also conditioned on clearance under the Hart-Scott Rodino Act, and other customary closing conditions.
           
Upon closing, Denbury’s board of directors will be expanded from eight directors to 10 directors, to include two members of Penn Virginia’s board of directors that are mutually agreed upon by the parties.

CERTAIN NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES - unaudited
 
Readers are reminded that non-GAAP measures are merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, or superior to financial measures prepared according to GAAP. They should be evaluated in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. It should be noted as well that our non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies. 
 
 
Reconciliation of GAAP "Net income (loss)" to Non-GAAP "Adjusted net income" 
                                           
Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income (loss) adjusted to exclude the effects, net of income taxes, of non-cash changes in the fair value of derivatives, net gains and losses on the sales of assets, acquisition, divestiture and strategic transaction costs, executive retirement costs and restructuring expenses. We believe that Non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP adjusted net income per share amounts provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance. This information facilitates management's internal comparisons to the Company's historical operating results as well as to the operating results of our competitors. Since management finds this measure to be useful, the Company believes that our investors can benefit by evaluating both non-GAAP and GAAP results. Adjusted net income non-GAAP is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to net income (loss).

Reconciliation of GAAP "Net income (loss)" to Non-GAAP "Adjusted EBITDAX"   
                                           
Adjusted EBITDAX represents net income (loss) before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization expense and share-based compensation expense, further adjusted to exclude the effects of gains and losses on sales of assets, non-cash changes in the fair value of derivatives, and special items including acquisition, divestiture and strategic transaction costs, executive retirement costs and restructuring expenses. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts for the valuation, comparison, rating, and investment recommendations of companies within the oil and gas exploration and production industry. We use this information for comparative purposes within our industry. Adjusted EBITDAX is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to net income (loss). Adjusted EBITDAX as defined by Penn Virginia may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and should be considered in conjunction with net income (loss) and other measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as operating income or cash flows from operating activities. Adjusted EBITDAX should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of Penn Virginia's results as reported under GAAP.

Realized cash operating margin and realized cash operating margin per BOE are a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that excludes certain non-recurring expenses, certain non-operating items and non-cash  expenses. We believe that the non-GAAP measure of Realized cash operating margin per BOE is useful to investors because it provides readers with a meaningful measure of our operating profitability and provides for greater comparability period-over-period.
