"Our second quarter results demonstrate what our high-quality asset base can continue to deliver, highlighted by double-digit year-over-year production growth while generating positive free cash flow for the fifth consecutive quarter," said Dan O. Dinges, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to focus our capital allocation efforts not only on driving returns-focused growth from our deep inventory base, but also on increasing our return of capital to shareholders as evidenced by our dividend increase and share repurchases during the quarter. Year-to-date we have returned over $100 million of our free cash flow to shareholders."

Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Equivalent production for the second quarter of 2017 was 173.1 billion cubic feet equivalent (Bcfe), consisting of 166.2 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of natural gas, 1,014.0 thousand barrels (Mbbls) of crude oil and condensate, and 132.4 Mbbls of natural gas liquids (NGLs).

Net income for the second quarter of 2017 was $21.5 million, or $0.05 per share, compared to a net loss of $62.9 million, or $0.14 per share, for the second quarter of 2016. Net income for the second quarter of 2017 included the impact of a non-cash, after-tax impairment charge of $43.2 million primarily associated with non-core oil and gas properties and related pipeline assets in West Virginia, Virginia and Ohio that were classified as held for sale as of June 30, 2017. Excluding the effect of this impairment and other selected items (detailed in the supplemental table below), net income was $64.0 million, or $0.14 per share, compared to a net loss of $30.2 million, or $0.07 per share, for the second quarter of 2016. Cash flow from operating activities for the second quarter of 2017 was $260.6 million, compared to $85.2 million for the second quarter of 2016. Discretionary cash flow for the second quarter of 2017 was $255.7 million, compared to $97.6 million for the second quarter of 2016. EBITDAX for the second quarter of 2017 was $274.4 million, compared to $127.6 million for the second quarter of 2016. See the supplemental tables at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures including discretionary cash flow, net income (loss) excluding selected items, EBITDAX and net debt to adjusted capitalization ratio.

Natural gas price realizations, including the impact of derivatives, were $2.38 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf) for the second quarter of 2017, a 46 percent improvement compared to second quarter of 2016. The Company’s natural gas price realizations for the quarter represented an $0.80 discount to NYMEX settlement prices. Oil price realizations, including the impact of derivatives, were $44.96 per barrel (Bbl), an increase of 12 percent compared to the second quarter of 2016. NGL price realizations were $16.59 per Bbl, an increase of 33 percent compared to the second quarter of 2016.

Operating expenses (including financing) decreased to $2.02 per thousand cubic feet equivalent (Mcfe) in the second quarter of 2017, a nine percent improvement compared to $2.22 per Mcfe in the second quarter of 2016. Cash operating expenses (excluding depreciation, depletion and amortization; stock-based compensation; exploratory dry hole cost; and amortization of debt issuance costs) decreased to $1.12 per Mcfe in the second quarter of 2017, a six percent improvement over the second quarter of 2016.

Cabot incurred a total of $195.1 million of capital expenditures during the second quarter of 2017 including $168.3 million of drilling and facilities capital associated with drilling 27 gross (21.1 net) wells and completing 26 gross (24.0 net) wells; $23.6 million of leasehold acquisition capital primarily associated with the Company’s grassroots leasing efforts in two new exploratory operating areas; and $3.2 million of other capital. Additionally, the Company contributed $5.9 million to its equity pipeline investments in the Atlantic Sunrise and Constitution projects during the second quarter of 2017.

See the supplemental table at the end of this press release reconciling the capital expenditures for the quarter.

Second Quarter 2017 Operational Highlights

Marcellus Shale

During the second quarter of 2017, Cabot averaged 1,771 million cubic feet (Mmcf) per day of net Marcellus production (2,079 gross operated Mmcf per day). During the second quarter, the Company drilled 13.7 net wells, completed 8.0 net wells and placed 6.0 net wells on production. "The average cumulative production for the 26 fourth generation wells that we placed on production during the first half of 2017 continues to outperform our 4.4 Bcf per 1,000 lateral feet type curve," noted Dinges.

Cabot is currently operating two rigs and utilizing one 24-hour completion crew in the Marcellus Shale and plans to remain at this level for the remainder of the year.

Eagle Ford Shale

Cabot’s net production in the Eagle Ford Shale during the second quarter of 2017 was 13,146 barrels of oil equivalent (Boe) per day (84% oil), an increase of nine percent sequentially compared to the first quarter of 2017. During the second quarter, the Company drilled 7.4 net wells and completed and placed on production 16.0 net wells. "Despite lower oil production volumes than originally anticipated for the quarter primarily due to operational delays and an extended clean up period for our longer lateral wells, we are confident that we will generate double-digit oil production growth for the year," commented Dinges.

Cabot is currently operating one rig and utilizing one 24-hour completion crew in the Eagle Ford Shale. The Company plans to maintain one rig for the remainder of the year and cease its completion activity for the year in October.

Share Repurchase Program Update

During the second quarter of 2017, Cabot repurchased 3.0 million shares at a weighted-average share price of $22.41. The Company has approximately 7.1 million shares remaining under its share repurchase program. "We will remain opportunistic with our share repurchase program as we continue to become more confident in the timing of infrastructure additions and the resulting increased level of positive free cash flow that we are anticipating in the coming years," stated Dinges.

Non-Core Asset Sale

During the second quarter of 2017, the Company entered into a purchase and sale agreement to sell certain legacy conventional oil and gas properties located in West Virginia, Virginia and Ohio for $41.3 million, subject to customary purchase price adjustments. Year-to-date 2017 production from these properties was 38.8 million cubic feet equivalent (Mmcfe) per day (99% gas). This transaction is expected to close by the end of the third quarter of 2017. Cabot will retain the deep rights across this approximately 780,000 net acre position. "Since we first began leasing in the Marcellus Shale in 2006, we have made efforts to high-grade our portfolio by opportunistically monetizing non-core assets and focusing our drilling activity in our lower-cost assets," said Dinges. "We have not allocated drilling capital to this legacy asset position since 2009 and had no plans to allocate capital to these assets in the future given our substantial drilling inventory in the Marcellus and Eagle Ford and our increased focus on returning capital to shareholders."

Financial Position and Liquidity

As of June 30, 2017, Cabot had total debt of $1.5 billion and cash on hand of $516.5 million. The Company’s net debt to adjusted capitalization ratio and net debt to trailing twelve months EBITDAX ratio were 27.6 percent and 1.1x, respectively, compared to 28.5 percent and 1.8x as of December 31, 2016.

Total commitments under the Company’s credit facility remain unchanged at $1.8 billion, with approximately $1.7 billion currently available to Cabot. The Company currently has no debt outstanding under the credit facility, resulting in approximately $2.2 billion of liquidity.

Third Quarter and Full-Year 2017 Guidance Update

Cabot has provided third quarter 2017 net production guidance of 1,750 to 1,800 Mmcf per day for natural gas; 13,000 to 13,750 Bbls per day for crude oil and condensate; and 1,350 to 1,450 Bbls per day for NGLs. "The mid-point of our natural gas production guidance for the third quarter implies a three percent sequential decline relative to the second quarter primarily due to mechanical issues at a third-party compressor station that began in late June and are expected to continue until late August; however, we anticipate sequential growth of natural gas volumes in the fourth quarter," noted Dinges.

The Company has reaffirmed its 2017 production growth guidance range of 8 - 12 percent (including 10 - 15 percent oil production growth) and its total 2017 program spending of $845 million, which is comprised of $775 million of exploration and production (E&P) spending and $70 million of contributions to its equity pipeline investments.
