Southwestern Energy Announces Second Quarter 2022 Results

Disciplined capital allocation strategy further enhancing shareholder value

SPRING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Southwestern Energy Company (NYSE: SWN) today announced financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

  • Generated $427 million net cash provided by operating activities, $1.2 billion net income and $368 million adjusted net income (non-GAAP)
    • $822 million Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) and $169 million free cash flow (non-GAAP)
  • Reported total net production of 438 Bcfe, or 4.8 Bcfe per day, including 4.2 Bcf per day of natural gas and 100 MBbls per day of liquids
  • Invested $585 million of capital and placed 42 wells to sales, including 23 in Appalachia and 19 in Haynesville
  • Announced a share repurchase program of up to $1 billion to complement continued prioritization of debt repayment
  • Upgraded to Ba1 by Moody’s in May; now rated one notch below investment grade by both Moody’s and S&P

“During the second quarter, Southwestern Energy continued to execute on our plan while complementing our debt repayment priority with a share repurchase program. We believe this program will narrow the disconnect between our enterprise value and our inherent asset value, as reflected in our second quarter PV-10 reserve value of $31 billion1 at strip prices. This program also underscores the free cash flow generation capability of our dual-basin assets and firm transportation portfolio providing market optionality, including being one of the nation’s largest suppliers of natural gas to LNG,” said Bill Way, Southwestern Energy President and Chief Executive Officer.

“The Company remains on track to deliver all of its 2022 operating and financial objectives. We are increasing our full-year production guidance and updating other key metrics primarily to reflect the current cost environment. The approximately 10% increase to our 2022 capital investment strengthens the delivery of our 2023 maintenance capital program and increases estimated cumulative free cash flow. We expect at current strip prices we can achieve our target debt range and also return nearly 15% of our market capitalization to shareholders by the end of next year,” continued Way.

1 A non-GAAP measure. Unaudited pre-tax PV-10 value of reserves based on five-year strip prices as of June 30, 2022.

Capital investments include an increase of $34 million and a decrease of $9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and increases of $77 million and $29 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, relating to the change in capital accruals between periods.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2022, Southwestern Energy recorded net income of $1.2 billion, or $1.05 per diluted share, primarily due to the mark-to-market impact of unsettled derivatives. Excluding this and other one-time items, adjusted net income (non-GAAP) was $368 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was $822 million. Net cash provided by operating activities was $427 million, net cash flow (non-GAAP) was $754 million and free cash flow (non-GAAP) was $169 million.

The Company primarily utilized free cash flow generated in the second quarter of 2022 to reduce the balance of its revolving credit facility and repurchase $45 million of senior notes due 2027 and 2028, which was more than offset by seasonal working capital adjustments. As of June 30, 2022, Southwestern Energy had total debt of $5.1 billion and net debt to adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) of 1.6x. At the end of the quarter, the Company had $406 million of borrowings under its revolving credit facility and $109 million in outstanding letters of credit. In May 2022, the Company received an upgrade to its long-term debt issuer rating from Moody’s to Ba1, placing the Company one notch below an investment grade credit rating by both Moody’s and S&P.

On June 21, 2022, the Company announced a program to repurchase up to $1 billion of its outstanding common stock through the end of 2023. During the second quarter, the Company repurchased approximately 2.8 million shares for a total cost of approximately $20 million at an average price of $7.10 per share.

As indicated in the table below, second quarter 2022 weighted average realized price, including $0.25 per Mcfe of transportation expenses, was $6.69 per Mcfe excluding the impact of derivatives. Including derivatives, weighted average realized price (including transportation) for the second quarter was up 38% from $2.20 per Mcfe in 2021 to $3.04 per Mcfe in 2022 primarily due to higher commodity prices including a 153% increase in NYMEX Henry Hub and a 64% increase in WTI. Second quarter 2022 weighted average realized price before transportation expense and excluding the impact of derivatives was $6.94 per Mcfe.

Explanation and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). However, management believes certain non-GAAP performance measures may provide financial statement users with additional meaningful comparisons between current results, the results of the Company’s peers and of prior periods.

One such non-GAAP financial measure is net cash flow. Management presents this measure because (i) it is accepted as an indicator of an oil and gas exploration and production company’s ability to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service or incur additional debt, (ii) changes in operating assets and liabilities relate to the timing of cash receipts and disbursements which the Company may not control and (iii) changes in operating assets and liabilities may not relate to the period in which the operating activities occurred.

Another such non-GAAP financial measure is pre-tax PV-10. Management believes that the presentation of PV-10 is relevant and useful to our investors because it presents the discounted future net cash flows attributable to our proved reserves prior to taking into account future corporate income taxes and our current tax structure. While the standardized measure is dependent on the unique tax situation of each company, PV-10 is based on a pricing methodology and discount factors that are consistent for all companies. Because of this, PV-10 can be used within the industry and by creditors and securities analysts to evaluate estimated net cash flows from proved reserves on a more comparable basis. The difference between the standardized measure and the PV-10 amount is the discounted amount of estimated future income taxes.

With respect to PV-10 calculated as of an interim date (i.e. other than year-end), it is not practical to calculate the taxes for the related interim period because GAAP does not provide for disclosure of standardized measure on an interim basis. As a result, it is not practicable for us to reconcile the PV-10 of our SEC pricing proved reserves as of June 30, 2022.

Additional non-GAAP financial measures the Company may present from time to time are free cash flow, net debt, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA, all which exclude certain charges or amounts. Management presents these measures because (i) they are consistent with the manner in which the Company’s position and performance are measured relative to the position and performance of its peers, (ii) these measures are more comparable to earnings estimates provided by securities analysts, and (iii) charges or amounts excluded cannot be reasonably estimated and guidance provided by the Company excludes information regarding these types of items. These adjusted amounts are not a measure of financial performance under GAAP.
