Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Unit was $90.8 million, or $1.71 per diluted share, compared to $78.4 million, or $1.51 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2017 (see Non-GAAP financial measures below).

For the first nine months of 2018, net income attributable to Unit was $32.6 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, compared to $28.7 million, or $0.56 per share, for the first nine months of 2017.

OIL AND NATURAL GAS SEGMENT INFORMATION

For the quarter, total equivalent production was 4.4 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMBoe), a 3% increase over the second quarter of 2018. Oil and natural gas liquids (NGLs) production represented 45% of total equivalent production. Oil production was 7,521 barrels per day, a decrease of 1% from the second quarter of 2018. NGLs production was 13,889 barrels per day, a 3% increase over the second quarter of 2018. Natural gas production was 155,825 thousand cubic feet (Mcf) per day, a 3% increase over the second quarter of 2018. Per day equivalent production for the first nine months of 2018 was 46.7 thousand barrels of oil equivalent (MBoe).

Unit’s average realized per barrel equivalent price for the quarter was $24.15, a 6% increase over the second quarter of 2018. Unit’s average oil price was $57.72 per barrel, an increase of 2% over the second quarter of 2018. Unit’s average NGLs price was $25.66 per barrel, an increase of 16% over the second quarter of 2018. Unit’s average natural gas price was $2.27 per Mcf, an increase of 4% over the second quarter of 2018. All prices in this paragraph include the effects of derivative contracts.

In the Southern Oklahoma Hoxbar Oil Trend (SOHOT), in Grady County, Oklahoma, Unit completed the Schenk Trust #2-17HXL well and the #3-17HXL well, which were brought online during August. Each well had an IP30 of approximately 1,500 Boe per day with an oil cut of 75%. Both wells had laterals in excess of 7,000 feet. Unit continues to pursue opportunities to expand its position in the oily areas.

In the Texas Panhandle, Unit recently drilled and completed two Granite Wash "G" wells in the Buffalo Wallow field. The wells are in the early flow-back stages, and it is too soon to discuss EUR's and IP30's. The first of the two wells is currently flowing in excess of 9 MMcfe per day.

Pinkston said: “Our oil and natural gas segment generated solid production growth for the quarter during which we increased activity levels to six operated rigs for a brief period. We have now reduced our operated rig count to three rigs to keep annual capital expenditures in line with our anticipated cash flows."

Unit averaged 34.2 drilling rigs working during the quarter, an increase of 6% over the second quarter of 2018. Per day drilling rig rates averaged $17,589, a 2% increase over the second quarter of 2018. For the first nine months of 2018, per day drilling rig rates averaged $17,327, a 7% increase over the first nine months of 2017. Average per day operating margin for the quarter was $6,291 (before elimination of intercompany drilling rig profit of $1.2 million). This compares to second quarter 2018 average operating margin of $5,412 (before elimination of intercompany drilling rig profit of $0.8 million), an increase of 16%, or $879. Average per day operating margin for the first nine months of 2018 was $5,647 (before elimination of intercompany drilling rig profit of $2.4 million). This compares to the first nine months of 2017 average operating margin of $4,671 (before elimination of intercompany drilling rig profit of $1.0 million), an increase of 21%, or $976 (in each case regarding eliminating intercompany drilling rig profit see Non-GAAP financial measures below).

Pinkston said: “Our contract drilling segment had another strong quarter. Rig utilization remained at 34 rigs working at the end of the quarter, and we currently have 34 rigs operating. All 11 of our BOSS rigs are operating under contract. We obtained long-term contracts for our 12th and 13th BOSS rigs which will be completed and placed into service in the first quarter of 2019. We continue to be very pleased with the performance and acceptance of our BOSS rigs. We had 19 long-term contracts (contracts with original terms ranging from six months to three years in length) as of the end of the quarter. Of those contracts, five are up for renewal in 2018, 13 in 2019, and one in 2020. The long-term contracts at the end of the quarter exclude the two BOSS rig contracts pertaining to the new rigs under construction.”

Pinkston said: “During the quarter, we continued to grow the midstream business through organic opportunities. We connected several new wells to our Cashion gathering and processing system. That system will serve our new Reeding gas processing plant currently under construction. The new plant is expected to be placed in service in the first quarter of 2019. We recently added new gathering lines and compression for the J R Miller pad on our Pittsburgh Mills gathering system in Pennsylvania for a third-party operator. The operator plans to bring the pad on-line early in the first quarter of 2019. NGLs recoveries continue to increase with improved NGLs pricing. We continue to pursue additional organic and strategic growth opportunities.”

FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Unit ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $91.6 million and long-term debt of $643.9 million, comprised solely of senior subordinated notes (net of unamortized discount and debt issuance costs) and no borrowings under the Unit or Superior credit agreements. On October 18, 2018, Unit signed the Fifth Amendment to its credit agreement in connection with the renewal and extension of its senior credit facility through October 18, 2023. The agreement is subject to an elected commitment and available borrowing base of $425 million. In addition to extending the term, the amendment increased the company’s flexibility around the issuance of senior notes and lowered pricing on certain borrowings and fees.

The website includes those disclosures in the 'Investor Information' sections. So, investors should monitor that portion of the website, besides following the press releases, SEC filings, and public conference calls and webcasts.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Unit Corporation reports its financial results under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The company believes certain non-GAAP measures provide users of its financial information and its management additional meaningful information to evaluate the performance of the company.

This press release includes net income and earnings per share and the effect of the cash-settled commodity derivatives, its reconciliation of segment operating profit, its drilling segment’s average daily operating margin before elimination of intercompany drilling rig profit and bad debt expense, its cash flow from operations before changes in operating assets and liabilities, and its reconciliation of net income to adjusted EBITDA.

Below is a reconciliation of GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP financial measures for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered by themselves or a substitute for results reported under GAAP. This non-GAAP information should be considered by the reader in addition to, but not instead of, the financial statements prepared under GAAP. The non-GAAP financial information presented may be determined or calculated differently by other companies and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures.
