HighPoint reported a net loss of $16 million, or $3.72 per diluted share. Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2020 was $17 million, or $4.01 per diluted share. EBITDAX for the third quarter of 2020 was $64 million. Excluding the impact of the reverse stock split that became effective on October 30, 2020, adjusted net earnings per diluted share were $0.08. Adjusted net income (loss) and EBITDAX are non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) measures. Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures, including adjusted net income and EBITDAX to GAAP net income can be found in the tables at the end of this release.

Chief Executive Officer and President Scot Woodall commented, "The current operating environment continued to present challenges during the third quarter, but I am proud of our ability to exceed our quarterly objectives and continue to make progress toward our full year goals. Our employees remain healthy and safe and I'm pleased with our ability to execute as production exceeded guidance on significantly lower spending and we aggressively reduced operating costs. This allowed us to generate positive free cash flow, which was used to reduce net bank debt by 34%. Today, we announced an agreement to merge with Bonanza Creek in a strategic combination that provides our stakeholders an opportunity to participate in a larger DJ Basin company with a strong balance sheet and free cash flow profile. We look forward to working with the Bonanza Creek team in the coming months as we integrate the two organizations."

Q3 2020 Overview

The Company reported oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids ("NGL") production of 2.8 MMBoe for the third quarter of 2020, which exceeded the high end of the guidance range of 2.5-2.6 MMBoe. Oil volumes totaled 1.5 MMBbls or 53% of total equivalent volumes and also exceeded the high end of the guidance range of 1.4-1.46 MMBbls. Production sales volumes for the third quarter were comprised of approximately 53% oil, 25% natural gas and 22% NGLs.

For the third quarter of 2020, West Texas Intermediate ("WTI") oil prices averaged $40.93 per barrel, Northwest Pipeline ("NWPL") natural gas prices averaged $1.87 per MMBtu and NYMEX natural gas prices averaged $1.98 per MMBtu. Commodity price realizations to benchmark pricing were WTI less $4.32 per barrel of oil and NWPL less $0.51 per Mcf of gas. The NGL price averaged approximately 25% of the WTI price per barrel.

Lease operating expense ("LOE") averaged $1.87 per Boe in the third quarter of 2020 compared to $3.16 per Boe in the second quarter of 2020. Third quarter LOE was lower compared to the second quarter of 2020 as a result of operational efficiencies and cost savings.

Production tax expense averaged $(0.38) per Boe in the third quarter of 2020 compared to $0.50 per Boe in the second quarter of 2020. Production tax expense for the third quarter of 2020 included a $5 million reduction in estimated 2019 Colorado ad valorem tax that is due in 2021. Excluding the adjustment, production taxes would have averaged 6.4% as a percentage of revenues. Production tax expense is expected to average approximately 6%-7% of revenues for the remainder of 2020.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures for the third quarter of 2020 totaled $1.8 million, which consisted of flowback capital and minimal workover activity. As previously reported, due to continued oil price volatility, the Company suspended drilling and completion activity and continues to defer further activity until broader market conditions improve. Accordingly, the Company anticipates minimal capital spending for the fourth quarter of 2020.
