Management Comments
Sean Woolverton, SilverBow’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We finished 2017 with another strong quarter operationally, with both production and operating costs comparing favorably to our guidance. Fourth quarter production levels were driven by strong base production performance combined with bringing two additional net wells online in our southern Eagle Ford gas position as well as two net wells in Fasken. We continue to focus on driving efficiencies with a best-in-class cost structure in the basin as evidenced by lease operating expenses declining 17% on a per unit basis compared to third quarter levels. This strong operational performance generated adjusted EBITDA of $42.0 million, an increase of 35% compared to the third quarter.”
Woolverton commented further, “I’m also pleased to announce we reported reserve growth of 38% to just over 1.0 trillion cubic feet of natural gas equivalent compared to year-end 2016 levels. We believe we have significant potential to grow proved reserves within our existing asset base as we strategically develop our Eagle Ford acreage. Additionally, after adding over approximately 36,000 acres to our Eagle Ford position in 2017, our focus now shifts to execution and demonstrating the consistency of our results and our full resource potential. We have taken steps to strengthen our operating team and now have a position of scale that provides us with substantial drilling inventory. We enter 2018 in a strong position to continue generating production and EBITDA growth.”
OPERATIONS HIGHLIGHTS
During the fourth quarter 2017, the Company drilled five net wells while completing four net wells. For the full year, the Company drilled 18 net wells and completed 22 net wells. The Company drilled in all areas of its portfolio in 2017 with a focus on demonstrating the commercial viability of the Company’s extensive drilling inventory. With solid results across all areas, SilverBow has successfully transferred its learnings from Fasken to other assets of the Eagle Ford, including a successful seven well program in the condensate window in Artesia as well as experiencing encouraging initial results in Oro Grande and Uno Mas.
SilverBow completed its first well in Uno Mas in the fourth quarter. The well was drilled with a 7,500-foot lateral and completed with approximately 2,500 pounds of proppant per foot of lateral. Results to date are encouraging and the Company will have more to report on this well on their first quarter 2018 earnings conference call. The Company plans on drilling three net wells in Uno Mas in 2018. Also during the quarter, SilverBow completed its second well in Oro Grande, the NMC 2H. The Company drilled the NMC 2H with a 7,500-foot lateral and completed with 2,500 pounds of proppant per foot of lateral, compared to 3,500 pounds of proppant per foot of lateral for the NMC 1H. The Company moved a drilling rig back to Oro Grande in the first quarter of 2018 to drill a two well pad. The Company plans on drilling five net wells in Oro Grande during 2018.
SilverBow’s most recent six well pad drilled in Fasken during the fourth quarter included three wells targeting the Lower Eagle Ford and three wells targeting the Upper Eagle Ford. This pad was recently completed and utilized 300 foot frac stage spacing and 1,500 pounds of proppant per foot of lateral. The average lateral length for this six well pad was 7,500 feet. Early results from this six well pad are encouraging and further support multi-zone development and added efficiencies for our Fasken acreage and other assets. The Company plans to drill approximately 13 net wells in Fasken in 2018.
PRODUCTION VOLUMES, OPERATING COSTS, AND REALIZED PRICES
SilverBow’s total net production for the fourth quarter averaged approximately 177 Mmcfe/d, which was above the high end of guidance. Production mix during the fourth quarter consisted of approximately 79% natural gas, 13% NGLs, and 8% oil.

2



Lease operating expenses during the fourth quarter of $0.34/Mcfe came in better than the Company’s guidance range of $0.38/Mcfe to $0.42/Mcfe primarily driven by continued cost initiatives enacted throughout the year.
Transportation and processing expenses came in at $0.32/Mcfe while production and ad valorem taxes were 3.1% of oil and gas revenues for the quarter. Production and ad valorem taxes were positively impacted by certain, non-reoccurring tax refunds in the quarter.
General and administrative costs of $0.45/Mcfe were higher than the $0.42/Mcfe reported in the third quarter primarily due to one-time severance costs related to several officer departures.
The Company’s average realized natural gas price, excluding the effect of hedging, was $2.88/Mcf compared to $3.01/Mcf in the third quarter of 2017. The average realized crude oil selling price, excluding the effect of hedging, was $57.64/Bbl in the fourth quarter of 2017, up from $46.93/Bbl in the third quarter of 2017. The average realized NGL selling price in the fourth quarter of 2017 was $24.37/Bbl versus $21.67/Bbl in the third quarter of 2017.
YEAR-END 2017 RESERVES
SilverBow reported year-end proved reserves of 1.0 trillion cubic feet equivalent (Tcfe), an increase of 38% over year-end 2016. Specific highlights from the Company’s year-end reserve report include:
Finding and development costs of $0.59/Mcfe
All-sources reserve replacement of 609%
Standardized Measure of $732 million
PV-10 value (non-GAAP measure) of $805 million, an increase of 82% over prior year

As of December 31, 2017, 82% of SilverBow’s year-end proved reserves were natural gas and 97% were located in the Eagle Ford Shale. Approximately 45% of the year-end proved reserves were classified as proved developed and 55% were classified as proved undeveloped.
Total costs incurred during 2017 were $203 million, which included approximately $149 million for development costs, $45 million for leasehold acquisition and prospect costs, and $9 million for property acquisitions.

The SEC prices used for reporting SilverBow’s year-end 2017 proved reserves, which have been adjusted for basis and quality differentials, were $2.95/Mcf for natural gas, $20.32/Bbl for natural gas liquids and $50.38/Bbl for crude oil compared to $2.43/Mcf, $16.13/Bbl, and $41.07/Bbl in 2016. Assuming SEC prices, the pre-tax present value of future net cash flows discounted at 10% (“PV-10”) of the year-end 2017 proved reserves were $805 million with a Standardized Measure of $732 million.
FINANCIAL RESULTS
The Company reported total oil and gas revenues of $58.7 million for the fourth quarter 2017 which increased 20% compared to third quarter 2017 levels. On a GAAP basis, the Company reported net income of $25.1 million for the fourth quarter, which includes a gain on the value of the Company's hedge portfolio of $3.4 million.
The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $42.0 million. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. Please see the tables included with today's news release for a reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA.
Capital expenditures incurred during the fourth quarter totaled approximately $50 million inclusive of $22 million spent on acquisitions, leasing, and prospect development. In addition, the Company spent $16.3 million associated with the divestiture of the Bay De Chene field located in South Louisiana.
Effective December 22, 2017, the Company closed a Purchase and Sale contract for the Company's wellbores and facilities in Bay De Chene for $16.3 million, which will be paid by the Company, as seller. The buyer assumed approximately $20.9 million of plugging and abandonment liability. Please see the Company’s Form 10-K filing, which the Company expects to be filed on Thursday, March 1, 2018, for more information regarding this transaction.

AWP OLMOS SALE UPDATE
On January 24th, 2018, SilverBow Resources executed a definitive purchase and sale agreement to divest certain wells in its AWP Olmos area for approximately $28.8 million plus the assumption of $6.2 million of asset retirement obligations, subject to customary purchase price adjustments. This transaction is expected to close on or about March 1, 2018 and has an effective date of January 1, 2018. These assets are located in McMullen County, Texas and include 491 wells with total proved reserves of 28 Bcfe at 12/31/17 (100% proved developed). Full year 2017 production from these properties was approximately 9.5 Mmcfe/d (57% natural gas). Cash proceeds from the sale will be used to repay outstanding borrowings under the Company’s revolving credit facility. SilverBow anticipates that its borrowing base will remain unchanged at $330 million after closing this transaction and will be reviewed as normal during its regularly scheduled Spring redetermination.

2018 GUIDANCE
The Company recently announced a 2018 capital expenditure budget of $245 to $265 million, which provides for average full year production of 175 to 195 Mmcfe/d. For the first quarter 2018, the Company is guiding for 156 to 162 Mmcfe/d. Additional detail concerning the Company's first quarter 2018 and full year financial and operational guidance can be found in the table included with today’s news release and the Corporate Presentation uploaded to the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website before the conference call.

The Company recently contracted a second high-spec drilling rig. SilverBow is currently mobilizing this rig with plans to commence drilling later in the first quarter with completions from this rig turning to production early in the third quarter. The Company plans on testing multiple initiatives in 2018 aimed at further delineating its acreage position as well as testing stimulation designs and choke management protocols. The Company is also assessing the viability of stacked development in certain areas of its portfolio. These multi-zone development initiatives have the potential to significantly increase the Company’s drilling inventory and allow for a more robust co-development pattern across our portfolio.

HEDGING UPDATE
Hedging continues to be an important element of SilverBow’s strategy. The Company maintains an active hedging program to provide predictable cash flows while still allowing for flexibility in capturing increases in prices. SilverBow has approximately 55% of total production volumes hedged for full year 2018 using the mid-point of production guidance. The Company continues to layer on additional hedges. Please see the Company’s Form 10-K filing, which the Company expects to be filed on Thursday, March 1, 2018, for a detailed summary of derivative contracts.

CAPITAL STRUCTURE AND LIQUIDITY
The Company had liquidity of approximately $260 million as of December 31, 2017, primarily consisting of availability on the Company’s $330 million bank credit facility. The Company closed on $200 million of Senior Secured Second Lien Notes on December 15, 2017. For more information regarding the Second Lien Notes, please see the Company’s Corporate Presentation posted on www.sbow.com.
As of February 28, 2018, the Company had 11.6 million total common shares outstanding.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Reconciliation of Net Income (GAAP) to Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP)
and Standardized Measure (GAAP) to PV-10 (Non-GAAP)
(In thousands)
(Unaudited)

We present adjusted EBITDA attributable to common stockholders (“Adjusted EBITDA”) in addition to our reported net income (loss) in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that is used as a supplemental financial measure by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks and others, to assess our operating performance as compared to that of other companies in our industry, without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical costs basis. It is also used to assess our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures.

Our Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income (loss), operating income (loss), cash flows provided by (used in) operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Our Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of another company because all companies may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner.

Finding and Development (“F&D”) Cost Calculation:
(Unaudited)

F&D costs are commonly used to assist in the evaluation of how much it costs the Company, on a per Mcfe basis, to add proved reserves. We present F&D costs in addition to and used in conjunction with our financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Due to various factors, including but not limited to timing differences, F&D costs do not necessarily reflect precisely the costs associated with particular reserves. Further, our F&D costs may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of another company because all companies may not calculate F&D costs in the same manner.

F&D All-In costs are calculated by dividing the total acquisition, exploration, and development costs for the year by extensions, discoveries, and other additions, purchases of minerals in place, and total revisions for the year.

Reserve replacement ratio is calculated by dividing the sum of extensions, discoveries, and other additions, purchases of minerals in place, and total revisions for the year by production.
