FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SilverBow Resources Announces Third Quarter 2018 Results and Increased Borrowing Base
Houston, TX - November 6, 2018 - SilverBow Resources, Inc. (NYSE: SBOW) (“SilverBow” or the “Company”) today announced operating and financial results for the third quarter of 2018. Highlights include:
Net production averaged approximately 192 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent per day (“MMcfe/d”), an increase of 20% compared to the second quarter
Revenues of $65.0 million, Net Income of $7.1 million, and Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) of $44.5 million
Lease operating expenses of $0.24/Mcfe compared to $0.41/Mcfe in the third quarter of 2017, a decrease of 41%
Crude oil and natural gas realizations in the third quarter were 103% and 102% of WTI and Henry Hub, respectively, excluding hedging, as a result of favorable basis pricing in the Eagle Ford
Latest pads in Uno Mas (two wells), AWP (two wells) and Fasken (six wells) yielded 30-day average initial production rates (“IPs”) of 24.6 MMcfe/d, 29.3 MMcfe/d and 51.9 MMcfe/d, respectively
Upper Eagle Ford development wells in Webb County exceeding type curve by 8%
Borrowing base increase to $410 million following the Company’s semi-annual redetermination, representing an $80 million increase from the spring borrowing base redetermination

MANAGEMENT COMMENTS
Sean Woolverton, SilverBow’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our third quarter results demonstrate both the quality and growth potential of our assets. We are now realizing the accelerated production growth from the addition of a second rig to our drilling program earlier in the year. This increase in production, coupled with our continued focus on becoming the lowest cost operator, has led to adjusted EBITDA of $44.5 million, an increase of 42% compared to the second quarter. As a further



 

indication of performance on both the execution and cost fronts, our recently completed semi-annual redetermination resulted in an $80 million increase to our borrowing base and further strengthened an already solid liquidity position."
Mr. Woolverton commented further, "Our operations team is executing on several initiatives which include testing landing targets, high intensity slickwater completion designs, proppant intensities and further delineation of the Southern Eagle Ford gas fairway. We are pleased with the well performance that we are seeing across all areas of our portfolio. Given drilling cycle-time compression, the testing of high intensity completion designs, and the drilling of higher working interest wells, we increased our 2018 capital expenditure budget to a range of $290 to $310 million. By building on the momentum in the second half of 2018 and continuing to advance our Eagle Ford growth strategy, we are well positioned to carry forward our notable production ramp into 2019."
OPERATIONS HIGHLIGHTS
The third quarter marked the second full quarter of running two drilling rigs for the Company. As such, capital activity expanded accordingly, and the production growth is now being realized as wells from this activity are completed and brought to sales. During the third quarter, the Company brought 13 net wells to sales versus seven net wells during the first half of the year. For the full year, the Company expects to drill and complete 34-35 and 29-30 net wells, respectively. This is an increase from our prior guidance of drilling and completing 31-33 and 25-27 net wells, respectively, and is due to drilling cycle-time compression and efficient scheduling of frac operations. The Company has drilled in all areas of its portfolio in 2018 and more recently has shifted its activity to higher working interest wells.
During the third quarter, the Company drilled 10 gross (nine net) wells while completing 12 gross (11 net) wells. The Company completed two-well pads in its Oro Grande, Uno Mas and Artesia areas, a three-well pad in its Fasken area, and the final three wells of a six-well pad in its Fasken area. The Fasken six-well pad included three Upper Eagle Ford wells and three Lower Eagle Ford wells. The Company plans to operate two drilling rigs for the remainder of the year. The Company’s high specification rig, added in early March, will continue to focus on the western portion of the Company's Eagle Ford portfolio in Webb and southwest La Salle counties. The other drilling rig will focus on the Company's Southern Eagle Ford and AWP areas.
The Company is strategically employing high intensity slickwater completion techniques across its portfolio. The Company utilized slickwater designs on 75% of the total wells completed in the third quarter. Overall, the Company averaged a completion intensity of 3,100 pounds of proppant and 65 barrels of fluid per foot of lateral, an increase of 51% and 93%, respectively, over the wells completed in the first half of the year. In the third quarter, the Company completed an Uno Mas well with 4,500 pounds of proppant and 62 barrels of fluid per foot of lateral, which was its largest fracture stimulation by



 

proppant intensity to date and the largest Eagle Ford frac by proppant intensity in La Salle County history. Early results from these higher intensity fracs indicate they outperform the gel-based hybrid style, medium intensity completions the Company has historically employed. The Company continues to integrate new concepts to improve asset performance, increase capital efficiency and reduce operating costs.
PRODUCTION VOLUMES, OPERATING COSTS, AND REALIZED PRICES
The Company's total net production for the third quarter averaged approximately 192 MMcfe/d. Production mix for the third quarter consisted of approximately 83% natural gas, 12% NGLs, and 5% oil.
Lease operating expenses of $0.24/Mcfe were lower than the $0.41/Mcfe reported in the third quarter of 2017, a decrease of 41%. Lease operating expenses for the third quarter came in below the low end of the Company’s guidance range, primarily driven by continued cost reduction initiatives.
After deducting $1.6 million of non-cash compensation expense, cash general and administrative costs of $3.9 million were significantly lower than the $4.6 million reported in the third quarter of 2017. Cash general and administrative costs compared favorably to guidance due to ongoing efforts to reduce administrative costs.
Transportation and processing expenses came in at $0.35/Mcfe while production and ad valorem taxes were 3.8% of oil and gas revenues for the third quarter, both metrics coming in below the low end of the Company's guidance range, primarily due to a favorable ad valorem tax adjustment.
The Company’s average realized natural gas price, excluding the effect of hedging, was $2.97/Mcf compared to $2.93/Mcf in the second quarter. The average realized crude oil selling price, excluding the effect of hedging, was $71.68/Bbl in the quarter, up from $68.53/Bbl in the second quarter. The average realized NGL selling price in the quarter was $30.59/Bbl, compared to $25.36/Bbl in the second quarter. The Company continues to benefit from strong basis pricing in the Eagle Ford. Crude oil and natural gas realizations in the third quarter were 103% and 102% of WTI and Henry Hub, respectively, excluding hedging.
FINANCIAL RESULTS
The Company reported total oil and gas revenues of $65.0 million, up 27% over the second quarter. On a GAAP basis, the Company reported net income of $7.1 million for the third quarter, which includes an unrealized loss on the value of the Company's hedge portfolio of $13.6 million.



 

The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $44.5 million, up 42% over the second quarter. 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 third quarter totaled approximately $97 million.
GUIDANCE UPDATE
For the fourth quarter, the Company is guiding for production of 203-233 MMcfe/d. The Company is increasing its fourth quarter oil and NGL production guidance to 1,780-2,060 Bbls/d and 3,400-3,920 Bbls/d, respectively. For the full year, the Company is narrowing its production guidance to 179-187 MMcfe/d. Additional detail concerning the Company's fourth quarter 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.
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 price increases. As of September 30, 2018, the Company has approximately 70% of total production volumes hedged for the remainder of 2018, using the mid-point of production guidance. The Company continues to layer on additional hedges when prices are favorable, including both oil and gas basis. Please see the Company's Form 10-Q filing, which the Company expects to file on Wednesday, November 7, 2018, for a detailed summary of derivative contracts.
CAPEX UPDATE
Given drilling cycle-time compression, the testing of high intensity completion designs, and the drilling of higher working interest wells, the Company increased its 2018 capital expenditure budget from a range of $245-$265 million to a range of $290-$310 million. The Company maintains considerable flexibility to modify its drilling program based on well results, commodity prices and other strategic opportunities.
CAPITAL STRUCTURE AND LIQUIDITY
The Company's liquidity as of September 30, 2018, was $210.5 million, primarily consisting of $4.5 million of cash and $206 million of availability under the Company’s credit facility. The Company recently completed its semi-annual redetermination, and the borrowing base under the credit facility was increased from $330 million to $410 million. With the upsized borrowing base, the Company's liquidity is $80 million higher than at the end of the third quarter. Additionally, the applicable margins



 

used to calculate the interest rate on the facility were reduced 25 basis points. As of November 1, 2018, the Company had 11.7 million total common shares outstanding.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Reconciliation of Net Income (GAAP) to Adjusted EBITDA (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.
