MANAGEMENT COMMENTS
Sean Woolverton, SilverBow’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our third quarter results demonstrate the resilience of our low-cost Eagle Ford asset base and our ability to generate returns in a challenging commodity price cycle. We continue to execute on our organic leasing campaign, and this quarter announced our newest acreage position in Dimmit County which significantly increases our oil location inventory. Our acreage additions this year in Webb and Dimmit counties highlight our returns-focused approach towards growth and our ability to sustain free cash flow, ultimately creating long-term shareholder value."
"Our preliminary 2020 capital budget represents a 30% reduction in projected spend year-over-year, and targets over 25% oil production growth and positive free cash flow. At the forefront of our strategy is the proactive management and protection of our balance sheet, borrowing base, and liquidity. At a one-rig pace, we will focus on returns while assessing opportunities to grow where valuations are attractive. As we work to finalize our formal 2020 budget, we have unique optionality as we focus on diversifying our commodity mix as well as maintaining our ability to respond quickly to the commodity price environment and pursue strategic expansions."
Mr. Woolverton commented further, "SilverBow is a premiere small-cap company in the E&P space, with an exclusive focus in the Eagle Ford. We are a returns-focused operator uniquely positioned to adjust capital allocation based on prevailing product prices. We have a low-cost structure and proximity to premium Gulf Coast markets. As such, we have consistently delivered industry leading margins and top-decile returns on capital employed.”
OPERATIONS HIGHLIGHTS
During the third quarter, the Company drilled six gross (five net) wells while completing five gross (five net) wells and bringing seven gross (seven net) wells online. Activity primarily focused on the McMullen Oil area where three net wells were completed. The Company continues to focus on capital efficiency and optimizing well designs. Year-to-date, the Company has realized a 24% improvement in lateral feet drilled per day over the full-year 2018 average, resulting in a decrease in average cost per lateral foot of 22% over the same time frame. On the completions side, the Company averaged over seven stages per day year to date, a 64%

2



increase over the full-year 2018 average, and lowered completion costs per well by 26% over the same time frame. Additionally, total proppant volumes pumped per day have averaged over 3.5 million lbs per day, a 54% increase compared to the full-year 2018 average.
The Company continues to see strong results in its McMullen Oil and La Salle Condensate assets. A two-well pad in the McMullen Oil area was brought online early in the third quarter, and produced a 30-day per well average of 1,200 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("Boe/d") (90% liquids). Both wells were completed utilizing over 3,000 pounds of proppant and 50 barrels of fluid per lateral foot. In the La Salle Condensate area, the Company completed one well, which was brought online in mid-August and produced a 30-day average of 1,209 Boe/d (73% liquids).
Through year-end, the Company is focused on its six-well pad in Webb County. The super-pad site will utilize dual frac crews, de-bundled sand logistics and other innovative techniques to maximize the efficiency of this large, complex operation. From acquisition of this position in June to expected first production by late fourth quarter, the Company expects to have assessed, prepared and delivered first production in just five months. The Company is targeting initial gross production from the pad between 75-100 MMcfe/d toward the latter part of the fourth quarter.
PRODUCTION VOLUMES, OPERATING COSTS AND REALIZED PRICES
The Company's total net production for the third quarter averaged approximately 239 MMcfe/d, which was at the high end of guidance. Production mix for the third quarter consisted of approximately 72% natural gas, 14% natural gas liquids ("NGLs"), and 14% oil. Liquids comprised 49% of total revenue for the third quarter, compared to 33% in the third quarter of 2018.
Lease operating expenses of $0.25/Mcfe for the third quarter were in-line with the Company’s guidance range. After deducting $1.8 million of non-cash compensation expense, cash general and administrative costs of $4.5 million for the third quarter compared favorably to guidance, with a per unit cash cost of $0.20/Mcfe. Transportation and processing expenses ("T&P") came in at $0.31/Mcfe and production and ad valorem taxes were 5.2% of oil and gas revenue for the third quarter. Both metrics were at or below the low end of the Company's guidance range. Total production expenses, which include LOE, T&P and production taxes, were $0.73/Mcfe for the quarter. The Company's all-in cash operating expenses for the quarter, which includes cash general and administrative costs, were $0.94/Mcfe.
Average realized prices for crude oil and natural gas were 101% and 104% of WTI and Henry Hub, respectively, excluding hedging. The Company’s average realized natural gas price, excluding the effect of hedging, was $2.32 per thousand cubic feet of natural gas ("Mcf") compared to $2.97/Mcf in the third quarter of 2018. The average realized crude oil selling price, excluding the effect

3



of hedging, was $57.14 per barrel of oil ("Bbl") compared to $71.68/Bbl in the third quarter of 2018. The average realized NGL selling price in the quarter was $11.99/Bbl, compared to $30.59/Bbl in the third quarter of 2018. Despite lower commodity prices, the Company realized strong growth in Adjusted EBITDA year-over-year, driven by an increase in production, effective cost control and greater percentage of revenue contribution from liquids.
FINANCIAL RESULTS
The Company reported total oil and gas revenue of $72.0 million for the second quarter, up 11% over the third quarter of 2018. On a GAAP basis, the Company reported net income of $27.7 million for the third quarter of 2019, which includes an unrealized gain on the value of the Company's hedge portfolio of $13.4 million and a $1.0 million net tax provision.
The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $62.9 million for the second quarter, up 41% over the third quarter of 2018. On a per unit basis, the Company's reported Adjusted EBITDA of $2.85/Mcfe for the third quarter came in 13% higher than the third quarter of 2018.
Capital expenditures incurred during the third quarter totaled approximately $49.5 million, which includes $4.9 million for leasing expenditures.
2019 GUIDANCE AND PRELIMINARY 2020 OUTLOOK
The Company tightened its full-year capital budget range to $255-$260 million and full-year production guidance range to 228-232 MMcfe/d. For the fourth quarter, the Company is guiding for average estimated production of 225-234 MMcfe/d, with the largest variable being the timing of initial production from the Company's six-well pad in Webb County.
While still finalizing the 2020 budget, the Company expects to increase oil production by over 25% year-over-year and generate free cash flow while reducing capital expenditures by approximately 30% to a preliminary range of $175-$195 million. Additional detail concerning the Company's fourth quarter and full-year 2019 financial and operational guidance can be found in the table included at the end of 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 the Company's strategy to protect cash flow. 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, 2019, the Company had 67% of total estimated production volumes hedged for the remainder of 2019, using the

4



midpoint of production guidance. For 2020, the Company has 86 million cubic feet of natural gas per day ("MMcf/d") hedged at an average price of $2.66/Mcf and 3,191 Bbls/d of oil hedged at an average price of $56.30/Bbl. Please see the Company's Form 10-Q filing for the third quarter of 2019, which the Company expects to file on Thursday, November 7, 2019, for a detailed summary of its derivative contracts.
CAPITAL STRUCTURE AND LIQUIDITY
The Company's liquidity as of September 30, 2019, was $130.9 million, primarily consisting of approximately $2.9 million of cash and $128.0 million of availability under the Company’s credit facility. Subsequent to quarter end, the borrowing base of the Company's credit facility was redetermined to be $400 million. As of November 1, 2019, the Company had 11.8 million total common shares outstanding.

SilverBow Resources, Inc.
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”) and Adjusted EBITDA Margin in addition to our reported net income (loss) in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP financial measures that are used as supplemental financial measures 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. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss):

Plus (Less):
Depreciation, depletion and amortization;
Accretion of asset retirement obligations;
Interest expense;
Impairment of oil and natural gas properties;
Net losses (gains) on commodity derivative contracts;
Amounts collected (paid) for commodity derivative contracts held to settlement;
Income tax expense (benefit); and
Share-based compensation expense

We define Adjusted EBITDA Margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by the the sum of oil and gas sales and derivative cash settlements collected or paid. Our Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin should not be considered alternatives 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 and Adjusted EBITDA Margin may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of another company because all companies may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin in the same manner.
