NEWS RELEASE

SOUTHWESTERN ENERGY ANNOUNCES FIRST QUARTER 2020 RESULTS
Pivoting investment to high-rate natural gas producing inventory, enabled by asset
flexibility and operational agility

SPRING, Texas – April 30, 2020...Southwestern Energy Company (NYSE: SWN) today announced financial and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Completed semi-annual borrowing base redetermination and revolving credit facility commitment at $1.8 billion with no other changes in terms;
Repurchased $80 million in senior notes at an average 36% discount;
Received weighted average realized price (excluding transportation) of $2.56 per Mcfe, including $93 million settled hedging gains, a $0.47 per Mcfe benefit;
Reported total production of 201 Bcfe, including 1.7 Bcf per day of gas and 83 MBbls per day of liquids;
Reduced cost structure by a total of $60 million in 2020 across all expense categories, with additional savings measures in progress;
Responding to current commodity price and COVID-19 demand impact:
Second quarter total production expected to be largely unaffected, with a higher percentage of production from natural gas due to improved well performance and ethane rejection; minimal condensate curtailments expected
Full year capital investment currently expected to be $860 million, use of earmarked proceeds will not exceed $300 million.

“Again this quarter, the Company delivered operational and financial performance that exceeded expectations. These results, combined with ample liquidity, a long debt maturity runway, rigorous capital discipline and proactive risk management, demonstrate a strong foundation to navigate today’s ever-changing environment. Given the Company’s operational agility and portfolio flexibility, we have shifted capital investment to high-rate, high-value natural gas as fundamentals indicate support for higher prices going forward,” said Bill Way, Southwestern Energy President and Chief Executive Officer.

“Clearly, current market conditions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic can affect some of our operating and financial metrics. In response we are reducing capital, and we continue to find ways to mitigate the impacts. Throughout, we remain committed to protecting our balance sheet, returning to free cash flow and maximizing shareholder value,” continued Way.

Financial Results
For the quarter ended March 31, 2020, Southwestern Energy recorded a net loss of $1.5 billion, or $2.86 per diluted share, which includes a $1.48 billion non-cash full cost ceiling test impairment, $408 million related to tax valuation allowance, a $246 million gain from unsettled derivatives and other one-time items. This compares to net income of $594 million, or $1.10 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2019. Adjusted net income,



which excludes the items noted above, was $56 million or $0.10 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $145 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, for the prior year period. The decrease was primarily related to lower commodity prices compared to 2019, partially offset by a $93 million gain in settled derivatives in 2020 compared to a $10 million loss in 2019. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was $206 million, net cash provided by operating activities was $160 million and net cash flow (non-GAAP) was $191 million.

As indicated in the table below, first quarter 2020 weighted average realized price (including transportation) was $1.69 per Mcfe excluding the impact of derivatives. Including derivatives, weighted average realized price (including transportation) for the quarter was down 26% from $2.92 per Mcfe in 2019 to $2.16 per Mcfe in 2020, as settled derivative gains did not fully offset the 38% decrease in NYMEX Henry Hub.

During the first quarter, $93 million was realized from cash-settled hedging gains. At quarter end, the Company had hedges for 87% of its remaining natural gas production, 57% of its natural gas liquids (NGLs) production and approximately 100% of its oil production, all at prices well above current strip pricing for the remainder of 2020. As of March 31, 2020, the fair value of the hedge portfolio for the remainder of 2020 was $353 million. The Company’s three-year rolling hedging program spans across a range of commodities including, natural gas, oil, ethane, propane and basis.

At quarter-end, the Company had total debt of $2.3 billion and a cash balance of $5 million, with a leverage ratio of 2.7x. During the first quarter of 2020, $80 million of senior notes were repurchased at a discount of 36%, with $2.15 billion of senior notes outstanding, including $210 million due before 2025.

As of March 31, 2020, Southwestern Energy had $149 million in revolver borrowings and $172 million in letters of credit. Subsequent to quarter end, the Company’s borrowing base related to the revolving credit facility was set at $1.8 billion following a scheduled semi-annual redetermination. On a pro forma basis, the Company has approximately $1.3 billion in liquidity available under its revolving credit facility after adjusting for quarter-end borrowings and an additional $150 million in letters of credit issued subsequent to quarter-end.

Southwest Appalachia – In the first quarter, total production was 87 Bcfe, approximately half of which was liquids. The Company drilled 23 wells, completed 12 wells and placed seven wells to sales, four in the rich acreage and three in the super rich, with an average lateral length of 13,444 feet. The 3 super rich wells were online for at least 30 days and had an average 30-day rate of 11 MMcfe per day, including 68% liquids.

Part of the shift to high-rate natural gas producing wells will include increased development in the Company’s rich acreage in West Virginia. A four-well pad placed to sales in the rich acreage mid-March exceeded expectations, with a combined peak production rate of approximately 170 MMcfe per day, a new Company record and a 20% improvement over the previous record. This represents a continuation of the performance improvement the Company has have seen in this area utilizing latest generation completion designs. A typical well in the rich acreage produces approximately 60% natural gas and 40% liquids, with a small contribution from condensate.

Northeast Appalachia – First quarter 2020 production was 114 Bcf. There were 15 wells drilled, 10 wells completed and five wells put to sales with an average lateral length of 8,874 feet. Four of the five wells were online for at least 30 days and had an average 30-day rate of 24 MMcf per day, a 60% increase compared to prior year quarter. This outperformance was driven by lateral length, completion design enhancement and well mix.

Explanation and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). However, management believes certain non-GAAP performance measures may provide financial statement users with additional meaningful comparisons between current results, the results of its peers and of prior periods.

One such non-GAAP financial measure is net cash flow. Management presents this measure because (i) it is accepted as an indicator of an oil and gas exploration and production company’s ability to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service or incur additional debt, (ii) changes in operating assets and liabilities relate to the timing of cash receipts and disbursements which the Company may not control and (iii) changes in operating assets and liabilities may not relate to the period in which the operating activities occurred.

Additional non-GAAP financial measures the Company may present from time to time are net debt, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA, all which exclude certain charges or amounts. Management presents these measures because (i) they are consistent with the manner in which the Company’s position and performance are measured relative to the position and performance of its peers, (ii) these measures are more comparable to earnings estimates provided by securities analysts, and (iii) charges or amounts excluded cannot be reasonably estimated and guidance provided by the Company excludes information regarding these types of items. These adjusted amounts are not a measure of financial performance under GAAP.
