Kimbell Royalty Partners Files Form 10-Q, Announces Final First Quarter 2017 Financial and Operating Results and Provides Update on Potential Full-Cost Ceiling Test Impairment

May 12, 2017 - (Newswire)

-

Kimbell Royalty Partners, LP (NYSE: KRP), a leading owner of oil and natural gas mineral and royalty interests across 20 states, today announced the filing of its Form 10-Q for the first quarter 2017, final financial and operational results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017 and an update on the potential full-cost ceiling test impairment.

The following results reflect the period from the date of closing of our initial public offering on February 8, 2017 through March 31, 2017:

  • Revenue of $4.6 million
  • Net income of $283,000
  • Earnings per common unit of $0.02
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $2.9 million
  • Production of 59,511 barrels of oil, 489,671 Mcf of natural gas and 20,930 barrels of natural gas liquids - for total combined volumes of 162,053 barrels of oil equivalent (BOE)
  • On May 2, 2017, declared an initial distribution of $0.23 per common unit
  • Received an exemption from the SEC relating to a potential full cost ceiling test impairment as further described below

The final operational results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 reflect the accrual of revenue from the closing of the initial public offering ("IPO") on February 8, 2017 rather than the effective date of the acquisition of oil and natural gas properties on February 1, 2017 as shown on the earnings release dated May 8, 2017. Under the terms of the contribution agreement entered into by and among the Partnership and the Contributing Parties prior to the IPO, the MLP is entitled to receive royalty payments with respect to the acquired properties from and after February 1, 2017. However, for GAAP purposes, the final operational results reflect a revenue accrual from the closing of the IPO on February 8, 2017. This revision does not change the amount of cash received from the partnership's properties during the quarter, nor the partnership's previously announced cash distribution for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.

Financial Highlights

In the first quarter, the partnership had revenues of $4.6 million, net income of $283,000 and earnings per common unit of $0.02. Averaged realized price for oil per Bbl was $47.35, natural gas per Mcf was $2.55 and natural gas liquids was $23.35 per Bbl. Adjusted EBITDA was $2.9 million. (Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure. Please see a reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measures at the end of this news release.)

Production

The partnership reported total first quarter production for the period from February 8, 2017 through March 31, 2017 of 162,053 BOE, or 3,116 BOE per day. On a revenue basis, 62% was oil, 11% was natural gas liquids and 27% was natural gas. On a production basis, approximately 37% was oil, 13% was natural gas liquids and 50% was natural gas.

Update to Potential Full-Cost Ceiling Limitation Impairment

The oil and natural gas properties that were acquired in connection with the IPO were recorded at the acquisition price of those assets at the time of the IPO. As previously disclosed in our filings with the SEC, as a result of the significant difference between the acquisition price at the time of the IPO and the full-cost ceiling limitation, we could have been required to record a significant impairment to our oil and natural gas properties in the quarter ending March 31, 2017. However, we requested and received an exemption from the SEC to exclude the recently acquired properties from the ceiling test calculation. The Partnership will continue to assess the fair value of the acquired assets at each periodic reporting date to ensure inclusion in the ceiling calculation is not required through the December 31, 2017 reporting period, the period of the exemption provided by the SEC.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Adjusted EBITDA is used as a supplemental non-GAAP (as defined below) financial measure by management and external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful because it allows us to more effectively evaluate our operating performance and compare the results of our operations period to period without regard to our financing methods or capital structure. In addition, management uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate cash flow available to pay distributions to our unitholders.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus interest expense, net of capitalized interest, non‑cash unit‑based compensation, impairment of oil and natural gas properties, income taxes and depreciation, depletion and accretion expense. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of the income (loss) as determined by the generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP" or "U.S. GAAP"). We exclude the items listed above from net income (loss) in arriving at Adjusted EBITDA because these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a company's financial performance, such as a company's cost of capital and tax structure, as well as historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are components of Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income, oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids revenues, net cash flows provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Our computations of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

The following tables present a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income and net cash provided by operating activities, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, for the periods indicated (unaudited):
