Eric Greager, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bonanza Creek, commented, "2019 marks another year of healthy momentum for our company. Our returns-focused program generated $204 million in EBITDAX and 48% production growth on capex of $222 million. Well performance continues to improve, demonstrating the quality of our assets and our team's technical and operating capabilities."

Greager added, "We expanded our margin in 2019 despite realized prices that were 16% lower than the prior year. Unit LOE of $2.95 per Boe was below the low-end of our original 2019 guidance. Cash G&A on a recurring basis of $3.74 per Boe for the year was just above the low-end of our guidance, and trended down throughout the year to a fourth quarter rate of $3.41 per Boe. We will continue to aggressively apply technology to drive capital and operating efficiencies across the full life-cycle of our assets. Last month we provided guidance for 2020, and we look forward to delivering 17% production growth on capex that is essentially flat to 2019. We continue to work closely with our development partner in French Lake to target the start of drilling in Q4 2020.”

(1) Results for three and twelve months ended are for Wattenberg only. The Company's Mid-Continent region assets were sold on August 6, 2018.

Capital expenditures were $49.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 and $222.2 million for the full year 2019, which was below the Company's original annual capital expenditure guidance range of $230 to $255 million, and its most recent guidance of $230 to $240 million. During the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company drilled 13 gross (12.3 net) operated wells and completed 8 gross (4.8 net) operated wells. There were no wells turned to sales during the fourth quarter. For the year, the Company drilled 59 gross (46.0 net), completed 40 gross (33.7 net), and turned to sales 45 gross (35.1 net) operated wells.

Net oil and gas revenue for the fourth quarter of 2019 increased to $79.7 million compared to $75.2 million for the third quarter of 2019. The increase was a result of higher oil, natural gas, and NGL realized prices. Crude oil accounted for approximately 83% of total revenue for the quarter. Differentials for the Company's oil production averaged approximately $4.93 per barrel and $5.28 per barrel off NYMEX WTI for the fourth quarter and full-year, respectively.

Lease operating expenses ("LOE") for the fourth quarter of 2019 on a unit basis remained relatively flat at $3.01 per Boe, compared to $3.00 per Boe in the third quarter of 2019. Full-year 2019 LOE of $2.95 per Boe was below the Company's original guidance range of $3.00 to $3.50 per Boe, and at the mid-point of the Company's revised guidance range of $2.75 to $3.10 per Boe.

RMI operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2019 were $1.66 per Boe, compared to $1.46 per Boe in third quarter of 2019. The increase relates to a full quarter of planned expenses for the Company's new oil gathering pipeline system, which began delivering oil and improved price realizations during the third quarter of 2019. Full year 2019 RMI operating expenses of $1.40 per Boe were in line with the Company's expectations and full-year guidance of $1.10 to $1.40 per Boe. The RMI oil pipeline system significantly reduces the Company’s use of truck hauling services, reducing truck traffic, emissions, and weather risk while lowering crude oil differentials and improving realized oil pricing. The system also increases RMI revenue from fees charged to working interest partners.

The Company's general and administrative ("G&A") expenses were $9.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, which included $1.7 million in non-cash stock-based compensation and $0.4 million related to one-time cash severance costs. Recurring cash G&A, which excludes stock-based compensation and cash severance, of $7.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 was comparable to $7.9 million in the third quarter of 2019. On a per unit basis, the Company's recurring cash G&A decreased 3% sequentially from $3.53 per Boe in the third quarter of 2019 to $3.41 per Boe in the fourth quarter of 2019. For the full year 2019, recurring cash G&A of $3.74 per Boe was in line with the Company's expectations and full-year guidance of $3.70 to $3.95 per Boe.

Recurring cash G&A is a non-GAAP measure. Please see Schedule 7 at the end of this release for a reconciliation from recurring cash G&A to GAAP G&A.

2019 Proved Reserves, Costs Incurred, and Finding and Development Costs

As of year-end 2019, the Company had proved reserves of 121.9 MMBoe, a 4% increase from year-end 2018 reserves. The Company's year-end 2019 proved reserves were comprised of 64.4 MMbbls of oil, 22.2 MMbbls of NGLs, and 212.2 Bcf of natural gas, and 45% were proved-developed-producing. At year-end, the Company’s proved reserves PV-10 utilizing Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") pricing was $858.1 million. Bonanza Creek’s independent reserve engineering firm, Netherland, Sewell & Associates, Inc., completed its estimate of the Company’s year-end 2019 proved reserves in accordance with SEC guidelines using pricing of $55.85 per barrel for crude oil and $2.58 per million British Thermal Units (MMBtu) for natural gas. Please see Schedule 6 at the end of this release for information on SEC pricing and a reconciliation of PV-10 to the GAAP figure “Standardized Measure of Oil and Gas.”

(2) Recurring cash general and administrative expense excludes stock based compensation and cash severance costs. Please see Schedule 7 for a reconciliation from recurring cash G&A to GAAP G&A.

Schedule 5: Adjusted EBITDAX
(in thousands, unaudited)

Adjusted EBITDAX is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management to provide a metric of the Company's ability to internally generate funds for exploration and development of oil and gas properties. The metric excludes items which are non-recurring in nature and/or items which are not reasonably estimable. Management believes adjusted EBITDAX provides external users of the Company’s consolidated financial statements such as industry analysts, investors, lenders, and rating agencies with additional information to assist in their analysis of the Company. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDAX as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, impairment, exploration expenses and other similar non-cash and non-recurring charges. Adjusted EBITDAX is not a measure of net income (loss) or cash flows as determined by GAAP.

The following table presents a reconciliation of the GAAP financial measure of net income to the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDAX.

Schedule 6: PV-10 of Estimated Proved Reserves

PV-10 is derived from the Standardized Measure, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. PV-10 is a computation of the Standardized Measure on a pre-tax basis. PV-10 is equal to the Standardized Measure at the applicable date, before deducting future income taxes, discounted at 10%. We believe that the presentation of PV-10 is relevant and useful to investors because it presents the discounted future net cash flows attributable to our estimated net proved reserves prior to taking into account future corporate income taxes, and it is a useful measure for evaluating the relative monetary significance of our oil and natural gas properties. Further, investors may utilize the measure as a basis for comparison of the relative size and value of our reserves to other companies. We use this measure when assessing the potential return on investment related to our oil and natural gas properties. PV-10, however, is not a substitute for the Standardized Measure. Our PV-10 measure and the Standardized Measure do not purport to present the fair value of our proved oil and natural gas reserves.

The following table presents a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measure of PV-10 to the GAAP Standardized Measure.

(in thousands)   12/31/2019
     
PV-10 (1)   $ 858,147   
Present value of future income taxes discounted at 10% (2)   —   
Standardized Measure   $ 858,147   
     
(1) The 12-month average benchmark pricing used to estimate SEC proved reserves and PV-10 value for crude oil and natural gas was $55.85 per Bbl of WTI crude oil and $2.58 per MMBtu of natural gas at Henry Hub before differential adjustments. After differential adjustments, the Company's SEC pricing realizations for year-end 2019 were $51.22 per Bbl of oil, $10.07 per Bbl of NGLs, and $1.44 per Mcf of natural gas.
(2) The tax basis of the Company's oil and gas properties as of December 31, 2019 provides more tax deduction than income generation when reserve estimates were prepared using 2019 SEC pricing.

Schedule 7: Recurring Cash G&A
(in thousands, unaudited)

Recurring cash G&A is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management to provide only the cash portion of its G&A expense, which can be used to evaluate cost management and operating efficiency on a comparable basis from period to period. Management believes recurring cash G&A provides external users of the Company’s consolidated financial statements such as industry analysts, investors, lenders, and rating agencies with additional information to assist in their analysis of the Company. The Company defines recurring cash G&A as GAAP general and administrative expense exclusive of the Company's stock based compensation and one-time charges. The Company refers to recurring cash G&A to provide typical recurring cash G&A costs that are planned for in a given period. Recurring cash G&A is not a fully inclusive measure of general and administrative expense as determined by GAAP.

The following table presents a reconciliation of the GAAP financial measure of general and administrative expense to the non-GAAP financial measure of recurring cash G&A.

    Three Months Ended   Twelve Months Ended
    12/31/2019   12/31/2018   12/31/2019   12/31/2018

Cash severance costs   (333 )     —        (751 )     (279 )  
Recurring cash G&A   $ 7,637        $ 9,879        $ 32,031        $ 35,018
