Financial report summary

?
Risks
  • An extended period of depressed oil and natural gas prices will adversely affect our business, financial condition, cash flow, liquidity, results of operations and our ability to meet our capital expenditure obligations and financial commitments.
  • Our debt service requirements could adversely affect our operations and limit our growth.
  • Our future production and revenues depend on our ability to replace our reserves.
  • Prospects that we decide to drill may not yield oil or natural gas in commercially viable quantities or quantities sufficient to meet our targeted rate of return and firm transportation commitments.
  • Our business involves many uncertainties and operating risks that can prevent us from realizing profits and can cause substantial losses.
  • We operate in a highly competitive industry, and our failure to remain competitive with our competitors, many of which have greater resources than we do, could adversely affect our results of operations.
  • If oil and natural gas prices decline further or continue to remain low for an extended period of time, we may be required to further write-down the carrying values and/or the estimates of total reserves of our oil and natural gas properties, which would constitute a non-cash charge to earnings and adversely affect our results of operations.
  • Our reserve estimates depend on many assumptions that may turn out to be inaccurate. Any material inaccuracies in our reserve estimates or underlying assumptions will materially affect the quantities and present value of our reserves.
  • Some of our undeveloped leasehold acreage is subject to leases that will expire unless production is established on units containing the acreage.
  • We pursue acquisitions as part of our growth strategy and there are risks associated with such acquisitions.
  • If we are unsuccessful at marketing our oil and natural gas at commercially acceptable prices, our profitability may decline.
  • We are subject to extensive governmental laws and regulations that may adversely affect the cost, manner or feasibility of doing business.
  • Federal and state legislation and regulatory initiatives relating to hydraulic fracturing could result in increased costs and additional operating restrictions or delays as well as restrict our access to our oil and gas reserves.
  • Issuance of our common stock in connection with the conversion of our outstanding convertible preferred stock would cause substantial dilution, which could materially affect the trading price of our common stock and earnings per share.
  • Our access to capital markets may be limited in the future.
  • Changes in taxation as well as the inherent difficulty in quantifying potential tax effects of business decisions could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial condition, or cash flows.
  • Loss of our information and computer systems could adversely affect our business.
  • Our business could be negatively impacted by security threats, including cyber-security threats and other disruptions.
  • We are exposed to the credit risk of our customers and counterparties, and our credit risk management may not be adequate to protect against such risk.
  • Substantial exploration and development activities could require significant outside capital, which could dilute the value of our common shares and restrict our activities. Also, we may not be able to obtain needed capital or financing on satisfactory terms, which could lead to a limitation of our future business opportunities and a decline in our oil and natural gas reserves.
  • We depend on our key personnel and the loss of any of these individuals could have a material adverse effect on our operations.
  • Our insurance coverage may not be sufficient or may not be available to cover some liabilities or losses that we may incur.
Management Discussion
  • ITEM 7.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
  • We are an independent energy company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development and production of oil and natural gas in the United States. Our assets are concentrated in the Haynesville and Bossier shale located in East Texas and North Louisiana, a premier natural gas basin with superior economics and geographic proximity to Gulf Coast markets. Approximately 93% of our December 31, 2019 proved reserves are located in the Haynesville and Bossier shale region. We own interests in 2,800 producing oil and natural gas wells (1,410.8 net to us) and we operate 1,430 of these wells. We intend to maintain an operating plan in 2020 targeting leverage reduction and generation of free cash flow.
  • Our growth is driven primarily by our acquisition, development and exploration activities. In 2019 our growth in natural gas production and proved reserves was primarily driven by the Covey Park Acquisition and our drilling activities. We plan to spend approximately $421.0 million in 2020 for our development and exploration activities, which will be focused primarily on Haynesville and Bossier shale projects.
