  • Realized $153 million in proceeds through the divestiture of non-core Eagle Ford and Midland producing assets and water infrastructure assets

2022 Capital Plan Highlights

  • Operational capital budget of $725 million, with approximately 85% allocated to the Permian Basin
  • Annual production guidance of 101 - 105 MBoe/d (64% oil)
  • Transition to more efficient, larger scale development on recently acquired southern Delaware properties with an expanded drilled and uncompleted well inventory and execute on identified opportunities to reduce lifting costs by 30%
  • Maintenance capital spending program driving stable production profile relative to 2021 after adjusting for acquisitions and divestitures
  • Expected adjusted free cash flow generation of greater than $500 million and an estimated reinvestment rate1 of less than 60% at $75/Bbl oil (WTI benchmark)

Joe Gatto, President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "During the fourth quarter and throughout the year, our team has outperformed expectations and set new records, all the while dealing with pandemic-related workplace challenges and a dynamic industry environment. Our operations team once again delivered solid results with production for the fourth quarter and the full year coming in at the high end of guidance while delivering our program under budget for the year.  

"In 2021, Callon successfully completed a large acquisition that was both accretive and deleveraging. We followed through on our monetization targets for the year, announcing approximately $210 million in gross proceeds from non-core asset sales. Financially, we set several new records, generating record net income of $365.2 million and annual adjusted EBITDA of $999 million which represents an increase of over 40% relative to last year. Our capital discipline and high margins enabled us to deliver $274 million in adjusted free cash flow, a new company record. These outstanding achievements allowed us to dramatically improve the balance sheet and reduce Callon's leverage ratio by over 2x during the year. We look forward to raising the bar even further in 2022. 

"Our 2022 capital budget reflects both our continued commitment to capital discipline and a greater focus on Callon's high rate of return Permian Basin assets. Inclusive of capitalized expenses, our capital budget implies a reinvestment rate1 of approximately 60% of adjusted discretionary cash flow at $75 per barrel WTI price and an adjusted free cash flow breakeven price of approximately $40 per barrel. We are in the process of implementing our operating model on the recently acquired Delaware assets and are actively taking measures to improve both production efficiency and operating cost structure. After completing our work to transition the acquired assets to larger project developments in the first quarter, we expect to generate oil production growth in excess of 10% over the course of the year. 

"The industry continues to face inflationary cost pressures in items like steel tubulars and fuel, as well as overall labor and service costs. These inflationary pressures have increased estimated spot market well costs by over 15% based on recent data points. Given our scaled program of steady development activity and longer-term agreements with service providers, we expect to benefit from a wide range of efficiencies and limit the anticipated inflationary impact on our well costs to approximately 10%. 

"Based on our planned operational activity and leading operating margins, we expect to generate over $500 million in adjusted free cash flow in 2022, based on $75 per barrel. This level of free cash flow puts us on a path to further reduce our absolute debt levels and achieve a leverage ratio of less than 1.5x by year end 2022," concluded Mr. Gatto.   

Environmental, Social, and Governance ("ESG") Updates

Callon advanced its sustainability initiatives during 2021 with the Company achieving numerous milestones as detailed below:

  • Issued its second sustainability report, aligned with SASB and TCFD frameworks
  • Completed the second series of field electrification projects in the Eagle Ford and Delaware Basin
  • Improved its carbon footprint through flaring reduction initiatives
  • Reduced its spill occurrences and total fluid spill rate
  • Invested in employee development and wellness with the initiation of the Employee Development Program and Employee Wellness Program
  • Expanded community engagement through employee volunteering and financial support of education, social, and environmental initiatives

The Company remains committed to continued GHG emission reductions. As a result of these achievements, Callon made significant progress in environmental performance in 2021 and is announcing the adoption of more aggressive reduction goals:

  • End routine flaring by end of 2022, an acceleration of three years versus the previous goal
  • 50% reduction in GHG intensity by 2024, targeting the high end of previous guidance and accelerating the achievement timeline by one year
  • Reduce all flaring to less than 1% by 2024
  • Reduce methane emissions to less than 0.2% by 2024

To advance these goals, Callon will be investing nearly $20 million in emission reduction projects this year as part of a broader multi-year emission reduction program.  This capital allocation will help expand the field electrification and other system upgrades that will allow Callon to continue to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and overall carbon footprint.

Operations Update and Outlook

At December 31, 2021, Callon had 1,326 gross (1,187.1 net) horizontal wells producing from established flow units in the Permian and Eagle Ford. Net daily production for the three months ended December 31, 2021 grew 18% to 112.4 MBoe/d (64% oil) as compared to the same period of 2020. Full year production for 2021 averaged 95.6 MBoe/d (64% oil), a decrease of 6% over 2020 volumes.

For the three months ended December 31, 2021, Callon drilled 27 gross (24.9 net) horizontal wells and placed a combined 19 gross (16.8 net) horizontal wells on production. Wells placed on production during the quarter were completed in the Lower Spraberry and Wolfcamp A in the Midland Basin and the 3rd Bone Spring, Wolfcamp A and Wolfcamp C in the Delaware Basin.

Currently, the Company has seven active rigs with four in the Delaware Basin, one in the Eagle Ford, and two in the Midland Basin.  Callon plans to release one of the Delaware rigs in late April. The Company is operating two completion crews with operations currently in the Delaware Basin. 

2022 Capital Expenditures Budget

Callon has established an operational capital expenditure budget of $725 million for 2022 with approximately 83% of spending directed towards drilling, completion and equipment expenditures. The increase of approximately $216 million from 2021 levels reflects an increase in the number of drilled wells and the impact of cost inflation on items such as fuel, steel and labor. The Company's 2022 development capital will be primarily focused on the Permian Basin, representing approximately 85% of the total budget.

The Permian development plan is characterized by large multi-bench project developments as the Company employs the life of field development philosophy. Permian development activity will predominantly feature co-development of the Wolfcamp A and B in the Delaware Basin and the Lower Spraberry and Wolfcamp A and B in the Midland Basin. The Eagle Ford program remains focused on the well-established target zone, the Lower Eagle Ford Shale, with the Company also planning to test the Austin Chalk in the second half of the year. In total, Callon expects to drill 125 to 130 gross wells and complete 113 to 118 gross wells.

The 2022 capital plan will leverage the structural savings and operational efficiencies that result from an integrated supply chain management focus and extensive experience operating in the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford. In particular, the Company believes that overlaying its development model on the newly acquired Delaware acreage will yield significant improvements in capital efficiency and operating cost structure. A repeatable program of moderated development activity, combined with service agreements to manage capital costs and strong operating cash margins, are expected to provide a foundation of durable free cash flow in 2022 and beyond.

The remainder of Callon's full year 2022 outlook is provided later in this release under the section titled "2022 Guidance."

Capital Expenditures

For the year ended December 31, 2021, Callon incurred $508.6 million in operational capital expenditures on an accrual basis as compared to $488.6 million in 2020. For the three months ended December 31, 2021, the Company incurred $159.8 million in operational capital expenditures on an accrual basis, which represented a $44.8 million increase from the third quarter of 2021. Total capital expenditures, inclusive of capitalized expenses, are detailed below on an accrual and cash basis:

Revenue. For the quarter ended December 31, 2021, Callon reported total revenue of $632.9 million, which excluded revenue from sales of commodities purchased from a third-party of $59.3 million. Total revenue increased $129.0 million during the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to the third quarter of 2021 primarily as a result of an 11% increase in the price of oil as well as a 13% increase in production. Revenues including the gain or loss from the settlement of derivative contracts ("Adjusted Total Revenue"1) were $483.0 million, reflecting the impact of a $149.9 million loss from the settlement of derivative contracts. Average daily production for the quarter was 112.4 MBoe/d compared to average daily production of 99.7 MBoe/d in the third quarter of 2021. Average realized prices, including and excluding the effects of hedging, are detailed above.

Commodity Derivatives. For the quarter ended December 31, 2021, the net (gain) loss on commodity derivative contracts includes the following (in thousands):

Lease Operating Expenses, including workover ("LOE"). LOE per Boe for the three months ended December 31, 2021 was $7.11 per Boe, compared to $4.66 per Boe in the third quarter of 2021. The increase in LOE per Boe is primarily attributable to the addition of the recently acquired Delaware production as well as overall cost inflation in materials and labor. 

Production and Ad Valorem Taxes. Production and ad valorem taxes were $3.26 per Boe for the three months ended December 31, 2021, representing approximately 5.3% of revenue excluding revenue from sales of commodities purchased from a third-party and before the impact of derivative settlements.

Gathering, Transportation and Processing. Gathering, transportation and processing for the three months ended December 31, 2021 were $22.1 million, or $2.14 per Boe, as compared to $20.9 million, or $2.28 per Boe in the third quarter of 2021. The decrease in gathering, transportation and processing per Boe was primarily attributable to the addition of the recently acquired Delaware production which carried lower gathering, transportation and processing fees.

Depreciation, Depletion and Amortization ("DD&A"). DD&A for the three months ended December 31, 2021 was $10.89 per Boe compared to $9.80 per Boe in the third quarter of 2021. The increase in DD&A per Boe was primarily attributable to a larger percentage increase in production as compared to the depletion rate of our proved reserves from the third quarter of 2021 to the fourth quarter of 2021.

General and Administrative Expense ("G&A"). G&A for the three months ended December 31, 2021 and September 30, 2021 was $13.1 million and $9.5 million, respectively. G&A, excluding certain non-cash incentive share-based compensation valuation adjustments, ("Adjusted G&A1" ) was $13.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 compared to $12.0 million for the third quarter of 2021. The cash component of Adjusted G&A of $12.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 increased as compared to $10.4 million for the third quarter of 2021 primarily as a result of increased compensation costs during the fourth quarter.

Income Tax. Callon provides for income taxes at a federal statutory rate of 21% adjusted for permanent differences expected to be realized. The Company recorded income tax benefit of $0.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021, compared to $2.4 million income tax expense for the three months ended September 30, 2021. Since the second quarter of 2020, we have concluded that it is more likely than not that the net deferred tax assets will not be realized and have recorded a full valuation allowance against our deferred tax assets. As long as we continue to conclude that the valuation allowance is necessary, we will not have significant deferred tax expense or benefit.

Adjusted EBITDA. Net income was $285.4 million and adjusted EBITDA was $339.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to net income of $171.9 million and adjusted EBITDA of $292.2 million for the third quarter of 2021. The increases in net income and adjusted EBITDA from the third quarter of 2021 were primarily due to incorporating the assets recently acquired in the southern Delaware as well as an increase in the price of oil partially offset by higher payments on derivative settlements.

Proved Reserves

DeGolyer and MacNaughton prepared the estimates of Callon's proved reserves as of December 31, 2021. As of December 31, 2021, Callon's estimated net proved reserves were 484.6 MMBoe and included 290.3 MMBbls of oil, 577.3 Bcf of natural gas, and 98.1 MMBbls of NGLs with a standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows of $6.3 billion using average realized prices for sales of oil, natural gas, and NGLs on the first calendar day of each month during the year of $65.44/Bbl for oil, $3.31/Mcf for natural gas, and $29.19/Bbl for NGLs.

Oil constituted approximately 60% of the Company's estimated equivalent proved developed reserves as well as the Company's estimated equivalent total proved reserves. The Company added 36.2 MMBoe of new reserves in extensions and discoveries through development efforts in 2021, with a total of 68 gross (61.3 net) wells drilled and 112 gross (103.8 net) wells completed.

The changes in Callon's estimated net proved reserves are as follows:

For the first quarter, the Company expects to produce between 100 and 102 Boe/d (63% oil) with between 16 and 18 gross wells placed on production.  In addition, Callon projects an operational capital spending level of between $175 and $185 million on an accrual basis. 

Adjusted Income and Adjusted EBITDA. The Company reported net income of $285.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021, or $4.78 per diluted share, and adjusted income of $159.2 million, or $2.66 per diluted share.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release refers to non-GAAP financial measures such as  "adjusted free cash flow," "adjusted discretionary cash flow," "adjusted G&A," "full cash G&A," "adjusted income," "adjusted income per diluted share," "adjusted EBITDA," "adjusted total revenue," and "PV-10."  These measures, detailed below, are provided in addition to, and not as an alternative for, and should be read in conjunction with, the information contained in our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP (including the notes), included in our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and posted on our website.

  • Adjusted free cash flow is a supplemental non-GAAP measure that is defined by the Company as adjusted EBITDA less operational capital, cash capitalized interest, net cash interest expense and capitalized cash G&A (which excludes capitalized expense related to share-based awards). We believe adjusted free cash flow provides useful information to investors because it is a comparable metric against other companies in the industry and is a widely accepted financial indicator of an oil and natural gas company's ability to generate cash for the use of internally funding their capital development program and to service or incur debt. Adjusted free cash flow is not a measure of a company's financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities, or as a measure of liquidity, or as an alternative to net income (loss).
  • Adjusted discretionary cash flow is a supplemental non-GAAP measure that Callon believes provides useful information to investors because it is a comparable metric against other companies in the industry and is a widely accepted financial indicator of an oil and natural gas company's ability to generate cash for the use of internally funding their capital development program and to service or incur debt. Adjusted discretionary cash flow is defined by Callon as net cash provided by operating activities before changes in working capital and merger, integration and transaction expenses. Callon has included this information because changes in operating assets and liabilities relate to the timing of cash receipts and disbursements, which the Company may not control and the cash flow effect may not be reflected the period in which the operating activities occurred. Adjusted discretionary cash flow is not a measure of a company's financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities, or as a measure of liquidity, or as an alternative to net income (loss).
  • Adjusted G&A is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that excludes certain non-cash incentive share-based compensation valuation adjustments and non-recurring expenses. Callon believes that the non-GAAP measure of adjusted G&A is useful to investors because it provides a meaningful measure of our recurring G&A expense and provides for greater comparability period-over-period.
  • Full cash G&A is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that Callon defines as adjusted G&A – cash component plus capitalized G&A excluding capitalized expense related to share-based awards. Callon believes that the non-GAAP measure of full cash G&A is useful to investors because it provides a meaningful measure of our total recurring cash G&A costs, whether expensed or capitalized, and provides for greater comparability on a period-over-period basis.
  • Adjusted income and adjusted income per diluted share are supplemental non-GAAP measures that Callon believes are useful to investors because they provide readers with a meaningful measure of our profitability before recording certain items whose timing or amount cannot be reasonably determined. These measures exclude the net of tax effects of these items and non-cash valuation adjustments, which are detailed in the reconciliation provided. Adjusted income and adjusted income per diluted share are not measures of financial performance under GAAP. Accordingly, neither should be considered as a substitute for net income (loss), operating income (loss), or other income data prepared in accordance with GAAP. However, the Company believes that adjusted income and adjusted income per diluted share provide additional information with respect to our performance. Because adjusted income and adjusted income per diluted share exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income (loss) and may vary among companies, the adjusted income and adjusted income per diluted share presented above may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
  • Adjusted diluted weighted average common shares outstanding ("Adjusted Diluted WASO") is a non-GAAP financial measure which includes the effect of potentially dilutive instruments that, under certain circumstances described below, are excluded from diluted weighted average common shares outstanding ("Diluted WASO"), the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. When a net loss exists, all potentially dilutive instruments are anti-dilutive to the net loss per common share and therefore excluded from the computation of Diluted WASO. The effect of potentially dilutive instruments are included in the computation of Adjusted Diluted WASO for purposes of computing adjusted income per diluted share.
  • Callon calculates adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation, depletion and amortization, (gains) losses on derivative instruments excluding net settled derivative instruments, impairment of evaluated oil and gas properties, non-cash share-based compensation expense, merger, integration and transaction expense, (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt, and other operating expenses. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Accordingly, it should not be considered as a substitute for net income (loss), operating income (loss), cash flow provided by operating activities or other income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. However, the Company believes that adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because it provides additional information with respect to our performance or ability to meet our future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements. Because adjusted EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income (loss) and may vary among companies, the adjusted EBITDA presented above may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
  • Callon believes that the non-GAAP measure of adjusted total revenue (which is revenue including the gain or loss from the settlement of derivative contracts) is useful to investors because it provides readers with a revenue value more comparable to other companies who engage in price risk management activities through the use of commodity derivative instruments and reflects the results of derivative settlements with expected cash flow impacts within total revenues. See the reconciliation provided above for further details.
  • Callon believes that operating margin is a comparable metric against other companies in the industry and is an indicator of an oil and natural gas company's operating profitability per unit of production. Operating margin is a supplemental non-GAAP measure that is defined by the Company as oil, natural gas, and NGL revenues sales price less lease operating expense; production and ad valorem taxes; and gathering, transportation and processing fees divided by total production for the period.
  • Net debt is a supplemental non-GAAP measure that is defined by the Company as total debt excluding unamortized premiums, discount, and deferred loan costs, less cash and cash equivalents. Net debt should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, total debt, the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Management uses net debt to determine the Company's outstanding debt obligations that would not be readily satisfied by its cash and cash equivalents on hand. We believe this metric is useful to analysts and investors in determining the Company's leverage position since the Company has the ability to, and may decide to, use a portion of its cash and cash equivalents to reduce debt. This metric is sometimes presented as a ratio with Adjusted EBITDA in order to provide investors with another means of evaluating the Company's ability to service its existing debt obligations as well as any future increase in the amount of such obligations.
  • Callon believes that the presentation of pre-tax PV-10 value is relevant and useful to its investors because it presents the discounted future net cash flows attributable to reserves prior to taking into account future corporate income taxes and the Company's current tax structure. The Company further believes investors and creditors use pre-tax PV-10 values as a basis for comparison of the relative size and value of its reserves as compared with other companies. The GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to pre-tax PV-10 is the standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows. Pre-tax PV-10 is calculated using the standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows before deducting future income taxes, discounted at 10 percent.
  • Callon is unable to reconcile the projected adjusted free cash flow (non-GAAP) metric included in this release to projected net cash provided by operating activities (GAAP) because components of the calculation are inherently unpredictable, such as changes to current assets and liabilities, the timing of capital expenditures, movements in oil and gas pricing, unknown future events, and estimating future certain GAAP measures. The inability to project certain components of the calculation would significantly affect the accuracy of the reconciliation. Additionally, Callon does not provide guidance on the items used to reconcile forecasted Adjusted G&A and forecasted G&A due to the uncertainty regarding timing and estimates of certain items. Therefore, Callon cannot reconcile forecasted Adjusted G&A to forecasted G&A without unreasonable effort.
