Rattler Midstream LP, a Subsidiary of Diamondback Energy, Inc., Reports Second Quarter 2021 Financial and Operating Results

MIDLAND, Texas, Aug. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rattler Midstream LP (NASDAQ: RTLR) (“Rattler” or the “Company”), a subsidiary of Diamondback Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: FANG) (“Diamondback”), today announced financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

SECOND QUARTER 2021 HIGHLIGHTS

  • Q2 2021 consolidated net income (including non-controlling interest) of $54.5 million
  • Q2 2021 consolidated Adjusted EBITDA (as defined and reconciled below) of $76.0 million
  • Q2 2021 cash flow provided by operating activities of $75.7 million; Q2 2021 Operating Cash Flow Before Working Capital Changes (as defined and reconciled below) of $62.8 million
  • Q2 2021 cash operated capital expenditures of $11.9 million; 2021 operated midstream capex guidance reduced to $30 - $50 million, a 43% decrease at the midpoint from previous guidance
  • Q2 2021 consolidated Free Cash Flow (as defined and reconciled below) of $81.0 million; Q2 2021 Recurring Free Cash Flow (as defined and reconciled below) of $51.0 million
  • Board of Directors of Rattler's general partner approved an increased cash distribution for the second quarter of 2021 of $0.25 per common unit ($1.00 annualized); implies a 9.8% annualized yield based on the August 3, 2021 closing unit price of $10.22
  • Repurchased approximately 0.5 million common units at an average unit price of $10.94 for a total cost of $5.2 million during the quarter
  • Q2 2021 average produced water gathering and disposal volumes of 802 MBbl/d
  • Q2 2021 average sourced water volumes of 242 MBbl/d; 20% of total sourced water volumes in Q2 2021 sourced from recycled produced water
  • Q2 2021 average crude oil gathering volumes of 84 MBbl/d
  • Q2 2021 average gas gathering volumes of 142 BBtu/d

“The second quarter of 2021 was another strong operational performance for Rattler as volumes and operations normalized after the impact of the first quarter's weather events. Both the operated business and our equity method joint ventures witnessed a return to trend in both volumes and earnings, and the Rattler team did a tremendous job in controlling costs during the quarter. Accordingly, due to our strong financial position and with improved confidence in our free cash flow trajectory, Rattler is increasing its distribution by 25% to $1.00 annualized per common unit,” stated Travis Stice, Chief Executive Officer of Rattler’s general partner.

Mr. Stice continued, "Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated retrenchment of Rattler's and Diamondback's operations to focus on cash flow over growth, we have tasked the Rattler organization with cutting operational expense and capital expenditures to increase cash flow in an environment in which growth in volumes and midstream capacity is not called for. The results of these efforts are apparent as Rattler has generated over $100 million in recurring free cash flow in the first half of 2021, not including divestitures of non-core real estate and the Amarillo Rattler stake, which have netted another $30 million. This free cash, even after unitholder distributions and the common unit repurchase program, has enabled Rattler to end the quarter with no net balance on its revolving credit facility. Altogether, the strong financial position with peer-leading low leverage gives Rattler flexibility, indispensable during these volatile times, in executing its mandate of creating value for its unitholders. Whether by increasing return of capital to unitholders through the distribution or its common unit repurchase program, or taking advantage of the opportunities afforded through our strategic relationship with Diamondback, we will continue to prudently allocate capital to achieve this goal.”

OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL UPDATE

During the second quarter of 2021, the Company recorded total operating income of $38.8 million, an increase of 3% compared to the first quarter of 2021. During the second quarter of 2021, the Company recorded consolidated net income (including non-controlling interest) of $54.5 million, an increase of 110% from the first quarter of 2021. Second quarter 2021 Adjusted EBITDA (as defined and reconciled below) was $76.0 million, an increase of 16% from the first quarter of 2021.

Second quarter operated capital expenditures totaled $11.9 million and aggregate contributions to equity method joint ventures were $2.8 million. Rattler also received proceeds of $9.1 million in distributions from equity method investments during the quarter.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure used by management and external users of its financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful because the measure allows it to more effectively evaluate the Company's operating performance and compare the results of its operations period to period without regard to its financing methods or capital structure.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to Rattler Midstream LP plus net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interest before interest expense (net of amount capitalized), depreciation, amortization and accretion on assets and liabilities of Rattler Midstream Operating LLC, its proportional depreciation and interest expense related to equity method investments, its proportional impairments and abandonments related to equity method investments, non-cash unit-based compensation expense, impairment and abandonments, (gain) loss on disposal of assets, (gain) loss from sale of equity method investment, provision for income taxes and other. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA is net income (loss). However, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income (loss) or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). Adjusted EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income (loss), and these measures may vary from those of other companies. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA as presented below may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

The Company does not provide guidance on the reconciling items between forecasted net income (loss) and forecasted Adjusted EBITDA due to the uncertainty regarding timing and estimates of these items. Rattler provides a range for the forecasts of net income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA to allow for the variability in timing and uncertainty of estimates of reconciling items between forecasted net income (loss) and forecasted Adjusted EBITDA. Therefore, the Company cannot reconcile forecasted net income (loss) to forecasted Adjusted EBITDA without unreasonable effort.

The following table presents a reconciliation of net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, to Adjusted EBITDA for each of the periods indicated:

Adjusted net income (loss) is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure equal to net income (loss) adjusted for (gain) loss on disposal of assets, gain (loss) on sale of equity method investments and related income tax adjustments. Management believes adjusted net income (loss) is useful because the measure provides useful information to analysts and investors for analysis of its operating results on a consistent, comparable basis from period to period. The Company's computation of adjusted net income (loss) may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies or to such measure in our credit facility or any of our other contracts.

Operating cash flow before working capital changes, which is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, represents net cash provided by operating activities as determined under GAAP without regard to changes in operating assets and liabilities. The GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to operating cash flow before working capital changes is net cash provided by operating activities. Management believes operating cash flow before working capital changes is an accepted measure which reflects cash flow from operating activities, additions to property, plant and equipment and net investments in its equity method investments across periods on a consistent basis. The Company also uses this measure because adjusted operating cash flow relates to the timing of cash receipts and disbursements that the Company may not control and may not relate to the period in which the operating activities occurred. This allows the Company to compare its operating performance with that of other companies without regard to financing methods and capital structure.

Free Cash Flow, which is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, is operating cash flow before working capital changes net of additions to property, plant, and equipment, contributions to equity method investments and distributions from equity method investments, proceeds from the sale of equity method investments, proceeds from the sale of real estate and other. Recurring Free Cash Flow, which is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, is Free Cash Flow less contributions to equity method investments, proceeds from the sale of equity method investments, proceeds from the sale of real estate and other investing cash flows. The GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to Free Cash Flow and Recurring Free Cash Flow is net cash provided by operating activities. Management believes that Free Cash Flow and Recurring Free Cash Flow are useful to investors as they provide the amount of cash available for reducing debt, investing in additional capital projects or paying dividends. These measures should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net cash provided by operating activities as an indicator of operating performance. The Company's computation of operating cash flow before working capital changes, Free Cash Flow and Recurring Free Cash Flow may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

The following tables present a reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to operating cash flow before working capital changes, to Free Cash Flow and to Recurring Free Cash Flow:
