Additional detail regarding the calculation of the variable dividend can be found in the Company's new investor presentation.

Ben Dell, Chairman and Interim Chief Executive Officer, commented, “As Colorado's largest pure-play E&P company and the first to be carbon neutral, we are very excited about the future of Civitas. We are building a best in class, industry leading company with a simple approach to generating value through high quality assets, low operating costs and accretive consolidation while returning excess cash to shareholders. We had a solid quarter as a combined company execution wise, delivering on production and capex relative to our previously provided guidance, and we exited the year with very low leverage and substantial liquidity. We have continued to demonstrate our disciplined approach to M&A with the recently closed acquisition of Bison and we are following through on our commitment to return a substantial amount of cash to shareholders with the declaration of our first quarterly variable dividend, which will be paid in March in combination with the base dividend."

Capital expenditures were $170.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $299.4 million for the full-year 2021. The Company drilled 28 gross (22 net) operated wells, completed 47 gross (40 net) operated wells, and turned to sales 39 gross (33 net) operated wells during the fourth quarter. During the quarter, Civitas drilled a 3 mile horizontal well with a 16 degree tangent (1,500' stepout) in 3.85 days spud-to-TD (23,300+ feet), a record for the DJ Basin.

Net crude oil, natural gas liquids and natural gas revenue for the fourth quarter of 2021 increased to $510.5 million compared to $190.0 million for the third quarter of 2021. The increase was a result of higher crude oil, natural gas liquids and natural gas realized prices and a significant increase in sales volumes, primarily related the acquisitions that closed on November 1, 2021. Crude oil accounted for approximately 62% of total revenue for the quarter. Differentials for the Company's crude oil production averaged approximately $6.90 per barrel in the fourth quarter.

LOE for the fourth quarter of 2021 on a unit basis decreased to $2.22 per Boe, compared to $2.87 per Boe in the third quarter of 2021. Full-year 2021 LOE was $2.56 per Boe.

RMI net effective cost for the fourth quarter 2021 was $0.45 per Boe, which consists of $0.57 per Boe of RMI operating expense offset by $0.12 per Boe of RMI operating revenue from working interest partners. RMI full-year 2021 net effective cost was $0.63 per Boe, which consists of $0.85 per Boe of RMI operating expense offset by $0.23 per Boe of RMI operating revenue from working interest partners. RMI operating revenue from working interest partners is based on production volumes and the fees are not tied to crude oil or natural gas prices.

The Company's general and administrative ("G&A") expenses were $32.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, which included $9.5 million in non-cash stock-based compensation. Recurring cash G&A, which excludes non-recurring and non-cash items, was $21.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. On a per unit basis, the Company's recurring cash G&A decreased 13% sequentially from $2.31 per Boe in the third quarter of 2021 to $2.00 per Boe in the fourth quarter of 2021.

RMI net effective cost and recurring cash G&A are non-GAAP measures. Please see Schedule 8 and Schedule 9 at the end of this release for a reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP measure.

2021 Proved Reserves, Costs Incurred, and Finding and Development Costs

As of year-end 2021, the Company had proved reserves of 397.7 MMBoe, a 236% increase from year-end 2020 reserves. The Company's year-end 2021 proved reserves were comprised of 143.6 MMbbls of crude oil, 106.0 MMbbls of natural gas liquids, and 888.5 Bcf of natural gas, and 80% of the total proved reserves were proved-developed.

Schedule 5: Adjusted Net Income (in thousands, except per share amounts, unaudited)

Adjusted net income is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management to present a more comparable, recurring profitability between periods. The Company defines adjusted net income as net income after adjusting for (1) the impact of certain non-cash items and one-time transactions and correspondingly (2) the related tax effect in each period. Adjusted net income is not a measure of net income 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 net income.

  Three Months Ended December 31,   Twelve Months Ended December 31,
  2021   2020   2021   2020

Schedule 6: 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. 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, income taxes, depreciation, depletion, and amortization, impairment, exploration expenses and other similar non-cash and non-recurring charges. Adjusted EBITDAX is not a measure of net income 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.

  Three Months Ended December 31,   Twelve Months Ended December 31,
  2021   2020   2021   2020
Net income $ 163,700     $ 60,628     $ 178,921     $ 103,528

[(2)] Included as a portion of severance and ad valorem taxes in the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income.

Schedule 7: 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).

  12/31/2021
PV-10 [(1)] $ 5,327,157  
Present value of future income taxes discounted at 10%   (915,053 )
Standardized Measure $ 4,412,104  
(1) The 12-month average benchmark pricing used to estimate SEC proved reserves and PV-10 value for crude oil and natural gas was $66.56 per Bbl of WTI crude oil and $3.60 per MMBtu of natural gas at Henry Hub before differential adjustments. After differential adjustments, the Company's SEC pricing realizations for year-end 2021 were $61.60 per Bbl of oil, $30.60 per Bbl of natural gas liquids, and $2.60 per Mcf of natural gas.

Schedule 8: 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 December 31,   Twelve Months Ended December 31,
  2021   2020   2021   2020
General and administrative expense $ 32,013     $ 9,091     $ 65,132     $ 34,936  
Stock-based compensation   (9,462 )     (1,720 )     (15,558 )     (6,156 )
Non-recurring general and administrative expense   (1,165 )           (2,609 )     (1,337 )
Recurring cash G&A $ 21,386     $ 7,371     $ 46,965     $ 27,443  

Schedule 9: Rocky Mountain Infrastructure (“RMI”) Net Effective Cost (in thousands, unaudited)

RMI net effective cost is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management to assess only the net cash impact the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Rocky Mountain Infrastructure, LLC, has on the Company’s consolidated financials. Management believes the net effective cost 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 the RMI net effective cost as GAAP midstream operating expense less revenue generated from working interest partners utilizing the RMI assets.

The following table presents a reconciliation of the GAAP financial measures of midstream operating expense and RMI working interest partner revenue to the non-GAAP financial measure of RMI net effective cost.

  Three Months Ended December 31,   Twelve Months Ended December 31,
  2021   2020   2021   2020
Midstream operating expense $ 6,112     $ 3,610     $ 17,426     $ 14,948  
RMI working interest partner revenue   (1,323 )     (1,279 )     (4,625 )     (5,430 )
RMI net effective cost $ 4,789     $ 2,331     $ 12,801     $ 9,518
