[(1)] Non-GAAP financial measure; see attached reconciliation schedules at the end of this release.

Combined Base and Variable Dividend to be Paid in September

The Company's board of directors has elected to pay a dividend of $1.7625 per share in the third quarter, which reflects the combination of a variable dividend of $1.3000 per share and a base fixed dividend of $0.4625 per share. This dividend will be paid on September 29, 2022 to shareholders of record as of September 15, 2022. Additional detail regarding the calculation of the variable dividend can be found in the Company's new investor presentation.

Chris Doyle, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I'm very pleased with our performance during the second quarter. We are seeing the benefits of 18 months of large-scale DJ Basin-focused M&A allowing us to deliver better-than-expected volumes, manage industry-wide cost inflation, and generate significant free cash flow which we are aggressively returning to shareholders, all while preserving the strength of our balance sheet.”

Second Quarter 2022 Results

During the second quarter of 2022, the Company reported average daily sales of 175.2 MBoe/d. Product mix for the second quarter was 46% crude oil, 30% natural gas, and 24% natural gas liquids. The table below provides sales volumes, product mix, and average sales prices for the second quarter 2022 and 2021.

    Three Months Ended June 30,
      2022       2021     % Change
Avg. Daily Sales Volumes:            
Crude oil (Bbls/d)     80,312       20,936     284 %
Natural gas (Mcf/d)     317,621       70,391     351 %
Natural gas liquids (Bbls/d)     41,974       9,655     335 %
Crude oil equivalent (Boe/d)     175,223       42,323     314 %
             
Product Mix            
Crude oil     46 %     49 %    
Natural gas     30 %     28 %    
Natural gas liquids     24 %     23 %    
             
Average Sales Prices (before derivatives):        
Crude oil (per Bbl)   $ 106.48     $ 60.85     75 %
Natural gas (per Mcf)   $ 7.10     $ 2.31     207 %
Natural gas liquids (per Bbl)   $ 43.79     $ 28.20     55 %
Crude oil equivalent (per Boe)   $ 72.17     $ 40.37     79 %

Capital expenditures were $238.6 million for the second quarter of 2022, which included $23.9 million of land and midstream capital expenditures. The Company drilled 40 gross (36.6 net) operated wells, completed 27 gross (20.3 net) operated wells, and turned to sales 27 gross (21.5 net) operated wells during the second quarter.

Net crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids revenue for the second quarter of 2022 increased to $1.2 billion compared to $817.8 million for the first quarter of 2022. The increase was a result of higher crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids realized prices and an increase in sales volumes. Crude oil accounted for approximately 68% of total revenue for the quarter. Differentials for the Company's crude oil production, relative to WTI, averaged approximately negative $2.35 per barrel in the quarter. Civitas has recently began to market more of its oil sales volumes in order to achieve the most optimal sales prices; consequently, the Company's oil price differentials have improved and gathering, transportation and processing expenses have increased due to the transportation fees associated with this strategy.

LOE for the second quarter of 2022 on a unit basis increased to $2.63 per Boe from $2.52 per Boe in the first quarter of 2022.

Rocky Mountain Infrastructure (“RMI”) net effective cost for the second quarter 2022 was $0.43 per Boe, which consists of $0.47 per Boe of midstream operating expense offset by $0.04 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 $29.7 million for the second quarter of 2022, which included $6.1 million in non-cash stock-based compensation and $3.4 million of other non-recurring G&A. Recurring cash G&A, which excludes non-recurring and non-cash items, was $20.1 million for the second quarter of 2022. On a per unit basis, the Company's recurring cash G&A decreased 27% sequentially from $1.73 per Boe in the first quarter of 2022 to $1.26 per Boe in the second quarter of 2022.

Recurring cash G&A and RMI net effective cost are non-GAAP financial measures. Please see Schedule 7 and Schedule 8 at the end of this release for a reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP measure.

Acquisition of Interests in Operated Wells

On July 5, 2022, Civitas closed on Purchase and Sale Agreements to acquire non-operating interests in certain of the Company's operated wells for $81.6 million in cash (the "Acquisition"), subject to customary purchase price adjustments. Net volumes acquired in the Acquisition are expected to be approximately 2 Mboe/d over the next 12 months. In conjunction with the Acquisition, the Company also entered into derivative arrangements to hedge the associated net volumes acquired through 2024. The Company's current derivative positions are shown in the latest investor presentation, which was published on the investor relations section of the corporate website today.

2022 Guidance

Civitas is updating its guidance items for 2022 as shown below. This new guidance incorporates roughly 1 Mboe/d of additional production in 2022 from the Acquisition. The Company now expects an average crude oil price differential of roughly negative $4.00-5.00/Bbl relative to WTI during the year and also expects to pay $75-125 million in cash income taxes in 2022 assuming $100/Bbl WTI oil for the remainder of the year.

2022 Updated Guidance Low   High
D&C Capital Expenditures ($MM) $890 -- $940
Land, Midstream & Other Capital Expenditures ($MM) $80 -- $100
Total Production (MBoe/d) 162 -- 168
Oil Production (MBbl/d) 73 -- 76
% Liquids 68% -- 70%
Lease Operating Expenses ($/Boe) $2.65 -- $2.80
Gathering, Transportation and Processing Expenses ($/Boe) $4.25 -- $4.75
Midstream Operating Expenses ($/Boe) $0.45 -- $0.55
Recurring Cash G&A Expenses ($MM, 2H22) $42 -- $47
Production Taxes (% of revenue) 8% -- 9%
Note: Guidance is based on $100/Bbl WTI oil and $8.00/MMbtu Henry Hub gas for the remainder of the year. Guidance is forward-looking information that is subject to considerable change and numerous risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the Company’s control.

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. Management believes adjusted net income 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 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.

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 June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,

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 June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,
      2022       2021       2022       2021  
General and administrative expense   $ 29,666     $ 12,144     $ 65,386     $ 21,395

Non-recurring general and administrative expense [(1)]     (3,449 )     (1,294 )     (6,335 )     (1,294 )
Recurring Cash G&A   $ 20,082     $ 8,655     $ 44,826     $ 16,294  
                 
[(1) ] For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, non-recurring general and administrative expense represents certain one-time expenditures including, but not limited to, donations towards humanitarian relief in Ukraine, CEO cash severance costs, and CEO transition costs. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, non-recurring general and administrative expense represents certain one-time expenditures including, but not limited to, legal fees and penalties assumed through the HighPoint Merger.

Schedule 8: 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 June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,
      2022       2021       2022       2021

RMI net effective cost   $ 6,887     $ 3,688     $ 11,332     $ 6,484  

Schedule 9: Free Cash Flow (in thousands, unaudited)

Free cash flow is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is calculated as net cash provided by operating activities before changes in current assets and liabilities less exploration and development of oil and natural gas properties before changes in working capital related to drilling expenditures. Civitas believes free cash flow provides a useful measure of available cash generated by operating activities for other investing and financing activities.

The following table presents a reconciliation of the GAAP financial measure of net cash provided by operating activities to the non-GAAP financial measure of free cash flow.

    Three Months Ended June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,
