  • Reported $853 million of adjusted EBITDAX (non-GAAP).

Full Year

  • Increased oil production volumes 25% year over year.
  • Completed $1.3 billion in non-core asset sales.
  • Paid $100 million in dividends, initiated a $1.5 billion share repurchase program and repurchased $250 million of shares in 2019.

2020 Outlook

  • Planning a $2.6 to $2.8 billion capital program, representing a 10% reduction year over year at the midpoint of the guidance.
  • Expecting to generate 10% to 12% annual oil volume growth, pro forma for the New Mexico Shelf divestiture.

See "Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for descriptions of the above non-GAAP measures as well as a reconciliation of these measures to the associated GAAP (as defined herein) measures.

Tim Leach, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "During the fourth quarter, we delivered strong operational and financial performance, with oil volumes exceeding our guidance range and cash flow from operations totaling $801 million, excluding working capital changes. This exceeded exploration and development costs of $614 million, resulting in free cash flow of $187 million for the quarter. Our cost structure continued to improve as well, with fourth quarter controllable costs coming in below our year-end 2020 target of $9.00 per Boe.

We carry this focus into 2020. Our strategic priorities are to grow margins, grow free cash flow, grow distributions and advance our sustainability progress. We are off to a strong start with a disciplined, returns-focused capital program that is expected to increase oil production 10% to 12% year over year on a pro forma basis for asset sales. The capital program also enables us to strengthen distributions to shareholders, with a 60% increase to our quarterly dividend. With improving capital efficiency and a strong foundation of high-margin drilling opportunities, Concho is well positioned to deliver strong returns for investors."

Fourth-Quarter 2019 Summary

Fourth-quarter 2019 oil production volumes increased 8% year over year to 215 thousand barrels per day (MBopd). Natural gas production for fourth-quarter 2019 totaled 735 million cubic feet per day (MMcfpd). The Company’s total production for fourth-quarter 2019 grew 10% year over year to 337 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day (MBoepd).

Net loss for fourth-quarter 2019 was $471 million, or $2.38 per share. Special items impacting earnings for the quarter included a $201 million goodwill impairment charge and a $133 million loss on the disposition of assets, primarily related to certain exchanges of oil and natural gas properties. Excluding these and other special items, fourth-quarter 2019 adjusted net income (non-GAAP) was $206 million, or $1.03 per share. Concho’s average realized price for oil and natural gas for fourth-quarter 2019, excluding the effect of commodity derivatives, was $56.63 per Bbl and $1.88 per Mcf, respectively.

Achieved Controllable Cost Target Early

The Company is focused on improving operating margins by reducing its cost structure and established a $9.00 per Boe controllable cost target by year-end 2020. Controllable costs include oil and natural gas production expenses (consisting of lease operating and workover expenses), cash general and administrative expenses (which excludes non-cash stock-based compensation) and interest expense. For fourth-quarter 2019, controllable costs totaled $8.43 per Boe, representing a 17% decrease year over year and achieving the Company's target one year early.

Generated Strong Cash Flow

For fourth-quarter 2019, cash flow from operating activities was $769 million, including $32 million in working capital changes. Operating cash flow before working capital changes (non-GAAP) was $801 million, exceeding fourth quarter costs incurred for exploration and development activities of $614 million.

Completed New Mexico Shelf Asset Sale

On November 1, 2019, the Company completed the previously-announced sale of its New Mexico Shelf assets. The sale proceeds enabled Concho to achieve its debt reduction target, by paying down its credit facility, while delivering additional returns to shareholders under its $1.5 billion share repurchase program. During fourth-quarter 2019, the Company repurchased 3.3 million shares for $250 million at an average price of $75.75 per share.

Full-Year 2019 Summary

Total production for 2019 increased 26% to 331 MBoepd, including a 25% increase in oil production to 209 MBopd. Natural gas production for 2019 was 731 MMcfpd.

For 2019, Concho’s average realized price for oil and natural gas, excluding the effect of commodity derivatives, was $54.03 per Bbl and $1.74 per Mcf, respectively, compared with $56.22 per Bbl and $3.40 per Mcf, respectively, for 2018.

Net loss for 2019 was $705 million, or $3.55 per share, compared with net income of $2.3 billion, or $13.25 per share, in 2018. Excluding non-cash and special items, full-year 2019 adjusted net income (non-GAAP) was $611 million, or $3.05 per share, compared with adjusted net income of $792 million, or $4.59 per share, for full-year 2018.

Adjusted EBITDAX (non-GAAP) for 2019 totaled $3.1 billion, compared with $2.8 billion in 2018.

For 2019, cash flow from operating activities was $2.8 billion, including $40 million in working capital changes. Operating cash flow before working capital changes (non-GAAP) was $2.9 billion. Costs incurred for exploration and development activities totaled $3.0 billion for the year.

2019 Proved Reserves

At December 31, 2019, Concho’s estimated proved reserves totaled 1.0 billion Boe, compared to 1.2 billion Boe at year-end 2018. The Company’s proved reserves are approximately 62% oil and 38% natural gas. Proved developed reserves totaled 745 MMBoe, or 74% of total proved reserves, compared to 69% at year-end 2018. The reduction in proved reserves year over year is primarily attributable to the sale of the Company's New Mexico Shelf assets, performance revisions from the Company's well-spacing tests, the decline in oil and natural gas prices used to determine proved reserves and the removal of proved undeveloped reserves that the Company no longer expects to develop within the SEC mandated development window. For a summary of the Company’s estimated proved reserves, see Estimated Year-End Proved Reserves below.

Outlook

For 2020, Concho is planning to invest $2.6 to $2.8 billion. The Company's activity is expected to result in 300 to 320 gross operated well completions with an average lateral length of 10,000 feet, as compared to 294 gross operated well completions with an average lateral length of approximately 9,000 feet in 2019. This activity reflects efficiency gains that the Company has realized, which enable the Company to complete approximately 10% more lateral feet year over year on approximately 90% of the capital. Oil production volumes are expected to increase 10% to 12% year over year (pro forma for the sale of the New Mexico Shelf assets). First-quarter 2020 production is expected to be 316 to 325 MBoepd (202 to 208 MBopd).

60% Increase in Quarterly Dividend

Our high-quality asset base and strong operating margins provide sustainable free cash flow growth that supports increasing returns to shareholders. Consistent with Concho's strategic priorities to grow margins, free cash flow and distributions to shareholders, the Company's Board of Directors approved a 60% increase to the quarterly dividend, from $0.125 to $0.20 per share. The next quarterly dividend is payable on March 27, 2020, to stockholders of record as of February 28, 2020.

Concho Resources Inc.
Earnings per Share
Unaudited

The Company uses the two-class method of calculating earnings per share because certain of the Company’s unvested share-based awards qualify as participating securities.

The Company’s basic earnings (loss) per share attributable to common stockholders is computed as (i) net income (loss) as reported, (ii) less participating basic earnings (iii) divided by weighted average basic common shares outstanding. The Company’s diluted earnings (loss) per share attributable to common stockholders is computed as (i) basic earnings (loss) attributable to common stockholders, (ii) plus reallocation of participating earnings (iii) divided by weighted average diluted common shares outstanding.

The following table reconciles the Company’s earnings (loss) from operations and earnings (loss) attributable to common stockholders to the basic and diluted earnings (loss) used to determine the Company’s earnings per share amounts for the periods indicated under the two-class method:

(a) Unvested restricted stock awards represent participating securities because they participate in nonforfeitable dividends or distributions with the common equity holders of the Company. Participating earnings represent the distributed and undistributed earnings of the Company attributable to the participating securities. Unvested restricted stock awards do not participate in undistributed net losses as they are not contractually obligated to do so.
