(See accompanying tables at the end of this press release that reconcile adjusted operating income, a non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.) 

INTEREST EXPENSE

Interest expense for the quarter was $13.1 million, or $1.98 per Mcfe, versus $12.5 million, or $1.26 per Mcfe in the prior year period.  Non-cash interest expense associated with the Company's long term debt comprised 26% of the total, or $3.4 million ($0.52 per Mcfe).  For the year, interest expense was $52.4 million, or $1.67 per Mcfe, versus $49.4 million, or $1.23 per Mcfe in the prior year.  Non-cash interest expense comprised 24% of the total for the year, or $12.8 million ($0.41 per Mcfe). 

CAPITAL EXPENDITURES

Capital expenditures for the quarter were $57.2 million, of which $54.0 million was spent on drilling and completion costs and $3.1 million on leasehold acquisition, facilities and other expenditures.  For the full year 2012, capital expenditures totaled $250.7 million, of which $218.7 million was for drilling and completion costs (90% oil directed activities) and $32.0 million was for leasehold, infrastructure and other miscellaneous expenditures.  Drilling and completion expenditures of $218.7 million were comprised of $94.6 million for wells drilled in 2012 that had new reserve additions, $73.2 million, or 33% of the Company's drilling and completion capital expenditures for the year, for the conversion of 16 proved undeveloped reserve locations to proved developed reserves in 2012, $28.5 million for wells with drilling and/or completion operations in 2012 that did not have reserves booked at year-end and $22.4 million of carry-over drilling and completion costs from wells drilled in prior years.

YEAR-END RESERVES

The Company's proved oil and natural gas reserves as of December 31, 2012 were 333.1 Bcfe, versus 490 Bcfe in the prior year period.  The Company incurred negative reserve revisions of 121 Bcfe of natural gas reserves at year-end that were on the books at year-end 2011 primarily related to the loss of proved undeveloped natural gas reserves, mainly in Northwest Louisiana and East Texas areas, as a result of such reserves being uneconomic under SEC pricing.  The Company also sold 36.1 Bcfe during the year in an asset sale of a non-core property.  Year-end proved reserves were 76% natural gas, 24% oil and liquids (an increase from 17% at year-end 2011) and 48% developed.  The present value, using a 10% discount rate of the future net cash flows before income taxes of the proved reserves ("PV-10"), was $359.1 million, using SEC pricing of $2.85 per MMBtu for natural gas and $94.71 per barrel of oil.  At current five year futures NYMEX pricing of $90.13 per barrel of oil (WTI) and $4.17 per MMBtu of natural gas, the year-end proved reserves would have been 442 Bcfe and the related PV-10 would have been $530 million.  Year-end PV-10 of proved reserves is a non-GAAP financial measure.  Please refer to "Other Information" section for additional disclosure and nformation.

The Company had proved new reserve additions from its oil directed activities in 2012 of 5.40 million BOE (32.4 Bcfe) and proved developed reserve additions, adjusted for the conversion of proved undeveloped reserve locations to proved developed reserves, of 5.87 million BOE (35.2 Bcfe).  The Company had approximately $202.1 million of net drilling and completion capital expenditures associated with these 2012 wells, for an adjusted organic finding and development cost of $6.23 per Mcfe ($37.43 per BOE).  Adjusted proved developed finding and development cost for 2012 wells was $5.74 per Mcfe ($34.45 per BOE).  Approximately 90% of the drilling and completion capital expenditures associated with 2012 wells were from oil-focused activities.

The Company's successful Eagle Ford Shale drilling program was the primary driver of the growth in proved oil and liquids reserves in 2012.

The following table reflects the changes in the proved reserve estimates since year-end 2011:

CRUDE OIL AND NATURAL GAS DERIVATIVES

The Company realized a gain of $17.1 million on its derivatives not designated as hedges and an unrealized loss of $12.6 million, for a net gain on derivatives of $4.6 million for the quarter.

During the quarter, the Company hedged an additional 2,000 barrels of oil per day for 2013, bringing the total hedged oil volumes for 2013 to 3,500 barrels of oil per day at a blended average price of $94.50 per barrel.

LIQUIDITY

The Company exited the year with $1.2 million in cash and $95.0 million drawn on its senior bank revolving credit facility, providing $116.2 million of available liquidity as the Company entered 2013. The Company's borrowing base is currently $210 million, with a new borrowing base expected in the second quarter.  The Company expects to finance the vast majority of its 2013 capital expenditure budget with cash on hand and increasing cash flow driven by growth in oil volumes. 

OPERATIONAL UPDATE

For the quarter, the Company conducted drilling operations on 14 gross (8 net) wells, of which 11 gross (7 net) were in the Eagle Ford and 3 gross (1 net) were in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale Trend.  A total of 9 gross (7 net) wells were added to production during the quarter, of which 8 gross (5 net) were in the Eagle Ford.  For the year, the Company conducted drilling operations on 46 gross (27 net) wells, with a 100% success rate.  As of December 31, 2012, the Company had 20 gross (11 net) wells waiting on completion, with 13 gross (6 net) in the Haynesville Shale Trend and 7 gross (5 net) in the Eagle Ford Shale Trend.

Tuscaloosa Marine Shale Trend ("TMS")

The Company previously reported production results on its Crosby 12H-1 (50% WI), the initial operated well completed in the field, at a then 24-hour peak production rate of 1,150 BOE per day on a 15/64 choke with 2,700 psi. The well improved after the announcement, and achieved a 24-hour peak rate of 1,300 BOE and has averaged 1,200 BOE per day over the initial 15 day period, comprised of 1,100 barrels of oil and 600 Mcf of gas per day.  Based on the success of the Crosby well and the Company's increasing confidence in the economic potential of the play, the Company will accelerate the timing of its next operated well and now anticipates spudding its Smith 29H-1 (~ 75% WI) well in Amite County, Mississippi in April, and as previously stated, has increased its 2013 allocation of capital to the play to $50 million, which is the higher end of its guidance. Upon additional funding, the Company will consider accelerating its activity level further in the TMS.   

The Company is currently participating as a non-operator in the completion of the Ash 31H-1 (12% WI) and Ash 31H-2 (12% WI) wells in Amite County, Mississippi. The wells, which are currently being fracked, are the initial wells in which the Company has participated that have landed above the zone that has caused wellbore instability.

The Company is currently participating as a non-operator in two development wells, the Anderson 17H-2 (7% WI) and Anderson 17H-3 (7% WI) wells.

Eagle Ford Shale Trend, LaSalle and Frio Counties, Texas

In the Eagle Ford Shale Trend, the Company conducted drilling operations on 11 gross (7 net) wells in the quarter, and expects to drill 24 – 28 gross (16 – 19 net) wells in 2013.  The Company has reduced its drill time on recent wells by approximately 57% from the initial wells drilled in the field, to 10 days for an average 6,000 foot lateral, which along with a reduction in frac costs, has substantially decreased the well costs and increased the well count for the year.

Haynesville Shale Trend

The Company expects to complete 13 gross (6 net) previously drilled Haynesville Shale wells in the first half of 2013, comprised of 12 gross (5 net) non-operated wells in North Louisiana and 1 gross (1 net) operated well in the Angelina River Trend.  Total capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $22 million to complete these wells.  Assuming timely completion, the Company expects to grow natural gas volumes during 2013 from these completions by approximately 10%. 

OTHER INFORMATION

In this press release, the Company refers to several non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDAX, DCF, drilling and completion capital expenditures, Adjusted revenues, Adjusted operating income, Adjusted net loss applicable to common stock, Cash operating margin and year-end pretax present worth of proved reserves discounted at 10% "PV-10".  Management believes Adjusted EBITDAX, Discretionary cash flow, Adjusted revenues, Adjusted operating income, Adjusted net loss applicable to common stock and Cash operating margin are good financial indicators of the Company's ability to internally generate operating funds, while drilling and completion capital expenditures are a useful measure of the Company's annual drilling expenditures.  Neither discretionary cash flow, nor Adjusted EBITDAX, should be considered an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities, as defined by GAAP.  Adjusted revenues should not be considered an alternative to total revenues, as defined by GAAP.  Adjusted operating income should not be considered an alternative to operating income (loss), as defined by GAAP.  Adjusted net loss applicable to common stock should not be considered an alternative to net loss applicable to common stock, as defined by GAAP.  Nor should drilling and completion capital expenditures be considered an alternative to costs incurred in oil and gas property acquisition, exploration, and development activities, as defined by GAAP.  Management also believes that year-end PV-10 of proved reserves discounted at 10% is a helpful comparative indicator of proved reserves from company to company without regard to an individual company's tax position, as is taken into account in reducing PV-10 by the discounted amount of estimated future income tax expense, resulting in the GAAP-required standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows ("SMOG").  The company's discounted future income taxes are estimated to be $1.6 million at December 31, 2012 to arrive at a SMOG of $357.4 million.  Management believes that all of these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors because they are monitored and used by Company management and widely used by professional research analysts in the valuation and investment recommendations of companies within the oil and gas exploration and production industry. 

Initial production rates are subject to decline over time and should not be regarded as reflective of sustained production levels.  In particular, production from horizontal drilling in shale oil and natural gas resource plays and tight natural gas plays that are stimulated with extensive pressure fracturing are typically characterized by significant early declines in production rates.

Unless otherwise stated, oil production volumes include condensate.

Certain statements in this news release regarding future expectations and plans for future activities may be regarded as "forward looking statements" within the meaning of the Securities Litigation Reform Act.  They are subject to various risks, such as financial market conditions, changes in commodities prices and costs of drilling and completion, operating hazards, drilling risks, and the inherent uncertainties in interpreting engineering data relating to underground accumulations of oil and gas, as well as other risks discussed in detail in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 and other subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in such forward looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct.

Goodrich Petroleum is an independent oil and gas exploration and production company listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

Management presents this measure because (i) it is consistent with the manner in which the company's performance is measured relative to the performance of its peers, (ii) this measure is more comparable to earnings estimates provided by securities analysts, and (iii) charges or amounts excluded cannot be reasonably estimated and guidance provided by the company excludes information regarding these types of items. These adjusted amounts are not a measure of financial performance under GAAP. 













(2) Discretionary cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities before changes in operating assets and liabilities. Management believes that the non-GAAP measure of operating cash flow is useful as an indicator of an oil and gas exploration and production company's ability to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service or incur additional debt. The company has also 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 may not relate to the period in which the operating activities occurred. Operating cash flow should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net cash provided by operating activities prepared in accordance with GAAP. 













(3) Adjusted EBITDAX is earnings before interest expense, income tax, DD&A, exploration expense and impairment of oil and gas properties. In calculating EBITDAX for this purpose, earnings include realized gains (losses) from derivatives but exclude unrealized gains (losses) from derivatives. Other excluded items include Interest income and other, Gain on sale of assets, Gain on extinguishment of debt and Other expense.













(4) Fully diluted shares excludes approximately 10.2 million and 10.1 million potentially dilutive instruments that were anti-dilutive due to the net income (loss) applicable to common stock for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively.  We report our financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). However, management believes certain non-GAAP performance measures may provide users of this financial information with additional meaningful comparisons between current results and the results of our peers and of prior periods.
