Robert M. (“Rob”) Roosa, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Organic drilling activity continued to ramp in the third quarter with a record 1.7 net wells spud on our mineral position, which provides a strong leading indicator to an increased pace of PDP conversions during Q4 2021 and into 2022. The 1.7 net wells spud also points to activity rebounding to pre-COVID 2019 levels, during which time we averaged 1.4 net wells spud. Drilling activity and acquisitions drove a 20% increase in our September 30 th DUC inventory to 6.0 net locations, which will be converted by Pioneer Natural Resources Inc., Chevron Corporation, Diamondback Energy, Inc., ExxonMobil Corporation and PDC Energy, Inc. Collectively, these large, well-capitalized E&Ps operate 65% of our DUCs and are running an aggregate 26 frac crews in our basins, a 37% increase in frac crew activity versus Q2 2021.”

Mr. Roosa continued, “In the third quarter, our acquisition team deployed $12.8 million in ground game mineral acquisition capital, almost entirely to the Permian Basin. The acquired assets are comprised of 78% PDP, DUC and permit net locations, adding 0.9 net permits to our activity well inventory. Importantly, with our Q3 2021 portfolio rationalization efforts as well as our retained cash flow from operations and lease bonus, our Q3 2021 ground game acquisitions were almost entirely internally funded. Further, with our continued rationalization efforts in the STACK and elsewhere, based on a $15 million per quarter ground game run rate, our Q4 2021 acquisitions also look to be entirely internally funded.”

Blake C. Williams, Chief Financial Officer, added, “Our top-tier assets, paired with targeted acquisitions yielded strong third quarter results highlighted by continued record levels of revenue and Adjusted EBITDA (1). Realized pricing improved 7% over the second quarter, which along with our production uplift drove a 24% sequential increase in our variable dividend to $0.26 ($0.40 per share total dividend) (2) per share this quarter. We are also encouraged by our success over the last two quarters divesting non-core, undeveloped acreage for cash and re-deploying proceeds into more accretive cash flow returning opportunities. We remain committed to returning cash flow to shareholders and shortening the duration to payout for investors via portfolio rationalization and targeted accretive acquisitions.”

OPERATIONAL UPDATE

Mineral and Royalty Interest Ownership Update

During the third quarter 2021, the Company executed nine transactions acquiring approximately 415 net royalty acres (standardized to a 1/8th royalty interest) and deployed $12.8 million in capital. The Company focused approximately 97% of its mineral acquisition capital in the third quarter towards the Permian Basin. Third quarter acquisitions are expected to deliver near-term production and cash flow growth with the addition of 32 gross DUCs (0.1 net) and 128 gross permits (0.9 net) to inventory counts. The Company also divested 3,410 net royalty acres in the Anadarko basin generating $4.4 million in cash proceeds.

This represents a 7% increase relative to the three months ended June 30, 2021 and a 93% increase relative to the same prior-year period.

The Company saw general and administrative costs (before share-based compensation) continue to remain at record low levels in the third quarter 2021 totaling $3.0 million, which represents a 5% decrease relative to the same prior-year period.

The Company’s net income for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $18.9 million, up 23% from the three months ended June 30, 2021.

Quarterly Cash Dividend

The Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) has declared a quarterly cash dividend incorporating results for the third quarter 2021 of $0.40 per share of Class A common stock. This represents a 14% increase in payout compared to the dividend declared for the second quarter of 2021. The third quarter dividend represents a base dividend of $0.14 per share and a variable dividend of $0.26 per share and will be paid on December 1, 2021 to holders of record as of November 24, 2021. An amount equal to the cash dividend per share will also be set aside for each outstanding award granted under the long-term incentive plan for payment upon the vesting of such awards in accordance with their terms.

Future declarations of dividends are subject to approval by the Board and to the Board’s continuing determination that the declarations of dividends are in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. Future dividends may be adjusted at the Board’s discretion based on market conditions and capital availability.

Brigham Minerals Third Quarter 2021 Earnings Conference Call

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus, Discretionary Cash Flow and Discretionary Cash Flow ex lease bonus are non-GAAP supplemental financial measures used by our management and by external users of our financial statements such as investors, research analysts and others to assess the financial performance of our assets and their ability to sustain dividends over the long term without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis.

We define Adjusted Net Income as Net Income (Loss) before impairment of oil and gas properties, after tax. We define Adjusted EBITDA as Adjusted Net Income before depreciation, depletion and amortization, share-based compensation expense, interest expense, and income tax expense, less other income. We define Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus as Adjusted EBITDA further adjusted to eliminate the impacts of lease bonus and other revenues we receive due to the unpredictability of timing and magnitude of the revenue. We define Discretionary Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA, less cash interest expense and cash taxes. We define Discretionary Cash Flow ex lease bonus as Discretionary Cash Flow further adjusted to eliminate the impacts of lease bonus revenue.

Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus, Discretionary Cash Flow and Discretionary Cash Flow ex lease bonus do not represent and should not be considered alternatives to, or more meaningful than, net income or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP as measures of our financial performance. Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus, Discretionary Cash Flow and Discretionary Cash Flow ex lease bonus have important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some but not all items that affect net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Our computation of Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus, Discretionary Cash Flow and Discretionary Cash Flow ex lease bonus may differ from computations of similarly titled measures of other companies.

The following tables present a reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus, Discretionary Cash Flow and Discretionary Cash Flow ex lease bonus to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure for the periods indicated.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, forward-looking statements contained in this press release specifically include the expectations of plans, strategies, objectives and anticipated financial and operating results of the Company, including production and other guidance within this press release. These statements are based on certain assumptions made by the Company based on management’s experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions, anticipated future developments and other factors believed to be appropriate.
