ROCKROSE ENERGY PLC

 

("RockRose" or "the Company")

 

Unaudited results for the six months ended 30 June 2018

 

RockRose Energy PLC ("RockRose" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2018.

 

Chairman's Statement

 

Your Company continues to make strong progress and is in the process of completing two further acquisitions, which will more than double current production to over 11,000 boepd. All conditions precedent for the Dyas acquisition have now been satisfied. We continue to benefit from rising hydrocarbon prices. We are also observing an increase in the economic life of the portfolio with dates for decommissioning being delayed in line with the government's MER strategy. The Company sees the cash cost of decommissioning averaging around 20-25% of annual EBITDA for the next five years at current hydrocarbon prices.

 

We look forward to working with our new partners in the Arran development to bring this discovery on stream and benefiting from the impact of production and reserves from Arran on RockRose Energy's production profile, ensuring current production is exceeded or maintained until at least 2025.

Operational and Financial Update

 

Ø Strong revenue of $66.7m with average realised oil price of $72.85/bbl and gas price of $44.64/boe

Ø Average production of 5,176 boepd of which 444 boepd relates to gas production. (1H 2017: 0 boepd)

Ø Combined production (including Dyas B.V) in excess of 11,000 boepd for the period

Ø Return to shareholders of $31.5m (£23m (£1.50per share)) to shareholders in February 2018

Ø Payment of $13m refundable deposit for the Dyas BV acquisition is included in the period results

Ø Cash at Bank as at the date of this announcement is $108m, of which $52m is restricted.

 

Outlook

 

Ø Dyas acquisition - On 24th May the Group signed a Sale & Purchase Agreement (SPA) to acquire 100% of the issued share capital of Dyas B.V., and its subsidiary Dyas Infrastructure, which have various non-operated interests in producing fields in the Dutch sector of the North Sea and onshore Netherlands. Total consideration is €107 million. A refundable deposit of €10.7 million ($13 million) was paid on signing the SPA. All Conditions Precedent have now been met and completion will occur on 1st October.

Ø The effective date of the Dyas acquisition is 1st January 2018, and assuming the acquisition had taken place on this date, forecast production for the 12 months ending 31st December 2018 would be circa 11,000 boepd of which 50% is oil and 50% is gas. Forecast EBITDA would be expected to be in excess of $100 million for the full year.

Ø Arran acquisition - On the 9th August the Company signed a SPA to acquire a 20.43% interest in blocks, 23/11a, 23/16b and 23/16c, which contain the Arran field in the UK Central North Sea, from Dana Petroleum for a nominal consideration. On 19th September, RockRose further to the SPA, has signed an Equity Realignment Letter Agreement on Arran that takes the Company's interest to 30.43%. The acquisition adds a further 8.5 mmboe 2P reserves to the Group and 5,200 boepd of initial production post development. The acquisition is subject to OGA approval and assuming approval is granted the completion is expected to occur by the end of September.

Ø Tain development - The Group has commissioned ERC Equipoise to evaluate both the existing upside potential within the Blake field (30.82%) and, the nearby Tain satellite discovery (50%). The partners are committed to submitting an initial FDP by the end of the year.

Ø Ross and Blake extension update - The Group has also commissioned an independent report from Crondall Energy to review the FPSO options on the Blake & Ross field. The scope is in two parts; firstly looking at extending the life of the Bleo Holm vessel which is operated by Repsol Sinopec, the company's joint venture partner and then considering the alternative of  replacing the current vessel. The Bleo Holm is currently targeted to be on station until 2024. This is being undertaken to extend the life of the fields and give the opportunity to fully deliver other discovered hydrocarbons in the area. An extension of the field life of Blake and Ross to 2029 would increase reserves by circa 5.5mboe net to RockRose from the existing well stock.

 

 

 

Operational review

Producing assets

The average net production in the six months to 30th June 2018 was 5,176 boepd of which 444 boepd was gas production. Actual production was marginally below the budgeted annual production rate of 5,250 boepd due to the timing of maintenance work in some of the fields. However, this was more than offset by higher than budgeted oil and gas prices with revenue 20% above budget.

Average operating expense per boe produced was $33.81 compared to a budget of $32.60 due to increased operating costs as a result of the earlier than planned maintenance work.  It is expected that full year operating expenditure will be in line with budget.

 

Financial review

The Group generated revenue of $66.7m in the first six months of 2018 with total sales of 945,982 boe realising an average oil price of $72.85/bbl and gas price of $44.64/boe.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is considered by the Company to be a useful additional measure to help understand underlying performance.

EBITDA for the first six months of 2018 was $21.2m (1H 2017: $(2.4m)) and the profit after tax was $5.1m (1H 2017: $(2.4m loss)). The adjustment to this figure relates to oil derivative losses of $7.8m which have been recognised in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income due to the higher oil prices than average hedged oil prices of $67.9 per barrel. Of the total losses recognised, $1.3m relates to realised loss and $6.4m of unrealised losses which could increase/decrease by the year end if the oil price increases/decreases.

Principal risks and uncertainties

 

The Group has an established risk management reporting framework, as detailed in the Group's 2017 Annual Report and Accounts on page 4, which includes the requirement for all businesses to identify, evaluate and monitor risks and take steps to reduce, eliminate or manage the risk.

 

There are a number of principal risks that could have a material impact on the Group's performance over the remaining six months of the financial year and could cause actual results to differ materially from expected and historical results.

 

Some of the risks that RockRose is exposed to, which could have a material adverse impact on the Group, arise from the specific activities undertaken by the Group, whereas other risks are common to many exploration and production companies.  The principal risks are: reserves discovery, development and project delivery; operational performance; commodity prices; decommissioning cost estimates and timing; fluctuations in exchanges rates; and credit.  Details of those principal risks facing the Group are on pages 4 of the Group's 2017 Annual Report and Accounts.

 

The Directors do not consider that the principal risks have changed significantly since the publication of the 2017 Annual Report and Accounts, and as such, these risks continue to apply to the Group for the remaining six months of the financial year.

 

 

 

STATEMENT OF DIRECTORS RESPONSIBILITIES

 

The directors confirm, to the best of their knowledge, that these condensed interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34, "Interim Financial Reporting", as adopted by the European Union and that the interim management report includes a fair review of the information required by DTR 4.2.7 and DTR 4.2.8, namely:

 

·      an indication of important events that have occurred during the period and their impact on the condensed set of financial statements, and a description of the principal risks and uncertainties for the remaining six months of the period; and

 

·      material related-party transactions in the period, and any material changes in the related party transactions are described in the annual report.

 

The directors believe that the interim results taken as a whole are fair, balanced and understandable. In arriving at this conclusion the Board considered the opinion and recommendation of the Audit Committee who undertook the following work:

·      review of early drafts of the interim results;

·      regular review of and discussion over the financial results during the period, including briefings by Group finance; and

·      receipt and review of a report from the external auditors.

 

The directors of the Company are listed on page 12 in the Group's 2017 Annual Report and Accounts and on the Company's website: www. rockroseenergy.com.

Independent review report to RockRose Energy plc

Report on the interim condensed consolidated financial statements

 

Our conclusion

 

We have reviewed RockRose Energy plc's condensed consolidated interim financial statements (the "interim financial statements") in the interim results of RockRose Energy plc for the 6 month period ended 30 June 2018. Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the interim financial statements are not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34, 'Interim Financial Reporting', as adopted by the European Union and the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules sourcebook of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.

 

What we have reviewed

The interim financial statements comprise:

·    the Condensed Consolidated Interim Statement of Financial Position as at 30 June 2018;

·    the Condensed Consolidated Interim Statement of Comprehensive Income for the period then ended;

·    the Condensed Consolidated Interim Statement of Changes in Equity for the period then ended;

·    the Condensed Consolidated Interim Statement  of Cash Flows for the period then ended; and

·    the explanatory notes to the condensed consolidated interim financial statements.

 

The interim financial statements included in the interim results have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34, 'Interim Financial Reporting', as adopted by the European Union and the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules sourcebook of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.

 

As disclosed in note 1 to the interim financial statements, the financial reporting framework that has been applied in the preparation of the full annual financial statements of the Group is applicable law and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union.

 

Responsibilities for the interim financial statements and the review

Our responsibilities and those of the directors

The interim results, including the interim financial statements, is the responsibility of, and has been approved by, the directors. The directors are responsible for preparing the interim results in accordance with the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules sourcebook of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.

 

Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on the interim financial statements in the interim results based on our review. This report, including the conclusion, has been prepared for and only for the company for the purpose of complying with the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules sourcebook of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority and for no other purpose.  We do not, in giving this conclusion, accept or assume responsibility for any other purpose or to any other person to whom this report is shown or into whose hands it may come save where expressly agreed by our prior consent in writing.

 

What a review of interim financial statements involves

We conducted our review in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements (UK and Ireland) 2410, 'Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity' issued by the Auditing Practices Board for use in the United Kingdom. A review of interim financial information consists of making enquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures.

 

A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (UK) and, consequently, does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

 

We have read the other information contained in the interim results and considered whether it contains any apparent misstatements or material inconsistencies with the information in the interim financial statements.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 30 JUNE 2018

 

1.      Principal accounting policies

 

General information

 

RockRose Energy PLC ('the Company' or together with its subsidiaries, 'the Group') has been formed to make acquisitions of companies or businesses in the upstream oil and gas and power sector.

The Company is a public limited company incorporated on 1 July 2015, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange and incorporated and domiciled in England and Wales.

The address of its registered office is Dashwood House, 69 Old Broad Street, London, EC2M 1QS.

 

Basis of preparation

These condensed interim financial statements for the six months ended 30 June 2018 have been prepared in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the Financial Conduct Authority and with IAS 34, 'Interim financial reporting', as adopted by the European Union.  The condensed interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2017, which have been prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union.

 

These condensed interim financial statements do not comprise statutory accounts within the meaning of section 434 of the Companies Act 2006. Statutory accounts for the year ended 31 December 2017 were approved by the board of directors on 31 March 2018 and delivered to the Registrar of Companies. The report of the auditors on those accounts was unqualified, did not contain an emphasis of matter paragraph and did not contain any statement under section 498 of the Companies Act 2006.

 

Going concern

These condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis. The Directors have considered the application of the going concern basis of accounting and are satisfied that for the foreseeable future the Group will continue in operational existence and will have adequate resources to meet its liabilities as they fall due. The Directors continue to adopt the going concern basis of accounting in preparing these condensed consolidated interim financial statements.

 

Accounting policies

The accounting policies applied in these condensed consolidated interim financial statements are consistent with those followed in the preparation of the Group's financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2017.

A number of amendments to IFRSs became effective for the financial year beginning on 1 January 2018 however the group did not have to change its accounting policies or make material retrospective adjustments as a result of adopting these new standards.

 

Consolidation

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements include the financial statements of the Company and its subsidiary for the six months ended 30 June 2018.  Subsidiaries are all entities over which the group has control.  The group controls an entity when the group is exposed to, or has rights to, variable returns from its involvement with the entity and has the ability to affect those returns through its power over the entity.  Subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date on which control is transferred to the group. 

 

Segment reporting

In the opinion of the directors the operations of the company represent one segment, and are treated as such, when evaluating its performance. The chief operating decision maker is the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors reviews management accounts prepared for the company when assessing performance.

 

 

Estimates

The preparation of condensed consolidated interim financial statements requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, income and expenses. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

 

 

 

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 30 JUNE 2018

 

1.     Principal accounting policies (continued)

 

In preparing these condensed consolidated interim financial statements, the significant judgements made by management in applying the company's accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those applied to the consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2017.

.

 

Financial risk management

The Group's activities expose it to a variety of financial risks; market risk (including currency risk and price risk), credit risk and liquidity risk.

 

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements do not include all financial risk management information and disclosures required in the annual financial statements; they should be read in conjunction with the Group's annual financial statements as at 31 December 2017.

 

There have been no changes in any risk management policies since the year end.

6.     Earnings/(Loss) per share

 

Basic earnings / (loss) per share amounts are calculated by dividing the profit / (loss) for the period by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period. The weighted average number of shares excludes those shares held as treasury shares. The basic and diluted earnings / (loss) per share are the same as there are no instruments that have a dilutive effect on earnings.

The oil and gas assets consist of producing and development assets and decommissioning assets in accordance with IAS 16 'Property, Plant and Equipment'.

The administrative assets consist of fixture and fittings, computer equipment and leasehold improvements.

 

 

In assessing whether any impairment is required to the carrying value of assets, their carrying value is compared with their recoverable amount. The cash generating unit (CGU) assessed for impairment is generally the field, or group of fields where these are economically dependent. The recoverable amount is the higher of the asset's fair value less costs to sell or value in use. No indicators of impairment were identified for the Group's oil & gas assets as at 30 June 2018.
