Genie Energy Ltd. Reports Second Quarter 2015 Results

NEWARK, NJ--(Marketwired - August 06, 2015) - Genie Energy Ltd. (NYSE: GNE) (NYSE: GNEPRA) reported second quarter 2015 revenue of $39.5 million, negative Adjusted EBITDA* of $2.6 million, and a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $4.9 million ($0.22) per basic and diluted share.

  • Genie Energy's Afek subsidiary has completed drilling the second well of its multi-well exploratory program in Northern Israel. Hydrocarbons were found in both the first and second wells. While Afek continues to analyze the core samples and other data, the evidence to date is consistent with pre-drilling models that suggest a large resource with the potential for substantial volumes of oil in place. Determination of the nature of the resource, its volume and commercial potential will require further analysis and additional exploratory wells;
  • Genie Retail Energy (GRE), which operates Genie Energy's retail provider businesses, increased its meter base by 19,000 meters during the quarter to 377,000;
  • GRE generated Adjusted EBITDA* of $0.3 million in 2Q15 including the impact of a $1.5 million accrual on a legal matter;
  • In light of the progress achieved by Afek in Northern Israel and abundant growth potential at Genie Retail Energy, Genie Energy is sharpening its strategic focus on these two opportunities. Accordingly, Genie Energy is scaling back operations in Mongolia and suspending the dividend on Genie Energy common stock in order to preserve cash resources. The quarterly dividend on Genie Energy preferred stock has not changed.

MANAGEMENT COMMENTS
Howard Jonas, Genie Energy's Chairman and CEO, said, "Our Afek subsidiary has completed drilling of its second well in Northern Israel and is continuing to analyze the data from both wells. Based on preliminary results from the first two wells, including the presence of hydrocarbons from vertical sections at both sites, we are excited by the potential of the resource. However, we will likely have to drill at least several more wells and analyze the results before we are able to adequately characterize the nature and commercial potential of the resource. Genie Retail Energy is back in growth mode, adding 19,000 net meters in the second quarter, while delivering strong margins on sales of both electricity and natural gas. Looking ahead, we expect to continue to add net meters in our current territories, and are looking carefully at a number of options for geographic expansion. As we sharpen our strategic focus on the opportunities at Afek and Genie Retail Energy, we are reducing or eliminating expenditures in less promising projects and conserving cash."

** Genie Energy's Afek subsidiary accounts for its oil and gas exploration activities under the "successful efforts" method of accounting. Under this method, acquisition costs, costs of drilling exploratory wells, and exploratory-type stratigraphic test wells are capitalized on the balance sheet as "Capitalized exploration costs -- unproved oil and gas property" pending determination of whether the well has found proved reserves. Exploration costs, other than exploration drilling costs, are charged to expense in the statement of operations as "Exploration expense." In the three months ended June 30, 2015, Afek capitalized $6.7 million of drilling expenses and recorded $1.3 million of "Exploration expense" in the consolidated statements of operations.

In addition, in the consolidated statements of operations, $1.0 million in the three months ended June 30, 2014 relating to Afek's oil and gas activities previously included as "Research and development expense" were reclassified to "Exploration expense" to conform to the current year's presentation.

BALANCE SHEET AND CASH FLOW HIGHLIGHTS
At June 30, 2015, Genie Energy had $147.6 million in total assets, including $73.2 million in cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash (short and long term), and certificates of deposit. Liabilities totaled $34.5 million with no long term debt, and working capital (current assets less current liabilities) totaled $91.8 million.

Net cash provided by operating activities in 2Q15 was $5.8 million compared to $22.6 million in 2Q14. Net cash used in operating activities in 1Q15 was $9.3 million. The change from the previous year reflects the impact of the polar vortex in 2014 where receivables grew significantly in the first quarter and were collected in the second quarter.

Genie Retail Energy

Genie Retail Energy produced solid net meter (+19,000) and RCE (+10,000) growth in 2Q15 reflecting a significant increase in the pace of gross meter additions. Genie Retail added 79,000 gross meters compared to 55,000 meters in 2Q14 and 52,000 meters in 1Q15. The sequential increase reflects seasonal factors, increases in sales of green electricity, and the early success of "IDT Energy® SmartBudget" and other offerings with fixed rate characteristics as well as approximately 9,000 net electric meters acquired via a new sales channel that offers geographically concentrated opportunities for meters acquisitions with reduced customer acquisition costs and fixed rates.

Genie Retail Energy's average monthly customer churn increased to 6.3% in 2Q15 from 5.9% in 1Q15 but remained well below the 8.1% in 2Q14 following the polar vortex of 2014 and ensuing market volatility. The increase in churn reflects the accelerated pace of meter acquisitions. On average, newly acquired meters exhibit higher rates of churn than long tenured meters. Meters enrolled in fixed rate offerings constituted approximately 11% of GRE's electric load at June 30, 2015.

Decreases in revenue per kWh of electricity and per therm of natural gas and lower consumption of both commodities decreased revenue year over year by 19.0% to $39.5 million. However, Genie Retail increased gross margins as the underlying costs of both commodities decreased faster than revenues per unit sold. As a result, Genie Retail Energy's gross profit climbed 22.1% year over year to $14.0 million.

Genie Retail Energy's SG&A expense in 2Q15 increased 32.5% year over year to $13.9 million from $10.5 million in 2Q14. The increase was primarily due to a non-routine accrual of $1.5 million for estimated regulatory and legal expenses, as well as increases in personnel expense and customer acquisition costs associated with the increase in the rate of gross meter additions.

Genie Retail Energy generated Adjusted EBITDA of $0.3 million in 2Q15 compared $1.1 million in the year ago quarter as the increase in SG&A expense more than offset the increase in gross profit. Income from operations in 2Q15 was $0.1 million compared $0.9 million in 2Q14.

Afek
Genie Energy's Afek subsidiary is characterizing a conventional oil and gas resource in Northern Israel. Afek has completed two wells in its multi-well exploratory drilling program in Northern Israel, and is continuing to analyze core samples and other data collected to date. Afek expects to spud its third well (Ness 6) during 3Q15, and to spud at least one additional well during the calendar year. The analysis to date suggests that the presence of several target zones containing hydrocarbons within the formation. The volume of the resources and the extent they may be extractable cannot yet be determined. As such, the resources do not yet constitute proved, probable or possible reserves.

In 2Q15, Afek capitalized $6.7 million of drilling expenses and recorded $1.3 million of exploration expense. Afek's exploration expense was $1.0 million in 2Q14 and $1.6 million in 1Q15.

Genie Oil and Gas (GOGAS)
The GOGAS segment is comprised of oil shale projects in Mongolia and Israel's Shfela Basin, as well as of Genie Energy's minority stake in a joint venture to develop oil shale in Colorado's Piceance Basin. The oil shale exploration project in the Shfela is not active at present, and GOGAS is scaling back its operations in Mongolia to sharpen the company's focus on the operations at Afek, where there is, potentially, a shorter-term path to commercial operations.

The GOGAS segment's financial results no longer consolidate its Afek subsidiary, which is now a separate reporting segment and has been removed from the GOGAS presentation for all periods presented.

The GOGAS segment's loss from operations in 2Q15 was $790 thousand compared to $1.7 million in 2Q14.

Corporate
Genie Energy's corporate G&A expense in 2Q15 decreased compared to the year ago quarter to $2.2 million in 2Q15, including $1.3 million in non-cash compensation expense related primarily to stock-based compensation arrangements with Howard Jonas, Genie Energy's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. In 2Q14, corporate G&A expense was $2.5 million including $1.4 million in non-cash compensation.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measure for the Second Quarter 2015

In addition to disclosing financial results that are determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP), Genie Energy also disclosed for the second quarter of 2015, as well as for comparable periods, Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP measure. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Genie Energy's measure of Adjusted EBITDA consists of gross profit less selling, general and administrative expense, research and development expense, and exploration expense, plus depreciation and stock-based compensation (which are included in selling, general and administrative expense). Another way of calculating Adjusted EBITDA is to start with income (loss) from operations and add depreciation and stock-based compensation.

Management believes that Genie Energy's Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses that may not be indicative of Genie Energy's or the relevant segment's core operating results. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA, among other measures, as a relevant indicator of core operational strengths in its financial and operational decision making. In addition, management uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate operating performance in relation to Genie Energy's competitors. Disclosure of this financial measure may be useful to investors in evaluating performance and allows for greater transparency to the underlying supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. In addition, Genie Energy has historically reported Adjusted EBITDA and believes it is commonly used by readers of financial information in assessing performance, therefore the inclusion of comparative numbers provides consistency in financial reporting at this time.

Management refers to Adjusted EBITDA, as well as the GAAP measures gross profit, income (loss) from operations and net income (loss), on a segment and/or consolidated level to facilitate internal and external comparisons to the segments' and Genie Energy's historical operating results, in making operating decisions, for budget and planning purposes, and to form the basis upon which management is compensated.

Although depreciation is considered an operating cost under GAAP, it primarily represents the non-cash current period allocation of costs associated with long-lived assets acquired or constructed in prior periods. While Genie Energy's oil and gas exploration business may be capital intensive in the future, Genie Energy does not expect to incur significant depreciation or depletion expense for the foreseeable future. Genie Energy's operating results exclusive of depreciation is therefore a useful indicator of its current performance.

Stock-based compensation recognized by Genie Energy and other companies may not be comparable because of the various valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of types of awards that are permitted under GAAP. Stock-based compensation is excluded from Genie Energy's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA because management believes this allows investors to make more meaningful comparisons of the operating results of Genie Energy's core business with the results of other companies. However, stock-based compensation will continue to be a significant expense for Genie Energy for the foreseeable future and an important part of employees' compensation that impacts their performance.

Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, gross profit, income (loss) from operations, cash flow from operating activities, net income (loss), basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share or other measures of liquidity and financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, Genie Energy's measurements of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Following is the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, which is income (loss) from operations for Genie Energy's reportable segments and net income (loss) for Genie Energy on a consolidated basis.
