Magnum Hunter Reports Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter of 2011 and Fiscal Year End 2011

Record EBITDAX and Cash Flow Reported; 2011 Production Increased 324% From 2010; 2011 Revenues Increased 295% From 2010; 4th Quarter Avg. Daily Production Increased 73% from 3rd Quarter; Year-End 2012 Production Exit Rate Guidance Increased to 16,000 BOEPD

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 29, 2012) - Magnum Hunter Resources Corporation (NYSE: MHR) (NYSE Amex: MHR-PrC) (NYSE Amex: MHR-PrD) ("Magnum Hunter" or the "Company") announced today financial results for the fourth quarter of 2011 and fiscal year end 2011.

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended December 31, 2011

Magnum Hunter reported an increase in total revenues of 404% to $49.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011 compared to $9.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2010. The increase in revenues was driven principally by the significant increase in production derived from both the NuLoch and NGAS acquisitions completed in the second quarter of 2011; and, the subsequent success achieved in the Company's drilling programs in its three unconventional resource plays.

Operating margins also improved substantially as lease operating expenses per barrel of oil equivalent ("Boe") declined from $20.15 per Boe to $11.71 per Boe. This operating improvement is a result of the addition of new production, divestitures of high lifting cost conventional properties, and tighter controls on field operating expenses. Recurring cash general and administrative costs per Boe also declined from $38.63 to $10.04 per Boe. The Company anticipates this trend of improving operating statistics to continue into fiscal year 2012 as production continues to expand in its unconventional resource plays while at the same time the Company's overhead requires minimal expansion.

The Company reported a net loss of $60.9 million or ($0.46) per basic and diluted common shares outstanding for the three months ended December 31, 2011, compared to a net loss of $1.9 million, or ($0.03) per basic and diluted common shares outstanding for the three months ended December 31, 2010. The Company's net loss per share for the three months ended December 31, 2011, was ($0.05) per basic and diluted common shares outstanding when adjusted for non-cash and non-recurring expenses summarized as follows: (i) impairment of proved oil gas properties of $22.9 million ($0.17 per share); (ii) unrealized loss on derivatives of $21.4 million ($0.16 per share); (iii) non-cash compensation expense of $6.0 million ($0.05 per share); and (iv) acquisition-related and other non-cash and non-recurring expenses of $3.6 million ($0.03 per share). The company's impairment charge is specifically related to the write-down of natural gas properties of NGAS located in Kentucky. The Company employs successful efforts reserve method of accounting which requires that reserve values be calculated on a field-by-field basis utilizing current commodity pricing. An impairment was recorded when the estimated fair value of a field was less than the net capitalized cost of the field at December 31, 2011. Fair value was determined by calculating the present value of future cash flows using NYMEX prices in effect during February 2012.

For the three months ended December 31, 2011, Magnum Hunter's 'Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Income Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization' ("Adjusted EBITDA") was $21.2 million or $0.16 per basic and diluted common shares outstanding as compared to $0.9 million or $0.01 per basic and diluted common shares outstanding for the three months ended December 31, 2010, representing an increase of 2,281%.

Financial Results for Fiscal Year End 2011

Magnum Hunter reported an increase in revenues of 295% to $129.2 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 compared to $32.7 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010. This increase in revenues was driven principally by the significant increase in production from the Company's acquisitions completed in 2011 and the success of its drilling programs in its three unconventional resource plays. Operating margins also improved substantially as lease operating expenses per Boe declined from $21.90 per Boe to $13.46 per Boe; and recurring cash general and administrative costs per Boe also declined significantly from $34.43 per Boe to $13.36 per Boe.

The Company reported a net loss of $90.7 million or ($0.80) per basic and diluted common shares outstanding for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011, compared to a net loss of $22.3 million, or ($0.25) per basic and diluted common shares outstanding during the twelve months ended December 31, 2010. The Company's net loss for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 would have been ($0.19) per basic and diluted common shares outstanding when adjusted for non-cash and non-recurring expenses summarized as follows: (i) non-cash compensation expense of $25.4 million ($0.22 per share); (ii) impairment of proved oil gas properties of $22.9 million ($0.20 per share); (iii) acquisition-related and other non-cash and non-recurring expenses of $16.9 million ($0.15 per share); and (iv) unrealized loss on derivatives of $4.2 million ($0.04 per share).

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2011, Magnum Hunter's Adjusted EBITDA was $50.4 million or $0.45 per basic and diluted common shares outstanding as compared to $4.2 million or $0.07 per basic and diluted common shares outstanding for the prior fiscal year ended December 31, 2010, representing a 1,094% increase.

Production Results for 2011 and Outlook for 2012

Average daily production increased 547% for the three months ended December 31, 2011 to 9,124 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("Boepd") (37% oil/liquids) as compared to the 1,410 Boepd reported for the three months ended December 31, 2010. The daily production rate in the fourth quarter of 2011 represents a 73% increase over the production rate of 5,270 Boepd reported during the third quarter of 2011, demonstrating success from the Company's organic drilling programs in each of its operating regions. The Company had a year-end 2011 exit rate in excess of 12,500 Boepd. The Company averaged approximately 13,000 Boepd for the month of January 2012 and is currently producing above 13,000 Boepd. The Company expects to exit 2012 in excess of 16,000 Boepd, with approximately 55% of the production mix being oil/liquids.

Average daily production for fiscal year 2011 was 5,510 Boepd (43% oil/liquids) which represents a 324% increase over the 1,301 Boepd reported for fiscal year 2010. This significant production increase is due primarily to the drilling and completion success achieved with new wells in each of the Company's operating regions.

Proved Reserves Overview

The Company's total proved reserves increased by 31.5 million Boe or 235% to 44.9 million Boe (48% crude oil and ngls; 51% proved developed producing) as of December 31, 2011 as compared to 13.4 million Boe (51% crude oil & ngls; 44% proved developed producing) at December 31, 2010. The increase in total proved reserves is attributable to the NGAS and NuLoch acquisitions and new wells completed in the Company's three unconventional resource plays.

Capital Expenditures and Liquidity

Magnum Hunter's fiscal year 2011 total capital expenditures, excluding acquisitions, were $268 million. The Company's preliminary 2012 capital expenditure budget is $200 million including $150 million in its upstream business and $50 million for its midstream business. The Company intends to direct a much larger percentage of capital expenditures in 2012 to oil and liquids projects and will delay drilling and completion on the majority of its high liquid natural gas projects until later in the year when the MarkWest Mobley liquids complex becomes operational. As a result, the Company's budget is substantially all focused on oil development in the first half of the year. We will continue to evaluate further reallocation of our capital budget as we move towards the second half of the year depending on commodity price levels and the progress and timing of the completion of the MarkWest Mobley liquids complex.

As a result of the Company's internally generated cash flows, issuance of preferred stock and availability under its expanded Credit Facilities, Magnum Hunter has sufficient resources to fund its preliminary capital expenditure budget for 2012. Additionally, all of our budgeted expenditures for our midstream segment are expected to be funded through separate financing with the Eureka Hunter Credit Facility. As of February 28, 2012 the Company had total liquidity of approximately $100 million under its combined credit facilities. In addition, the Company has resumed the sales of its Series D Preferred Stock (non-convertible) in 2012 with approximately $35 million sold year-to-date. We expect to continue issuing Series D preferred throughout 2012 with approximately $150 million remaining and available to be sold in the future under our existing ATM program. In addition, the Company also expects to review opportunities now available in the high yield markets this year, and is actively working on monetizing a minority interest in its Eureka Pipeline system. As a result of these efforts, the Company anticipates having additional liquidity to fund 2012 capital expenditures and any future budget expansions based upon continued successful drilling results.

Management Comments

Mr. Gary C. Evans, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Magnum Hunter Resources, commented, "Calendar year 2011 was a transitional period for Magnum Hunter. During the first half of the year, we successfully closed on a number of acquisitions that provided the foundation from which we are growing our daily production and proved reserves today. During the second half of the year, we completed the integration of approximately $590 million in transactions and began our 'harvesting' mode of exploiting the tremendous leasehold acreage positions covering these unconventional resource plays. Our year-end production success which is continuing into the first quarter of 2012, has given us the confidence to increase our projected exit rate on daily production a third time to 16,000 Boe per day by year-end. At the same time, we continue reducing our cost structure both in the field and at our corporate offices which will enable us to report much wider margins of cash flow available for reinvestment. Because we are in control of approximately 75% of our core properties as an operator, we have the flexibility to move our capital program around and reallocate among our two oil plays (Bakken and Eagle Ford) while the energy industry deals with an unprecedented glut of natural gas. This will ensure that our returns on capital deployed in 2012 remain at superior levels. Our management team continues to make operating improvements in the field which is resulting in production levels that exceed our prior expectations."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations

Note: Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial accounting measure and as such, a full reconciliation of the above exhibited Adjusted EBITDA numbers to the Company's reported net income for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 using standardized GAAP financial accounting methodology and as reported to and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission can be found and is exhibited in the footnotes of this press release below. Also, a reconciliation of the recurring loss per common share to the reported loss per common share for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011, and a reconciliation to recurring cash G&A for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 are provided in the footnotes of this press release below.
