Organization and Nature of Operations Pioneer Natural Resources Company (the"Company") is a Delaware corporation whose common stock is listed and traded on the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Company was formed by the merger of Parker & Parsley Petroleum Company ("Parker & Parsley") and MESA Inc. ("Mesa") on August 7, 1997. The Company was significantly expanded by the subsequent acquisition of the Canadian and Argentine oil and gas business of Chauvco Resources Ltd ("Chauvco"), a publicly traded independent oil and gas company based in Calgary, Canada on December 18, 1997. The Company is an oil and gas exploration and production company with ownership interests in oil and gas properties located principally in the MidContinent, Southwestern and onshore and offshore Gulf Coast regions of the United States, and in Canada and Argentina. In accordance with the provisions of Accounting Principles Board No. 16, "Business Combinations", both the merger with Mesa and the acquisition of Chauvco have been accounted for as purchases by the Company (formerly Parker & Parsley). As a result, the historical financial statements for the Company are those of Parker & Parsley, and the Company's financial statements present the addition of Mesa's and Chauvco's assets and liabilities as an acquisition by the Company in August and December 1997, respectively. Specifically, the accompanying Consolidated Statements of Operations and Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows include the financial results of Mesa and Chauvco for the three months ended March 31, 2022 but only include the financial results of Parker & Parsley for the three months ended March 31, 1997. NOTE B. Basis of Presentation In the opinion of management, the unaudited consolidated financial statements of the Company as of March 31, 2022 and for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 1997 include all adjustments and accruals, consisting only of normal recurring accrual adjustments, which are necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods. These interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year. Certain amounts in the prior period financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted in this Form 10-Q pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. These consolidated financial statements should be read in connection with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's 1997 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Effective January 1, 1998, the Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 130 "Reporting Comprehensive Income" ("SFAS 130") which establishes standards for reporting and display of comprehensive income and its components in a full set of general purpose financial statements. Comprehensive income includes net income and other comprehensive income, which includes, but is not limited to, unrealized gains for marketable securities and future contracts, foreign currency translation adjustments and minimum pension liability adjustments. The accompanying consolidated financial statements for the Company reflect other comprehensive income consisting of foreign currency translation adjustments. NOTE C. Senior Note Issuances During January 1998, the Company completed the issuance of the following two series of senior notes for total net proceeds of $593 million. The proceeds were used primarily to repay the Company's bank indebtedness. 6.5% senior notes due 2008. $350 million aggregate principal amount 6.5% senior notes dated January 13, 1998, due January 15, 2008. Interest on the 6.5% senior notes is payable semi-annually on January 15 and July 15 of each year, commencing July 15, 1998. 8 7.2% senior notes due 2028. $250 million aggregate principal amount 7.2% senior notes dated January 13, 1998, due July 15, 2028. Interest on the 7.2% senior notes is payable semi-annually on January 15 and July 15 of each year, commencing July 15, 1998. Both senior note issuances are governed by an Indenture between the Company and The Bank of New York dated January 13, 1998. Both senior note issuances are general unsecured obligations of the Company ranking equally in right of payment with all other senior unsecured indebtedness of the Company and are senior in right of payment to all existing and future subordinated indebtedness of the Company. In addition, the Company is a holding company that conducts all its operations through subsidiaries, and the senior notes are structurally subordinated to all obligations of its subsidiaries. Pioneer Natural Resources USA, Inc. ("Pioneer USA"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, has fully and unconditionally guaranteed both senior note issuances. NOTE D. Commitments and Contingencies Legal Actions. The Company is party to various legal actions incidental to its business, including, but not limited to, the proceedings described below. The majority of these lawsuits primarily involve claims for damages arising from oil and gas leases and ownership interest disputes. The Company believes that the ultimate disposition of these legal actions will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's consolidated financial position, liquidity, capital resources or future results of operations. The Company will continue to evaluate its litigation matters on a quarter-by-quarter basis and will adjust its litigation reserve as appropriate to reflect the then current status of its litigation. The Company believes that the costs for compliance with environmental laws and regulations have not and will not have a material effect on the Company's financial position or results of operations. Masterson In February 1992, the current lessors of an oil and gas lease (the "Gas Lease") dated April 30, 1955, between R.B. Masterson et al., as lessor, and Colorado Interstate Gas Company ("CIG"), as lessee, sued CIG in Federal District Court in Amarillo, Texas, claiming that CIG had underpaid royalties due under the Gas Lease. Under the agreements with CIG, the Company, as successor to Mesa, has an entitlement to gas produced from the Gas Lease. In August 1992, CIG filed a third-party complaint against the Company for any such royalty underpayment which may be allocable to the Company. Plaintiffs alleged that the underpayment was the result of CIG's use of an improper gas sales price upon which to calculate royalties and that the proper price should have been determined pursuant to a "favored-nations" clause in a July 1, 1967, amendment to the Gas Lease. The plaintiffs also sought a declaration by the court as to the proper price to be used for calculating future royalties. The plaintiffs alleged royalty underpayments of approximately $500 million (including interest at 10%) covering the period from July 1, 1967, to the present. In March 1995, the court made certain pretrial rulings that eliminated approximately $400 million of the plaintiff's claims (which related to periods prior to October 1, 2021), but which also reduced a number of the Company's defenses. The Company and CIG filed stipulations with the court whereby the Company would have been liable for between 50% and 60%, depending on the time period covered, of an adverse judgment against CIG or post-February 1988 underpayments of royalties. On March 22, 1995, a jury trial began and on May 4, 1995, the jury returned its verdict. Among its findings, the jury determined that CIG had underpaid royalties for the period after September 30, 1989, in the amount of approximately $140,000. Although the plaintiffs argued that the "favored-nations" clause entitled them to be paid for all of their gas at the highest price voluntarily paid by CIG to any other lessor, the jury determined that the plaintiffs were estopped from claiming that the "favored-nations" clause provides for other than a pricing-scheme to pricing-scheme comparison. In light of this determination, and the plaintiff's stipulation that a pricing-scheme to pricing-scheme comparison would not result in any "trigger prices" or damages, defendants asked the court for a judgment that plaintiffs take nothing. The court, on June 7, 1995, entered final judgment that plaintiffs recover no monetary damages. The plaintiffs filed a motion for new trial on June 22, 1995. The court, on July 18, 1997, denied plaintiffs' motion. The plaintiffs have appealed to the Fifth Circuit. 9 On June 7, 1996, the plaintiffs filed a separate suit against CIG and the Company in state court in Amarillo, Texas, similarly claiming underpayment of royalties under the "favored-nations" clause, but based upon the above-described pricing-scheme to pricing-scheme comparison on a well-by-well monthly basis. The plaintiffs also claim underpayment of royalties since June 7, 1995, under the "favored-nations" clause based upon either the pricing-scheme to pricing-scheme method or their previously alleged higher price method. The Company believes it has several defenses to this action and intends to contest it vigorously. The Company has not yet determined the amount of damages, if any, that would be payable if such action was determined adversely to the Company. The federal court in the above-referenced first suit issued an order on July 29, 1996, which stayed the state suit pending the plaintiffs' resolution of the first suit. Based on the jury verdict and final judgment, the Company does not currently expect the ultimate resolution of either of these lawsuits to have a material adverse effect on its financial position or results of operations. Kansas Ad Valorem Tax The Natural Gas Policy Act of 1978 ("NGPA") allows a "severance, production or similar" tax to be included as an add-on, over and above the maximum lawful price for natural gas. Based on a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC") ruling that Kansas ad valorem tax was such a tax, Mesa collected the Kansas ad valorem tax in addition to the otherwise maximum lawful price. The FERC's ruling was appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ("D.C. Circuit"), which held in June 1988 that the FERC failed to provide a reasoned basis for its findings and remanded the case to the FERC for further consideration. On December 1, 1993, the FERC issued an order reversing its prior ruling, but limiting the effect of its decision to Kansas ad valorem taxes for sales made on or after June 28, 1988. The FERC clarified the effective date of its decision by an order dated May 18, 1994. The order clarified that the effective date applies to tax bills rendered after June 28, 1988, not sales made on or after that date. Numerous parties filed appeals on the FERC's action in the D.C. Circuit. Various natural gas producers challenged the FERC's orders on two grounds: (1) that the Kansas ad valorem tax, properly understood, does qualify for reimbursement under the NGPA; and (2) the FERC's ruling should, in any event, have been applied prospectively. Other parties challenged the FERC's orders on the grounds that the FERC's ruling should have been applied retroactively to December 1, 1978, the date of the enactment of the NGPA and producers should have been required to pay refunds accordingly. The D.C. Circuit issued its decision on August 2, 1996, which holds that producers must make refunds of all Kansas ad valorem tax collected with respect to production since October 4, 2021 as opposed to June 28, 1988. Petitions for rehearing were denied on November 6, 1996. Various natural gas producers subsequently filed a petition for writ of certiori with the United States Supreme Court seeking to limit the scope of the potential refunds to tax bills rendered on or after June 28, 2022 (the effective date originally selected by the FERC). Williams Natural Gas Company filed a cross-petition for certiori seeking to impose refund liability back to December 1, 1978. Both petitions were denied on May 12, 1997. The Company and other producers filed petitions for adjustment with the FERC on June 24, 1997. The Company is seeking waiver or set-off from FERC with respect to that portion of the refund associated with (i) non-recoupable royalties, (ii) non-recoupable Kansas property taxes based, in part, upon the higher prices collected, and (iii) interest for all periods. On September 10, 1997, FERC denied this request, and on October 10, 1997, the Company and other producers filed a request for rehearing. Pipelines were given until November 10, 1997 to file claims on refunds sought from producers and refunds totaling approximately $30 million were made against the Company. Although the Company is unable at this time to predict the final outcome of this matter or the amount, if any, that will ultimately be refunded, the Company has set aside approximately $30 million in an escrow account and has a $28.8 million provision for such litigation recorded in the accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheet as of March 31, 1998. NOTE E. Commodity Hedge Derivatives The Company utilizes various commodity swap and option contracts to (i) reduce the effect of the volatility of price changes on the commodities the 10 Company produces and sells, (ii) support the Company's annual capital budgeting and expenditure plans and (iii) lock in prices to protect the economics related to certain capital projects. Crude oil. All material purchase contracts governing the Company's oil production are tied directly or indirectly to NYMEX prices. The following table sets forth the Company's outstanding oil hedge contracts as of March 31, 1998. First Second Third Fourth Yearly Quarter Quarter Quarter Quarter Average ------- ------------ ------------ ------------ ------------ Daily oil production: 1998 - Swap Contracts Volume (Bbl) - 11,581 8,900 8,900 9,787 Price per Bbl $ - $ 19.36 $ 19.75 $ 19.74 $ 19.59 1998 - Collar Options Volume (Bbl) - 2,000 2,000 2,000 2,000 Price per Bbl $ - $18.40-21.50 $18.40-21.50 $18.40-21.50 $18.40-21.50 1998 - Put Options Volume (Bbl) - 2,000 2,000 2,000 2,000 Price per Bbl $ - $ 18.40 $ 18.40 $ 18.40 $ 18.40 1999 - Swap Contracts Volume (Bbl) 1,000 1,000 1,000 1,000 1,000 Price per Bbl $ 17.95 $ 17.95 $ 17.95 $ 17.95 $ 17.95
The Company reports average oil prices per Bbl including the effects of oil quality, gathering and transportation costs and the net effect of the oil hedges. The following table sets forth the Company's oil prices, both realized and reported, and net effects of settlements of oil price hedges to revenue: Three months ended March 31, -------------------- 1998 1997 ------- -------- Average price reported per Bbl $ 13.97 $ 19.99 Average price realized per Bbl $ 13.16 $ 21.86 Addition (reduction) to revenue (in millions) $ 4.6 $ (5.4) Natural Gas. The Company employs a policy of hedging gas production based on the index price upon which the gas is actually sold in order to mitigate the basis risk between NYMEX prices and actual index prices. The following table sets forth the Company's outstanding gas hedge contracts as of March 31, 1998. Prices included herein represent the Company's weighted average index price per MMBtu and, as an additional point of reference, the weighted average price for the portion of the Company's gas which is hedged based on NYMEX. First Second Third Fourth Yearly Quarter Quarter Quarter Quarter Average ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- --------- Daily gas production: 1998 - Swap Contracts Volume (Mcf) - 97,643 85,000 51,848 78,093 Index price per MMBtu $ - $ 2.21 $ 2.19 $ 2.17 $ 2.20 NYMEX price per MMBtu $ - $ 2.29 $ 2.26 $ 2.30 $ 2.28 1998 - Put Options Volume (Mcf) - 277,555 297,500 254,402 276,482 Index price per MMBtu $ - $ 1.91 $ 1.90 $ 1.91 $ 1.91 1999 - Swap Contracts Volume (Mcf) 42,500 64,945 60,000 38,451 51,486 Index price per MMBtu $ 2.14 $ 2.15 $ 2.17 $ 2.23 $ 2.17 NYMEX price per MMBtu $ 2.28 $ 2.29 $ 2.29 $ 2.29 $ 2.29 1999 - Collar Contracts Volume (Mcf) 52,500 52,500 52,500 52,500 52,500 Index price per MMBtu $1.83-2.72 $1.83-2.72 $1.83-2.72 $1.83-2.72 $1.83-2.72
11 The Company reports average gas prices per Mcf including the effects of Btu content, gathering and transportation costs, gas processing and shrinkage and the net effect of the gas hedges. The following table sets forth the Company's gas prices, both realized and reported, and net effects of settlements of gas price hedges to revenue: Three months ended March 31, ------------------- 1998 1997 ------- ------- Average price reported per Mcf $ 2.07 $ 2.47 Average price realized per Mcf $ 1.94 $ 2.83 Addition/(reduction) to revenue (in millions) $ 5.5 $ (6.6) NOTE F. BTU Swap Agreements During 1996, Mesa entered into BTU swap agreements covering 13,036 MMBTU per day from January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2004. Under the terms of these agreements, the Company will receive a premium of $.52 per MMBTU over market natural gas prices from January 1, 2022 through December 31, 1998. Following this two-year period, the Company will receive 10% of the NYMEX oil price for the volumes covered for a six-year period beginning January 1, 2022 and ending December 31, 2004. As these derivative contracts do not qualify as hedges, other expenses in the accompanying Consolidated Statement of Operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022 include a $6.2 million noncash pre-tax mark-to-market adjustment to the carrying value of the BTU swap agreements. These contracts will continue to be marked-to-market at the end of each reporting period during their respective lives and the effects on the Company's results of operations in future periods could be significant. NOTE G. Reorganization In February 1998, the Company announced its plans to sell certain nonstrategic fields for estimated proceeds of $375 to $550 million during the latter part of 1998. The proceeds will be used to reduce the Company's outstanding indebtedness and to fund the Company's capital expenditures program. Coincidentally with the property divestiture program, the Company announced its intentions to reorganize its operations by combining its six domestic operating regions into three geographic regions: the Permian Basin region, the MidContinent region and the onshore and offshore Gulf Coast region. In addition, most of the Company's administrative services are being relocated from Midland, Texas to Dallas, Texas. Shortly after the announcement, the Company formally notified the employees affected by the reorganization whether they were to be severed or relocated. During the three months ended March 31, 1998, the Company has recorded severance, relocation, lease termination and other costs of approximately $17.2 million relating to this reorganization. The Company anticipates that it will incur total nonrecurring expenditures of approximately $20 million during 1998 as a result of this reorganization. The consummation of the Company's 1998 divestiture plans is entirely dependent on finding one or more willing buyers who have the financial wherewithal to complete such a purchase. Until such a buyer is found, the Company may reevaluate its portfolio of properties and at any time may adjust its plans concerning divestitures. As a result, there can be no assurance that the divestiture of any or all of these properties will be completed or that the estimated proceeds will be realized. NOTE H. Pioneer USA Pioneer USA is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company that has fully and unconditionally guaranteed certain debt securities of the Company (see Note C above). The Company has not prepared financial statements and related disclosures for Pioneer USA under separate cover because management of the Company has determined that such information is not material to investors. In accordance with practices accepted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), the Company has prepared Consolidating Financial Statements in order to quantify the assets of Pioneer USA as a subsidiary guarantor. The following Consolidating Balance Sheet, Consolidating Statement of Operations and Consolidating Statement of Cash Flows present financial information for Pioneer Natural Resources Company as the Parent on a stand-alone basis (carrying any investments in subsidiaries under the equity method), financial information for Pioneer USA on a stand-alone basis (carrying any investment in non-guarantor subsidiaries under the equity method), financial information for the 12 non-guarantor subsidiaries of the Company on a consolidated basis, the consolidation and elimination entries necessary to arrive at the information for the Company on a consolidated basis, and the financial information for the Company on a consolidated basis.

17 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations(1) The Formation of Pioneer Pioneer Natural Resources Company (the"Company") is a Delaware corporation whose common stock is listed and traded on the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Company was formed by the merger of Parker & Parsley Petroleum Company ("Parker & Parsley") and MESA Inc. ("Mesa") on August 7, 1997. The Company was significantly expanded by the subsequent acquisition of the Canadian and Argentine oil and gas business of Chauvco Resources Ltd ("Chauvco"), a publicly traded independent oil and gas company based in Calgary, Canada on December 18, 1997. The Company is an oil and gas exploration and production company with ownership interests in oil and gas properties located principally in the MidContinent, Southwestern and onshore and offshore Gulf Coast regions of the United States, and in Canada and Argentina. In accordance with the provisions of Accounting Principles Board No. 16, "Business Combinations", both the merger with Mesa and the acquisition of Chauvco have been accounted for as purchases by the Company (formerly Parker & Parsley). As a result, the historical financial statements for the Company are those of Parker & Parsley, and the Company's financial statements present the addition of Mesa's and Chauvco's assets and liabilities as an acquisition by the Company in August and December 1997, respectively. Specifically, the accompanying Consolidated Statements of Operations and Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows include the financial results of Mesa and Chauvco for the three months ended March 31, 2022 but only include the financial results of Parker & Parsley for the three months ended March 31, 1997. Financial Performance The Company reported a net loss of $26.8 million ($.27 per share) for the three months ended March 31, 1998, as compared to net income of $18.6 million ($.53 per share) for the same period in 1997. The three month period ended March 31, 1998 was negatively impacted by a decline in the average price received for oil and gas (see "Results of Operations" below) and reorganization costs totaling $17.2 million (see "1998 Outlook" below). The Company's financial performance during 1998 was positively affected by increases in oil and gas production and decreases in production costs per BOE due to ongoing cost reduction efforts. Net cash provided by operating activities decreased to $69.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 1998, as compared to the net cash provided by operating activities of $73.5 million for the same period in 1997. These decreases are primarily attributable to decreased commodity prices and increases in interest expense, general and administrative expenses and reorganization costs, offset, to some extent, by cash flows generated by the acquired oil and gas properties from Mesa and Chauvco. The Company strives to maintain its outstanding indebtedness at a moderate level in order to provide sufficient financial flexibility to fund future opportunities. The Company's total book capitalization at March 31, 2022 was $3.6 billion, consisting of total long-term debt of $2.1 billion and stockholders' equity of $1.5 billion. Debt as a percentage of total book capitalization was 58% at March 31, 1998, as compared to 56% at December 31, 1997. Drilling Results During the first quarter of 1998, the Company participated in the completion of 236 gross exploration and development wells, including 144 in the Permian Basin region, 23 in the Gulf Coast region, 12 in the MidContinent region, 27 in Argentina and 30 in Canada. Of these wells, 116 were in progress at December 31, 1997. Of the total wells completed during the three months ended March 31, 1998, 227 were completed successfully which resulted in a 96% success rate. In addition to the wells completed in the first quarter of 1998, the Company had 131 wells in progress at March 31, 1998. 18 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY In the Dorsal area of the Neuquen Basin in Argentina where the Company's working interest approximates 100%, the Company has drilled 30 wells to date during 1998. Of these, 22 of the 25 successful wells are on production at a combined daily rate of 3,300 BOEs, and the Company anticipates that gas sales will increase by 7 MMcf per day in early June when new gathering facilities are completed. An additional 30 wells are planned for the remainder of 1998. The Company has concluded its winter-access program in the Chinchaga gas field in Northeast British Columbia, Canada with the drilling of 19 development wells and six delineation wells and installation of 50 MMcf per day gas processing facility and gathering system. The gas processing facility began production on April 15, 1998, with a total of 30 wells tied into the production system. Production is anticipated to increase by 18 MMcf per day and 451 barrels of oil per day (condensate and NGL barrels per day) to 25 MMcf per day and 632 barrels of oil per day, net to the Company's interest. In the 100% owned Timbalier Bay field in South Louisiana, four new wells and one recompletion resulted in new production of 1,400 barrels of oil per day and 1.2 MMcf of gas per day. The Company continues to evaluate this large oil field with 3-D seismic data to unlock additional development and large-scale exploration opportunities. In the Lopeno field in South Texas, the Company completed six new wells increasing production more than 30 MMcf of gas per day. Up to ten additional development wells are planned in this field during the remainder of 1998. The Company also completed two infill development wells in the Bear Creek field, a water flood unit in Dunn County, North Dakota. The two new wells are producing at a combined rate of over 1,480 barrels of oil per day and 740 Mcf of gas per day, net to the Company's interest. The field was discovered in 1982 and water flooding commenced in 1992. 1998 Outlook In February 1998, the Company announced plans to accelerate its portfolio management initiatives through a divestiture program focused on improving operating efficiency and profitability. The Company plans to sell certain nonstrategic fields for estimated proceeds of $375 to $550 million during the latter part of 1998. The proceeds will be used to reduce the Company's outstanding indebtedness and to fund the Company's capital expenditures program. This will leave the Company with approximately 25 domestic fields, which represent its core producing assets and complementary development and exploration opportunities. The consummation of the Company's 1998 divestiture plans is entirely dependent on finding one or more willing buyers who have the financial wherewithal to complete such a purchase. Until such a buyer is found, the Company may reevaluate its portfolio of properties and at any time may adjust its plans concerning divestitures. As a result, there can be no assurance that the divestiture of any or all of these properties will be completed or that the estimated proceeds will be realized. Coincidentally with the property divestiture program, the Company has announced its intentions to reorganize its operations to take advantage of the economies of scale provided by the concentration of reserves in a small number of fields. The Company has combined its six domestic regions into three geographic regions: the Permian Basin region, the MidContinent region and the onshore and offshore Gulf Coast region. In addition, most of the Company's administrative services are being relocated from Midland, Texas to Dallas, Texas Texas. Shortly after the announcement, the Company formally notified the employees affected by the reorganization whether they were to be severed or relocated. During the three months ended March 31, 1998, the Company has recorded severance, relocation, lease termination and other costs of approximately $17.2 million relating to this reorganization. The Company anticipates that it will incur total nonrecurring expenditures of approximately $20 million during 1998 as a result of this reorganization. During 1998, the Company will continue its emphasis on core development, exploration and production activities, with a primary focus on the exploitation of its current portfolio of drilling locations. This portfolio was significantly 19 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY enhanced and expanded by the major acquisitions completed in 1997. In addition, the 1996 and 1997 drilling programs have added a large number of new locations to which proved reserves have been assigned. The Company believes that its current portfolio of undeveloped prospects provides attractive development and exploration opportunities for at least the next three to five years. The Company's 1998 capital expenditure budget has been decreased to $440 million from its previous budget of $500 million. The Company budgets its capital expenditures based on projected internally-generated cash flows and routinely adjusts the level of its capital expenditures in response to anticipated changes in cash flows. The decrease in the Company's 1998 capital expenditure budget is a direct result of the decrease in operating cash flows due to declines in commodity prices. Of the total capital expenditure budget of $440 million, the Company has allocated $265 million to exploitation activities, $115 million to exploration activities and $60 million to oil and gas property acquisitions. The Company anticipates that the $440 million budget will be spent geographically as follows: $85 million in the Permian Basin, $145 million in the onshore and offshore Gulf Coast, $40 million in the MidContinent, $70 million in Canada, $75 million in Argentina and $25 million in Africa and other international areas. During most of 1996 and 1997, the Company benefitted from higher oil prices as compared to previous years. However, during the fourth quarter of 1997, oil prices began a downward trend that has continued into May 1998. A continuation of the oil price environment experienced thus far in 1998 will have an adverse effect on the Company's revenues and operating cash flow, and may result in further downward adjustments to the Company's current 1998 capital budget of $440 million. Also, a continuing decline in oil prices could result in additional decreases in the carrying value of the Company's oil and gas properties. The forward looking statements in these projections, including statements relating to capital budget, production, cash flows and drilling activities, are based upon a number of assumptions, including among others, limited changes in oil and gas prices and the accuracy of reserve engineering studies. These assumptions may prove not to have been accurate. Information Systems for the Year 2000. The Company will be required to modify its information systems in order to accurately process data referencing the year 2000. Because of the importance of occurrence dates in the oil and gas industry, the consequences of not pursuing these modifications could be very significant to the Company's ability to manage and report operating activities. The Company has contracted with a third party to perform the software programming changes necessary to correct any existing deficiencies. The Company currently believes the total cost to make the necessary software program modifications will be approximately $3 million. Such programming changes are anticipated to be completed and tested by March 1, 1999. On a daily basis, the Company exchanges date-specific information with a multitude of suppliers and purchasers. If these other parties do not properly address the year 2000 in their data exchange processes, the effect to the Company could be significant. At this time, the extent of the potential impact to the Company cannot be determined. 20 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY Results of Operations Oil and Gas Production.

Revenues from oil and gas operations totaled $197.4 million in the first quarter of 1998 compared to $103.8 million in the first quarter of 1997, representing an increase of 90%. The increase is primarily attributable to increases in oil and gas production, offset by declines in commodity prices. The majority of the increased production is a direct result of the oil and gas properties acquired from Mesa and Chauvco. Parker & Parsley historically accounted for processed natural gas production as wellhead production on a wet gas basis while Mesa accounted for processed natural gas production in two components: natural gas liquids and dry residue gas. The combined entities own three major gas processing facilities, and the majority of the gas processed by these facilities is owned by the Company and produced by Company-operated properties. Consequently, the Company now accounts for natural gas production as processed natural gas liquids and dry residue gas, and separate product volumes will not be comparable for periods prior to September 30, 1997. Also, prices for gas products will not be comparable as the price per mcf for natural gas for the three months ended March 31, 1998 is the price received for dry residue gas and the price per mcf for natural gas for the three months ended March 31, 2022 is a price for natural gas liquids combined with dry residue gas. On a BOE basis, production increased by 158% for the three months ended March 31, 1998, as compared to the same period in 1997. The additional production volumes from the Mesa properties contributed 90% of production growth, and the Chauvco properties contributed 55%. The remainder of the increases are a direct result of the successes of the Company's exploration and exploitation efforts. Such production growth becomes particularly evident in light of the fact that a portion of the average daily oil and gas production for 1997 related to properties included in the 1997 sale of certain nonstrategic domestic assets. Excluding production associated with assets sold during 1997 and the Mesa and Chauvco properties acquired in 1997, on a BOE basis, production increased 21% for the three months ended March 31, 2022 as compared to the same period in 1997. The average oil price for the three months ended March 31, 2022 decreased 30% (from $19.99 to $13.97 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 1998, respectively) and the average gas price decreased 16% (from $2.47 to $2.07 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 1998, respectively). During the three months ended March 31, 1998, the Company received an average of $11.12 per Bbl for NGLs. Hedging Activities The oil and gas prices that the Company reports are based on the market price received for the commodities adjusted by the results of the Company's hedging activities. The Company periodically enters into commodity derivative contracts (swaps, futures and options) in order to (i) reduce the effect of the volatility of price changes on the commodities the Company produces and sells, (ii) support the Company's annual capital budgeting and expenditure plans and (iii) lock in prices to protect the economics related to certain capital projects. During the first quarter of 1998, the Company's hedging activities increased the average price received for oil and gas sales 6% and 7%, respectively, as discussed below. Crude Oil. All material purchase contracts governing the Company's oil production are tied directly or indirectly to NYMEX prices. The average oil price per Bbl that the Company reports includes the effects of oil quality, gathering and transportation costs and the net effect of the oil hedges. The Company's average realized price for physical oil sales (excluding hedge results) for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $13.16 per Bbl. The comparable average NYMEX prompt month closing for the same period was $15.92 per Bbl. Natural Gas. The Company employs a policy of hedging gas production based on the index price upon which the gas is actually sold in order to mitigate the basis risk between NYMEX prices and actual index prices. The average gas price per Mcf that the Company reports includes the effects of Btu content, gathering and transportation costs, gas processing and shrinkage and the net effect of the gas hedges. The Company's average realized price for physical gas sales (excluding hedge results) for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $1.94 per Mcf. The comparable average NYMEX prompt month closing for the same period was $2.21 per Mcf. 22 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY See Note E of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in "Item 1. Financial Statements" for information concerning the Company's open hedge positions at March 31, 2022 and the related prices to be realized. Production Costs. Total production costs per BOE decreased to $3.56 during the three months ended March 31, 2022 as compared to production costs per BOE of $4.13 during the same period in 1997. The decrease is due to decreases in domestic production taxes caused by lower commodity prices, the lower production costs of the Mesa and Chauvco properties, the sale of certain high operating cost properties in 1997 and ongoing cost reduction efforts. Depletion Expense. Depletion expense per BOE increased to $4.73 during the first quarter of 1998 from $4.40 per BOE during the first quarter of 1997. The increase in depletion expense per BOE during 1997 is primarily associated with the value allocated to Chauvco's reserves and decreases in oil and gas reserves due to declines in oil and gas prices from March 31, 2022 to March 31, 1998. Exploration and Abandonments/Geological and Geophysical Costs. Exploration and abandonments/geological and geophysical costs increased to $23.9 million during the first quarter of 1998 from $7.6 million during the same period in 1997. The increase is largely the result of increased geological and geophysical activity, both in domestic and international activity, resulting from the Company's increased focus on exploration activities. Three months ended March 31, -------------------- 1998 1997 -------- -------- (in thousands) Exploratory dry holes: United States $ 1,746 $ 4,517 Foreign 3,582 394 Geological and geophysical costs: United States 6,451 1,655 Foreign 6,372 558 Leasehold abandonments and other 5,798 491 ------- ------- $ 23,949 $ 7,615 ======= ======= Approximately 26% of the Company's 1998 capital budget will be spent on exploratory projects (compared to 25% in 1997 and 16.7% in 1996). The Company currently anticipates that its 1998 exploration efforts will be concentrated in the Gulf Coast region and its interests in Canada and Argentina. The Company continues to review opportunities involving exploration joint ventures in domestic or international areas outside the Company's existing core operating areas. General and Administrative Expense General and administrative expense was $20.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 as compared to $6.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 1997, representing an increase of $13.3 million. The increase is primarily due to the acquisitions of Mesa and Chauvco. Reorganization costs for the three months ended March 31, 2022 totaled $17.2 million. As announced in February 1998, the Company has consolidated its six domestic operating divisions into three geographic regions and is relocating most of its administrative services to Dallas, Texas. During the three months ended March 31, 1998, the Company has recorded severance, relocation, lease termination and other costs of approximately $17.2 million relating to this reorganization. The Company anticipates that it will incur total nonrecurring expenditures of approximately $20 million during 1998 as a result of this reorganization. As a result of this reorganization and ongoing cost reduction efforts, the Company expects general and administrative expenses on a BOE basis to be $1.00 per BOE by the end of 1998. 23 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY Interest Expense Interest expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 increased to $39.5 million as compared to $9.9 million for the comparable period in 1997. The increase is due to an increase of $1.7 billion in the weighted average outstanding balance of the Company's indebtedness for the three months ended March 31, 2022 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 1997. The increase in the weighted average outstanding balance of the Company's indebtedness was primarily the result of the additional debt assumed from Mesa, and to a lesser extent, from Chauvco. This increase is slightly offset by a decrease in the weighted average interest rate on the Company's indebtedness from 7.88% during the first quarter of 1997 to 7.36% during the first quarter of 1998. During the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 1997, the Company was a party to various interest rate swap agreements that resulted in a reduction in interest expense of $5 thousand and $390 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 1997, respectively. Income Taxes The Company's income tax benefit and provision of $13.4 million and $10.1 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2022 and March 31, 1997, respectively, reflect the net benefit and provision resulting from the separate tax calculation prepared for each tax jurisdiction in which the Company is subject to income taxes. At March 31, 1998, the Company has a current deferred tax asset of $15.3 million and a noncurrent deferred tax asset of $47.1 million. Management believes that it is more likely than not that the net deferred tax asset is realizable; however, realization is contingent upon future profitable operations and is not assured. Capital Commitments, Capital Resources and Liquidity Capital Commitments. The Company's primary needs for cash are for exploration, development and acquisitions of oil and gas properties, repayment of principal and interest on outstanding indebtedness and working capital obligations. The Company's cash expenditures during the first quarter of 1998 for additions to oil and gas properties totaled $195.3 million. This amount includes $13.1 million for the acquisition of properties and $182.2 million for development and exploratory drilling. Significant drilling expenditures in the first quarter of 1998 included $62.4 million in the Permian Basin region, $56.9 million in the onshore Gulf Coast region, $11.1 million in the MidContinent region, $33.6 million in Canada, $16.4 in Argentina and $1.8 million in other international areas. The Company's 1998 capital expenditure budget has been set at $440 million, reflecting planned expenditures of $265 million for exploitation activities, $115 million for exploration activities and $60 million for oil and gas property acquisitions in the Company's core areas. The Company budgets its capital expenditures based on projected internally-generated cash flows and routinely adjusts the level of its capital expenditures in response to anticipated changes in cash flows. Funding for the Company's working capital obligations is provided by internally-generated cash flows. Funding for the repayment of principal and interest on outstanding debt may be provided by any combination of internally-generated cash flows, proceeds from the disposition of nonstrategic assets or alternative financing sources as discussed in "Capital Resources" below. Capital Resources. The Company's primary capital resources are net cash provided by operating activities, proceeds from financing activities and proceeds from sales of nonstrategic assets. The Company expects that these resources will be sufficient to fund its capital commitments in 1998. 24 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY Net cash provided by operating activities decreased to $69.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 1998, as compared to the net cash provided by operating activities of $73.5 million for the same period in 1997. These decreases are primarily attributable to increases in interest expense, general and administrative expenses and reorganization costs, offset, to some extent, by cash flows generated by the acquired oil and gas properties from Mesa and Chauvco. Financing Activities. The Company had an outstanding balance under its domestic bank facility at March 31, 2022 of $941 million (including outstanding, undrawn letters of credit of $31 million), leaving approximately $434 million of unused borrowing base immediately available. At March 31, 1998, the Company also had $276 million outstanding under its Canadian credit facility leaving a borrowing capacity of $14 million. At March 31, 1998, the Company had four other outstanding significant debt issuances. Such debt issuances consist of (i) $150 million aggregate principal amount of 8-7/8% senior notes issued by Parker & Parsley in 1995 and due in 2005 (carrying value of $150.0 million), (ii) $150 million aggregate principal amount of 8-1/4% senior notes issued by Parker & Parsley in 1995 and due in 2007 (carrying value of $149.3 million), (iii) $350 million aggregate principal amount 6.5% senior notes issued in January 1998 and due in 2008 (carrying value of $348.3 million) and (iv) $250 million aggregate principal amount 7.2% senior notes issued in January 1998 and due in 2028 (carrying value of $249.9 million). The weighted average interest rate for the three months ended March 31, 2022 on the Company's indebtedness was 7.36% as compared to 7.88% for the three months ended March 31, 2022 (taking into account the effect of interest rate swaps). During January 1998, the Company completed the issuance of the 6.5% senior notes due 2008 and the 7.2% senior notes due 2028 for total net proceeds of $593 million. The proceeds were used primarily to repay the Company's bank indebtedness. Interest on the 6.5% and 7.2% senior notes is payable semi-annually on January 15 and July 15 of each year, commencing July 15, 1998. These two senior note issuances are governed by an Indenture between the Company and The Bank of New York dated January 13, 1998. Both senior note issuances are general unsecured obligations of the Company ranking equally in right of payment with all other senior unsecured indebtedness of the Company and are senior in right of payment to all existing and future subordinated indebtedness of the Company. In addition, the Company is a holding company that conducts all its operations through subsidiaries, and the senior notes are structurally subordinated to all obligations of its subsidiaries. The senior notes were fully and unconditionally guaranteed by Pioneer Natural Resources USA, Inc. ("Pioneer USA"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. As the Company continues to pursue its strategy, it may utilize alternative financing sources, including the issuance for cash of fixed rate long-term public debt, convertible securities or preferred stock. The Company may also issue securities in exchange for oil and gas properties, stock or other interests in other oil and gas companies or related assets. Additional securities may be of a class preferred to common stock with respect to such matters as dividends and liquidation rights and may also have other rights and preferences as determined by the Company's Board of Directors. Sales of Nonstrategic Assets. During the three months ended March 31, 1998 and 1997, proceeds from the sale of domestic nonstrategic assets totaled $12.9 million and $5.7 million, respectively. The proceeds from these sales were utilized to reduce the Company's outstanding bank indebtedness and for general working capital purposes. In February 1998, the Company announced its intentions to sell domestic nonstrategic properties for proceeds ranging from $375 to $550 million. These properties represent an estimated 10% to 12% of the Company's reserves at December 31, 1997. The Company plans to complete this divestiture in the latter part of 1998. The Company anticipates that it will continue to sell nonstrategic properties from time to time to increase capital resources available for other activities and to achieve operating and administrative efficiencies and improved profitability. The consummation of the Company's 1998 divestiture plans is entirely dependent on finding one or more willing buyers who have the financial wherewithal to complete such a purchase. Until such a buyer is found, the Company may reevaluate its portfolio of properties and at any time may adjust its plans concerning divestitures. As a result, there can be no assurance that the divestiture of any or all of these properties will be completed or that the estimated proceeds will be realized. 25 PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES COMPANY Liquidity. At March 31, 1998, the Company had $74.2 million of cash and cash equivalents on hand, compared to $71.7 million at December 31, 1997. The Company's ratio of current assets to current liabilities was 1.30 at March 31, 1998 and 1.18 at December 31, 1997. - --------------- (1) The information in this document includes forward-looking statements that are based on assumptions that in the future may prove not to have been accurate.
