INFORMATION REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This report includes “forward-looking statements” as defined by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Such statements are those concerning strategic plans, our expectations and objectives for future operations, as well as other future events or conditions. Such forward-looking statements are based on our examination of historical operating trends, the information used to prepare our December 31, 2013 reserve reports and other data in our possession or available from third parties. Such statements are subject to a number of assumptions, risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control. Consequently, actual future results could differ materially from our expectations due to a number of factors, such as changes in the supply of and demand for oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids (“NGLs”) and related products and services; exploration or drilling programs; our ability to successfully complete mergers, acquisitions and divestitures; political or regulatory events; general economic and financial market conditions; and other risks and factors discussed in this report.

All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to Devon Energy Corporation, or persons acting on its behalf, are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements above. We assume no duty to update or revise our forward-looking statements based on new information, future events or otherwise.

DEVON ENERGY CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

The accompanying unaudited financial statements and notes of Devon Energy Corporation (“Devon”) have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. Pursuant to such rules and regulations, certain disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been omitted. The accompanying financial statements and notes should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes included in Devon’s 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements furnished in this report reflect all adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of Devon’s results of operations and cash flows for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 and Devon’s financial position as of March 31, 2014.

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Devon and entities in which it holds a controlling interest. All intercompany transactions have been eliminated. Undivided interests in oil and natural gas exploration and production joint ventures are consolidated on a proportionate basis. Investments in non-controlled entities, over which Devon has the ability to exercise significant influence over operating and financial policies, are accounted for using the equity method. In applying the equity method of accounting, the investments are initially recognized at cost, and subsequently adjusted for Devon’s proportionate share of earnings, losses, and distributions. Investments accounted for using the equity method and cost method are reported as a component of other long-term assets.

As discussed more fully in Note 2, on March 7, 2014, Devon completed a business combination whereby Devon controls both EnLink Midstream Partners, LP (the “Partnership”) and its general partner entity, EnLink Midstream, LLC (“EnLink”). Devon controls both the Partnership’s and EnLink’s operations; therefore, the Partnership and EnLink’s accounts are included in Devon’s accompanying consolidated financial statements subsequent to the completion of the transaction. The portions of the Partnership and EnLink’s net earnings and stockholders’ equity not attributable to Devon’s controlling interest are shown separately as noncontrolling interests in the accompanying consolidated comprehensive statements of earnings and consolidated balance sheets.

Intangible Assets

EnLink’s long-term assets include intangible assets, consisting of customer relationships. These assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over the expected periods of benefits, which range from fifteen to twenty years.

2. Acquisitions and Divestitures

Formation of EnLink Midstream, LLC and EnLink Midstream Partners, LP

On March 7, 2014, Devon, Crosstex Energy, Inc. and Crosstex Energy, LP (together with Crosstex Energy, Inc., “Crosstex”) completed a business combination to combine substantially all of Devon’s U.S. midstream assets with Crosstex’s assets to form a new midstream business. The new business consists of the Partnership and EnLink, a master limited partnership and a general partner entity, respectively, which are both publicly traded entities.

In exchange for a controlling interest in both EnLink and the Partnership, Devon contributed its equity interest in a newly formed Devon subsidiary EnLink Midstream Holdings, LP (“EnLink Holdings”) and $100 million in cash. EnLink Holdings owns Devon’s midstream assets in the Barnett Shale in north Texas and the Cana and Arkoma Woodford Shales in Oklahoma, as well as Devon’s economic interest in Gulf Coast Fractionators in Mt. Belvieu, Texas. The Partnership and EnLink each own 50 percent of EnLink Holdings.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (Continued)

(Unaudited)

 

The ownership of EnLink is approximately:

 

   

70% - Devon

 

   

30% - Public unitholders

The ownership of the Partnership is approximately:

 

   

52% - Devon

 

   

41% - Public unitholders

 

   

7% - EnLink

This business combination was accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting. Under the acquisition method of accounting, EnLink Holdings was the accounting acquirer because its parent company, Devon, obtained control of EnLink and the Partnership as a result of the business combination. Consequently, EnLink Holdings’ assets and liabilities retained their carrying values. Additionally, the Crosstex assets acquired and liabilities assumed by the Partnership and EnLink in the business combination, as well as EnLink’s noncontrolling interest in the Partnership, were recorded at their fair values which were measured as of the acquisition date, March 7, 2014. The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair values of Crosstex’s net assets acquired was recorded as goodwill. The purchase price allocation has been prepared on a preliminary basis pending receipt of a final valuation report and is subject to material change.

The following table summarizes the preliminary estimate of the purchase price and its allocation to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed (in millions, except unit price).

GeoSouthern Energy Acquisition

On November 20, 2013, Devon entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement with GeoSouthern Energy Corporation (“GeoSouthern”) and a wholly owned subsidiary of GeoSouthern to acquire GeoSouthern’s interests in certain affiliates (the “Acquired Companies”) that own certain oil and gas properties, leasehold mineral interest and related assets located in the Eagle Ford Shale. On February 28, 2014, the GeoSouthern acquisition closed and GeoSouthern transferred the Acquired Companies to Devon in exchange for the aggregate purchase price of approximately $6.0 billion. Devon funded the acquisition price with cash on hand and debt financing. In connection with the GeoSouthern acquisition, Devon acquired approximately 82,000 net acres located in DeWitt and Lavaca counties in south Texas. The transaction was accounted for using the acquisition method, which requires, among other things, that assets acquired and liabilities assumed be recognized at their fair values as of the acquisition date. The purchase price allocation has been prepared on a preliminary basis and is subject to material change. The following table summarizes the preliminary allocation of the purchase price to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the transaction (in millions).

Canadian Conventional Assets Divestiture

In November 2013, Devon announced plans to divest certain non-core properties located throughout Canada and the U.S. In the first quarter of 2014, Devon completed minor divestiture transactions for $142 million. On April 1, 2014, Devon sold the majority of its Canadian conventional assets to Canadian Natural Resources Limited for approximately $2.7 billion after taxes ($3.125 billion in Canadian dollars).

3. Derivative Financial Instruments

Objectives and Strategies

Devon periodically enters into derivative financial instruments with respect to a portion of its oil, gas and NGL production. These instruments are used to manage the inherent uncertainty of future revenues due to commodity price volatility and typically include financial price swaps, basis swaps, costless price collars and call options. Devon periodically enters into interest rate swaps to manage its exposure to interest rate volatility. Devon periodically enters into foreign exchange forward contracts to manage its exposure to fluctuations in exchange rates. Additionally, EnLink manages its exposure to fluctuations in commodity prices by hedging the impact of market fluctuations.

Devon does not intend to hold or issue derivative financial instruments for speculative trading purposes and has elected not to designate any of its derivative instruments for hedge accounting treatment.

Counterparty Credit Risk

By using derivative financial instruments, Devon is exposed to credit risk. Credit risk is the failure of the counterparty to perform under the terms of the derivative contract. To mitigate this risk, the hedging instruments are placed with a number of counterparties whom Devon believes are acceptable credit risks. It is Devon’s policy to enter into derivative contracts only with investment grade rated counterparties deemed by management to be competent and competitive market makers. Additionally, Devon’s derivative contracts contain provisions that provide for collateral payments, depending on levels of exposure and the credit rating of the counterparty. As of March 31, 2014, Devon did not hold any cash collateral from its counterparties.

Total asset impairments

   $ 1,913       $ 1,308   
  

 

 

    

 

 

 

Oil and Gas Impairments

Under the full-cost method of accounting, capitalized costs of oil and gas properties, net of accumulated DD&A and deferred income taxes, may not exceed the full-cost “ceiling” at the end of each quarter. The ceiling is calculated separately for each country and is based on the present value of estimated future net cash flows from proved oil and gas reserves, discounted at 10 percent per annum, net of related tax effects. Estimated future net cash flows are calculated using end-of-period costs and an unweighted arithmetic average of commodity prices in effect on the first day of each of the previous 12 months.

The oil and gas impairments resulted primarily from declines in the U.S. and Canada full-cost ceilings. The lower ceiling values resulted primarily from decreases in the 12-month average trailing prices for oil, bitumen and NGLs, which reduced proved reserve values.

6. Restructuring Costs

Canadian Divestitures

In the first quarter of 2014, Devon recognized $37 million of estimated employee related costs associated with its Canadian non-core asset divestitures. Approximately $14 million of the employee related costs resulted from accelerated vesting of share-based grants, which are non-cash charges.

Office Consolidation

In October 2012, Devon announced plans to consolidate its U.S. personnel into a single operations group centrally located at the company’s headquarters in Oklahoma City. As of December 31, 2013, Devon had completed this initiative and incurred $134 million of restructuring costs associated with the office consolidation.

12. Goodwill

The table below provides a summary of Devon’s goodwill, by assigned reporting unit. The changes to Devon’s goodwill in the first quarter of 2014 largely relate to EnLink. Included in the assets Devon contributed to EnLink Holdings was $402 million of goodwill, which is in the table below. The additional EnLink goodwill of $3.4 billion represents the goodwill recognized on the EnLink transaction described in Note 2. The decrease in Devon’s Canadian goodwill was primarily due to changes in the exchange rate between the United States dollar and the Canadian dollar, as well as goodwill removed in conjunction with minor asset divestitures.

Credit Lines

Devon has a $3.0 billion syndicated, unsecured revolving line of credit (the “Senior Credit Facility”). As of March 31, 2014, there were no borrowings under the Senior Credit Facility. The Senior Credit Facility contains only one material financial covenant. This covenant requires Devon’s ratio of total funded debt to total capitalization, as defined in the credit agreement, to be no greater than 65 percent. As of March 31, 2014, Devon was in compliance with this covenant with a debt-to-capitalization ratio of 28.3 percent.

Term Loans

In December 2013, in conjunction with the GeoSouthern acquisition, Devon entered into a term loan agreement with a group of major financial institutions. In February 2014, Devon drew $2.0 billion of term loans to finance, in part, the GeoSouthern acquisition and to pay transaction costs. Under the term loan agreement, $1.0 billion of the term loans have a maturity of three years, and the remaining $1.0 billion have a maturity of five years (the “5-Year Loans”). The 5-Year Loans will provide for the partial amortization of principal during the last two years that they are outstanding. Loans outstanding under the term loan agreement, at Devon’s election, bear interest at various fixed rate options for periods up to six months. Such rates are generally less than the prime rate. However, Devon may elect to borrow at the prime rate.

Devon intends to repay the $2.0 billion term loans in the second quarter of 2014 using Canadian divestiture proceeds that will be repatriated to the U.S. Accordingly, amounts outstanding under the term loans have been classified as short-term debt in the consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2014.

EnLink Debt

Credit Facilities

The Partnership has a $1.0 billion unsecured revolving credit facility, which includes a $500 million letter of credit subfacility. As of March 31, 2014, there were no borrowings under the $1.0 billion credit facility.

The $1.0 billion credit facility will mature on the fifth anniversary of the initial funding date, which was March 7, 2014, unless EnLink requests, and the requisite lenders agree, to extend it pursuant to its terms. The credit facility contains certain financial, operational and legal covenants. Among other things, these covenants include maintaining a ratio of consolidated indebtedness to EnLink’s consolidated EBITDA (as defined in the credit facility, which definition includes projected EnLink EBITDA from certain capital expansion projects) of no more than 5.0 to 1.0. If EnLink consummates one or more acquisitions in which the aggregate purchase price is $50 million or more, the maximum allowed ratio of consolidated indebtedness to EnLink’s consolidated EBITDA will increase to 5.5 to 1.0 for the quarter of the acquisition and the three following quarters.

EnLink also has a $250 million revolving credit facility, which includes a $125 million letter of credit subfacility, as well as an additional credit agreement in association with E2 Energy Services LLC under which EnLink can borrow up to $20 million. As of March 31, 2014, EnLink’s outstanding borrowings under the $250 million credit facility was $103 million and $15 million in association with the E2 Energy Services LLC credit agreement.

The $250 million credit facility will mature on March 7, 2019. The credit facility contains certain financial, operational and legal covenants. The financial covenants will be tested on a quarterly basis, based on the rolling four-quarter period that ends on the last day of each fiscal quarter, and include (i) maintaining a maximum consolidated leverage ratio (as defined in the credit facility, but generally computed as the ratio of consolidated funded indebtedness to consolidated earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and certain other non-cash charges) of 4.00 to 1.00, provided that the maximum consolidated leverage ratio is 4.50 to 1.00 during an acquisition period (as defined in the credit facility) and (ii) maintaining a minimum consolidated interest coverage ratio (as defined in the credit facility, but generally computed as the ratio of consolidated earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and certain other non-cash charges to consolidated interest charges) of 2.50 to 1.00 at all times prior to the occurrence of an investment grade event (as defined in the credit facility).

16. Stockholders’ Equity

Dividends

Devon paid common stock dividends of $90 million and $81 million in the first three months of 2014 and 2013, respectively. The quarterly cash dividend was $0.20 per share in the first quarter of 2013. Devon increased the dividend rate to $0.22 per share in the second quarter of 2013.

17. Commitments and Contingencies

Devon is party to various legal actions arising in the normal course of business. Matters that are probable of unfavorable outcome to Devon and which can be reasonably estimated are accrued. Such accruals are based on information known about the matters, Devon’s estimates of the outcomes of such matters and its experience in contesting, litigating and settling similar matters. None of the actions are believed by management to involve future amounts that would be material to Devon’s financial position or results of operations after consideration of recorded accruals. Actual amounts could differ materially from management’s estimates.

Royalty Matters

Numerous oil and natural gas producers and related parties, including Devon, have been named in various lawsuits alleging royalty underpayments. The suits allege that the producers and related parties used below-market prices, made improper deductions, used improper measurement techniques and entered into gas purchase and processing arrangements with affiliates that resulted in underpayment of royalties in connection with oil, natural gas and NGLs produced and sold. Devon’s largest exposure for such matters relates to royalties associated with Devon’s operations in New Mexico. Devon expects to mediate or go to trial before the end of 2014 as ordered by the court in the first quarter of 2014. Devon does not currently believe that it is subject to material exposure with respect to such royalty matters.

Environmental Matters

Devon is subject to certain laws and regulations relating to environmental remediation activities associated with past operations, such as the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act and similar state statutes. In response to liabilities associated with these activities, loss accruals primarily consist of estimated uninsured remediation costs. Devon’s monetary exposure for environmental matters is not expected to be material.

Other Matters

Devon is involved in other various routine legal proceedings incidental to its business. However, to Devon’s knowledge, there were no other material pending legal proceedings to which Devon is a party or to which any of its property is subject.

18. Fair Value Measurements

The following tables provide carrying value and fair value measurement information for certain of Devon’s financial assets and liabilities. The carrying values of cash, accounts receivable, other current receivables, accounts payable, other current payables and accrued expenses included in the accompanying balance sheets approximated fair value at March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013.

Cash equivalents — Amounts consist primarily of U.S. and Canadian treasury securities and money market investments. The fair value approximates the carrying value.

Level 2 Fair Value Measurements

Cash equivalents — Amounts consist primarily of Canadian agency and provincial securities and commercial paper investments. The fair value approximates the carrying value.

Commodity, interest rate and foreign currency derivatives — The fair values of commodity, interest rate and foreign currency derivatives are estimated using internal discounted cash flow calculations based upon forward curves and data obtained from independent third parties for contracts with similar terms or data obtained from counterparties to the agreements.

Debt — Devon’s debt instruments do not actively trade in an established market. The fair values of its debt are estimated based on rates available for debt with similar terms and maturity. The fair value of Devon’s commercial paper and EnLink’s credit facility is the carrying value.

Obligations under capital leases — The fair value of obligations under capital leases was calculated using inputs from third-party banks.

Level 3 Fair Value Measurements

Long-term investments — Devon’s long-term investments as of December 31, 2013 consisted entirely of auction rate securities. In the first quarter of 2014, Devon redeemed all these securities for approximately $57 million, or $5 million below their carrying value.

19. Segment Information

Devon manages its operations through distinct operating segments, which are defined primarily by geographic areas. For financial reporting purposes, Devon aggregates its U.S. operating segments into one reporting segment due to the similar nature of the businesses. However, Devon’s Canadian operating segment is reported as a separate reporting segment primarily due to the significant differences between the U.S. and Canadian regulatory environments. Devon’s U.S. and Canadian segments are all primarily engaged in oil and gas exploration and production activities.

With the formation of EnLink in the first quarter of 2014, Devon considers EnLink to be an operating segment that is distinct from its existing operating segments. EnLink’s operations consist of midstream assets and operations located across the United States. Additionally, EnLink has a management team that is primarily responsible for capital and resource allocation decisions. Therefore, EnLink is presented as a separate reporting segment. For the reporting periods prior to the formation of EnLink, Devon has reclassified, from its U.S. segment to the EnLink segment, all asset-level amounts related to the midstream assets that it contributed to EnLink Holdings.

(1) Adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share attributable to Devon are financial measures not prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (GAAP). For a description of adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share attributable to Devon, as well as reconciliations to the comparable GAAP measures, see “Non-GAAP Measures” in this Item 2.
(2) Computed as revenues from commodity sales, commodity derivatives settlements and marketing and midstream operations, less expenses for lease operations, marketing and midstream operations, general and administrative, production and property taxes and interest, with the result divided by total production.

During the three-month period ended March 31, 2014, our adjusted earnings, adjusted earnings per share and adjusted operating income per Boe all increased compared to 2013. The improved 2014 results were driven primarily by increases in oil and gas prices, liquids volumes and oil realizations. These factors also contributed to higher adjusted operating cash flow, which when combined with a reduction in capital expenditures, excluding the GeoSouthern acquisition, caused our cash flow deficit to narrow considerably in 2014.

During the first quarter of 2014, we made significant progress toward three strategic initiatives that are focused on building value per share. On February 28, 2014, we closed the GeoSouthern acquisition and acquired GeoSouthern’s Eagle Ford Shale assets and operations in south Texas for approximately $6.0 billion. This acquisition included approximately 250 MMBoe of proved reserves. Additionally, during the month of March 2014, our Eagle Ford assets produced 49 MBoe/d, including 31 MBbls/d of oil.

Additionally, on March 7, 2014, we, Crosstex Energy, Inc. and Crosstex Energy, L.P. (collectively “Crosstex”) completed a transaction to combine substantially all of our U.S. midstream assets with Crosstex’s assets to form a new midstream business referred to as EnLink. This transaction, including Devon’s controlling ownership of EnLink, is described more fully in “Part I. Financial Information – Item 1. Financial Statements – Note 2” in this report. The results of operations from our assets contributed to EnLink are included in our consolidated financial statements for all periods presented. Additionally, the results of operations for all assets contributed to EnLink are included in our consolidated financial statements subsequent to the completion of the transaction. The portions of EnLink’s net earnings and stockholders’ equity not attributable to Devon’s controlling interest are shown separately as noncontrolling interests in our consolidated comprehensive statements of earnings and consolidated balance sheets.

Finally, on April 1, 2014, we sold the majority of our Canadian conventional assets to Canadian Natural Resources Limited for approximately $2.7 billion after taxes ($3.125 billion in Canadian dollars). This divestiture included approximately 170 MMBoe of proved reserves. Production associated with the divested properties was approximately 79.0 MBoe/d, including 357 MMcf/d of natural gas. We expect to repatriate the divestiture proceeds to the U.S. in the second quarter of 2014 to repay borrowings used to fund a portion of the GeoSouthern acquisition.

Upstream sales increased $178 million in the first quarter of 2014 due to a 20 percent increase in our liquids production, partially offset by a 10 percent decline in our gas production. As a result of continued development of our oil properties, primarily in the Permian Basin, Mississippian-Woodford Trend and in our recently acquired Eagle Ford Shale properties, oil sales increased $209 million. Additionally, our NGL sales increased $38 million primarily as a result of continued drilling in the liquids-rich gas portions of the Cana-Woodford, Mississippian-Woodford Trend, Permian Basin and Eagle Ford. These increases were partially offset by declines in our dry gas production, which resulted in a $61 million decrease in sales. Bitumen sales decreased $8 million primarily due to higher royalties on our Jackfish thermal heavy oil projects in Canada.

Upstream sales increased $575 million in the first quarter of 2014, primarily due to a 41 percent increase in our realized price without hedges. Gas sales were the most significantly impacted with an increase of $286 million, largely due to higher North American regional index prices upon which our gas sales are based. Oil and bitumen sales increased $251 million due to prices and realizations. Additionally, NGL sales increased $38 million as a result of an 11 percent increase in our realized price without hedges. The largest contributors to the higher liquids prices were an increase in the average NYMEX West Texas Intermediate index price and tighter bitumen and heavy oil differentials as well as higher NGL prices in the Mont Belvieu, Texas index.

(1) Cash settlements of oil hedges include settlements from our Western Canadian Select basis swaps presented in Note 3 to the financial statements included in “Item 1. Consolidated Financial Statements” of this report.

Cash settlements as presented in the tables above represent realized gains or losses related to various commodity derivatives. In addition to cash settlements, we also recognize fair value changes on our commodity derivatives in each reporting period. The changes in fair value result from new positions and settlements that occur during each period, as well as the relationships between contract prices and the associated forward curves. Including the cash settlements discussed above, our commodity derivatives incurred net losses of $320 million during both the first three months of 2014 and 2013.

Marketing and Midstream Revenues and Operating Expenses

During the first three months of 2014, marketing and midstream operating profit increased $59 million, primarily due to higher prices and volumes. Of the $59 million increase, $47 million is attributable to EnLink’s operations. EnLink’s Oklahoma segment, which includes the Cana plant and gathering system, was the largest driver of the increase. The remaining increase in operating profit relates to Devon’s marketing activities.

Besides the impact to our overall operating profit, Devon’s marketing activities were the primary driver of the increases in both operating revenues and product purchases. The associated marketing revenues increased approximately $830 million while product purchases increased approximately $810 million in the comparative periods. The higher marketing revenues and product purchases are primarily due to new commitments we have entered into to secure capacity on downstream oil pipelines.

Table of Contents

LOE increased $1.12 per Boe during the first three months of 2014. The largest contributor to the higher unit cost relates to our Canadian operations. The higher Canadian unit costs largely result from higher Canadian royalties paid in the first quarter of 2014. As Canadian royalties increase, our net production volumes decrease, causing upward pressure on our per-unit operating costs. Improved price realizations, particularly related to our thermal heavy oil operations, resulted in higher royalties in the first quarter of 2014. Additionally, Jackfish 1 reached payout in the second quarter of 2013, contributing to higher royalties post payout. Besides an increase in Canadian royalties, upward cost pressures at Jackfish and Lloydminster also contributed to the higher per unit costs in Canada. The higher unit cost in the U.S. was primarily related to our liquids production growth, particularly in the Permian Basin and Rockies, where projects generally require a higher cost to produce per unit than our gas projects. Additionally, we experienced upward pressures on costs in certain operating areas, which also contributed to the higher LOE per Boe.

Net G&A and net G&A per Boe increased during the first three months of 2014 largely due to higher employee compensation and benefits, $22 million in one-time costs related to the EnLink and GeoSouthern transactions and lower capitalized G&A. The higher employee compensation and benefits costs were primarily related to share-based awards, which cause our G&A to be higher in the quarter in which our annual share-based grant is made. The grant related to our 2013 compensation cycle was made in the first quarter of 2014. The grant related to our 2012 compensation cycle was made in the fourth quarter of 2012. Additionally, higher employee severance costs in 2014 as well as expansion of our workforce as a part of growing production operations at certain of our key areas also contributed to the increase.

DD&A from our oil and gas properties increased during the first three months of 2014 largely due to higher DD&A rates. The higher rates resulted from our oil and gas drilling and development activities and the GeoSouthern acquisition, which were partially offset by the effect of the asset impairments recognized in the first quarter of 2013.

Oil and Gas Impairments

Under the full-cost method of accounting, capitalized costs of oil and gas properties are subject to a quarterly full-cost ceiling test. The oil and gas asset impairments resulted primarily from declines in the U.S. and Canada full-cost ceilings. The lower ceiling values resulted primarily from decreases in the 12-month average trailing prices for oil, bitumen and NGLs, which reduced proved reserve values.

Canadian Divestitures

In the first quarter of 2014, we recognized $37 million of estimated employee related costs associated with our Canadian non-core asset divestitures. Approximately $14 million of the employee related costs resulted from accelerated vesting of share-based grants, which are non-cash charges.

Office Consolidation

In the first quarter of 2013, we incurred $38 million of restructuring costs associated with the consolidation of our U.S. personnel into one location in Oklahoma City. This amount includes $23 million related to office space that is subject to non-cancellable operating lease agreements that we ceased using as a part of the office consolidation. We also recognized $9 million of asset impairment charges for leasehold improvements and furniture associated with the office consolidation.

Operating Cash Flow

Net cash provided by operating activities (“operating cash flow”) was a significant source of capital in the first three months of 2014. Our operating cash flow increased 41 percent during 2014 primarily due to higher commodity prices, higher oil realizations and production growth, partially offset by higher expenses.

During the first three months of 2014 and 2013, our operating cash flow funded approximately 90 percent and 50 percent, respectively, of our capital expenditures, excluding the approximately $6.0 billion GeoSouthern acquisition. Leveraging our liquidity, we used cash balances and debt to fund the remainder of our cash-based capital expenditures.

Capital Expenditures

The amounts in the table below reflect cash payments for capital expenditures, including cash paid for capital expenditures incurred in prior periods.

Our capital expenditures consist of amounts related to our oil and gas exploration and development operations, our midstream operations and other corporate activities. The vast majority of our capital expenditures are for the acquisition, drilling and development of oil and gas properties, which totaled $7.2 billion and $1.6 billion in the first three months of 2014 and 2013, respectively. The increase in capital spending was due to the approximately $6.0 billion GeoSouthern acquisition. Excluding this acquisition, exploration and development capital spending decreased 18 percent in the first three months of 2014, primarily due to a decline in new venture acreage acquisitions and utilization of the drilling carries in 2014 from our Sinopec and Sumitomo joint venture arrangements.

Capital expenditures for our midstream operations are primarily for the construction and expansion of natural gas processing plants, natural gas gathering systems and oil pipelines. Historically, our midstream capital expenditures have largely been impacted by our oil and gas drilling activities. However, in the future, our midstream capital expenditures will be impacted primarily by EnLink’s operations, as well as by our oil and gas drilling activities.

Debt Activity, Net

During the first three months of 2014, we increased our debt borrowings a net amount of $2.0 billion, which primarily related to additional borrowings used to fund a portion of the GeoSouthern acquisition cost. We also utilized net commercial paper borrowings of $257 million to fund capital expenditures in excess of our operating cash flow. Our debt decreased $500 million due to repayment of senior notes due on January 15, 2014. Additionally, our debt increased $1.7 billion in the first quarter of 2014 in connection with the EnLink transaction, which closed on March 7, 2014. This increase solely arises because we control EnLink and, therefore, consolidate EnLink’s accounts, including its debt, with Devon’s. EnLink’s debt is non-recourse to Devon.

During the first three months of 2013, we utilized net commercial paper borrowings of $508 million to fund capital expenditures in excess of our operating cash flow.

Distributions to Devon shareholders

The following table summarizes our common stock dividends (amounts in millions) during the first three months of 2014 and 2013. In the second quarter of 2013, we increased our quarterly dividend to $0.22 per share.

Distributions to noncontrolling interests

In conjunction with the formation of EnLink, we paid $100 million to holders of EnLink’s publicly traded units in the first quarter of 2014.

Divestitures

In November 2013, we announced plans to divest certain non-core properties located throughout Canada and the U.S. In the first quarter of 2014, we completed minor divestiture transactions and received proceeds of $142 million.

Liquidity

Historically, our primary sources of capital and liquidity have been our operating cash flow, asset divestiture proceeds and cash on hand. Additionally, we maintain revolving lines of credit and a commercial paper program, which can be accessed as needed to supplement operating cash flow and cash balances. Other available sources of capital and liquidity include debt and equity securities that can be issued pursuant to our shelf registration statement filed with the SEC. We estimate the combination of these sources of capital will continue to be adequate to fund future capital expenditures, debt repayments and other contractual commitments. The following sections discuss changes to our liquidity subsequent to filing our 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Operating Cash Flow

Our operating cash flow is sensitive to many variables, the most volatile of which are the prices of the oil, gas and NGLs we produce. We expect operating cash flow to continue to be our primary source of liquidity. To mitigate some of the risk inherent in prices, we have utilized various derivative financial instruments to set minimum and maximum prices on a portion of our 2014 production. The key terms to our open oil, gas and NGL derivative financial instruments as of March 31, 2014 are presented in “Part I. Financial Information – Item 1. Financial Statements – Note 3” in this report.

Credit Availability

As of March 31, 2014, we had $3.0 billion of available capacity under our syndicated, unsecured revolving line of credit (the “Senior Credit Facility”), net of letters of credit outstanding. We also have access to $3.0 billion of short-term credit under our commercial paper program. At March 31, 2014, we had $1.6 billion of commercial paper borrowings outstanding.

The Senior Credit Facility contains only one material financial covenant. This covenant requires us to maintain a ratio of total funded debt to total capitalization, as defined in the credit agreement, to be no greater than 65 percent. As of March 31, 2014, we were in compliance with this covenant with a debt-to-capitalization ratio of 28.3 percent.

Table of Contents

The Partnership has a $1.0 billion unsecured revolving credit facility, which includes a $500 million letter of credit subfacility. EnLink also has a $250 million revolving credit facility, which includes a $125 million letter of credit subfacility, as well as an additional credit agreement in association with E2 Energy Services LLC under which EnLink can borrow up to $20 million. As of March 31, 2014, there were no borrowings under the $1.0 billion credit facility, and there was $103 million borrowed under the $250 million credit facility and $15 million borrowed in association with the E2 Energy Services LLC credit facility.

Asset Divestitures

On April 1, 2014, we sold the majority of our Canadian conventional assets to Canadian Natural Resources Limited for approximately $2.7 billion after taxes ($3.125 billion in Canadian dollars). In the second quarter of 2014, we plan to repatriate the sale proceeds into the U.S. and repay the $2.0 billion term loan that funded a portion of the GeoSouthern acquisition cost.

(1) Debt amounts represent scheduled maturities of our debt obligations at March 31, 2014, excluding $8 million of net premiums included in the carrying value of debt.
(2) Interest expense represents the scheduled cash payments on long-term, fixed-rate debt and an estimate of our floating-rate debt.
(3) Purchase obligation amounts represent contractual commitments primarily to purchase condensate at market prices for use at our heavy oil projects in Canada. We have entered into these agreements because condensate is an integral part of the heavy oil transportation process. Any disruption in our ability to obtain condensate could negatively affect our ability to transport heavy oil at these locations. Our total obligation related to condensate purchases expires in 2021. The value of the obligation in the table above is based on the contractual volumes and our internal estimate of future condensate market prices.
(4) Operational agreements represent commitments to transport or process certain volumes of oil, gas and NGLs for a fixed fee. We have entered into these agreements to aid the movement of our production to downstream markets. The operational agreements in the table above are as of March 31, 2014 but have been adjusted for the agreements transferred to Canadian Natural Resources Limited as a part of the sale of the Canadian conventional assets in April 2014.Operational agreements include approximately $2.2 billion of obligations between Devon and EnLink. The terms of the contracts with EnLink are summarized in the following table.

Critical Accounting Estimates

Devon conducts its annual goodwill impairment test as of October 31 each year. At October 31, 2013, the date of our last goodwill impairment test, the fair values of our U.S. and Canadian reporting units exceeded their related carrying values. The fair value of our U.S. reporting unit substantially exceeded its carrying value. However, the fair value of our Canadian reporting unit is not substantially in excess of its carrying value. As of October 31, 2013, the fair value of our Canadian reporting unit exceeded its carrying value by approximately 11 percent. As of March 31, 2014, we had $2.7 billion of goodwill allocated to the Canadian reporting unit. Significant decreases to our stock price, decreases in commodity prices, negative deviations from projected Canadian reporting unit earnings or unfavorable changes in reserves could result in a goodwill impairment charge. A goodwill impairment charge would have no effect on liquidity or capital resources. However, it would adversely affect our results of operations in that period.

Non-GAAP Measures

We make reference to “adjusted earnings attributable to Devon” and “adjusted earnings per share attributable to Devon” in “Overview of 2014 Results” in this Item 2 that are not required by or presented in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered as alternatives to GAAP measures. Adjusted earnings attributable to Devon, as well as the per share amount, represent net earnings excluding certain non-cash or non-recurring items that are typically excluded by securities analysts in their published estimates of our financial results. Our non-GAAP measures are typically used as a quarterly performance measure. Items may appear to be recurring while comparing on an annual basis. In the below table, restructuring costs were incurred in each period. However, these costs relate to different restructuring programs. Amounts excluded for the first quarter of 2014 relate to our Canadian divestiture program and amounts excluded for the first quarter of 2013 relate to our office consolidation. For more information on our restructuring programs see Note 6 to the financial statements included in this report. We believe these non-GAAP measures facilitate comparisons of our performance to earnings estimates published by securities analysts. We also believe these non-GAAP measures can facilitate comparisons of our performance between periods and to the performance of our peers.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

Commodity Price Risk

We have commodity derivatives that pertain to a portion of our production for the last nine months of 2014, as well as 2015 and 2016. The key terms to our open oil, gas and NGL derivative financial instruments as of March 31, 2014 are presented in “Part I. Financial Information – Item 1. Financial Statements – Note 3” in this report.

The fair values of our commodity derivatives are largely determined by estimates of the forward curves of the relevant price indices. At March 31, 2014, a 10 percent change in the forward curves associated with our commodity derivative instruments would have changed our net asset positions by the following amounts:

 

     10% Increase     10% Decrease  
     (In millions)  

Gain (loss):

    

Gas derivatives

   $ (269   $ 235   

Oil derivatives

   $ (597   $ 539   

Interest Rate Risk

At March 31, 2014, we had total debt outstanding of $15.5 billion. Of this amount, $11.0 billion bears fixed interest rates averaging 4.9 percent. The remaining $4.5 billion of debt is comprised of commercial paper borrowings that bear interest rates averaging 0.23 percent and floating rate debt that at March 31, 2014 had rates averaging 1.3 percent. Our commercial paper borrowings typically have maturities between 1 and 90 days.

As of March 31, 2014, we had open interest rate swap positions that are presented in “Part I. Financial Information – Item 1. Financial Statements – Note 3” in this report. The fair values of our interest rate swaps are largely determined by estimates of the forward curves of the 3 month LIBOR rate. A 10 percent change in these forward curves would not have materially impacted our balance sheet at March 31, 2014.

Foreign Currency Risk

Our net assets, net earnings and cash flows from our Canadian subsidiaries are based on the U.S. dollar equivalent of such amounts measured in the Canadian dollar functional currency. Assets and liabilities of the Canadian subsidiaries are translated to U.S. dollars using the applicable exchange rate as of the end of a reporting period. Revenues, expenses and cash flow are translated using an average exchange rate during the reporting period. A 10 percent unfavorable change in the Canadian-to-U.S. dollar exchange rate would not materially impact our March 31, 2014 balance sheet.

Our non-Canadian foreign subsidiaries have a U.S. dollar functional currency. However, one of these foreign subsidiaries holds Canadian-dollar cash and engages in short-term intercompany loans with Canadian subsidiaries that are based in Canadian dollars. The value of the Canadian-dollar cash and intercompany loans increases or decreases from the remeasurement of the cash and loans into the U.S. dollar functional currency. Additionally, at March 31, 2014, we held foreign currency exchange forward contracts to hedge exposures to fluctuations in exchange rates on the Canadian-dollar cash and intercompany loans. The increase or decrease in the value of the forward contracts is offset by the increase or decrease to the U.S. dollar equivalent of the Canadian-dollar cash and intercompany loans. Based on the amount of the cash and intercompany loans as of March  31, 2014, a 10 percent change in the foreign currency exchange rates would not have materially impacted our balance sheet.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

We have established disclosure controls and procedures to ensure that material information relating to Devon, including its consolidated subsidiaries, is made known to the officers who certify Devon’s financial reports and to other members of senior management and the Board of Directors.

Based on their evaluation, our principal executive and principal financial officers have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) were effective as of March 31, 2014, to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by Devon in the reports that it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC rules and forms.

(1) Share repurchases represent shares received by us from employees and directors for the payment of personal income tax withholding on restricted stock vesting and stock option exercises.

Under the Devon Energy Corporation Incentive Savings Plan (the “Plan”), eligible employees may purchase shares of our common stock through an investment in the Devon Stock Fund (the “Stock Fund”), which is administered by an independent trustee. Eligible employees purchased approximately 18,600 shares of our common stock in the first quarter of 2014, at then-prevailing stock prices, that they held through their ownership in the Stock Fund. We acquired the shares of our common stock sold under the Plan through open-market purchases.

Similarly, under the Devon Canada Corporation Savings Plan (the “Canadian Plan”), eligible Canadian employees may purchase shares of our common stock through an investment in the Canadian Plan, which is administered by an independent trustee, Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada. Eligible Canadian employees purchased approximately 700 shares of our common stock in the first quarter of 2014, at then-prevailing stock prices, that they held through their ownership in the Canadian Plan. We acquired the shares sold under the Canadian Plan through open-market purchases. These shares and any interest in the Canadian Plan were offered and sold in reliance on the exemptions for offers and sales of securities made outside of the U.S., including under Regulation S for offers and sales of securities to employees pursuant to an employee benefit plan established and administered in accordance with the law of a country other than the U.S.
