Magnolia Oil & Gas Corporation
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

1. Description of Business and Basis of Presentation

Organization and Nature of Operations

Magnolia Oil & Gas Corporation (the “Company” or “Magnolia”) is an independent oil and natural gas company engaged in the acquisition, development, exploration, and production of oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquid (“NGL”) reserves. The Company’s oil and natural gas properties are located primarily in Karnes County and the Giddings area in South Texas where the Company targets the Eagle Ford Shale and Austin Chalk formations. Magnolia’s objective is to generate stock market value over the long-term through consistent organic production growth, high full cycle operating margins, an efficient capital program with short economic paybacks, significant free cash flow after capital expenditures, and effective reinvestment of free cash flow.

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim financial reporting. Accordingly, certain disclosures normally included in an Annual Report on Form 10-K have been omitted. The consolidated financial statements and related notes included in this Quarterly Report should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2021 (the “2021 Form 10-K”). Except as disclosed herein, there have been no material changes to the information disclosed in the notes to the consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s 2021 Form 10-K.

In the opinion of management, all normal, recurring adjustments and accruals considered necessary to present fairly, in all material respects, the Company’s interim financial results have been included. Operating results for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of expected results for the full year.

Certain reclassifications of prior period financial statements have been made to conform to current reporting practices. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries after elimination of intercompany transactions and balances. The Company’s interests in oil and natural gas exploration and production ventures and partnerships are proportionately consolidated. The Company reflects a noncontrolling interest representing primarily the interest owned by the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders through their ownership of Magnolia LLC Units in the consolidated financial statements. The noncontrolling interest is presented as a component of equity. See Note 11—Stockholders’ Equity for further discussion of the noncontrolling interest.

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
    
As of March 31, 2022, the Company’s significant accounting policies are consistent with those discussed in Note 1—Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies of its consolidated financial statements contained in the Company’s 2021 Form 10-K.

3. Revenue Recognition

Magnolia’s revenues include the sale of crude oil, natural gas, and NGLs. The Company has concluded that disaggregating revenue by product type appropriately depicts how the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows are affected by economic factors and has reflected this disaggregation of revenue on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations for all periods presented. The Company’s receivables consist mainly of trade receivables from commodity sales and joint interest billings due from owners on properties the Company operates. Receivables from contracts with customers totaled $151.1 million as of March 31, 2022 and $125.1 million as of December 31, 2021. For further detail regarding the Company’s revenue recognition policies, please refer to Note 1—Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies of the consolidated financial statements contained in the Company’s 2021 Form 10-K.

4. Derivative Instruments

The Company had settled all of its natural gas costless collar derivative contracts by September 30, 2021. From September 30, 2020 to September 30, 2021, Magnolia utilized natural gas costless collars to reduce its exposure to price volatility for a portion of its natural gas production volumes. The Company’s policies do not permit the use of derivative instruments for speculative purposes. Under the Company’s costless collar contracts, each collar had an established floor price and ceiling price. When the settlement price was below the floor price, the counterparty was required to make a payment to the Company and when the settlement price was above the ceiling price, the Company was required to make a payment to the counterparty.

The Company has elected not to designate any of its derivative instruments as hedging instruments. Accordingly, changes in the fair value of the Company’s derivative instruments were recorded immediately to earnings as “Loss on derivatives, net” on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations.

The following table summarizes the effects of derivative instruments on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021:

Three Months Ended

Derivative settlements, realized (loss)$ $ 
Unrealized (loss) on derivatives (482)
(Loss) on derivatives, net$ $(482)

The Company had no outstanding derivative contracts in place as of March 31, 2022.

5. Fair Value Measurements

Certain of the Company’s assets and liabilities are carried at fair value and measured either on a recurring or nonrecurring basis. The Company’s fair value measurements are based either on actual market data or assumptions that other market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability in an orderly transaction, using the valuation hierarchy prescribed by GAAP under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820.

The three levels of the fair value hierarchy under ASC 820 are as follows:

Level 1 - Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical investments at the measurement date are used.

Level 2 - Pricing inputs are other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the investment, either directly or indirectly. Level 2 pricing inputs include quoted prices for similar investments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar investments in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the investment, and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.

Level 3 - Pricing inputs are unobservable and include situations where there is little, if any, market activity for the investment. The inputs used in determination of fair value require significant judgment and estimation.

Recurring Fair Value Measurements

Debt Obligations

The carrying value and fair value of the financial instrument that is not carried at fair value in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 is as follows:
March 31, 2022December 31, 2021
(In thousands)Carrying Value Fair ValueCarrying Value Fair Value
 Long-term debt$388,647 $407,460 $388,087 $411,500 
The fair value of the 2026 Senior Notes at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 is based on unadjusted quoted prices in an active market, which is considered a Level 1 input in the fair value hierarchy.

7


The Company has other financial instruments consisting primarily of receivables, payables, and other current assets and liabilities that approximate fair value due to the nature of the instruments and their relatively short maturities. Non-financial assets and liabilities initially measured at fair value include assets acquired and liabilities assumed in business combinations and asset retirement obligations.

Certain of the Company’s assets and liabilities are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis. Specifically, stock based compensation is not measured at fair value on an ongoing basis but is subject to fair value calculations in certain circumstances. For further detail, see Note 12—Stock Based Compensation in the Notes to the Company’s consolidated financial statements. There were no other nonrecurring fair value measurements as of March 31, 2022 or December 31, 2021.

6. Intangible Assets

Non-Compete Agreement

On July 31, 2018 (the “Closing Date”), the Company and EnerVest, separate and apart from the Business Combination, entered into the Non-Compete, which prohibited EnerVest and certain of its affiliates from competing with the Company in the Eagle Ford Shale (the “Market Area”) until July 31, 2022 (“Prohibited Period End Date”). In January 2021, the Company amended the Non-Compete such that, rather than delivering an aggregate of 4.0 million shares of Class A Common Stock upon the two and one-half year and the four year anniversaries of the Closing Date, the Company would deliver (i) the cash value of approximately 2.0 million shares of Class A Common Stock and approximately 0.4 million shares of Class A Common Stock on the two and one-half year anniversary of the Closing Date and (ii) an aggregate of 1.6 million shares of Class A Common Stock on the four year anniversary of the Closing Date, in each case subject to the terms and conditions of the Non-Compete. On February 1, 2021, as consideration for compliance with the Non-Compete, the Company paid $17.2 million in cash and issued 0.4 million shares of Class A Common Stock.

On June 30, 2021, the Company amended the Non-Compete Prohibited Period End Date to terminate on June 30, 2021 and paid $24.9 million in cash in lieu of delivering the remaining 1.6 million shares of Class A Common Stock (the “Second Non-Compete Amendment”). The Second Non-Compete Amendment resulted in the Company accelerating the amortization of the remaining intangible assets. The Company includes the amortization in “Amortization of intangible assets” on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations.
7. Other Current Liabilities

Credit Facility

In connection with the consummation of the Business Combination, the RBL Facility was entered into by and among Magnolia Operating, as borrower, Magnolia Intermediate, as its holding company, the banks, financial institutions, and other lending institutions from time to time party thereto, as lenders, the other parties from time to time party thereto, and Citibank, N.A., as
8


administrative agent, collateral agent, issuing bank, and swingline lender, providing for maximum commitments in an aggregate principal amount of $1.0 billion with a letter of credit facility with a $100.0 million sublimit. The RBL Facility is guaranteed by certain parent companies and subsidiaries of Magnolia LLC and is collateralized by certain of Magnolia Operating’s oil and natural gas properties.

On February 16, 2022, Magnolia Operating, as borrower, amended and restated the RBL Facility (“Amended and Restated RBL Facility”) in its entirety, providing for maximum commitments in an aggregate principal amount of $1.0 billion with a letter of credit facility with a $50.0 million sublimit, with an initial borrowing base of $450.0 million. The Amended and Restated RBL Facility matures in February 2026.

Borrowings under the Amended and Restated RBL Facility bear interest, at Magnolia Operating’s option, at a rate per annum equal to either the term SOFR rate or the alternative base rate plus the applicable margin. Additionally, Magnolia Operating is required to pay a commitment fee quarterly in arrears in respect of unused commitments under the Amended and Restated RBL Facility. The applicable margin and the commitment fee rate are calculated based upon the utilization levels of the Amended and Restated RBL Facility as a percentage of unused lender commitments then in effect.

The Amended and Restated RBL Facility contains certain affirmative and negative covenants customary for financings of this type, including compliance with a leverage ratio of less than 3.50 to 1.00 and a current ratio of greater than 1.00 to 1.00. As of March 31, 2022, the Company was in compliance with all covenants under the Amended and Restated RBL Facility. The Company incurred approximately $5.6 million of lender and transaction fees related to the modification of which $5.2 million were recorded as deferred financing costs and will be amortized prospectively over the remaining term of the Amended and Restated RBL Facility and $0.4 million of which were expensed and are reflected in “Interest expense, net” on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022.

Deferred financing costs in connection with the Amended and Restated RBL Facility are amortized on a straight-line basis over a period of four years from February 2022 to February 2026 and included in “Interest expense, net” in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations. The Company recognized interest expense related to the Amended and Restated RBL Facility and the RBL facility, as applicable, of $2.8 million and $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The unamortized portion of the deferred financing costs is included in “Deferred financing costs, net” on the accompanying consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2022.

The Company did not have any outstanding borrowings under the Amended and Restated RBL Facility as of March 31, 2022.

2026 Senior Notes

On July 31, 2018, the Issuers issued and sold $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of 2026 Senior Notes in a private placement under Rule 144A and Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The 2026 Senior Notes were issued under the Indenture, dated as of July 31, 2018 (the “Indenture”), by and among the Issuers and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as trustee. The 2026 Senior Notes are guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by the Company, Magnolia Operating, and Magnolia Intermediate and may be guaranteed by certain future subsidiaries of the Company. The 2026 Senior Notes will mature on August 1, 2026 and bear interest at the rate of 6.0% per annum.

On April 5, 2021, the terms of the Indenture were amended to modify, among other things, the criteria used by the Company to make Restricted Payments (as defined in the Indenture). The amendment to the Indenture was accounted for as a debt modification. Costs incurred with third parties directly related to the modification were expensed as incurred. The Company incurred approximately $1.1 million of transaction fees in the second quarter of 2021 related to the modification which were expensed. The Company also paid $5.0 million in fees to holders of the 2026 Senior Notes, which fees are recorded as deferred financing costs and amortized using the new effective interest rate applied prospectively over the remaining term of the 2026 Senior Notes.

As of March 31, 2022, the Company had incurred and capitalized a total of $16.8 million of deferred financing costs related to the issuance of, and the amendment to the Indenture governing, the 2026 Senior Notes. These costs are amortized using the effective interest method over the term of the 2026 Senior Notes and are included in “Interest expense, net” in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations. The unamortized portion of the deferred financing costs is included as a reduction to the carrying value of the 2026 Senior Notes, which has been recorded as “Long-term debt, net” on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2022. The Company recognized interest expense related to the 2026 Senior Notes of $6.6 million and $6.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

9


At any time prior to August 1, 2022, the Issuers may, on any one or more occasions, redeem all or a part of the 2026 Senior Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 2026 Senior Notes redeemed, plus a “make whole” premium on accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the date of redemption. After August 1, 2022, the Issuers may redeem all or a part of the 2026 Senior Notes based on principal plus a set premium, as set forth in the Indenture, including any accrued and unpaid interest.

9. Commitments and Contingencies

Legal Matters

From time to time, the Company is or may become involved in litigation in the ordinary course of business.

Certain of the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders and EnerVest Energy Institutional Fund XIV-C, L.P. (collectively the “Co-Defendants”) and the Company have been named as defendants in a lawsuit where the plaintiffs claim to be entitled to a minority working interest in certain Karnes County Assets. The litigation is in the pre-trial stage. The exposure related to this litigation is currently not reasonably estimable. The Co-Defendants retained all such liability in connection with the Business Combination.

A mineral owner in a Magnolia operated well in Karnes County, Texas filed a complaint with the Texas Railroad Commission (the “Commission”) challenging the validity of the permit to drill such well by questioning the long-standing process by which the Commission granted the permit. After the Commission affirmed the granting of the permit, and after judicial review of the Commission’s order by the 53rd Judicial District Court Travis County, Texas (the “District Court”), the District Court reversed and remanded the Commission’s order. The Commission and Magnolia have appealed the District Court’s judgment to the Third Court of Appeals in Austin, Texas.

At March 31, 2022, the Company does not believe the outcome of any such disputes or legal actions will have a material effect on its consolidated statements of operations, balance sheet, or cash flows. No amounts were accrued with respect to outstanding litigation at March 31, 2022 or March 31, 2021.

Environmental Matters

The Company, as an owner or lessee and operator of oil and natural gas properties, is subject to various federal, state, and local laws and regulations relating to discharge of materials into, and the protection of, the environment. These laws and regulations may, among other things, impose liability on a lessee under an oil and natural gas lease for the cost of pollution clean-up resulting from operations and subject the lessee to liability for pollution damages. In some instances, the Company may be directed to suspend or cease operations in an affected area. The Company maintains insurance coverage, which it believes is customary in the industry, although the Company is not fully insured against all environmental risks.

Risks and Uncertainties 

The Company’s revenue, profitability, and future growth are substantially dependent upon the prevailing and future prices for oil and natural gas, which depend on numerous factors beyond the Company’s control such as overall oil and natural gas production and inventories in relevant markets, economic conditions, the global political environment, regulatory developments, and competition from other energy sources. Oil and natural gas prices historically have been volatile and may be subject to significant fluctuations in the future.

The coronavirus disease 2019 (“COVID-19”) pandemic and related economic repercussions have created significant volatility, uncertainty, and turmoil in the oil and natural gas industry. While oil and natural gas prices increased in 2021 and 2022, demand and pricing may again decline if there is a resurgence of the outbreak across the U.S. or other locations across the world or as a result of any related social distancing guidelines, travel restrictions, and stay-at-home orders. The extent of any further impact of the pandemic, including the emergence and spread of variant strains of COVID-19, on the Company’s industry and business cannot be reasonably predicted at this time.

10. Income Taxes

The Company’s income tax provision consists of the following components:

Three Months Ended
 (In thousands)March 31, 2022March 31, 2021
Current:
Federal$16,784 $ 
State1,316 399 
 18,100 399 
Deferred:

Income tax expense$18,100 $399 

The Company is subject to U.S. federal income tax, margin tax in the state of Texas, and Louisiana corporate income tax. The Company estimates its annual effective tax rate in recording its quarterly provision for income taxes in the various jurisdictions in which it operates. The Company’s effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 was 8.0% and 0.4%, respectively. As a result of impairments in the first quarter of 2020, the Company established full valuation allowances on the federal and state deferred tax assets, which resulted in additional differences between the effective tax rate and the statutory rate as of March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021. The primary differences between the annual effective tax rate and the statutory rate of 21.0% are income attributable to noncontrolling interest, state taxes, and valuation allowances.

As of March 31, 2022, the Company did not have an accrued liability for uncertain tax positions and does not anticipate recognition of any significant liabilities for uncertain tax positions during the next 12 months. For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, no amounts were incurred for income tax uncertainties or interest and penalties. Currently, the Company is not aware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals, or a material deviation from its position. The Company’s tax years since its formation remain subject to possible income tax examinations by its major taxing authorities for all periods.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders redeemed 9.7 million Magnolia LLC Units (and a corresponding number of shares of Class B Common Stock) for an equivalent number of shares of Class A Common Stock and subsequently sold these shares to the public. Magnolia did not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares of Class A Common Stock by the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders. The redemption and exchange of these Magnolia LLC Units created additional tax basis in Magnolia LLC. There was no net tax impact as the Company recorded a full valuation allowance.

As of March 31, 2022, the Company’s net deferred tax asset was $204.6 million. Management assessed whether it is more-likely-than-not that it will generate sufficient taxable income to realize its deferred income tax assets, including the investment in partnership and net operating loss carryforwards. In making this determination, the Company considered all available positive and negative evidence and made certain assumptions. The Company considered, among other things, the overall business environment, its historical earnings and losses, current industry trends, and its outlook for future years. As of March 31, 2022, the Company assessed the realizability of the deferred tax assets and recorded a full valuation allowance of $204.6 million.

As commodity prices have improved during 2021 and 2022, Magnolia has begun to sustain a level of increased profitability such that, net of its net operating loss, Magnolia is beginning to project modest taxable income. Should this continue, increased weight will be given to positive operating results, along with projections of future taxable income, in determining whether future taxable income will be sufficient to provide for realization of the Company’s deferred tax assets, and if so, this new evidence may result in a change in estimate of the Company’s valuation allowance in the next 12 months.

11. Stockholders’ Equity

Class A Common Stock

At March 31, 2022, there were 203.8 million shares of Class A Common Stock issued and 187.5 million shares of Class A Common Stock outstanding. The holders of Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock vote together as a single class on all matters and are entitled one vote for each share held. There is no cumulative voting with respect to the election of directors, which results in the holders of more than 50% of the Company’s outstanding common shares being able to elect all of the directors, subject to
11


voting obligations under the Stockholder Agreement. In the event of a liquidation, dissolution, or winding up of the Company, the holders of the Class A Common Stock are entitled to share ratably in all assets remaining available for distribution to them after payment of liabilities and after provision is made for each class of stock, if any, having preference over the common stock. The holders of the Class A Common Stock have no preemptive or other subscription rights, and there are no sinking fund provisions applicable to such shares.

Class B Common Stock

At March 31, 2022, there were 35.6 million shares of Class B Common Stock issued and outstanding. Holders of Class B Common Stock vote together as a single class with holders of Class A Common Stock on all matters properly submitted to a vote of the stockholders. The holders of Class B Common Stock generally have the right to exchange all or a portion of their shares of Class B Common Stock, together with an equal number of Magnolia LLC Units, for the same number of shares of Class A Common Stock or, at Magnolia LLC’s option, an equivalent amount of cash. Upon the future redemption or exchange of Magnolia LLC Units held by any holder of Class B Common Stock, a corresponding number of shares of Class B Common Stock held by such holder of Class B Common Stock will be canceled. In the event of a liquidation, dissolution, or winding up of Magnolia LLC, the holders of the Class B Common Stock, through their ownership of Magnolia LLC Units, are entitled to share ratably in all assets remaining available for distribution to them after payment of liabilities and after provision is made for each class of units of Magnolia LLC, if any, having preference over the common units. The holders of the Class B Common Stock have no preemptive or other subscription rights, and there are no sinking fund provisions applicable to such shares.

Share Repurchases

The Company’s board of directors has authorized a share repurchase program of up to 30.0 million shares of Class A Common Stock. The program does not require purchases to be made within a particular time frame. As of March 31, 2022, the Company had repurchased 15.7 million shares under the program at a cost of $197.9 million.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company also repurchased 0.6 million shares of Class A Common Stock for $11.6 million from EnerVest Energy Institutional Fund XIV-C, L.P. outside of the share repurchase program.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022 Magnolia LLC repurchased and subsequently canceled 3.9 million Magnolia LLC Units with an equal number of shares of corresponding Class B Common Stock for $84.7 million of cash consideration (the “Class B Common Stock Repurchases”). During the same period, the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders redeemed 9.7 million Magnolia LLC Units (and a corresponding number of shares of Class B Common Stock) for an equivalent number of shares of Class A Common Stock and subsequently sold these shares to the public.

During the three months ended March 31, 2021 Magnolia LLC repurchased and subsequently canceled 5.0 million Magnolia LLC Units with an equal number of shares of corresponding Class B Common Stock for $50.8 million of cash consideration (the “Class B Common Stock Repurchases”). During the same period, the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders redeemed 14.2 million Magnolia LLC Units (and a corresponding number of shares of Class B Common Stock) for an equivalent number of shares of Class A Common Stock and subsequently sold these shares to the public.

Magnolia did not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares of Class A Common Stock by the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders. Magnolia funded the Class B Common Stock Repurchases with cash on hand.

Dividends and Distributions

Distributions

On February 3, 2022, Magnolia LLC declared a cash distribution of $0.20 per Magnolia LLC Unit totaling $45.9 million, of which $37.3 million was distributed to the Company and $8.6 million was distributed to the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders.

On August 2, 2021, Magnolia LLC declared a cash distribution of $0.08 per Magnolia LLC Unit totaling $19.0 million, of which $14.2 million was distributed to the Company and $4.8 million was distributed to the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders.

The distributions to the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders were recorded as a reduction of noncontrolling interest on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021.
12



Dividends

On February 3, 2022, the Company’s board of directors declared a semi-annual cash dividend of $0.20 per share of Class A Common Stock totaling approximately $37.3 million. The dividend was paid on March 1, 2022 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on February 14, 2022.

On August 2, 2021, the Company’s board of directors declared a semi-annual interim cash dividend of $0.08 per share of Class A Common Stock totaling approximately $14.2 million. The dividend was paid on September 1, 2021 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 12, 2021.

Dividends in excess of retained earnings are recorded as a reduction of additional paid-in capital. The $37.3 million and $14.2 million dividends declared during the first quarter of 2022 and the third quarter of 2021, respectively, were recorded as a reduction of additional paid-in capital on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021.

Noncontrolling Interest

Noncontrolling interest in Magnolia’s consolidated subsidiaries includes amounts attributable to Magnolia LLC Units that were issued to the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders in connection with the Business Combination. The noncontrolling interest percentage is affected by various equity transactions such as issuances and repurchases of Class A Common Stock, the exchange of Class B Common Stock (and corresponding Magnolia LLC Units) for Class A Common Stock, or the cancellation of Class B Common Stock (and corresponding Magnolia LLC Units). As of March 31, 2022, Magnolia owned approximately 84.0% of the interest in Magnolia LLC and the noncontrolling interest was approximately 16.0%.

In the first quarter of 2019, Magnolia Operating formed Highlander Oil & Gas Holdings LLC (“Highlander”) as a joint venture whereby MGY Louisiana LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Magnolia Operating, holds approximately 84.7% of the units of Highlander, with the remaining 15.3% attributable to noncontrolling interest.

12. Stock Based Compensation

On October 8, 2018, the Company’s board of directors adopted the “Magnolia Oil & Gas Corporation Long Term Incentive Plan” (the “Plan”), effective as of July 17, 2018. A total of 16.8 million shares of Class A Common Stock have been authorized for issuance under the Plan as of March 31, 2022. The Company grants stock based compensation awards in the form of restricted stock units (“RSU”), performance stock units (“PSU”), and performance restricted stock units (“PRSU”) to eligible employees and directors to enhance the Company and its affiliates’ ability to attract, retain, and motivate persons who make important contributions to the Company and its affiliates by providing these individuals with equity ownership opportunities. Shares issued as a result of awards granted under the Plan are generally new shares of Class A Common Stock.

Stock based compensation expense is recognized net of forfeitures within “General and administrative expenses” and “Lease operating expenses” on the consolidated statements of operations and was $2.9 million and $2.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The Company has elected to account for forfeitures of awards granted under the Plan as they occur in determining compensation expense.

The following table presents a summary of Magnolia’s unvested RSU, PSU, and PRSU activity for the three months ended March 31, 2022.

13


Restricted Stock Units

The Company grants service-based RSU awards to employees, which generally vest ratably over a three-year or four-year service period, and to non-employee directors, which vest in full after one year. RSUs represent the right to receive shares of Class A Common Stock at the end of the vesting period equal to the number of RSUs that vest. RSUs are subject to restrictions on transfer and are generally subject to a risk of forfeiture if the award recipient ceases to be an employee or director of the Company prior to vesting of the award. Compensation expense for the service-based RSU awards is based upon the grant date market value of the award and such costs are recorded on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period for each separately vesting portion of the award, as if the award was, in-substance, multiple awards. The aggregate fair value of RSUs that vested during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 was $7.9 million and $4.0 million, respectively. Unrecognized compensation expense related to unvested RSUs as of March 31, 2022 was $9.9 million, which the Company expects to recognize over a weighted average period of 2.8 years.

Performance Stock Units and Performance Restricted Stock Units

The Company grants PRSUs to certain employees. Each PRSU represents the contingent right to receive one share of Class A Common Stock once the PRSU is both vested and earned. PRSUs generally vest either ratably over a three-year service period or at the end of a three-year service period, in each case, subject to the recipient’s continued employment or service through each applicable vesting date. Each PRSU is earned based on whether Magnolia’s stock price achieves a target average stock price for any 20 consecutive trading days during the five-year performance period. If PRSUs are not earned by the end of the five-year performance period (“Performance Condition”), the PRSUs will be forfeited and no shares of Class A Common Stock will be issued, even if the vesting conditions have been met. Compensation expense for the PRSU awards is based upon grant date fair market value of the award, calculated using a Monte Carlo simulation, as presented below, and such costs are recorded on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period for each separately vesting portion of the award, as if the award was, in-substance, multiple awards, as applicable. The aggregate fair value of PRSU awards that vested during the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $4.8 million. Unrecognized compensation expense related to unvested PRSUs as of March 31, 2022 was $14.9 million, which the Company expects to recognize over a weighted average period of 2.6 years.

The Company grants PSUs to certain employees. Each PSU, to the extent earned, represents the contingent right to receive one share of Class A Common Stock and the awardee may earn between zero and 150% of the target number of PSUs granted based on the total shareholder return (“TSR”) of the Class A Common Stock relative to the TSR achieved by a specific industry peer group over a three-year performance period, the last day of which is also the vesting date. In addition to the TSR conditions, vesting of the PSUs is subject to the awardee’s continued employment through the date of settlement of the PSUs, which will occur within 60 days following the end of the performance period. The aggregate fair value of PSU awards that vested during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 was $5.5 million and $0.1 million, respectively. Unrecognized compensation expense related to unvested PSUs as of March 31, 2022 was $0.5 million, which the Company expects to recognize over a weighted average period of 0.8 years.

The grant date fair values of the PRSUs granted during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, were $9.7 million and $9.4 million, respectively. Since the Performance Condition for the PRSUs granted in 2022 and 2021 were met on March 28, 2022 and March 17, 2021, respectively, the fair value of the PRSUs granted after the Performance Condition were met were based upon the grant date market value of the award. The fair values of the awards granted prior to the date the Performance Condition was met were determined using a Monte Carlo simulation. The following table summarizes the Monte Carlo simulation assumptions used to calculate the grant date fair value of the PRSUs in 2022 and 2021.

13. Earnings Per Share

The Company’s unvested share-based payment awards that contain nonforfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents (whether paid or unpaid) are deemed participating securities, and therefore dividends and net income allocated to such awards have been deducted from earnings in computing basic and diluted net income per share under the two-class method. Diluted net income per share attributable to common stockholders is calculated under both the two-class method and the treasury stock method and the more dilutive of the two calculations is presented.

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company excluded 80.3 million weighted average shares of Class A Common Stock issuable upon the exchange of Class B Common Stock (and corresponding Magnolia LLC Units), as the effect was anti-dilutive.

14. Related Party Transactions

As of March 31, 2022, EnerVest Energy Institutional Fund XIV-A, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, which is part of the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders, held more than 10% of the Company’s common stock and qualified as a principal owner of the Company, as defined in ASC 850, “Related Party Disclosures.”

Distributions

On February 3, 2022, Magnolia LLC declared a cash distribution of $0.20 per Magnolia LLC Unit totaling $45.9 million, of which $5.7 million was distributed to EnerVest Energy Institutional Fund XIV-A, L.P.

Class B Common Stock Repurchases and Redemptions

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, EnerVest Energy Institutional Fund XIV-A, L.P. received $56.1 million in cash and surrendered 2.6 million Magnolia LLC Units with an equal number of shares of corresponding Class B Common Stock. EnerVest Energy Institutional Fund XIV-A, L.P. also redeemed 6.5 million Magnolia LLC Units (and a corresponding number of shares of Class B Common Stock) for an equivalent number of shares of Class A Common Stock, which were subsequently sold to the public.

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, EnerVest Energy Institutional Fund XIV-A, L.P. received $33.6 million in cash and surrendered 3.3 million Magnolia LLC Units with an equal number of shares of corresponding Class B Common Stock. EnerVest Energy Institutional Fund XIV-A, L.P. also redeemed 9.4 million Magnolia LLC Units (and a corresponding number of shares of Class B Common Stock) for an equivalent number of shares of Class A Common Stock, which were subsequently sold to the public.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, Magnolia LLC subsequently canceled the surrendered Magnolia LLC Units and a corresponding number of shares of Class B Common Stock. Magnolia did not receive any proceeds from the sales of shares of Class A Common Stock by EnerVest Energy Institutional Fund XIV-A, L.P.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations should be read in conjunction with the Company’s unaudited consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto.

Overview 

Magnolia Oil & Gas Corporation (the “Company” or “Magnolia”) is an independent oil and natural gas company engaged in the acquisition, development, exploration, and production of oil, natural gas, and NGL reserves that operates in one reportable segment located in the United States. The Company's oil and natural gas properties are located primarily in Karnes County and the Giddings area in South Texas, where the Company primarily targets the Eagle Ford Shale and the Austin Chalk formations. Magnolia’s objective is to generate stock market value over the long term through consistent organic production growth, high full cycle operating margins, an efficient capital program with short economic paybacks, significant free cash flow after capital expenditures, and effective reinvestment of free cash flow.

Magnolia’s business model prioritizes free cash flow, financial stability, and prudent capital allocation, and is designed to withstand challenging environments. The Company’s ongoing plan is to spend within cash flow on drilling and completing wells while maintaining low leverage. As of March 31, 2022, Magnolia operated one rig exclusively in the Giddings area, and one rig in both the Karnes and Giddings areas. The Company is well positioned to reduce or increase operations given the significant flexibility within its capital program as the Company has no long-term service obligations.

COVID-19 Pandemic and Market Conditions Update

The COVID-19 pandemic and related economic repercussions have created significant volatility, uncertainty, and turmoil in the oil and natural gas industry. As the global economy continues to recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, economic indicators have continued to strengthen. However, the economy has begun to experience elevated inflation levels as a result of global supply and demand imbalances. Inflationary pressures and labor shortages could result in increases to our operating and capital costs.

Business Overview

As of March 31, 2022, Magnolia’s assets in South Texas included 43,518 gross (23,793 net) acres in the Karnes area, and 638,830 gross (447,415 net) acres in the Giddings area. As of March 31, 2022, Magnolia held an interest in approximately 2,020 gross (1,292 net) wells, with total production of 71.8 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day for the three months ended March 31, 2022. During the first quarter of 2022, Magnolia was running a two-rig program. One rig drilled multi-well development pads exclusively in the Giddings area. The second rig drilled a mix of wells in both the Karnes and Giddings areas.

Magnolia recognized net income attributable to Class A Common Stock of $166.0 million, or $0.90 per diluted common share, for the three months ended March 31, 2022. Magnolia recognized net income of $208.6 million, which includes a noncontrolling interest of $42.6 million related to the Magnolia LLC Units (and corresponding shares of Class B Common Stock) held by certain affiliates of EnerVest, for the three months ended March 31, 2022.

On February 3, 2022, the Company’s board of directors declared a semi-annual cash dividend of $0.20 per share of Class A Common Stock totaling approximately $37.3 million. The dividend was paid on March 1, 2022 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on February 14, 2022.

The Company’s board of directors has authorized a share repurchase program of up to 30.0 million shares. The program does not require purchases to be made within a particular time frame. As of March 31, 2022, the Company had repurchased 15.7 million shares under the program at a cost of $197.9 million.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company also repurchased 0.6 million shares of Class A Common Stock for $11.6 million from EnerVest Energy Institutional Fund XIV-C, L.P. outside of the share repurchase program.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, Magnolia LLC repurchased and subsequently canceled 3.9 million Magnolia LLC Units with an equal number of shares of corresponding Class B Common Stock for $84.7 million of cash consideration (the “Class B Common Stock Repurchases”). Magnolia funded the Class B Common Stock Repurchases with cash on hand. During the same period, the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders redeemed 9.7 million Magnolia LLC Units (and a corresponding number of shares of Class B Common Stock) for an equivalent number of shares of Class A Common Stock and subsequently sold these shares to the public. Magnolia did not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares of Class A Common Stock by the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders. As of March 31, 2022, Magnolia owned approximately 84.0% of the interest in Magnolia LLC and the noncontrolling interest was approximately 16.0%.

Results of Operations

Factors Affecting the Comparability of the Historical Financial Results

Magnolia’s historical financial condition and results of operations for the periods presented may not be comparable, either from period to period or going forward, as a result of the following factors:

On February 16, 2022, Magnolia Operating, as borrower, amended and restated the RBL Facility (“Amended and Restated RBL Facility”) in its entirety, which will now mature in February 2026.

During the second quarter of 2021, the Company amended the term of the Services Agreement to end on June 30, 2021.

During the second quarter of 2021, the Company amended the Non-Compete (the “Second Non-Compete Amendment”), which modified the term of the Non-Compete to end on June 30, 2021.

The 2026 Senior Notes issued under the Indenture, dated as of July 31, 2018, were amended on April 5, 2021. This debt modification included approximately $1.1 million of one-time transaction fees which were expensed and $5.0 million in fees paid to holders of the 2026 Senior Notes, which were reflected as deferred financing costs reducing Long-term debt and will be amortized over the remaining term of the 2026 Senior Notes.

As a result of the factors listed above, the historical results of operations and period-to-period comparisons of these results and certain financial data may not be comparable or indicative of future results.

Lease operating expenses are costs incurred in the operation of producing properties, including expenses for utilities, direct labor, water disposal, workover rigs, workover expenses, materials, and supplies. Lease operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $9.4 million, or $0.99 per boe, higher compared to the corresponding 2021 period, due to an increase in costs including operating and maintenance costs, workover activities and additional non-operated activities.
Gathering, transportation and processing costs are costs incurred to deliver oil, natural gas, and NGLs to the market. These expenses can vary based on the volume of oil, natural gas, and NGLs produced as well as the cost of commodity processing. The gathering, transportation and processing costs for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $5.6 million, or $0.62 per boe, higher than the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily due to increased natural gas production and higher prices.

Taxes other than income include production and ad valorem taxes. These taxes are based on rates primarily established by state and local taxing authorities. Production taxes are based on the market value of production. Ad valorem taxes are based on the fair market value of the mineral interests or business assets. Taxes other than income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $10.1 million, or $1.31 per boe, higher compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily due to an increase in oil, natural gas, and NGL revenues.

Exploration expenses are geological and geophysical costs that include seismic surveying costs, costs of unsuccessful exploratory dry wells, costs of expired or abandoned leases, and delay rentals. The exploration expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $3.5 million, or $0.49 per boe, higher than the three months ended March 31, 2021, due to increased seismic surveying costs.

Depreciation, depletion and amortization (“DD&A”) during the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $10.2 million, or $0.55 per boe, higher than the three months ended March 31, 2021 due to increased production and a higher depreciable cost basis.
20



For the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company did not recognize any amortization of intangible assets, because the intangible assets were fully amortized in June 2021 as a result of the termination of the Non-Compete. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company recognized $2.1 million of amortization of intangible assets.

General and administrative expenses during the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $3.3 million, or $0.99 per boe, lower than the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily driven by the reduction in costs due to the termination of the Services Agreement in June 2021, partially offset by higher corporate payroll expenses related to increased employee headcount.

Interest expense, net, during the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $2.1 million higher than the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily driven by the write-off of previously capitalized deferred financing costs in connection with the amendment to the RBL Facility during the first quarter of 2022.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Magnolia’s primary source of liquidity and capital has been its cash flows from operations. The Company’s primary uses of cash have been for acquisitions of oil and natural gas properties and related assets, development of the Company’s oil and natural gas properties, share repurchases, and general working capital needs.

The Company may also utilize borrowings under other various financing sources available to it, including its Amended and Restated RBL Facility and the issuance of equity or debt securities through public offerings or private placements, to fund Magnolia’s acquisitions and long-term liquidity needs. Magnolia’s ability to complete future offerings of equity or debt securities and the timing of these offerings will depend upon various factors, including prevailing market conditions and the Company’s financial condition. The Company anticipates its current cash balance, cash flows from operations, and its available sources of liquidity to be sufficient to meet the Company’s cash requirements.

As of March 31, 2022, the Company had $400.0 million of principal debt related to the 2026 Senior Notes outstanding and no outstanding borrowings related to the Amended and Restated RBL Facility. As of March 31, 2022, the Company had $796.4 million of liquidity comprised of the $450.0 million of borrowing base capacity of the Amended and Restated RBL Facility, and $346.4 million of cash and cash equivalents.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

At March 31, 2022, Magnolia had $346.4 million of cash and cash equivalents. The Company’s cash and cash equivalents are maintained with various financial institutions in the United States. Deposits with these institutions may exceed the amount of insurance provided on such deposits. However, the Company regularly monitors the financial stability of such financial institutions and believes that the Company is not exposed to any significant default risk.

Sources of Cash and Cash Equivalents

Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities

Operating cash flows are the Company’s primary source of liquidity and are impacted, in the short- and long-term, by oil and natural gas prices. The factors that determine operating cash flows are largely the same as those that affect net earnings, with the exception of certain non-cash expenses such as DD&A, the non-cash portion of exploration expenses, asset retirement obligations accretion, and deferred income tax expense.

Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $238.9 million and $118.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, cash provided by operating activities was positively impacted by increased oil, natural gas, and NGL prices, partially offset by higher operating expenses and income tax payments.

Uses of Cash and Cash Equivalents

Acquisitions

The Company made individually insignificant bolt-on acquisitions during each of the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021.

Additions to Oil and Natural Gas Properties

The following table sets forth the Company’s capital expenditures for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021:
Three Months Ended
(In thousands)March 31, 2022March 31, 2021
Drilling and completion$83,357 $38,850 
Leasehold acquisition costs873 1,316 
Total capital expenditures$84,230 $40,166 

During the first quarter of 2022, Magnolia was running a two-rig program. One rig drilled multi-well development pads in the Giddings area. The second rig drilled a mix of wells in both the Karnes and Giddings areas. The number of operated drilling rigs is largely dependent on commodity prices and the Company’s strategy of maintaining spending to accommodate the Company’s business model.

Capital Requirements

The Company’s board of directors has authorized a share repurchase program of up to 30.0 million shares of Class A Common Stock. The program does not require purchases to be made within a particular time frame and whether the Company undertakes these additional repurchases is ultimately subject to numerous considerations, market conditions, and other factors. During the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company repurchased 1.5 million and 2.0 million shares for a total cost of approximately $33.3 million and $20.3 million, respectively.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company also repurchased 0.6 million shares of Class A Common Stock for $11.6 million from EnerVest Energy Institutional Fund XIV-C, L.P. outside of the share repurchase program.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, Magnolia LLC repurchased and subsequently canceled 3.9 million and 5.0 million Magnolia LLC Units with an equal number of shares of corresponding Class B Common Stock for $84.7 million and $50.8 million of cash consideration, respectively. As of March 31, 2022, Magnolia owned approximately 84.0% of the interest in Magnolia LLC and the noncontrolling interest was approximately 16.0%.

In January 2021, the Company amended the Non-Compete such that, rather than delivering an aggregate of 4.0 million shares of Class A Common Stock upon the two and one-half year and the four year anniversaries of July 31, 2018 (the “Closing Date”), the Company would deliver (i) the cash value of approximately 2.0 million shares of Class A Common Stock and approximately 0.4 million shares of Class A Common Stock on the two and one-half year anniversary of the Closing Date and (ii) an aggregate of 1.6 million shares of Class A Common Stock on the four year anniversary of the Closing Date, in each case subject to the terms and conditions of the Non-Compete. On February 1, 2021, as consideration for compliance with the Non-Compete, the Company paid $17.2 million in cash and issued 0.4 million shares of Class A Common Stock. On June 30, 2021, as part of the Second Non-Compete Amendment, the Company paid $24.9 million in cash in lieu of delivering the remaining 1.6 million shares of Class A Common Stock.

On February 3, 2022, the Company’s board of directors declared a cash dividend of $0.20 per share of Class A Common Stock totaling $37.3 million, of which $37.2 million was paid as of March 31, 2022. In addition, $8.6 million was distributed to the Magnolia LLC Unit Holders. The amount and frequency of future dividends is subject to the discretion of the Company’s board of directors and primarily depends on earnings, capital expenditures, debt covenants, and various other factors.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
Interest Rate Risk
For variable rate debt, interest rate changes generally do not affect the fair market value of such debt, but do impact future earnings and cash flows, assuming other factors are held constant. The Company is subject to market risk exposure related to changes in interest rates on borrowings under the Amended and Restated RBL Facility. Interest on borrowings under the RBL Facility is based on the SOFR rate or alternative base rate plus an applicable margin as stated in the agreement governing the Amended and Restated RBL Facility. At March 31, 2022, the Company had no borrowings outstanding under the Amended and Restated RBL Facility.
23



Commodity Price Risk
Magnolia’s primary market risk exposure is to the prices it receives for its oil, natural gas, and NGL production. The prices the Company ultimately realizes for its oil, natural gas, and NGLs are based on a number of variables, including prevailing index prices attributable to the Company’s production and certain differentials to those index prices. Pricing for oil, natural gas, and NGLs has historically been volatile and unpredictable, and this volatility is expected to continue in the future. The prices the Company receives for production depend on factors outside of its control, including physical markets, supply and demand, financial markets, and national and international policies. A $1.00 per barrel increase (decrease) in the weighted average oil price for the three months ended March 31, 2022 would have increased (decreased) the Company’s revenues by approximately $11.3 million on an annualized basis and a $0.10 per Mcf increase (decrease) in the weighted average natural gas price for the three months ended March 31, 2022 would have increased (decreased) the Company’s revenues by approximately $5.0 million on an annualized basis.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

As required by Rule 13a-15(b) under the Exchange Act, Magnolia has evaluated, under the supervision and with the participation of its management, including Magnolia’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer, the effectiveness of the design and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of March 31, 2022. Based on such evaluation, Magnolia’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer have concluded that as of such date, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective. The Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed by it in reports that it files under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure and is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There were no changes in the system of internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) and Rule 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the quarter ended March 31, 2022 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

See Part I, Item 1, Note 9—Commitments and Contingencies to the consolidated financial statements, which is incorporated herein by reference.

From time to time, the Company is party to certain legal actions and claims arising in the ordinary course of business. While the outcome of these events cannot be predicted with certainty, management does not currently expect these matters to have a materially adverse effect on the financial position or results of operations of the Company.
Item 1A. Risk Factors

Please refer to Part I, Item 1A - Risk Factors of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, and Part I, Item 3 - Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
