Cautionary Information about Forward-Looking Statements
This Report on Form 10-Q (“Form 10-Q” or “this report”) contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). All statements included in this report, other than statements of historical facts, that address activities, conditions, events, or developments with respect to our financial condition, results of operations, business prospects or economic performance that we expect, believe, or anticipate will or may occur in the future, or that address plans and objectives of management for future operations, are forward-looking statements. The words “anticipate,” “assume,” “believe,” “budget,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “intend,” “pending,” “plan,” “potential,” “project,” “target,” “will,” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements appear throughout this report, and include statements about such matters as:
the impacts of the global COVID-19 pandemic (“Pandemic”) on us, our industry, our financial condition, and our results of operations;
the amount and nature of future capital expenditures and the availability of liquidity and capital resources to fund capital expenditures;
any changes to the borrowing base or aggregate lender commitments under our Sixth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, as amended (“Credit Agreement”);
our outlook on future crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids (also referred to throughout this report as “oil,” “gas,” and “NGLs,” respectively) prices, well costs, service costs, production costs, and general and administrative costs;
our drilling and completion activities and other exploration and development activities, our ability to obtain permits and governmental approvals, and plans by us, our joint development partners, and/or other third-party operators;
possible or expected acquisitions and divestitures, including the possible divestiture or farmout of, or joint development of, certain properties;
oil, gas, and NGL reserve estimates and estimates of both future net revenues and the present value of future net revenues associated with those reserve estimates;
our expected future production volumes, identified drilling locations, as well as drilling prospects, inventories, projects and programs;
cash flows, liquidity, interest and related debt service expenses, changes in our effective tax rate, and our ability to repay debt in the future;
business strategies and other plans and objectives for future operations, including plans for expansion and growth of operations or to defer capital investment, plans with respect to future dividend payments, and our outlook on our future financial condition or results of operations; and
other similar matters, such as those discussed in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in Part I, Item 2 of this report.
Our forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and analyses made by us in light of our experience and our perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments, and other factors that we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. These statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties, which may cause our actual results and performance to be materially different from any future results or performance expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause our financial condition, results of operations, business prospects or economic performance to differ from expectations include the factors discussed in the Risk Factors section in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 (“2020 Form 10-K”).
We caution you that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or performance may be materially different from those expressed or implied in forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements in this report speak only as of the filing of this report. Although we may from time to time voluntarily update our prior forward-looking statements, we disclaim any commitment to do so except as required by applicable securities laws.

SM ENERGY COMPANY AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)
Note 1 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Description of Operations
SM Energy Company, together with its consolidated subsidiaries (“SM Energy” or the “Company”), is an independent energy company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development, and production of oil, gas, and NGLs in the state of Texas.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information, the instructions to Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and Regulation S-X. These financial statements do not include all information and notes required by GAAP for annual financial statements. However, except as disclosed herein, there has been no material change in the information disclosed in the notes to the consolidated financial statements included in the 2020 Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation of interim financial information, have been included. Operating results for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of expected results for the full year. In connection with the preparation of the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company evaluated events subsequent to the balance sheet date of June 30, 2021, and through the filing of this report. Additionally, certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to current period presentation in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
Significant Accounting Policies
The significant accounting policies followed by the Company are set forth in Note 1 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in the 2020 Form 10-K and are supplemented by the notes to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included in this report. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the 2020 Form 10-K.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In March 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting (“ASU 2020-04”), and in January 2021, issued ASU No. 2021-01, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Scope (“ASU 2021-01”), to provide clarifying guidance regarding the scope of Topic 848. ASU 2020-04 was issued to provide optional guidance for a limited period of time to ease the potential burden in accounting for (or recognizing the effects of) reference rate reform on financial reporting. Generally, the guidance is to be applied as of any date from the beginning of an interim period that includes or is subsequent to March 12, 2020, or prospectively from a date within an interim period that includes or is subsequent to March 12, 2020, up to the date that the financial statements are available to be issued. ASU 2020-04 and ASU 2021-01 are effective for all entities through December 31, 2022. As of June 30, 2021, the Company has not elected to use the optional guidance and continues to evaluate the options provided by ASU 2020-04 and ASU 2021-01. Please refer to Note 5 - Long-Term Debt for discussion of the use of the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) in connection with borrowings under the Credit Agreement.
There are no other ASUs that would have a material effect on the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures that have been issued but not yet adopted by the Company as of June 30, 2021, or through the filing of this report.
Note 2 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers
The Company recognizes its share of revenue from the sale of produced oil, gas, and NGLs from its Midland Basin and South Texas assets. Oil, gas, and NGL production revenue presented within the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations (“accompanying statements of operations”) is reflective of the revenue generated from contracts with customers.

____________________________________________
Note: Amounts may not calculate due to rounding.
The Company recognizes oil, gas, and NGL production revenue at the point in time when custody and title (“control”) of the product transfers to the purchaser, which differs depending on the applicable contractual terms. Transfer of control drives the presentation of transportation, gathering, processing, and other post-production expenses (“fees and other deductions”) within the accompanying statements of operations. Fees and other deductions incurred by the Company prior to control transfer are recorded within the oil, gas, and NGL production expense line item on the accompanying statements of operations. When control is transferred at or near the wellhead, sales are based on a wellhead market price that is impacted by fees and other deductions incurred by the purchaser subsequent to the transfer of control. Please refer to Note 2 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers in the 2020 Form 10-K for more information regarding the types of contracts under which oil, gas, and NGL production revenue is generated.
Significant judgments made in applying the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, relate to the point in time when control transfers to purchasers in gas processing arrangements with midstream processors. The Company does not believe that significant judgments are required with respect to the determination of the transaction price, including amounts that represent variable consideration, as volume and price carry a low level of estimation uncertainty given the precision of volumetric measurements and the use of index pricing with generally predictable differentials. Accordingly, the Company does not consider estimates of variable consideration to be constrained.
The Company’s performance obligations arise upon the production of hydrocarbons from wells in which the Company has an ownership interest. The performance obligations are considered satisfied upon control transferring to a purchaser at the wellhead, inlet, or tailgate of the midstream processor’s processing facility, or other contractually specified delivery point. The time period between production and satisfaction of performance obligations is generally less than one day, therefore there are no material unsatisfied or partially unsatisfied performance obligations at the end of the reporting period.
Revenue is recorded in the month when performance obligations are satisfied. However, settlement statements from the purchasers of hydrocarbons and the related cash consideration are received 30 to 90 days after production has occurred. As a result, the Company must estimate the amount of production delivered to the customer and the consideration that will ultimately be received for sale of the product. Estimated revenue due to the Company is recorded within the accounts receivable line item on the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets (“accompanying balance sheets”) until payment is received. The accounts receivable balances from contracts with customers within the accompanying balance sheets as of June 30, 2021, and
10


December 31, 2020, were $173.3 million and $108.9 million, respectively. To estimate accounts receivable from contracts with customers, the Company uses knowledge of its properties, historical performance, contractual arrangements, index pricing, quality and transportation differentials, and other factors as the basis for these estimates. Differences between estimates and actual amounts received for product sales are recorded in the month that payment is received from the purchaser.
Note 3 - Equity
On June 17, 2020, the Company issued warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of approximately 5.9 million shares, or approximately five percent of its then outstanding common stock, at an exercise price of $0.01 per share (“Warrants”).
Upon issuance, the $21.5 million fair value of the Warrants was recorded in additional paid-in capital on the accompanying balance sheets, and was determined using a stochastic Monte Carlo simulation using geometric Brownian motion (“GBM Model”). The Company evaluated the Warrants under authoritative accounting guidance and determined that they should be classified as equity instruments, with no recurring fair value measurement required. There have been no changes to the initial carrying amount of the Warrants since issuance.
The Warrant Agreement, dated June 17, 2020 (“Warrant Agreement”), provides that the Warrants are exercisable any time from and after the Triggering Date, as subsequently defined, until June 30, 2023. The Triggering Date is defined by the Warrant Agreement as the first trading day following five consecutive trading days on which the product of the number of shares of common stock issued and outstanding on four of the five trading days multiplied by the closing price per share of common stock for each such trading day exceeds $1.0 billion (“Triggering Date”). The Warrants are indexed to the Company’s common stock and are required to be settled through physical settlement or net share settlement, if exercised. The Triggering Date occurred on January 15, 2021, and the Warrants became and will remain exercisable at the election of the holders until their expiration on June 30, 2023.
During the second quarter of 2021, the Company issued 5,918,089 shares of common stock as a result of the cashless exercise of 5,922,260 Warrants at a weighted-average share price of $15.45 per share, as determined under the terms of the Warrant Agreement. At the request of stockholders and pursuant to the Company’s obligations under the Warrant Agreement, a registration statement covering the resale of a majority of these shares was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on June 11, 2021.
Note 4 - Income Taxes
The provision for income taxes for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, and 2020, consisted of the following:

2021202020212020

Income tax benefit$162 $36,685 $56$135,693
Effective tax rate0.1 %29.1 % %21.3 %
Recorded income tax expense or benefit differs from the amount that would be provided by applying the statutory United States federal income tax rate to income or loss before income taxes. These differences primarily relate to the effect of state income taxes, excess tax benefits and deficiencies from stock-based compensation awards, tax limitations on the compensation of covered individuals, changes in valuation allowances, the cumulative impact of other smaller permanent differences, and can also reflect the cumulative effect of an enacted tax rate change, in the period of enactment, on the Company’s net deferred tax asset and liability balance. The quarterly rate and the resulting income tax benefit can also be affected by the proportional impacts of forecasted net income or loss and the correlative effect on the valuation allowance for each period presented, as reflected in the table above.
For all years before 2017, the Company is generally no longer subject to United States federal or state income tax examinations by tax authorities.

Credit Agreement
The Company’s Credit Agreement, which is scheduled to mature on September 28, 2023, provides for a senior secured revolving credit facility with a maximum loan amount of $2.5 billion. As of June 30, 2021, the borrowing base and aggregate lender commitments under the Credit Agreement were $1.1 billion. The next scheduled borrowing base redetermination date is October 1, 2021. On June 8, 2021, the Company entered into a sixth amendment (“Sixth Amendment”) to the Credit Agreement to amend certain definitions and covenants relating to the Company's ability to issue permitted refinancing debt and repurchase or redeem outstanding indebtedness to facilitate the Tender Offer and the 2022 Senior Notes Redemption, each as defined below.
Interest and commitment fees associated with the revolving credit facility are accrued based on a borrowing base utilization grid set forth in the Credit Agreement as presented in Note 5 - Long-Term Debt in the 2020 Form 10-K. At the Company’s election, borrowings under the Credit Agreement may be in the form of Eurodollar, Alternate Base Rate (“ABR”), or Swingline loans. Eurodollar loans accrue interest at LIBOR, plus the applicable margin from the utilization grid, and ABR and Swingline loans accrue interest at a market-based floating rate, plus the applicable margin from the utilization grid. Commitment fees are accrued on the unused portion of the aggregate lender commitment amount at rates from the utilization grid and are included in the interest expense line item on the accompanying statements of operations.
The Credit Agreement specifies that if LIBOR is no longer a widely used benchmark rate, or if it is no longer used for determining interest rates for loans in the United States, a replacement interest rate that fairly reflects the cost to the lenders of funding loans shall be established by the Administrative Agent, as defined in the Credit Agreement, in consultation with the Company. Please refer to Note 1 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies for discussion of FASB ASU 2020-04 and ASU 2021-01, which provides guidance related to reference rate reform.
The following table presents the outstanding balance, total amount of letters of credit outstanding, and available borrowing capacity under the Credit Agreement as of July 21, 2021, June 30, 2021, and December 31, 2020:

Note 6 - Commitments and Contingencies
Commitments
Other than those items discussed below, there have been no changes in commitments through the filing of this report that differ materially from those disclosed in the 2020 Form 10-K. Please refer to Note 6 - Commitments and Contingencies in the 2020 Form 10-K for additional discussion of the Company’s commitments.
Drilling Rig Service Contracts. During the first half of 2021, the Company amended certain of its drilling rig contracts resulting in the extension of contract terms. As of June 30, 2021, the Company’s drilling rig commitments totaled $16.1 million under contract terms extending through the second quarter of 2022. If all of these contracts were terminated as of June 30, 2021, the Company would avoid a portion of the contractual service commitments; however, the Company would be required to pay $9.7 million in early termination fees. No material expenses related to early termination or standby fees were incurred by the Company during the six months ended June 30, 2021, and the Company does not expect to incur material penalties with regard to its drilling rig contracts during the remainder of 2021.
Drilling and Completion Commitments. During the first half of 2021, the Company amended an agreement that includes minimum drilling and completion footage requirements on certain existing leases. If these minimum requirements are not satisfied by March 31, 2022, the Company will be required to pay liquidated damages based on the difference between the actual footage drilled and completed and the minimum requirements. As of June 30, 2021, the liquidated damages could range from zero to a maximum of $45.1 million, with the maximum exposure assuming no additional development activity occurred prior to March 31, 2022. As of the filing of this report, the Company expects to meet its obligations under this agreement.
Other Contracts. During the second quarter of 2021, the Company entered into an operating lease agreement with a total estimated obligation of $26.1 million and an initial term extending through the second quarter of 2033. As of the filing of this report, the Company expects to meet this commitment.
Contingencies
The Company is subject to litigation and claims arising in the ordinary course of business. The Company accrues for such items when a liability is both probable and the amount can be reasonably estimated. In the opinion of management, the anticipated results of any pending litigation and claims are not expected to have a material effect on the results of operations, the financial position, or the cash flows of the Company.
Note 7 - Compensation Plans
As of June 30, 2021, 3.8 million shares of common stock were available for grant under the Company’s Equity Incentive Compensation Plan (“Equity Plan”). The Company may also grant other types of long-term incentive-based awards, such as cash awards and performance-based cash awards to eligible employees under its compensation plan.
Performance Share Units
The Company has granted performance share units (“PSUs”) to eligible employees as part of its Equity Plan. The number of shares of the Company’s common stock issued to settle PSUs ranges from zero to two times the number of PSUs awarded and is determined based on certain criteria over a three-year performance period. PSUs generally vest on the third anniversary of the date of the grant or upon other triggering events as set forth in the Equity Plan.
For PSUs granted in 2018 and 2019, the settlement criteria include a combination of the Company’s Total Shareholder Return (“TSR”) relative to the TSR of certain peer companies and the Company’s cash return on total capital invested (“CRTCI”) relative to the CRTCI of certain peer companies over the associated three-year performance period. In addition to these performance criteria, the award agreements for these grants also stipulate that if the Company’s absolute TSR is negative over the three-year performance period, the maximum number of shares of common stock that can be issued to settle outstanding PSUs is capped at one times the number of PSUs granted on the award date, regardless of the Company’s TSR and CRTCI performance relative to its peer group. The fair values of the PSUs granted in 2018 and 2019 were measured on the applicable grant dates using the GBM Model, with the assumption that the associated CRTCI performance condition will be met at the target amount at the end of the respective performance periods. Compensation expense for PSUs is recognized within general and administrative expense and exploration expense over the vesting periods of the respective awards. As these awards depend on a combination of performance-based settlement criteria and market-based settlement criteria, compensation expense may be adjusted in future periods as the number of units expected to vest increases or decreases based on the Company’s expected CRTCI performance relative to the applicable peer companies.
The Company records compensation expense associated with the issuance of PSUs based on the fair value of the awards as of the date of grant. Total compensation expense recorded for PSUs was $1.3 million and $2.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021, and 2020, respectively, and $4.5 million and $5.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, and 2020,
15


respectively. As of June 30, 2021, there was $3.0 million of total unrecognized compensation expense related to non-vested PSU awards, which is being amortized through 2022. There were no material changes to the outstanding and non-vested PSUs during the six months ended June 30, 2021.
Employee Restricted Stock Units
The Company grants restricted stock units (“RSUs”) to eligible persons as part of its Equity Plan. Each RSU represents a right to receive one share of the Company’s common stock upon settlement of the award at the end of the specified vesting period. RSUs generally vest one-third of the total grant on each anniversary date of the grant over the applicable vesting period or upon other triggering events as set forth in the Equity Plan.
The Company records compensation expense associated with the issuance of RSUs based on the fair value of the awards as of the date of grant. The fair value of an RSU is equal to the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of the grant. Compensation expense for RSUs is recognized within general and administrative expense and exploration expense over the vesting periods of the respective awards. Total compensation expense recorded for employee RSUs was $2.1 million and $2.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021, and 2020, respectively, and $4.3 million and $5.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, and 2020, respectively. As of June 30, 2021, there was $10.1 million of total unrecognized compensation expense related to non-vested RSU awards, which is being amortized through 2023. There were no material changes to the outstanding and non-vested RSUs during the six months ended June 30, 2021.
Subsequent to June 30, 2021, the Company settled 349,328 RSUs upon the vesting of awards granted in previous years. The Company and all grant participants mutually agreed to net share settle a portion of the awards to cover income and payroll tax withholdings, as provided for in the Equity Plan and applicable award agreements. As a result, the Company issued 250,009 net shares of common stock upon settlement of the awards. The remaining 99,319 shares were withheld to satisfy income and payroll tax withholding obligations that occurred upon delivery of the shares underlying those RSUs.
Director Shares
During the second quarters of 2021, and 2020, the Company issued 57,795 and 267,576 shares, respectively, of its common stock to its non-employee directors under the Equity Plan. Shares issued during the second quarter of 2021 will fully vest on December 31, 2021. Shares issued during the second quarter of 2020 fully vested on December 31, 2020.
Employee Stock Purchase Plan
Under the Company’s Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“ESPP”), eligible employees may purchase shares of the Company’s common stock through payroll deductions of up to 15 percent of eligible compensation, ensuring that the accrual is no more than 2,500 shares per offering period and not in excess of $25,000 in value related to purchases for each calendar year. The purchase price of the stock is 85 percent of the lower of the fair market value of the stock on either the first or last day of the purchase period. The ESPP is intended to qualify as an “employee stock purchase plan” under Section 423 of the Internal Revenue Code. There were 252,665 and 297,013 shares issued under the ESPP during the second quarters of 2021, and 2020, respectively. Total proceeds to the Company for the issuance of these shares was $1.3 million and $947,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2021, and 2020, respectively. The fair value of ESPP grants is measured at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model.
Please refer to Note 7 - Compensation Plans in the 2020 Form 10-K for additional detail on the Company’s Equity Plan.
Note 8 - Fair Value Measurements
The Company follows fair value measurement accounting guidance for all assets and liabilities measured at fair value. This guidance defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Market or observable inputs are the preferred sources of values, followed by assumptions based on hypothetical transactions in the absence of market inputs. The fair value hierarchy for grouping these assets and liabilities is based on the significance level of the following inputs:
Level 1 – quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2 – quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model-derived valuations whose inputs are observable or whose significant value drivers are observable
Level 3 – significant inputs to the valuation model are unobservable.
