Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2018 increased 96% compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017. This increase was driven by growth in sales volumes, combined with an improvement in realized oil price,



which was partially offset by a decrease in realized gas prices. The decreased gas price was primarily due to widening of differentials to the Colorado Interstate Gas index.
 
Lease operating expense for the three months ended June 30, 2018 increased due to the Company’s ongoing growth and expanding asset base. Elevated line pressures temporarily drove operating costs on a unit basis higher as the Company incurred incremental costs without the benefit of flush production from new wells.
 
The Company's 2018 second quarter net income totaled $49.6 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to a net income of $27.9 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in the year ago quarter. Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2018 was $107.7 million as compared to $55.9 million in the year ago quarter.

During the second quarter of 2018, SRC entered into an agreement to purchase leasehold acreage and associated production for $31 million. This transaction increases the Company's working interest in existing operations and planned wells. Following the 2018 second quarter end, SRC reached an agreement to trade approximately 2,500 net acres with an undisclosed party. These transactions further enhance the contiguous nature of the Company's acreage position.


Management Comment
Lynn A. Peterson, Chairman and CEO of SRC Energy Inc. commented, "As announced today by DCP Midstream, the Mewbourn 3 plant has been placed into service and is processing gas. This is the first of several significant, new natural gas processing plants that have been announced for the DJ Basin over the next few quarters leading to a near doubling of capacity and a bright future for the Basin. We now have line of sight on increased gas processing for several years and we look forward to a more stable operating environment. Despite the curtailed production during the first half of 2018 the Company’s capital expenditures have principally been funded by internally generated cash flows."

Concluding, Mr. Peterson added, "I would like to commend our field team for all of their hard work around the constraints associated with the lack of gas processing and our land team for the recent acreage transactions that have further enhanced SRC's acreage position"

All statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. The use of words such as "believes", "expects", "anticipates", "intends", "plans", "estimates", "should", "likely", “guidance” or similar expressions indicates a forward-looking statement. Forward-looking statements in the release relate to, among other things, the construction and impact of new midstream facilities in the DJ Basin. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties and are based on the beliefs and assumptions of management, and information currently available to management. The actual results could differ materially from a conclusion, forecast or projection in the forward-looking information. Certain material factors or assumptions were applied in drawing a conclusion or making a forecast or projection as reflected in the forward-looking information. The identification in this press release of factors that may affect the Company's future performance and the accuracy of forward-looking statements is meant to be illustrative and by no means exhaustive.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We define adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, as net income adjusted to exclude the impact of the items set forth in the table below. We exclude those items because they can vary substantially from company to company within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures, and the method by which the assets were acquired. We believe that adjusted EBITDA is widely used in our industry as a measure of operating performance and may also be used by investors to measure our ability to meet debt covenant requirements. The following table presents a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income, its nearest GAAP measure:
