Robert J. Anderson, President of Earthstone Energy, Inc., commented, The third quarter was a very busy and successful quarter for the Company. We achieved the highest quarterly production and Adjusted EBITDAX in our history despite the lowest realized oil prices out of the three quarters this year. We continue to operate our one-rig drilling program and complete wells in Reagan County with results that are in line with or exceed our expectations and type curves. We completed and announced a trade just after the quarter ended that not only increased our net production but gave us an increased acreage footprint in central Reagan County that will allow for greater operating efficiency as we plan for longer laterals and will greatly enhance surface operations. Lastly, our team worked tirelessly to sign and announce the proposed acquisition of nearly 21,000 net acres along with 11,200 Boe/day of net production in the northern Midland Basin. We expect to close in early 2019 after a shareholder vote.

Liquidity

As of September 30, 2018, we had $13.4 million in cash and $35.0 million of long-term debt outstanding under our credit facility with a current borrowing base of $225 million. In early November, 2018, our borrowing base was increased from $225 million to $275 million, increasing liquidity by $50 million.

Capital Expenditures

During the three months ended September 30, 2018, we incurred capital expenditures of approximately $37.3 million, on an accrual basis, primarily consisting of drilling and completion costs.

Litigation Settlement

On October 23, 2018, we entered into a Rule 11 Agreement and agreed in principle to settle pending litigation applicable to certain operations conducted by Bold Energy III LLC (Bold) preceding our acquisition of Bold in 2017. Based on managements current estimate, a $4.8 million expense has been accrued as litigation settlement expense as of September 30, 2018. While currently finalizing certain related agreements, we believe the settlement will allow for additional drilling locations with laterals approximating 10,000 feet, as well as acceleration of our development activities.

Hedging Update

As of September 30, 2018, we had hedged a total of 414 MBbls of remaining 2018 oil production at an average price of $54.05/Bbl and 610 MMBtu of remaining 2018 natural gas production at average price of $2.95/MMBbtu. Additionally, we had 243.8 MBbls of WTI Midland Argus Crude Oil Basis Swaps at -$1.90/Bbl and 92 MBbls of LLS Crude Oil Basis Swaps at +$6.35/Bbl remaining for 2018 oil production. Related to 2019 production, we had hedged a total of 1,624 MBbls at an average price of $58.95/Bbl, and we had 1,278 MBbls of WTI Midland Argus Crude Basis Swaps at -$6.39/Bbl and 365 MBbls of LLS Crude Oil Basis Swaps at +$4.50/Bbl. For 2020 production, we had hedged a total of 732 MBbls at an average price of $63.08/Bbl, and we had 732 MBbls of WTI Midland Argus Crude Oil Swaps at -$5.38/Bbl.

Earthstone Energy, Inc. Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measure Unaudited

I. Adjusted EBITDAX

The non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDAX (as defined below), as calculated by us below, is intended to provide readers with meaningful information that supplements our financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). Further, this non-GAAP measure should only be considered in conjunction with financial statements and disclosures prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP measures, such as net income or loss, operating income or loss or any other GAAP measure of financial position or results of operations. Adjusted EBITDAX is presented herein and reconciled from the GAAP measure of net income (loss) because of its wide acceptance by the investment community as a financial indicator.

We define Adjusted EBITDAX as net income (loss) plus, when applicable, accretion of asset retirement obligations; impairment expense; depletion, depreciation and amortization; interest expense, net; transaction costs; (gain) on sale of oil and gas properties; unrealized loss (gain) on derivatives; stock-based compensation; and income tax expense (benefit).

Our Adjusted EBITDAX measure provides additional information that may be used to better understand our operations. Adjusted EBITDAX is one of several metrics that we use as a supplemental financial measurement in the evaluation of our business and should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income (loss) as an indicator of operating performance. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDAX are significant components in understanding and assessing a companys financial performance, such as a companys cost of capital and tax structure, as well as the historic cost of depreciable and depletable assets. Adjusted EBITDAX, as used by us, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We believe that Adjusted EBITDAX is a widely followed measure of operating performance and is one of many metrics used by our management team and by other users of our consolidated financial statements. For example, Adjusted EBITDAX can be used to assess our operating performance and return on capital in comparison to other independent exploration and production companies without regard to financial or capital structure and to assess the financial performance of our assets and our company without regard to capital structure or historical cost basis.

The following table provides a reconciliation of Net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDAX for the periods indicated:
