Miller Energy Announces Its Fiscal Second Quarter 2014 Earnings and Operational Call and Reaffirms Its Hedge Position

HOUSTON, TX — (Marketwired) — 12/01/14 — (NYSE: MILL) („Miller“ or „the Company“) today announced that it will host a conference call and webcast at 9:00 a.m. ET on December 10, 2014 to discuss its financial and operational results for the three months ended October 31, 2014. Miller also reaffirmed its hedge position.

The Company–s senior management will hold the conference call and webcast to review Miller–s fiscal second quarter financial and operating results. On that call, management will also address the Company–s expected well-plan, hedge position and approach to managing through the current commodity environment as well as the Company–s previously-announced acquisition of Savant Alaska, LLC. Miller expects that acquisition to close before calendar year-end.

Given recent continued down movements in oil prices, the Company also reaffirms that it has more than 90% of its current oil production hedged. Miller has approximately 390MBbls hedged at $98.71 for the remainder of fiscal 2015, approximately 788MBbls at $95.36 for fiscal 2016 and approximately 233MBbls at $93.97 from May 2016 through December 2016. The Company also notes that it sells the majority of its gas under long-term contracts priced at approximately $7 per Mcf. As management will detail on its upcoming call, Miller additionally plans a lower-risk, more gas-focused drilling plan.

Based on its oil hedge profile, long-term gas contracts and lower-risk, more gas-focused drilling plan, the Company believes it has sufficient liquidity if oil prices remain at current levels for the foreseeable future.
