(2) 2Q 2022 net producing wells online included interests acquired from Momentum Minerals, which closed in July of 2022.

Chris Conoscenti, Chief Executive Officer of Sitio commented, “The third quarter was another impressive demonstration of the Sitio team’s focus on building long-term shareholder value by continuing large-scale consolidation of the highly-fragmented minerals and royalties space. We closed on our previously announced acquisition of approximately 12,200 NRAs in the Permian Basin from Momentum Minerals in July and we announced the all-stock merger with Brigham Minerals in September which will add over 85,000 NRAs to our portfolio, half of which are in the Permian Basin. In addition to executing on the largest minerals M&A transaction to date, our current asset base generated another quarter of compelling financial results, with increased per share metrics for Discretionary Cash Flow and dividends despite approximately 14% lower unhedged commodity prices than the second quarter on a per barrel of oil equivalent basis. Activity on our assets has been resilient and line-of-sight wells continue to be at the highest levels in our Company's history and operated by a balanced mix of well-capitalized public and private E&P companies.”

OPERATOR ACTIVITY AND MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS UPDATE

During the third quarter of 2022, the Company estimates that there were 4.1 net wells turned-in-line and that as of September 30, 2022, there were 26.7 net LOS wells comprised of 15.9 net spuds and 10.8 net permits on the Company's acreage, approximately the same number of net LOS wells as of June 30, 2022. Third quarter 2022 daily production volume averaged 17,990 Boe/d, which included a full quarter of production from assets acquired from Foundation Minerals and 66 days of production from assets acquired from Momentum Minerals. Pro forma for a full quarter of production from the assets acquired from Momentum Minerals, third quarter 2022 daily production averaged 18,571 Boe/d.

Sitio completed its acquisition of more than 12,200 NRAs from Momentum Minerals on July 26, 2022 and on September 6, 2022, announced signing of a definitive agreement for an all-stock merger with Brigham Minerals, which would materially enhance Sitio's scale to more than 259,000 NRAs, improve margins, reduce leverage and increase public float by nearly 6 times to approximately $2 billion. On October 11, 2022, Snapper Merger Sub I, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Sitio (“New Sitio”) filed a registration statement on Form S-4 related to the Brigham merger with the SEC. While the registration statement has not yet become effective and the information contained therein is subject to change, it provides important information about the transaction and the proposals to be considered by the shareholders of Brigham and Sitio. Sitio expects the transaction to close in 1Q 2023, subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory clearance and approvals by the shareholders of Sitio and Brigham.

FINANCIAL UPDATE

Sitio's third quarter 2022 average unhedged realized prices including all expected quality, transportation and demand adjustments were $93.81 per barrel of oil, $6.55 per Mcf of natural gas and $31.98 per barrel of natural gas liquids, for a total equivalent price of $65.71 per barrel of oil equivalent. During the third quarter, the Company received $2.7 million in net cash settlements for commodity derivative contracts and as a result, average hedged realized prices were $97.32 per barrel of oil, $6.46 per Mcf of natural gas and $31.98 per barrel of natural gas liquids, for a total equivalent price of $67.36 per barrel of oil equivalent. This represents an $8.92 per barrel of oil equivalent, or a 12% decrease relative to hedged realized prices for the three months ended June 30, 2022.

Consolidated net income for the third quarter of 2022 was $69.0 million, a decrease of 4% relative to the second quarter of 2022. Consolidated net income was positively impacted by a $32.0 million non-cash hedging gain from Sitio's commodity derivative contracts and partially offset by increased interest expense of $13.0 million and increased general and administrative expenses of $6.7 million, which were driven primarily by $4.8 million of costs related to one-time transactions and write off of financing costs. For the three months ended September 30, 2022, Adjusted EBITDA was $106.3 million, up 39% from the three months ended June 30, 2022 primarily due to increased production volumes and partially offset by lower commodity prices.

As of September 30, 2022, the Company had $677.0 million of total debt (comprised of $227.0 million drawn on its revolving credit facility and $450.0 million of senior unsecured notes) and liquidity of $83.8 million, including $10.8 million of cash on hand. In late September of 2022, the Company issued $450.0 million of senior unsecured notes and used the net proceeds to fully pay down its $425.0 million 364-day unsecured term loan and for general corporate purposes. As of September 30, 2022, Sitio was in compliance with all financial covenants of its outstanding debt instruments.

Non-GAAP financial measures

Adjusted EBITDA, Discretionary Cash Flow and Cash G&A are non-GAAP supplemental financial measures used by our management and by external users of our financial statements such as investors, research analysts and others to assess the financial performance of our assets and their ability to sustain dividends over the long term without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus (a) interest expense, (b) provisions for taxes, (c) depreciation, depletion and amortization, (d) non-cash share-based compensation expense, (e) impairment of oil and natural gas properties, (f) gains or losses on unsettled derivative instruments, (g) change in fair value of the warrant liability, (h) write off of deferred offering costs, (i) management fee to affiliates, (j) loss on debt extinguishment (k) one-time transaction costs and (l) write off of financing costs. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure determined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”).

We define Discretionary Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA, less cash interest expense and cash taxes.

We define Cash G&A as general and administrative expense less (a) non-cash share-based compensation expense (b) one-time transaction costs and (c) write off of financing costs.

These non-GAAP financial measures do not represent and should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP as measures of our financial performance. Non-GAAP financial measures have important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some but not all items that affect the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Our computations of Adjusted EBITDA, Discretionary Cash Flow and Cash G&A may differ from computations of similarly titled measures of other companies.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains statements that may constitute “forward-looking statements” for purposes of federal securities laws, including communication relating to proposed business combination transactions (the "Merger") between Brigham and Sitio. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements that refer to projections, forecasts, or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions. The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intends,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “seeks,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “prospects,” “guidance,” “outlook,” “should,” “would,” “will,” and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. These statements include, but are not limited to, statements about expected benefits of acquisitions as well as future plans, expectations and objectives for Sitio's operations, including statements about strategy, synergies, future operations, financial position, prospects, and plans. While forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and analyses made by us that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, whether actual results and developments will meet our expectations and predictions depend on a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results, performance, and financial condition to differ materially from our expectations and predictions. Additional information concerning these and other factors that may impact Sitio’s and Brigham’s expectations and projections can be found in Sitio’s periodic filings with the SEC, including Sitio’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, Part II, Item 1A “Risk Factors” in Sitio’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K and Brigham’s periodic filings with the SEC, including Brigham’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 and any subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K. Sitio’s and Brigham’s SEC filings are available publicly on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Any forward-looking statement made in this news release speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Factors or events that could cause actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible to predict all of them. Sitio undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future development, or otherwise, except as may be required by law.

No Offer or Solicitation

This communication is for informational purposes only and does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities or a solicitation of any vote or approval, in any jurisdiction, pursuant to the Merger or otherwise, nor shall there be any sale, issuance, exchange or transfer of the securities referred to in this document in any jurisdiction in contravention of applicable law. No offer of securities shall be made except by means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

Important Additional Information

The Merger will be submitted to Brigham’s stockholders for their consideration. Brigham, Sitio and New Sitio may also file other documents with the SEC regarding the Merger. After the registration statement has been declared effective by the SEC, a definitive consent solicitation statement/proxy statement/prospectus will be mailed to the shareholders of Brigham and Sitio. This document is not a substitute for the registration statement and consent solicitation statement/proxy statement/prospectus that New Sitio filed with the SEC or any other documents that Brigham, Sitio or New Sitio may file with the SEC or send to stockholders of Brigham or Sitio in connection with the Merger. INVESTORS AND STOCKHOLDERS OF BRIGHAM AND SITIO ARE URGED TO READ THE REGISTRATION STATEMENT AND THE CONSENT SOLICITATION STATEMENT/PROXY STATEMENT/PROSPECTUS AND ALL OTHER RELEVANT DOCUMENTS THAT ARE FILED OR WILL BE FILED WITH THE SEC, AS WELL AS ANY AMENDMENTS OR SUPPLEMENTS TO THESE DOCUMENTS, CAREFULLY AND IN THEIR ENTIRETY BECAUSE THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE MERGER AND RELATED MATTERS.
