Section 8 – Other Events

Item 8.01 – Other Events

Denbury Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Denbury”) will be delaying the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2020 (the “Quarterly Report”), relying on the order issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 25, 2020 in SEC Release No. 34-88465 (the “SEC Order”) pursuant to the SEC’s authority under Section 36 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) granting exemptions from certain provisions of the Exchange Act and the rules thereunder related to the reporting requirements for certain public companies, subject to certain conditions.

The COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on economic activity across the globe has resulted in a rapid and precipitous drop in demand for oil, which in turn has caused oil prices to plummet since the first week of March 2020, negatively affecting the Company’s cash flow, liquidity and financial position. These events have worsened a deteriorated oil market which followed the early-March 2020 failure by the group of oil producing nations known as OPEC+ to reach an agreement over proposed oil production cuts.

These significant and rapid changes require complex accounting judgments and revisions of estimates upon which the Company’s financial statements are based, which require additional time for compilation, preparation, and review necessary to prepare the Company’s Quarterly Report. The Company currently expects to release its quarterly results and file its Quarterly Report by May 22, 2020; in any event, it will file the Quarterly Report no later than June 25, 2020 (45 days after the original due date of the Quarterly Report), which is the revised filing deadline as provided for in the SEC Order. Under the SEC Order, if the Quarterly Report is filed by such revised date, it will be deemed timely filed by the SEC.

Supplemental Risk Factor

The Company is supplementing its risk factors previously disclosed in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019 with the following risk factor:

The current outbreak of COVID-19 has adversely impacted our business, financial condition, liquidity and results of operations and is likely to have a continuing adverse impact for a significant period of time.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a rapid and precipitous drop in demand for oil, which in turn has caused oil prices to plummet since the first week of March 2020, negatively affecting the Company’s cash flow, liquidity and financial position. These events have worsened an already deteriorated oil market that resulted from the early-March 2020 failure by the group of oil producing nations known as OPEC+ to reach an agreement over proposed oil production cuts. Moreover, the uncertainty about the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused storage constraints in the United States resulting from over-supply of produced oil, which is expected to significantly decrease our realized oil prices in the second quarter of 2020 and potentially beyond. Oil prices are expected to continue to be volatile as a result of these events and the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, and as changes in oil inventories, oil demand and economic performance are reported. We cannot predict when oil prices will improve and stabilize.

The current pandemic and uncertainty about its length and depth in future periods has caused the realized oil prices we have received since February 2020 to be significantly reduced, adversely affecting our operating cash flow and liquidity. Although we have reduced our 2020 capital expenditures budget by 44%, our lower levels of cash flow could affect our borrowing capacity and may require us to shut-in production that has become uneconomic. These conditions have also increased the difficulty in repaying, refinancing or restructuring our long-term debt, which is necessary in order to maintain our continuing financial viability, as separately described in the other risk factors contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.

The COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly evolving, and the ultimate impact of this pandemic is highly uncertain and subject to change. The extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our operational and financial performance will depend on future developments, including the duration and spread of the pandemic, its severity, the actions to contain the disease or mitigate its impact, related restrictions on travel, and the duration, timing and severity of the impact on domestic and global oil demand. The COVID-19 pandemic may also intensify the risks described in the other risk factors disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.






Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties including statements regarding the expected filing date of the Quarterly Report and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and other risks and uncertainties detailed in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Denbury’s most recent report on Form 10-K. These risks and uncertainties are incorporated by this reference as though fully set forth herein. These statements are based on engineering, geological, financial and operating assumptions that management believes are reasonable based on currently available information; however, management’s assumptions and the Company’s future performance are both subject to a wide range of business risks, and there is no assurance that these goals and projections can or will be met. Actual results may vary materially. In addition, any forward-looking statements represent the Company’s estimates only as of today and should not be relied upon as representing its estimates as of any future date. Denbury assumes no obligation to update its forward-looking statements.
