In management’s opinion, the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the financial position of Comstock Resources, Inc. and subsidiaries (“Comstock” or the “Company”) as of June 30, 2014, the related results of operations and comprehensive income for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, and cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013.

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States have been omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations, although Comstock believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in Comstock’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013.

The results of operations for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2014 are not necessarily an indication of the results expected for the full year.

These unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Comstock and its wholly-owned and controlled subsidiaries.

Reclassifications

Certain reclassifications have been made to prior periods’ financial statements, consisting primarily of reclassifications to the presentation of the Company’s derivative financial instruments to conform to the current periods’ presentation.

Marketable Securities

During the six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company sold 600,000 shares of Stone Energy Corporation common stock and received $13.4 million in proceeds. These shares had a cost basis of $5.5 million. Comstock realized a gain before income taxes of $7.9 million on the sale which is included in other income in the consolidated statements of operations. The Company utilized the specific identification method to determine the cost of the securities that were sold.

Property and Equipment

The Company follows the successful efforts method of accounting for its oil and gas properties. Costs incurred to acquire oil and gas leasehold are capitalized.

Unproved oil and gas properties are periodically assessed and any impairment in value is charged to exploration expense. The costs of unproved properties which are determined to be productive are transferred to oil and gas properties and amortized on an equivalent unit-of-production basis. For the three months and six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company recognized impairment charges in exploration expense of $9.5 million and $11.9 million, respectively, related to certain leases that were expected to expire prior to the Company conducting drilling operations. There were no unproved property impairments during the six months ended June 30, 2014.

The Company also assesses the need for an impairment of the costs capitalized for its oil and gas properties on a property basis. The Company recognized impairment charges of $0.3 million and $0.7 million for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2014 and June 30, 2013, respectively, related to its oil and gas properties.

Derivative Financial Instruments and Hedging Activities

Comstock periodically uses swaps, floors and collars to hedge oil and natural gas prices and interest rates. Swaps are settled monthly based on differences between the prices specified in the instruments and the settlement prices of futures contracts. Generally, when the applicable settlement price is less than the price specified in the contract, Comstock receives a settlement from the counterparty based on the difference multiplied by the volume or amounts hedged. Similarly, when the applicable settlement price exceeds the price specified in the contract, Comstock pays the counterparty based on the difference. Comstock generally receives a settlement from the counterparty for floors when the applicable settlement price is less than the price specified in the contract, which is based on the difference multiplied by the volumes hedged. For collars, generally Comstock receives a settlement from the counterparty when the settlement price is below the floor and pays a settlement to the counterparty when the settlement price exceeds the cap. No settlement occurs when the settlement price falls between the floor and cap.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had the following outstanding commodity derivatives:

All of the Company’s derivative financial instruments are used for risk management purposes and by policy none are held for trading or speculative purposes. Comstock minimizes credit risk to counterparties of its derivative financial instruments through formal credit policies, monitoring procedures, and diversification. All of Comstock’s derivative financial instruments are with parties that are lenders under its bank credit facility. The Company is not required to provide any credit support to its counterparties other than cross collateralization with the assets securing its bank credit facility. None of the Company’s derivative financial instruments involve payment or receipt of premiums.

None of the derivative contracts have been designated as cash flow hedges. The Company recognizes cash settlements and changes in the fair value of its derivative financial instruments as a single component of other income (expenses). The Company had losses of $9.9 million and gains of $3.5 million related to its oil swap agreements during the three months ended June 30, 2014 and

2013, respectively, and losses of $14.8 million and $2.9 million during the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. Cash settlements on derivative financial instruments were payments of $4.0 million and receipts of $2.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, and payments of $5.3 million and receipts of $5.2 million during the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The estimated fair value and carrying value of the Company’s derivative financial instruments was a liability of $8.5 million and an asset of $1.0 million as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively, which are reflected as current liabilities and current assets, respectively.

Stock-Based Compensation

Comstock accounts for employee stock-based compensation under the fair value method. Compensation cost is measured at the grant date based on the fair value of the award and is recognized over the award vesting period. During the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company recognized $2.7 million and $3.2 million, respectively, of stock-based compensation expense within general and administrative expenses related to awards of restricted stock and performance stock units to its employees and directors. For the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company recognized $5.0 million and $6.4 million, respectively, of stock-based compensation expense within general and administrative expenses.

During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company granted 235,524 shares of restricted stock with a grant date fair value of $4.8 million or $20.24 per share to its employees and non-employee directors. The fair value of each restricted share on the date of grant is equal to its market price. As of June 30, 2014, Comstock had 1,213,361 shares of unvested restricted stock outstanding at a weighted average grant date fair value of $19.91 per share. Total unrecognized compensation cost related to unvested restricted stock grants of $10.7 million as of June 30, 2014 is expected to be recognized over a period of 1.6 years.

During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company granted 188,958 performance share units (“PSUs”) with a grant date fair value of $3.7 million or $19.81 per unit to its employees. As of June 30, 2014, Comstock had 362,161 PSUs outstanding at a weighted average grant date fair value of $20.48 per unit. The number of shares of common stock to be issued related to the PSUs is based on the Company’s stock price performance as compared to its peers which could result in the issuance of anywhere from zero to 848,567 shares of common stock. Total unrecognized compensation cost related to these grants of $4.3 million as of June 30, 2014 is expected to be recognized over a period of 1.4 years.

As of June 30, 2014, Comstock had outstanding options to purchase 115,150 shares of common stock at a weighted average exercise price of $32.90 per share. All of the stock options were exercisable and there were no unrecognized compensation costs related to the stock options as of June 30, 2014. No stock options were exercised during the three months or six months ended June 30, 2014 or 2013.

Deferred income taxes are provided to reflect the future tax consequences or benefits of differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their reported amounts in the financial statements using enacted tax rates. The difference between the Company’s effective tax rate and the 35% federal statutory rate is mainly caused by non-deductible stock compensation and state taxes. The impact of these items varies based upon the Company’s projected full year income or loss and the jurisdictions that are expected to generate the projected income and/or losses. The difference between the Company’s customary rate of 35% and the effective tax rate on income before income taxes from continuing operations is due to the following:

The Company’s federal income tax returns for the years subsequent to December 31, 2009, remain subject to examination. The Company’s income tax returns in major state income tax jurisdictions remain subject to examination from various periods subsequent to December 31, 2008. State tax returns in one state jurisdiction are currently under review. The Company has evaluated the preliminary findings in this jurisdiction and believes it is more likely than not that the ultimate resolution of these matters will not have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements. The Company currently believes that all other significant filing positions are highly certain and that all of its other significant income tax positions and deductions would be sustained under audit or the final resolution would not have a material effect on the consolidated financial statements. Therefore, the Company has not established any significant reserves for uncertain tax positions.

Fair Value Measurements

The Company holds or has held certain items that are required to be measured at fair value. These include cash and cash equivalents held in bank accounts and derivative financial instruments in the form of oil price swap agreements. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. A three-level hierarchy is followed for disclosure to show the extent and level of judgment used to estimate fair value measurements:

Level 1 – Inputs used to measure fair value are unadjusted quoted prices that are available in active markets for the identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date.

Level 2 – Inputs used to measure fair value, other than quoted prices included in Level 1, are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reporting date through correlation with market data, including quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets and quoted prices in markets that are not active. Level 2 also includes assets and liabilities that are valued using models or other pricing methodologies that do not require significant judgment since the input assumptions used in the models, such as interest rates and volatility factors, are corroborated by readily observable data from actively quoted markets for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.

Level 3 – Inputs used to measure fair value are unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and reflect the use of significant management judgment. These values are generally determined using pricing models for which the assumptions utilize management’s estimates of market participant assumptions.

The Company’s valuation of cash and cash equivalents is a Level 1 measurement. The Company’s oil price swap agreements are not traded on a public exchange, and their value is determined utilizing a discounted cash flow model based on inputs that are readily available in public markets and, accordingly, the valuation of these swap agreements is categorized as a Level 2 measurement.

The following table summarizes financial assets and liabilities accounted for at fair value as of June 30, 2014:

Earnings Per Share

Basic earnings per share is determined without the effect of any outstanding potentially dilutive stock options or PSUs and diluted earnings per share is determined with the effect of outstanding stock options and PSUs that are potentially dilutive. Unvested share-based payment awards containing nonforfeitable rights to dividends are considered to be participatory securities and are included in the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share pursuant to the two-class method. PSUs represent the right to receive a number of shares of the Company’s common stock that may range from zero to up to three times the number of PSUs granted on the award date based on the achievement of certain performance measures during a performance period. The number of potentially dilutive shares related to PSUs is based on the number of shares, if any, which would be issuable at the end of the respective period, assuming that date was the end of the contingency period. The treasury stock method is used to measure the dilutive effect of PSUs. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 were determined as follows:

Comstock has a $1.0 billion bank credit facility with Bank of Montreal, as the administrative agent. The bank credit facility is a five year revolving credit commitment that matures on November 22, 2018. Indebtedness under the bank credit facility is secured by all of Comstock’s assets and is guaranteed by all of its wholly owned subsidiaries. The credit facility is subject to borrowing base availability, which is redetermined semiannually based on the banks’ estimates of the Company’s future net cash flows of oil and natural gas properties. As of June 30, 2014, the borrowing base was $700.0 million, of which $420.0 million was available. The borrowing base may be affected by the performance of Comstock’s properties and changes in oil and natural gas prices. The determination of the borrowing base is at the sole discretion of the administrative agent and the bank group. Borrowings under the bank credit facility bear interest, based on the utilization of the borrowing base, at Comstock’s option at either (1) LIBOR plus 1.5% to 2.5% or (2) the base rate (which is the

16


 

higher of the administrative agent’s prime rate, the federal funds rate plus 0.5% or 30 day LIBOR plus 1.0%) plus 0.5% to 1.5%. A commitment fee of 0.375% to 0.5%, based on the utilization of the borrowing base, is payable annually on the unused borrowing base. The bank credit facility contains covenants that, among other things, restrict the payment of cash dividends and repurchases of common stock in excess of $120.0 million per year, limit the amount of consolidated debt that Comstock may incur and limit the Company’s ability to make certain loans and investments. The only financial covenants are the maintenance of a leverage ratio and the maintenance of an interest coverage ratio. The Company was in compliance with these covenants as of June 30, 2014.

Comstock has $400.0 million of 7¾% senior notes (the “2019 Notes”) outstanding which are due on April 1, 2019 and bear interest which is payable semi-annually on each April 1 and October 1. Comstock also has $300.0 million of 9½% senior notes (the “2020 Notes”) which are due on June 15, 2020 and bear interest which is payable semi-annually on each June 15 and December 15. During the three months ended June 30, 2014 the Company issued $100.0 million of the 2019 Notes in a public offering. Net proceeds from the issuance of the additional 2019 Notes of $103.3 million were used to pay down borrowings under the Company’s bank credit facility. The 2019 Notes and 2020 Notes are unsecured obligations of Comstock and are guaranteed by all of Comstock’s material subsidiaries. Such subsidiary guarantors are 100% owned and all of the guarantees are full and unconditional and joint and several obligations. As of June 30, 2014, Comstock had no material assets or operations which are independent of its subsidiaries. There are no restrictions on the ability of Comstock to obtain funds from its subsidiaries through dividends or loans.

 

(4) Commitments and Contingencies –

From time to time, Comstock is involved in certain litigation that arises in the normal course of its operations. The Company records a loss contingency for these matters when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated. The Company does not believe the resolution of these matters will have a material effect on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

In connection with its exploration and development activities, the Company contracts for drilling rigs under terms of up to two years. As of June 30, 2014, the Company had commitments for contracted drilling services of $28.8 million.

The Company has entered into natural gas transportation and treating agreements through July 2019. Maximum commitments under these transportation agreements as of June 30, 2014 totaled $15.4 million.
