“TPL continues to reap the rewards of strong oil and gas prices and supportive Permian Basin activity, with record quarter revenues from oil and gas royalties,” said Tyler Glover, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “Beyond just oil and gas royalties, the Company’s other major surface-related revenue streams – easements and other surface-related income, water sales, and produced water royalties – all generated significant sequential quarterly revenue growth and contributed meaningful incremental cash flow. In addition, TPL continues to have numerous constructive conversations on a wide array of next-generation opportunities, and we were pleased to share updates on some of that progress during the quarter. We announced new ventures for TPL surface with a new alliance with Mawson and JAI to develop bitcoin mining and an agreement with Milestone Carbon to evaluate potential carbon sequestration. We look forward to advancing these and other projects as we strive to maximize the value of TPL’s unique, expansive surface footprint.”

Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2022

The Company reported net income of $118.9 million for the second quarter of 2022, an increase of 108.4% compared to net income of $57.0 million for the second quarter of 2021.

Our total revenues increased $80.3 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to the same period of 2021, largely driven by the $63.1 million increase in oil and gas royalty revenue and the $13.0 million combined increase in water sales and produced water royalties. Our share of production was approximately 19.8 thousand barrels of oil equivalent (“Boe”) per day for the second quarter of 2022 compared to 16.4 thousand Boe per day for the same period of 2021. The average realized price was $70.36 per Boe for the second quarter of 2022, compared to $40.83 per Boe for the comparable period of 2021. Water sales increased $9.8 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to the second quarter of 2021 principally due to a 55.0% increase in the number of barrels of sourced and treated water sold. Our revenue streams are directly impacted by development and operating decisions in the Permian Basin made by our customers and by commodity prices, among other factors.

Our total operating expenses of $24.6 million for the second quarter of 2022 decreased slightly compared to the same period of 2021. Salaries and related employee expenses for the second quarter of 2022 compared to the same period of 2021 decreased approximately $3.7 million as expenses for 2021 included severance costs. Additionally, we are beginning to recognize the benefits of our ongoing investment in electrifying our water sourcing infrastructure through the reduction of certain expenses, principally fuel and equipment rental. Partially offsetting this decrease, the accrual for ad valorem taxes increased $2.0 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to the same period of 2021.

Financial Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2022

The Company reported net income of $216.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, an increase of 102.4% compared to net income of $107.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Our total revenues increased $143.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to the same period of 2021, largely driven by the $117.7 million increase in oil and gas royalty revenue and the $21.2 million combined increase in water sales and produced water royalties. Our share of production was approximately 20.3 thousand Boe per day for the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to 16.4 thousand Boe per day for the same period of 2021. The average realized price was $64.22 per Boe for the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to $37.94 per Boe for the comparable period of 2021. Our revenue streams are directly impacted by commodity prices and development and operating decisions made by our customers and vary as the pace of development and oil demand varies.

Our total operating expenses of $47.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 increased $0.8 million compared to the same period of 2021. Operating expenses for 2022 increased principally as a result of the Company recording a $4.0 million accrual for ad valorem taxes and contributing $250,000 to the Permian Basin Area Foundation in support of the initiative to renovate Hogan Park in Midland, Texas. Partially offsetting these increases, salaries and related employee expenses decreased due to the absence of severance costs in 2022. Additionally, we are beginning to recognize the benefits of our ongoing investment in electrifying our water sourcing infrastructure through the reduction of certain expenses, principally fuel and equipment rental.

Update on the Evaluation of the Board Declassification Process

On August 2, 2022, the Board of Directors, after consideration of a recommendation from the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, resolved to include a proposal to amend the Company’s charter to declassify the Board of Directors in its proxy materials for the Company’s 2022 annual meeting of stockholders.

Quarterly Dividend Declared

On August 2, 2022, the Board declared a quarterly cash dividend of $3.00 per share, payable on September 15, 2022 to stockholders of record at the close of business on September 8, 2022.

NON-GAAP PERFORMANCE MEASURES AND DEFINITIONS

In addition to amounts presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”), we also present certain supplemental non-GAAP measurements. These measurements are not to be considered more relevant or accurate than the measurements presented in accordance with GAAP. In compliance with the requirements of the SEC, our non-GAAP measurements are reconciled to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP performance measure. For all non-GAAP measurements, neither the SEC nor any other regulatory body has passed judgment on these non-GAAP measurements.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measurement of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization. Its purpose is to highlight earnings without finance, taxes, and depreciation, depletion and amortization expense, and its use is limited to specialized analysis. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA excluding the impact of certain non-cash, non-recurring and/or unusual, non-operating items, including, but not limited to: employee share-based compensation, conversion costs related to our Corporate Reorganization, and severance costs. We have presented EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because we believe that both are useful supplements to net income in analyzing operating performance.

The following table presents a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 (in thousands):
