Total G&A Expense$1.62 $2.06 (21)% $2.10 $2.64 (20)%
* Includes transportation and gathering.

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2018, increased 78% as compared to the year ended December 31, 2017.  This was due to a 48% increase in sales volumes over the period along with a 30% increase in the average realized oil price over the period.

During the year ended December 31, 2018, we experienced increased production expense compared to the year ended December 31, 2017 primarily due to an increase in net operated wells. In addition, elevated line pressures temporarily drove per unit operating costs higher in the second and third quarters of 2018 as the Company  incurred incremental costs without the typical benefit of flush production from its new wells.

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2018, was $260.0 million, or $1.07 per share, as compared to net income of $142.5 million, or $0.69 per share, in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2018 was $487.9 million compared to $282.6 million for 2017, a 73% year over year increase.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures presented on the basis of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”), we present certain financial measures which are not prescribed by US GAAP (“non-GAAP”). The following is a summary of the measures we currently report.

Adjusted EBITDA

We use “adjusted EBITDA,” a non-GAAP financial measure, for internal managerial purposes because it allows us to evaluate our operating performance and compare the results of our operations from period to period without regard to our financing methods or capital structure.  We exclude the items listed in the table below from net income (loss) in arriving at adjusted EBITDA.  We exclude those items because they can vary substantially from company to company within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures, and the method by which the assets were acquired.  Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under US GAAP and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, net income.  We believe that adjusted EBITDA is widely used in our industry as a measure of operating performance and may also be used by investors to measure our ability to meet debt covenant requirements.  However, our definition of adjusted EBITDA may not be fully comparable to measures with similar titles reported by other companies.  We define adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted to exclude the impact of the items set forth in the table below (amounts in thousands):

Depletion, depreciation, and accretion55,627  38,913  179,773  112,309 
Goodwill impairment40,711    40,711   
Income tax expense (benefit)19,891  (99) 37,967  (99)
Stock-based compensation expense2,940  2,835  12,287  11,225

Cash settlements on commodity derivative contracts(6,096) 164  (19,359) 942 
Interest expense, net of interest income(62) 11,526  (99) 11,479 
Adjusted EBITDA$142,968  $110,707  $487,889  $282,564 

PV-10

PV-10 is a non-GAAP financial measure.  We believe that the presentation of PV-10 is relevant and useful to investors because it presents the discounted future net cash flows attributable to our estimated net proved reserves prior to taking into account future corporate income taxes, and it is a useful measure for evaluating the relative monetary significance of our oil and gas properties.  It is not intended to represent the current market value of our estimated reserves.  PV-10 should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the standardized measure reported in accordance with US GAAP, but rather should be considered in addition to the standardized measure.

PV-10 is derived from the standardized measure, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.  PV-10 is calculated using the same inputs and assumptions as the standardized measure, with the exception that it omits the impact of future income taxes.  It is considered to be a pre-tax measurement.

The following table provides a reconciliation of the standardized measure to PV-10:

 As of December 31,
 2018 2017
Standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows$2,675,648  $1,600,675 
Add: 10 percent annual discount, net of income taxes1,941,844  1,267,258 
Add: future undiscounted income taxes759,280  285,349 
Future pre-tax net cash flows$5,376,772  $3,153,282 
Less: 10 percent annual discount, pre-tax(2,215,621) (1,396,998)
PV-10$3,161,151  $1,756,284
