Forest Oil Announces Second Quarter 2011 Results

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Adjusted Net Earnings

In addition to reporting net earnings as defined under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Forest also presents adjusted net earnings, which is a non-GAAP performance measure. Adjusted net earnings consists of net earnings after adjustment for those items shown in the table below. Adjusted net earnings does not represent, and should not be considered an alternative to GAAP measurements, such as net earnings, (its most comparable GAAP financial measure), and Forest’s calculations thereof may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. By eliminating the items shown below, Forest believes that the measure is useful to investors because similar measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties in their evaluation of companies in similar industries. Forest’s management does not view adjusted net earnings in isolation and also uses other measurements, such as net earnings and revenues to measure operating performance. The following table provides a reconciliation of net earnings, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, to adjusted net earnings for the periods presented (in thousands):
