This release may contain forward-looking statements relating to future financial results, business expectations and business transactions. Business plans may change as circumstances warrant. In addition, the conditions to closing the transactions contemplated by the Unit Purchase and Contribution Agreement may not be met or the anticipated benefits from the proposed transaction may not be fully realized. Actual results may differ materially from those predicted as a result of factors over which EXCO has no control. Such factors include, but are not limited to: estimates of reserves, commodity price changes, regulatory changes and general economic conditions. These risk factors and additional information are included in EXCO’s reports on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). EXCO undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements.
The SEC has generally permitted oil and natural gas companies, in filings made with the SEC, to disclose only proved reserves that a company has demonstrated by actual production or conclusive formation tests to be economically and legally producible under existing economic and operating conditions.
We use the terms “probable,” “possible,” or “unproved” to describe volumes of reserves potentially recoverable through additional drilling or recovery techniques that the SEC’s guidelines prohibit us from including in filings with the SEC.
These estimates are by their nature more speculative than estimates of proved reserves and accordingly are subject to substantially greater risk of being actually realized by the company.
While we believe our calculation of unproved drillsites and estimations of unproved reserves have been appropriately risked and are reasonable, such calculations and estimates have not been reviewed by third party engineers or appraisers.
Investors are urged to consider closely the disclosures in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, which is available on our website at
