Devon Energy Reports Fourth-Quarter And Full-Year 2012 Results

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Drill-bit capital is defined as costs incurred less asset retirement costs and proved acquisition costs. Drill-bit capital is a Non-GAAP measure. Devon believes drill-bit capital is relevant because it provides additional insight into costs associated with current year exploration and development activities. Certain securities analysts also use this methodology to measure Devon’s performance. It should be noted that the actual costs of reserves added through Devon’s drilling program will differ, sometimes significantly, from the direct comparison of capital spent and reserves added in any given period due to the timing of capital expenditures and reserve bookings.
