Stocks in this article: RRC

Recent Asset Sale Agreement

Range recently entered into an agreement to sell certain of its Permian Basin properties in southeast New Mexico and West Texas for a purchase price of $275 million. The sale is expected to close in April and is subject to customary closing conditions and purchase price adjustments. The properties being sold consist of approximately 7,000 net acres that are currently producing approximately 18 Mmcfe per day with approximately 70% being natural gas and 30% oil and NGLs. With this sale, the Company will have sold $2.3 billion in assets since 2004 while focusing its resources and personnel on the highest rate of return projects in the portfolio.

Hedging Status

Range hedges portions of its expected future production volumes to increase the predictability of its cash flow and to help maintain a strong, flexible financial position. Range currently has over 70% of its expected 2013 natural gas production hedged at a weighted average floor price of $4.18 per mcf. Similarly, Range has hedged more than 80% of its projected crude oil production at a floor price of $94.55 and more than 50% of its composite NGL production near current market prices. Please see Range’s detailed hedging schedule posted at the end of the financial tables below and on its website at

Range has updated its investor presentation with acreage maps, updated economic sensitivity analysis and other financial and operational information. Please see under the Investor Relations tab, “Presentations and Webcasts” area, for the presentation entitled, “Company Presentation - February 26, 2013.”
