  Reconciliation of non-GAAP measure

The table below represents a reconciliation of EBITDAX to the Company's net income (loss), which is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America.

  Three Months Ended March 31,
  2013 2012
   (in thousands)  
Net loss  $ (12,784)  $ (27,291)
Interest expense  4,298  6,210
Income tax expense (benefit)  330  (4,310)
Depreciation, depletion and amortization expense  6,904  11,506
Geological, geophysical and engineering expense  358  25,221
Loss on derivatives  548  6,368
EBITDAX (a)  $ (346)  $ 17,704

(a) Earnings before interest, income taxes, depletion, depreciation and amortization, exploration expense and certain non-cash charges ("EBITDAX") is a non-GAAP financial measure, as it excludes amounts or is subject to adjustments that effectively exclude amounts, included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in financial statements. "GAAP" refers to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. Non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by management are provided as additional information to investors in order to provide them with an alternative method for assessing the Company's financial condition and operating results. These measures are not in accordance with, or a substitute for, GAAP, and may be different from or inconsistent with non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, whenever the Company refers to a non-GAAP financial measure, it also presents the most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with GAAP, along with a reconciliation of the differences between the non-GAAP financial measure and such comparable GAAP financial measure. Management believes that EBITDAX may provide additional helpful information with respect to the Company's performance or ability to meet its debt service and working capital requirements.
