  • 2014 capital budget of $2.3 billion and expected production growth of 18% to 22%
  • Production from continuing operations of 8.7 million barrels of oil equivalent (“MMBoe”) for the third quarter of 2013, a 19% increase over the third quarter of 2012 and a 5% increase over the second quarter of 2013
  • Net income of $30.4 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013, as compared to net income of $6.0 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012
  • Adjusted net income 1 (non-GAAP) of $111.1 million, or $1.06 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013, as compared to $99.9 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012
  • EBITDAX 2 (non-GAAP) of $456.4 million for the third quarter of 2013, as compared to $387.2 million for the third quarter of 2012
