MANAGEMENT COMMENTARY

Tony Best, CEO, remarked, "2013 was an extraordinary year for SM Energy. Our proved reserves at year end 2013 were up by 46% from 2012 and our drilling finding and development costs were down by 26% for the same period. Our development programs were the performance drivers in 2013, resulting in 33% annual average daily production growth for the Company and record annual production. As we look to 2014, we believe we have plenty of dry powder to fund our program and many exciting opportunities in optimizing our existing development programs and increasing the inventory in our new venture plays."

FOURTH QUARTER 2013 RESULTS

SM Energy posted GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 of $7.0 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $67.1 million, or $1.02 per diluted share, for the same period of 2012. Adjusted net income for the fourth quarter was $85.9 million, or $1.26 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $30.4 million, or $0.45 per adjusted diluted share, in the same period of 2012. Adjusted net income excludes certain items that the Company believes affect the comparability of operating results. Items excluded are generally one-time items or are items whose timing and/or amount cannot be reasonably estimated. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, accretion, and exploration expense ("EBITDAX") were $395.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of 33% from $298.2 million for the same period in 2012.
