Adjusted net income (non-GAAP) for the year was $227.9 million, or $3.87 per diluted share, versus $2.77 per diluted share in 2012.

"In 2013, Rosetta was successful in expanding our operations into a new basin that added a significant number of future growth locations to our project inventory. Our entry into the Delaware Basin provides a core asset in an oil-rich unconventional resource area that is complementary to our core Eagle Ford position, and we are accelerating development programs in both areas," said Jim Craddock, Rosetta's Chairman, CEO and President. "As we grow our operations, project execution and financial discipline will be a priority which will position Rosetta to continue to deliver strong returns and long-term shareholder value."
