  • Increased oil, natural gas and NGL sales 98 percent to approximately $968 million for the second quarter 2014, compared to $488 million for the second quarter 2013;
  • Generated net cash provided by operating activities of approximately $481 million for the second quarter 2014, compared to $227 million for the second quarter 2013;
  • Distributions paid to unitholders of approximately $241 million for the second quarter 2014, compared to $170 million for the second quarter 2013;
  • Excess of net cash of approximately $32 million for the second quarter 2014, compared to a shortfall of net cash of approximately $18 million for the second quarter 2013 (see Schedule 1, footnote 6); and
  • Net loss of approximately $208 million, or $0.64 per unit, for the second quarter 2014, which includes non-cash losses related to changes in fair value of unsettled commodity derivatives, including the reduction of put option premium value over time, of approximately $393 million, or $1.20 per unit.

"LINN's capital program and efficient management of our base assets continue to deliver positive results as evidenced by production growth that exceeded the high end of our guidance range," said Mark E. Ellis, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Additionally, we announced several important transactions that are consistent with our strategy of lowering the Company's capital intensity and overall decline rate. All of these transactions are expected to increase LINN's cash available for distribution. Finally, we are very pleased that the U.S. District Court dismissed the securities class action lawsuit with prejudice, and believe that the Court's ruling supports our position that the lawsuit was without merit."
