Financial Discussion

(Except for generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) reported amounts, specific expense categories exclude non-cash impairments, unrealized mark-to-market on derivatives, non-cash stock compensation and other items shown separately on the attached tables. We sold substantially all of our Barnett Shale properties in April 2011. Under GAAP, activity for our Barnett Shale properties was reclassified as “Discontinued operations.” As a result, production, revenue and expenses associated with these properties were removed from continuing operations and reclassified as discontinued operations. In this release, supplemental Statements of Operations are presented to reconcile the changes to the prior-year periods for the reclassification of our Barnett Shale properties to discontinued operations. These supplemental non-GAAP tables present the reported GAAP amounts and the amounts that would have been reported if the Barnett Shale operations were included in continuing operations. All variances discussed in this release include the Barnett Shale operations as continuing operations in all prior year periods.)

Full Year 2012

GAAP revenues for 2012 totaled $1.5 billion (18% increase as compared to 2011), GAAP net cash provided from operating activities including changes in working capital reached $647 million ($4.04 per diluted share) and GAAP earnings were $13 million ($0.08 per diluted share) versus $58 million ($0.36 per diluted share) in 2011. 2012 results were driven by record high production and a decrease in unit costs, offset by a 23% decline in realized prices.

Non-GAAP revenues for 2012 totaled $1.4 billion (11% increase compared to 2011), cash flow from operations before changes in working capital, a non-GAAP measure, reached $756 million ($4.71 per diluted share versus consensus of $4.33 per share). Adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measure, was $148 million ($0.92 per diluted share for 2012 versus average First Call consensus estimates of $0.74 per share). Wellhead prices, after adjustment for all cash-settled hedges and derivatives, averaged $5.05 per mcfe. The Company’s cost structure continued to improve as total unit costs decreased by $0.40 per mcfe or 9% as compared to the prior year. Direct operating expenses for the year averaged $0.41 per mcfe, a 32% decrease compared to the prior year. Depreciation, depletion and amortization expense decreased 7% to $1.62 per mcfe.
