FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
This website contains “forward looking statements” within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this website that address activities, events or developments that we expect, believe or anticipate will or may occur in the future are forward looking statements. These statements are based on certain assumptions we made based on management’s experience, perception of historical trends and technical analyses, current conditions, anticipated future developments and other factors believed to be appropriate and reasonable by management. When used in this website, words such as “will,” “potential,” “believe,” “estimate,” “intend,” “expect,” “may,” “should,” “anticipate,” “could,” “plan,” “predict,” “forecast,” “budget,” “guidance,” “project,” “profile,” “model,” “strategy,” “future” or their negatives or the statements that include these words or other words that convey the uncertainty of future events or outcomes, are intended to identify forward looking statements, although not all forward looking statements contain such identifying words. In particular, statements, express or implied, concerning our future operating results and returns or our ability to replace or increase reserves, increase production, or generate income or cash flows, service our debt and other obligations and repay or otherwise refinance such obligations when due or at maturity, operational and commercial benefits of our partnerships, expected benefits from acquisitions, including the transactions we closed in the first quarter of 2017 (the “Comanche Acquisition”) whereby we, along with an entity controlled by The Blackstone Group, L.P. (“Blackstone”), Gavilan Resources, LLC, acquired assets from Anadarko E&P Onshore LLC and Kerr-McGee Oil and Gas Onshore LP, and our strategic relationship with Sanchez Midstream Partners LP (“SNMP”) are forward looking statements. Forward looking statements are not guarantees of performance. Such statements are subject to a number of assumptions, risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in our forward looking statements are reasonable and are based on reasonable assumptions, no assurance can be given that these assumptions are accurate or that any of these expectations will be achieved (in full or at all) or will prove to have been correct. Important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from the expectations reflected in the forward looking statements include, among others: the timing and extent of changes in prices of, and demand for, crude oil and condensate, natural gas liquids (“NGLs”), natural gas and related commodities; our ability to successfully execute our business and financial strategies; our ability to comply with the financial and other covenants in our debt instruments, to repay our debt, and to address our liquidity needs, particularly if oil and natural gas prices remain volatile and/or depressed; the extent to which we are able to engage in successful strategic alternatives to improve our balance sheet and satisfy our obligations under our debt instruments; the extent to which we are able to pursue drilling plans and acquisitions that are successful in maintaining and economically developing our acreage, producing and replacing reserves and achieving anticipated production levels; our ability to successfully integrate our various acquired assets into our operations and realize the benefits of those acquisitions to fully identify existing and potential issues or liabilities and to accurately estimate reserves, production and costs with respect to such assets; our ability to access the credit and capital markets to obtain financing on terms we deem acceptable, if at all, and to otherwise satisfy our capital expenditure, debt service and other funding requirements through internally generated cash flows, asset sales and other activities; the extent to which our listing on an over-the-counter securities exchange rather than a national securities exchange will impair our access to equity markets and ability to obtain financing; the company’s ability to retain personnel and other resources; the realized benefits of our partnerships and joint ventures, including our transactions with SNMP and our partnership with affiliates of Blackstone; the accuracy of reserve estimates, which by their nature involve the exercise of professional judgment and may, therefore, be imprecise; the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting; the extent to which we can optimize reserve recovery and economically develop our properties utilizing horizontal and vertical drilling, advanced completion technologies, hydraulic stimulation and other techniques; the availability, proximity and capacity of, and costs associated with, gathering, processing, compression and transportation facilities; our ability to successfully execute our hedging strategy and the resulting realized prices therefrom; the availability, creditworthiness and performance of our counterparties, including financial institutions, operating partners and other parties; the extent to which requests for credit assurances, or minimum volume commitments or “take-or-pay” obligations in excess of our oil and natural gas deliveries to, or transportation needs from, our contractual counterparties could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations; competition in the oil and natural gas exploration and production industry generally and with respect to the marketing of crude oil, natural gas and NGLs, acquisition of leases and properties, attraction and retention of employees and other personnel, procurement of equipment, materials and services and, related thereto, the availability and cost of employees and other personnel, equipment, materials and services; the extent to which our production, revenue and cash flow from operating activities are concentrated in a single geographic area; developments in oil producing and natural gas producing countries, the actions of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and other factors affecting the supply and pricing of oil and natural gas; the extent to which third-party operators operate our crude oil and natural gas properties successfully and economically; our ability to manage the financial risks where we share with more than one party the costs of drilling, equipping, completing and operating wells, including with respect to the assets acquired in the Comanche Acquisition; the use of competing energy sources, the development of alternative energy sources and potential economic implications and other effects therefrom; results of litigation filed against us or other legal proceedings or out-of-court contractual disputes to which we are party; the extent to which we incur uninsured losses and liabilities or losses and liabilities in excess of our insurance coverage, including losses related to sabotage, terrorism or other malicious intentional acts (including cyber-attacks) that disrupt operations; the impact of, and changes in, government policies, laws and regulations, including tax laws and regulations, environmental laws and regulations relating to air emissions, waste disposal, hydraulic fracturing and access to and use of water, laws and regulations imposing conditions and restrictions on drilling and completion operations and laws, regulations, restrictions and guidelines with respect to derivatives, hedging activities and commercial lending standards; and the other factors described in our Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K. Further information on such assumptions, risks and uncertainties is available in the company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The company’s filings with the SEC are available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made and the company undertakes no obligation to correct or update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law.
In light of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the events anticipated by our forward‑looking statements may not occur, and, if any of such events do, we may not have correctly anticipated the timing of their occurrence or the extent of their impact on our actual results. Accordingly, you should not place any undue reliance on any of our forward‑looking statements. Any forward‑looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and we undertake no obligation to correct or update any forward‑looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law. These cautionary statements qualify all forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf.
The SEC permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only proved, probable and possible reserves. We may use certain terms in our website, such as net resource potential and other variations of the foregoing terms that the SEC’s guidelines strictly prohibit us from including in filings with the SEC. Statements of reserves are only estimates and may not correspond to the ultimate quantities of oil and gas recovered. Any reserve estimates provided on this website that are not specifically designated as being estimates of proved reserves may include “potential” reserves and/or other estimated reserves not necessarily calculated in accordance with, or contemplated by, the SEC’s latest reserve reporting guidelines.
Included in this website are certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under SEC Regulation G. Investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in our Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K and any reconciliation to GAAP measures provided in this website.
Investors are urged to consider closely the reserves and other disclosures in our filings with the SEC available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. You can also obtain this information from the SEC by calling its general information line at 1-800-SEC-0330.
