Financial report summary

  • We recently emerged from bankruptcy, which may adversely affect our business and relationships.
  • Our actual financial results after emergence from bankruptcy may not be comparable to our historical financial information as a result of the implementation of the Plan and the transactions contemplated thereby.
  • Conservation measures and technological advances could reduce demand for natural gas and oil.
  • Negative public perception regarding us or our industry could have an adverse effect on our operations.
  • The oil and gas exploration and production industry is very competitive; some of our competitors have greater financial and other resources than we do, and there is competition to attract and retain talent and competition over access to certain industry equipment.
  • Oil, natural gas and NGL prices fluctuate widely, and lower prices for an extended period of time are likely to have a material adverse effect on our business.
  • The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and related economic turmoil have affected, and could continue to adversely affect, our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
  • If commodity prices fall or drilling efforts are unsuccessful, we may be required to record write downs of the carrying value of our oil and natural gas properties.
  • Significant capital expenditures are required to replace our reserves and conduct our business.
  • If we are not able to replace reserves, we may not be able to sustain production.
  • The actual quantities of and future net revenues from our proved reserves may be less than our estimates.
  • Our development and exploratory drilling efforts and our well operations may not be profitable or achieve our targeted returns.
  • Certain of our undeveloped properties are subject to leases that will expire over the next several years unless production is established on units containing the acreage or the leases are renewed.
  • Our commodity price risk management activities may limit the benefit we would receive from increases in commodity prices, may require us to provide collateral for derivative liabilities and involve risk that our counterparties may be unable to satisfy their obligations to us.
  • Oil and natural gas operations are uncertain and involve substantial costs and risks.
  • Our ability to produce oil, natural gas and NGL economically and in commercial quantities could be impaired if we are unable to acquire adequate supplies of water for our operations or are unable to dispose of or recycle the water we use economically and in an environmentally safe manner.
  • Risks related to potential acquisitions or dispositions may adversely affect our business.
  • Our operations may be adversely affected by pipeline, trucking and gathering system capacity constraints and may be subject to interruptions that could adversely affect our cash flow.
  • Cyber-attacks targeting systems and infrastructure used by the oil and gas industry and related regulations may adversely impact our operations and, if we or our third-party providers are unable to obtain and maintain adequate protection for our data, our business may be harmed.
  • We have significant capital needs, and our ability to access the capital and credit markets to raise capital on favorable terms is limited by industry conditions.
  • Restrictive covenants in certain of our debt agreements could limit our growth and our ability to finance our operations, fund our capital needs, respond to changing conditions and engage in other business activities that may be in our best interests.
  • Changes in the method of determining the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR), or the replacement of LIBOR with an alternative reference rate, may adversely affect interest expense related to outstanding debt.
