Item 2.02Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On April 29, 2020, QEP Resources, Inc. (the Company) issued a press release to report financial and operating results for the period ended March 31, 2020, and to provide an update to 2020 guidance.

The Company's press release announcing its financial results for the period ended March 31, 2020, includes non-GAAP financial measures.

Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G and Item 10(e)(1)(i) of Regulation S-K, the Company has provided quantitative reconciliations within the press release of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures (unless there is no directly comparable GAAP financial measure).

The information contained in Item 2.02 to this Form 8-K, including the exhibit, shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (Exchange Act), and the information shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (Securities Act), except to the extent expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
