 1  Forward-Looking Statements  This presentation contains forward-looking statements, including those relating to our future financial and operational results, reserves or transactions, that are subject to various risks and uncertainties that could cause the Company’s future plans, objectives and performance to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may”, “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “subject to,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “continue,” “present value,” “future,” “reserves,” “appears,” “prospective,” or other variations thereof or comparable terminology. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences could include, but are not limited to, those relating to the results of exploratory drilling activity, the Company’s growth strategy, changes in oil and natural gas prices, operating risks, availability of drilling equipment, availability of capital, the inherent variability in early production tests, dependence on weather conditions, seasonality, expansion and other activities of competitors, changes in federal or state environmental laws and the administration of such laws, the general condition of the economy and its effect on the securities market, the availability, terms or completion of any strategic alternative or any transaction and other factors described in “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in the Company’s Form 10-K and other filings with the SEC. While we believe our forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, these are factors that are difficult to predict and that are influenced by economic and other conditions beyond our control. The United States Securities and Exchange Commission permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose proved, probable and possible reserves. We use certain terms in this document, such as non-proven, resource potential, Probable, Possible, Exploration and unrisked resource potential. These terms include reserves , and prospects and leads not rising to the level of or included in reserves, with substantially less certainty than proved reserves, and no discount or other adjustment is included in the presentation of such amounts. The recipient is urged to consider closely the disclosure in our Form 10-K, filed March 18, 2016 available from us at 801 Travis, Suite 1425, Houston, Texas 77002 or our web site. You can also obtain this form from the SEC by calling 1-800-SEC-0330.
