Forward-Looking Statements This presentation contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this presentation are forward-looking statements. Although PetroQuest Energy, Inc. (the “Company”) believes that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements are based upon assumptions and anticipated results that are subject to numerous risks, trends and uncertainties, and there can be no assurance that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements will prove to have been correct. Among those risks, trends and uncertainties are: risks and uncertainties associated with our previous Chapter 11 proceedings; the likelihood that our Chapter 11 proceedings may have disrupted our business; the possibility that the assumptions and analyses used to develop our Chapter 11 plan of reorganization may prove to have been incorrect; the likelihood that our historical financial information may no longer be indicative of our future financial performance; the possibility that our new board of directors may have a different strategy and plan for the Company's future; our ability to attract and retain key personnel may be affected by our emergence from bankruptcy; the volatility of oil and natural gas prices; our indebtedness and the amount of cash required to service our indebtedness; our ability to obtain adequate financing when the need arises to execute our long-term strategy and to fund our planned capital expenditures; limits on our growth and our ability to finance our operations, fund our capital needs and respond to changing conditions imposed by the term loan agreement and restrictive debt covenants; the effects of a financial downturn or negative credit market conditions on our liquidity, business and financial condition; our responsibility for offshore decommissioning liabilities for offshore interests we no longer own; our ability to find, develop, produce and acquire additional oil and natural gas reserves that are economically recoverable; the risk of severe weather, including hurricanes and tropical storms, as well as flooding, coastal erosion and sea level rise; our ability to successfully develop our inventory of undeveloped acreage; the possibility of a substantial lease renewal cost or the loss of our leases and prospective drilling opportunities that could result from a failure to drill sufficient wells to hold our undeveloped acreage; Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) rules that could limit our ability to book proved undeveloped reserves in the future; the likelihood that our actual production, revenues and expenditures related to our reserves will differ from our estimates of proved reserves; our ability to identify, execute or efficiently integrate future acquisitions; losses and liabilities from uninsured or underinsured drilling and operating activities; ceiling test write-downs resulting, and that could result in the future, from lower oil and natural gas prices; our ability to market our oil and natural gas production; changes in laws and governmental regulations and increases in insurance costs or decreases in insurance availability directed toward our business; regulatory initiatives relating to oil and natural gas development, hydraulic fracturing, and derivatives; proposed changes to U.S. tax laws; competition from larger oil and natural gas companies; the operating hazards attendant to the oil and gas business; governmental regulation relating to environmental compliance costs and environmental liabilities; the impact of potential cybersecurity threats; the loss of our information and computer systems; the impact of terrorist activities on global economies; the possibility that the interests of our significant stockholders could be in conflict with the interest of our other stockholders; no meaningful trading market for our Class A Common Stock and the volatility of the market price for our Class A Common Stock; the restrictions in our certificate of incorporation and bylaws which could delay or prevent a change of control of our company; and the restrictions on our ability to pay dividends with respect to any series of common stock. In particular, careful consideration should be given to cautionary statements made in the various reports the Company has filed with the SEC. The Company undertakes no duty to update or revise these forward-looking statements, except as may be required under applicable law. Generally, the SEC permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only proved reserves that a company has demonstrated by actual production or conclusive formation tests to be economically and legally producible under existing economic and operating conditions. The SEC also permits the optional disclosure of probable and possible reserves. We have elected not to disclose our probably and possible reserves in our filings with the SEC. We use the terms “reserve inventory,” “gross unrisked reserves,” “EUR,” “inventory”, “unrisked resource potential”, 3P reserves or other descriptions of volumes of hydrocarbons to describe volumes of resources potentially recoverable through additional drilling or recovery techniques that the SEC’s guidelines prohibit us from including in filings with the SEC. Estimates of reserve inventory, gross unrisked reserves EUR, inventory, unrisked 3P reserves do not reflect volumes that are demonstrated as being commercially or technically recoverable. Even if commercially or technically recoverable, a significant recovery factor would be applied to these volumes to determine estimates of volumes of proved reserves. Accordingly, these estimates are by their nature more speculative than estimates of proved reserves and accordingly are subject to substantially greater risk of being actually realized by the Company. The methodology for estimating unrisked inventory, gross unrisked reserves, EUR, or unrisked resource potential or 3P reserves may also be different than the methodology and guidelines used by the Society of Petroleum Engineers and is different from the SEC’s guidelines for estimating probable and possible reserves. 1
