Discussion of First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Oil and natural gas revenue increased 28% to $341 million in first quarter 2012 from $267 million in the same period of 2011 as a result of increases in oil production and realized reported oil prices. Oil production increased 33% to 3.4 MMBbls from first quarter 2011 production of 2.6 MMBbls mainly due to continued development of the company's properties in the Mississippian play and Permian Basin. First quarter 2012 total production increased 11% to 6.1 MMBoe from 5.5 MMBoe in first quarter 2011. Realized reported prices, which exclude the impact of derivative settlements, were $89.99 per barrel and $2.10 per Mcf during first quarter 2012. Realized reported prices in the same period of 2011 were $79.76 per barrel and $3.54 per Mcf.

Production expense increased 13% to $83 million in first quarter 2012 from $74 million in the same period of 2011 due primarily to the addition of costs from newly completed oil wells brought on production during 2011 and 2012. The company brought 240 wells on production during first quarter 2012. First quarter 2012 production expense was $13.77 per Boe compared to first quarter 2011 production expense of $13.55 per Boe.

Depletion per unit in first quarter 2012 was $14.82 per Boe compared to $13.53 per Boe in the same period of 2011. The increase in rate per unit primarily was a result of fourth quarter 2011 non-core asset sales.

EBITDA from Oilfield Services, Midstream and Other is a non-GAAP financial measure as it excludes from net income interest expense, income tax expense and depreciation, depletion and amortization. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for EBITDA from Oilfield Services, Midstream and Other is Net Income from Oilfield Services, Midstream and Other. Information to reconcile this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is not available at this time, as management is unable to forecast the excluded items for future periods and/or does not forecast the excluded items on a segment basis.

(3)

Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Noncontrolling Interest is a non-GAAP financial measure as it excludes unrealized gain or loss on derivative contracts and gain or loss on sale of assets. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Noncontrolling Interest is Net Income Attributable to Noncontrolling Interest. Information to reconcile this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is not available at this time, as management is unable to forecast the excluded items for future periods.








Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Operating cash flow, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income available (loss applicable) to common stockholders are non-GAAP financial measures.

The company defines operating cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities before changes in operating assets and liabilities. It defines EBITDA as net income (loss) before income tax expense, interest expense and depreciation, depletion, amortization and accretion of asset retirement obligation. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented herein, is EBITDA excluding interest income, realized gains on out-of-period derivative contract settlements, non-cash realized losses on financing derivatives, (gain) loss on sale of assets, transaction costs, loss on extinguishment of debt, non-cash realized losses on amended derivative contracts and other various non-cash items (including non-cash portion of noncontrolling interest, stock-based compensation, unrealized losses (gains) on derivative contracts, provision for doubtful accounts and inventory obsolescence).

Operating cash flow and adjusted EBITDA are supplemental financial measures used by the company's management and by securities analysts, investors, lenders, rating agencies and others who follow the industry as an indicator of the company's ability to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service or incur additional debt. The company also uses these measures because operating cash flow and adjusted EBITDA relate to the timing of cash receipts and disbursements that the company may not control and may not relate to the period in which the operating activities occurred. Further, operating cash flow and adjusted EBITDA allow the company to compare its operating performance and return on capital with those of other companies without regard to financing methods and capital structure. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net cash provided by operating activities prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute for net income, operating income, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income and operating income and these measures may vary among other companies. Therefore, the company's adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Management also uses the supplemental financial measure of adjusted net income available (loss applicable) to common stockholders, which excludes unrealized losses (gains) on derivative contracts, realized gains on out-of-period derivative contract settlements, non-cash realized losses on financing derivatives, transaction costs, loss on extinguishment of debt, non-cash realized losses on amended derivative contracts and (gain) loss on sale of assets from income available (loss applicable) to common stockholders. Management uses this financial measure as an indicator of the company's operational trends and performance relative to other oil and natural gas companies and believes it is more comparable to earnings estimates provided by securities analysts. Adjusted net income available (loss applicable) to common stockholders is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for income available (loss applicable) to common stockholders.

The tables below reconcile the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to operating cash flow, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income available (loss applicable) to common stockholders.
