2 This presentation may contain forward - looking statements about the business, financial condition and prospects of the Company. Forwar d - looking statements can be identified by the use of forward - looking terminology such as “believes,” “projects,” “expects,” “may,” “goal,” “estimates,” “should,” “plans,” “targets,” “intends,” “could,” or “anticipates,” or the negative thereof, or other variations th ereon, or comparable terminology, or by discussions of strategy or objectives. Forward - looking statements relate to anticipated or expecte d events, activities, and trends. Because forward - looking statements relate to matters that have not yet occurred, these statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties. Forward - looking statements in this presentation include, without limitation, the Company’s e xpectations of oil and oil equivalents, barrels of oil and gas resources, prospects leased , dollar amounts of value creation, undiscovered resources, drilling success rates, resource information, superior economics, consistent value growth and other performance results. The SEC permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC to disclose only proved, probable and possible reserves, i.e . Items 1201 through 1208 of Regulation S - K (“SEC Oil and Gas Industry Disclosures” ). The estimates of recoverable resources used in this presentation do not comply with the SEC Oil and Gas Industry Disclosures, nor should it be assumed that any recoverable resources will be classified as proved, probable or p oss ible reserves consistent with the SEC Oil and Gas Industry Disclosures. Recoverable resources estimates are undiscovered, highly speculativ e r esources estimated where geological and geophysical data suggest the potential for discovery of petroleum but where the level of proof is insufficient for a classification as reserves or contingent resources. In addition, recoverable resources have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, absolute amount, and economic feasibility . Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in forward - looking statements are reasonable, there can be no assurances that such expectations will prove to be accurate. Potential and existing shareholders are cautioned that such forward - looking statements involve risks and uncertainties. The forward - looking statements contained in this presentation speak only as of the date of this presentation, and the Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertakin g t o report any updates or revisions to any such statement to reflect any change in the Company’s expectations or any change in events, condi tio ns or circumstances on which any such statement is based. Certain factors may cause results to differ materially from those anticip ate d by some of the statements made in this presentation. Please carefully review our filings with the SEC as we have identified many risk fa cto rs that impact our business plan. U.S. investors are urged to consider closely the disclosures in our Forms 10 - K, 10 - Q, 8 - K and other filings with the SEC, which can be electronically accessed from our website at www.GulfSlope.com or the SEC's website at http://www.sec.gov / .
