Item 7.01

Regulation FD Disclosure.


On May 29, 2018, GulfSlope Energy, Inc. (the “Company”) posted presentation materials (“Investor Presentation”) on the Investors section of the Company’s website at https://ir.gulfslope.com/presentations. The Company expects to use the Investor Presentation, in whole or in part, and possibly with modifications, in connection with presentations to investors, analysts and others. By filing this Current Report on Form 8-K and furnishing the information contained herein, the Company makes no admission as to the materiality of any information in this report that is required to be disclosed solely by reason of Regulation FD. The information contained in the Investor Presentation is summary information that is intended to be considered in the context of the Company’s Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings and other public announcements that the Company may make, by press release or otherwise, from time to time. The Company undertakes no duty or obligation to publicly update or revise the information contained in this report, although it may do so from time to time as its management believes is warranted. Any such updating may be made through the filing of other reports or documents with the SEC, through press releases or through other public disclosure.


The information included in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including the Investor Presentation attached as Exhibit 99.1, is being “furnished” by the Company and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, unless the Company specifically states that the information is to be considered “filed” under the Exchange Act or incorporates it by reference into a filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act.


Forward-Looking Statements


This Current Report on Form 8-K and the PowerPoint presentation described above may contain forward-looking statements about the business, financial condition and prospects of the Company. Forward-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 thereon, or comparable terminology, or by discussions of strategy or objectives. Forward-looking statements relate to anticipated or expected events, activities, trends or results including BOEM lease awards based on apparent high bids. 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 the PowerPoint presentation include, without limitation, the Company’s expectations of oil and oil equivalents, barrels of oil and gas resources in an underexplored region, prospects leased, profitable prospects, dollar amounts of value creation, cost estimates, discounted present value calculations, 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 Regulations S-K (“SEC Oil and Gas Industry Disclosures”). The estimates of recoverable resources used in the PowerPoint 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 possible reserves consistent with the SEC Oil and Gas Industry Disclosures. 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. Security holders are cautioned that such forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties. The forward-looking statements contained in the PowerPoint presentation speak only as of the date of the PowerPoint presentation, and the Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to report any updates or revisions to any such statement to reflect any change in the Company’s expectations or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based. Certain factors may cause results to differ materially from those anticipated by some of the statements made in the PowerPoint presentation. Please carefully review our filings with the SEC as we have identified many risk factors 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 or the SEC's website at http://www.sec.gov/.
