Forward Looking Statements and Related Matters 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. Examples include discussions as to our expectations, beliefs, plans, goals, objectives and future financial or other performance. These statements, by their nature, involve estimates, projections, forecasts and uncertainties that could cause actual results or outcomes to differ substantially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements. The words “may,” “forecast,” “outlook,” “could,” “budget,” “objectives,” “strategy,” “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “project,” “prospective,” “target,” “goal,” “plan,” “should,” “will,” “predict,” “guidance,” “may increase”, “may fluctuate”, “potential” or other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Other than historical facts included in this presentation, all information and statements, including but not limited to information regarding certain plans, expectations, goals, projections and statements about the benefits of the proposed transaction, the merger parties’ plans, objectives, expectations and intentions, the expected timing of completion of the proposed transaction, planned capital expenditures, estimated reserves, estimated production targets and commodity mix, estimated pre-tax wellhead rates of return, estimated future operating costs and other expenses and other financial measures, estimated future tax rates, drilling and development plans, the timing of production, and other plans and objectives for future operations, are forward-looking statements. Although, as of the date of this presentation, Newfield Exploration Company (the “Company” or “Newfield”) believes that these expectations are reasonable, this information is based upon assumptions and anticipated results that are subject to numerous uncertainties and risks, some of which are beyond Newfield’s control and are difficult to predict. No assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been correct. Actual results may vary significantly from those anticipated due to many factors, including but not limited to commodity prices and our ability to hedge commodity prices; drilling results; changes in commodity mix; accessibility to economic transportation modes and processing facilities; our liquidity and the availability of capital resources; operating risks, failures and hazards; industry conditions; governmental regulations in the areas in which we operate, including water regulations; financial counterparty risks; the prices of goods and services; the availability of drilling rigs and other oilfield services; our ability to monetize assets and repay or refinance our existing indebtedness; labor conditions; severe weather conditions; new regulations or changes in tax or environmental legislation; environmental liabilities not covered by indemnity or insurance; legislation or regulatory initiatives intended to address seismic activity or induced seismicity; the possibility that the proposed transaction does not close when expected or at all because required regulatory, shareholder or other approvals are not received; other changes to business or employee relationships, including those resulting from the announcement or completion of the transaction; uncertainties as to the timing of the transaction; competitive responses to the proposed transaction; the possibility that the anticipated benefits of the transaction are not realized when expected or at all, including as a result of the impact of, or problems arising from, the integration of the two companies; the possibility that the proposed transaction may be more expensive to complete than anticipated, including as a result of unexpected factors or events; diversion of management’s attention from ongoing business operations and opportunities; the ability of Encana Corporation (“Encana”) to complete the acquisition and integration of the Company successfully; litigation relating to the proposed transaction; and other factors that may affect the future results of the Company or Encana. Please see Newfield’s 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and other subsequent public filings, all filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), for a discussion of other factors that may cause actual results to vary. Unpredictable or unknown factors not discussed herein or in Newfield’s SEC filings could also have material adverse effects on Newfield’s actual results as compared to its anticipated results. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this presentation and are not guarantees of performance. Unless legally required, Newfield undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
Forward Looking Statements and Related Matters (continued) Market and Statistical Information This presentation has been prepared by Newfield and includes market data and other statistical information from sources believed by Newfield to be reliable, including independent industry publications, government publications or other published independent sources. Some data are also based on Newfield’s good faith estimates, which are derived from its review of internal sources as well as the independent sources described above. Although Newfield believes these sources are reliable, it has not independently verified the information and cannot guarantee its accuracy and completeness. Reserves Disclosure Actual quantities that may be ultimately recovered from Newfield’s assets may differ substantially from the estimates in this presentation. Factors affecting ultimate recovery include the scope of Newfield’s ongoing drilling program, which will be directly affected by commodity prices (including our ability to hedge commodity prices) and our pre-tax wellhead rates of return, the availability of capital, drilling and production costs, availability of drilling services and equipment, drilling results, lease expirations, transportation and processing constraints, regulatory approvals and other factors, and actual drilling results, including geological and mechanical factors affecting recovery rates and commodity mix. Newfield may use terms in this presentation, such as “EURs,” “unrisked locations,” “risked locations,” “net effective reservoir acreage,” “upside potential,” “net unrisked resource,” “gross EURs,” and similar terms that the SEC’s guidelines strictly prohibit in SEC filings. These terms include reserves with substantially less certainty than proved reserves, and no discount or other adjustment is included in the presentation of such reserve numbers. Investors are urged to consider closely the oil and gas disclosures in Newfield’s 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent public filings, available at www.newfield.com, www.sec.gov or by writing Newfield at 4 Waterway Square Place, Suite 100, The Woodlands, Texas 77380 Attn: Investor Relations. Non-GAAP Financial Measures In addition, this presentation contains non-GAAP financial measures, which include, but are not limited to, Adjusted EBITDA, Net Debt and Free Cash Flow Yield. Newfield defines EBITDA as net income/loss before income tax expense/benefit, interest expense and depreciation, depletion and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented herein, is EBITDA before ceiling test impairments, gains/losses on asset sales, non-cash compensation expense, net unrealized (gains) / losses on commodity derivatives and other permitted adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized term under GAAP and does not represent net income as defined under GAAP, and should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indicator of operating performance or to cash flows as a measure of liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental financial measure used by Newfield’s management and by securities analysts, lenders, ratings agencies and others who follow the industry as an indicator of Newfield’s ability to internally fund exploration and development activities. Net Debt is defined as the principal amount of debt less cash and cash equivalents. Net Debt is a supplemental financial measure used by Newfield’s management and by securities analysts, lenders, rating agencies and others who follow the industry as a more meaningful measure of Newfield’s outstanding indebtedness. Additionally, Free Cash Flow Yield, as presented herein, is calculated as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities minus capital expenditures, divided by current market capitalization. Free Cash Flow Yield is not a recognized term under GAAP and does not represent net cash provided by (used in) operating activities as defined under GAAP, and should not be considered an alternative to net cash provided by (used in) operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental financial measure used by Newfield’s management and by securities analysts, lenders, ratings agencies and others who follow the industry as an indicator of the Company’s ability to internally fund operating activities.
