Period that its Mississippian assets consisted of significantly higher
low-margin natural gas deposits and significantly lower high-margin oil
deposits than the Company had led investors to believe, that mechanical issues
causing a slowdown of the Company's drilling operations in the Gulf of Mexico,
and that the Company's true purpose for its $1.3 billion acquisition of
Dynamic Offshore Resources was to provide a financing vehicle for the
Company's onshore drilling projects. According to the Complaint, following the
Company's November 8, 2012 disclosure that it had been grossly overstating the
proportion of oil-producing versus natural-gas-producing assets in the
Mississippian formation and that it intended to sell its interest in the
Company's highest-margin oil producing assets, the value of SandRidge shares
declined significantly.
