Management Comments 
Mr. Gary C. Evans, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer
of Magnum Hunter, commented, "Our Board of Directors, through the
Governance Committee of the Board, conducted a search for a new board
member that would bring to our Board significant accounting and
financial reporting expertise in the oil and gas area. We really did
not expect to find an individual that easily "checked all the boxes"
like Rocky. We are excited to announce his appointment today. He is a
man of integrity and will be a tremendous sounding board for our new
Chief Financial Officer and a liaison to BDO USA, LLP, our new
accounting firm that completed our 2012 audit, after having served so
many years in a position of prominence in the energy sector with
another large public accounting firm."
