Peyto Reports Q2 2014 Results and Spuds Its 1,000th Deep Basin Well

Peyto Reports Q2 2014 Results and Spuds Its 1,000th Deep Basin Well 
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/13/14 --   Peyto Exploration
& Development Corp. (TSX: PEY) ("Peyto" or the "Company") is pleased
to present its operating and financial results for the second quarter
of the 2014 fiscal year. Profitable growth continued in the quarter
with operating(1) and profit margins(2) of 78% and 30%, respectively.
Additional highlights included: 


 
 
--  Production per share up 20%. Second quarter 2014 production increased
    24% (20% per share) to 434 MMcfe/d (72,302 boe/d) from 349 MMcfe/d
    (58,145 boe/d) in Q2 2013. 
 
--  Funds from operations per share up 42%. Generated a record $162 million
    in Funds from Operations ("FFO") in Q2 2014, up 47% (42% per share) from
    $110 million in Q2 2013, due to increased production volumes and
    improved commodity prices. 
 
--  Cash costs of $1.17/Mcfe. Total cash costs, including royalties,
    operating costs, transportation, G&A and interest, were $1.17/Mcfe
    ($6.99/boe) up 7% from $1.09/Mcfe in Q2 2013, due primarily to higher
    royalties, driven by higher commodity prices. Excluding royalties, cash
    costs were 6% lower at $0.72/Mcfe ($4.30/boe) than Q2 2013. Higher
    revenues, combined with total cash costs, resulted in a Q2 2014 cash
    netback of $4.09/Mcfe ($24.56/boe) or a 78% operating margin. 
 
--  Capital investment of $151 million. A total of 31 gross wells were
    drilled in the second quarter, with traditional spring breakup causing
    little interruption to field operations. New wells brought on production
    over the last 12 months accounted for 36,300 boe/d at the end of the
    quarter, which, when combined with trailing twelve month capital of
    $665.8 million, equates to an annualized capital efficiency of
    $18,340/boe/d. 
 
--  Earnings of $0.41/share, dividends of $0.28/share. Earnings of $62
    million were generated in the quarter while dividends of $43 million
    were paid to shareholders, representing a before tax payout ratio of 27%
    of FFO. The monthly dividend was increased 25% to $0.10/share effective
    May 2014. 
 
--  Drilling milestone achieved. On August 13, 2014 the Company spud its
    1,000th well at 16-28-54-21W5 in Sundance. 

Second Quarter 2014 in Review 
Peyto had a very active second quarter despite spring breakup, which
is the traditional period of reduced activity. Pad drilling, combined
with active road maintenance in the Greater Sundance area, allowed
for continuous drilling operations with an average of 8 rigs running
throughout the quarter. This allowed the Company to maintain the
industry leading capital efficiencies that have been achieved over
the last few years, again adding new production for approximately
$18,000/boe/d. While new production additions offset the base well
declines, overall production growth was partially impeded by downtime
and unscheduled disruptions caused by higher sales line pressures and
power outages. Second quarter production averaged 72,302 boe/d, up
slightly from the first quarter. Peyto also expanded its owned and
operated gas plant capacity in the quarter, adding an aggregate of
7,000 boe/d at the Wildhay, Swanson, and Brazeau River gas plants.
This additional capacity will accommodate new production volumes
resulting from the balance of the 2014 drilling program. Both natural
gas and propane prices were slightly lower than the previous quarter,
but so were Peyto's cash costs, resulting in cash netbacks that were
approximately the same. The realized cash netbacks for the first half
of 2014 are still up substantially (19%) from the previous year.
These higher cash netbacks, combined with record production levels,
lead to quarterly FFO of $162 million, or $1.05/share. The strong
financial and operating performance delivered in the quarter resulted
in an annualized 19% Return on Equity (ROE) and 14% Return on Capital
Employed (ROCE). 


 
 
1.  Operating Margin is defined as funds from operations divided by revenue
    before royalties but including realized hedging gains/losses. 
2.  Profit Margin is defined as net earnings for the quarter divided by
    revenue before royalties but including realized hedging gains/losses.
    Natural gas volumes recorded in thousand cubic feet (mcf) are converted
    to barrels of oil equivalent (boe) using the ratio of six (6) thousand
    cubic feet to one (1) barrel of oil (bbl). Natural gas liquids and oil
    volumes in barrel of oil (bbl) are converted to thousand cubic feet
    equivalent (Mcfe) using a ratio of one (1) barrel of oil to six (6)
    thousand cubic feet. This could be misleading, particularly if used in
    isolation as it is based on an energy equivalency conversion method
    primarily applied at the burner tip and does not represent a value
    equivalency at the wellhead.

(i) Funds from operations - Management uses funds from operations to analyze
the operating performance of its energy assets. In order to facilitate      
comparative analysis, funds from operations is defined throughout this      
report as earnings before performance based compensation, non-cash and non- 
recurring expenses. Management believes that funds from operations is an    
important parameter to measure the value of an asset when combined with     
reserve life. Funds from operations is not a measure recognized by Canadian 
generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and does not have a       
standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP. Therefore, funds from operations,  
as defined by Peyto, may not be comparable to similar measures presented by 
other issuers, and investors are cautioned that funds from operations should
not be construed as an alternative to net earnings, cash flow from operating
activities or other measures of financial performance calculated in         
accordance with GAAP. Funds from operations cannot be assured and future    
distributions may vary.                                                     

Exploration & Development 
Peyto's second quarter 2014 activity continued to focus on the many
stacked resource plays in the Alberta Deep Basin, with all zones
yielding liquids rich, sweet natural gas. A total of 31 wells were
drilled across the land base, targeting the many prospective zones,
as shown in the following table:

The majority of the activity in the quarter focused within the greater
Sundance area where access to existing roads and leases was
available. 
Capital Expenditures 
Over the course of the second quarter, Peyto spent $68.5 million to
drill 31 gross (28.2 net) horizontal wells and $48.0 million to
complete 30 gross (28.0 net) wells. Additionally, 32 gross (29.8 net)
wells were brought onstream with $10.3 million of wellsite equipment
and gathering pipelines. Major facility capital investment amounted
to $16.3 million and included the installation and commissioning of
an eighth compressor at the Wildhay gas plant (adding 10 MMcf/d
capacity), the twinning of the Wildhay sales pipeline (providing 35
MMcf/d of additional sales gas transmission capacity), the
installation of a large gathering line between the Oldman and
Nosehill plants to take advantage of spare Nosehill plant capacity,
and the commissioning of a fourth compressor at the Swanson Plant
(adding 18 MMcf/d). A refrigeration plant and an additional
compressor was also installed at the Brazeau River gas plant (adding
10 MMcf/d). Lastly, $1.0 million was directed towards preparation and
fabrication for the planned Oldman North plant expansion (adding 40
MMcf/d with expected start-up in October).  
During the second quarter, Peyto invested $5.9 million at Alberta
Crown land sales on highly prospective Wilrich lands adjacent to the
company's existing Deep Basin land position. A total of 11 net
sections (containing 34 internally identified new drilling locations)
were added for $833/acre. Additionally, $2.3 million was spent on the
acquisition of trade seismic data to support ongoing technical work
in the Brazeau and Sundance areas.  
By the end of the quarter, the 32 gross (29.8 net) wells brought
onstream in Q2 2014 were contributing 14,850 boe/d to the quarter end
exit rate of 73,000 boe/d.  
Financial Results 
Daily natural gas prices in Alberta (AECO) averaged $4.44/GJ in Q2
2014, while monthly AECO prices averaged $4.43/GJ. As Peyto had
committed 88% of its production to the monthly price, Peyto realized
a volume weighted average natural gas price of $4.44/GJ or $5.02/mcf,
prior to a $0.65/mcf hedging loss. 
Peyto realized a blended oil and natural gas liquids price of
$77.58/bbl in Q2 2014, prior to a $0.28/bbl hedging loss, for its
blend of condensate, pentane, butane and propane, which represented
74% of the $104.30/bbl average Edmonton light oil price.  
Combining realized natural gas and liquids prices, Peyto's unhedged
revenues totaled $5.85/Mcfe ($5.26/Mcfe including hedging losses), or
132% of the dry gas price, illustrating the benefit of high heat
content, liquids rich natural gas production.  
Royalties of $0.45/Mcfe, operating costs of $0.36/Mcfe,
transportation costs of $0.13/Mcfe, G&A of $0.01/Mcfe and interest
costs of $0.22/Mcfe, combined for total cash costs of $1.17/Mcfe
($6.99/boe). These industry leading total cash costs resulted in a
cash netback of $4.09/Mcfe ($24.52/boe) or a 78% operating margin. 
Royalties per Mcfe were up 40% due to higher natural gas and liquids
prices while operating costs were in line with the previous year but
down from the previous quarter as methanol and maintenance costs were
lower. 
Depletion, depreciation and amortization charges of $1.73/Mcfe, along
with a provision for future tax and market based bonus payments
reduced the cash netback to earnings of $1.57/Mcfe, or a 30% profit
margin, which funded dividends of $1.09/Mcfe.  
Subsequent to the second quarter, Peyto issued CDN $50 million of
senior unsecured notes pursuant to a note purchase and private shelf
agreement. The notes have a coupon rate of 3.79% and mature on July
3, 2022. As the notes rank equally with Peyto's obligations under its
bank facility and existing note purchase agreements, Peyto's
aggregate borrowing capacity increased by $50 million to $1.32
billion.  
Marketing 
For the quarter, approximately 63% of Peyto's natural gas production
received a fixed price of $3.53/GJ from hedges that were put in place
over the previous 16 months, while the balance received the blended
daily and monthly price of $4.44/GJ, resulting in an after-hedge
price of $3.87/GJ or $4.37/mcf.  
Peyto's practice of layering in future sales in the form of fixed
price swaps, and thus smoothing out the volatility in gas prices,
continued throughout the quarter. The following table summarizes the
remaining hedged volumes and prices for the upcoming years, as of
August 1, 2014.

(1) liquids prices are Peyto realized prices in Canadian dollars adjusted   
for fractionation and transportation.                                       

As a fixed offset to benchmark pricing can no longer be obtained for
Propane and Butane prices, Peyto has discontinued the practice of
forward selling these components of its natural gas liquids. 
Activity Update 
Continuous operations, through break-up and into the summer months,
has been very successful in accelerating the 2014 capital plans
resulting in strong production growth over the past two months. Well
results throughout all geographic areas and across all zones,
particularly the Notikewin, Falher and Wilrich formations in
Sundance, Obed and Ansell areas, have provided steady growth from an
average of 71,500 boe/d in April to an average of 74,800 boe/d in
July. Most recently, August daily production has averaged 78,500
boe/d. Peyto remains on track to meet or exceed previous guidance of
$625 million of capital and exit production of 81,500 boe/d. 
Currently, the Company has all 9 of its drilling rigs active, with
four completion spreads following up, and anticipates maintaining
this activity level through to year end. One rig is currently
drilling at Brazeau but will be accompanied by a second rig this
fall. A major 23 km gathering line linking the Peyto Brazeau Gas
Plant to the Company's south acreage is in progress and is expected
to be completed by early October which will connect a 6 well program
to be drilled in that area. Focused drilling in the heart of Sundance
for Notikewin, Falher, Wilrich and Bluesky targets is also programmed
and will serve to fill the 40 MMcf/d of new Oldman North Plant
capacity.  
On August 13, 2014, Peyto celebrated the spudding of its 1,000th gas
well in the Alberta Deep Basin at 16-28-54-21W5M in Sundance.
Remarkably, this location is directly adjacent to Peyto's original
recompletion in Sundance at 15-30 -54-21W5M, which continues to
produce some 15 years later. Over the last five years Peyto has
drilled over 400 natural gas wells, making Peyto the most active
Alberta Deep Basin gas driller. While there are many stories told of
the significant resource potential in the Alberta Deep Basin, Peyto
has been the one turning that potential into reality and the Company
continues to be an industry leader when it comes to profitable
resource development.  
Outlook  
Natural gas prices in both Canada and the US have recently softened
as record US production and mild summer weather has refilled storage
reservoirs faster than expected. This brings future natural gas
prices in Canada back into Peyto's "sweet spot" where significant
profitable development can occur in Peyto's many Deep Basin resource
plays without the risk of increased activity driving cost inflation
and eroding returns.  
At no point in Peyto's history has the Company had more opportunities
than it does today and yet the team at Peyto continues to find
additional new lands and drilling locations faster than they can be
harvested. As demand for natural gas in North America continues to
expand, Peyto is well positioned to keep applying its low cost
advantage and delivering superior returns on invested capital.

Notes to Condensed Financial Statements (unaudited)

1.  Nature of operations 

Peyto Exploration & Development Corp. ("Peyto" or the "Company") is a
Calgary based oil and natural gas company. Peyto conducts
exploration, development and production activities in Canada. Peyto
is incorporated and domiciled in the Province of Alberta, Canada. The
address of its registered office is 1500, 250 - 2nd Street SW,
Calgary, Alberta, Canada, T2P 0C1. 
These financial statements were approved and authorized for issuance
by the Audit Committee of Peyto on August 12, 2014. 


 
 
2.  Basis of presentation 

The condensed financial statements have been prepared by management and
reported in Canadian dollars in accordance with International
Accounting Standard ("IAS") 34, "Interim Financial Reporting". These
condensed financial statements do not include all of the information
required for full annual financial statements and should be read in
conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements as
at and for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012. 
Significant Accounting Policies 
(a) Significant Accounting Judgments, Estimates and Assumptions 
The timely preparation of the condensed financial statements requires
management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported
amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingencies,
if any, as at the date of the financial statements and the reported
amounts of revenue and expenses during the period. By their nature,
estimates are subject to measurement uncertainty and changes in such
estimates in future years could require a material change in the
condensed financial statements. 
Except as disclosed below, all accounting policies and methods of
computation followed in the preparation of these financial statements
are the same as those disclosed in Note 2 of Peyto's financial
statements as at and for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.  
(b) Recent Accounting Pronouncements 
Certain new standards, interpretations, amendments and improvements
to existing standards were issued by the International Accounting
Standards Board (IASB) or International Financial Reporting
Interpretations Committee (IFRIC) that are mandatory for accounting
periods beginning January 1, 2014 or later periods. The affected
standards are consistent with those disclosed in Peyto's financial
statements as at and for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.  
Peyto adopted the following standards on January 1, 2014: 
IAS 36 "Impairment of Assets" has been amended to reduce the
circumstances in which the recoverable amount of cash generating
units "CGUs" are required to be disclosed and clarify the disclosures
required when an impairment loss has been recognized or reversed in
the period. The retrospective adoption of these amendments will only
impact Peyto's disclosures in the notes to the financial statements
in periods when an impairment loss or impairment reversal is
recognized. 
IFRIC 21 "Levies" was developed by the IFRS Interpretations Committee
("IFRIC") and is applicable to all levies imposed by governments
under legislation, other than outflows that are within the scope of
other standards (e.g., IAS 12 "Income Taxes") and fines or other
penalties for breaches of legislation. The interpretation clarifies
that an entity recognizes a liability for a levy when the activity
that triggers payment, as identified by the relevant legislation,
occurs. It also clarifies that a levy liability is accrued
progressively only if the activity that triggers payment occurs over
a period of time, in accordance with the relevant legislation.
Lastly, the interpretation clarifies that a liability should not be
recognized before the specified minimum threshold to trigger that
levy is reached. The retrospective adoption of this interpretation
does not have any impact on Peyto's financial statements 
Standards issued but not yet effective 
IFRS 9, as issued, reflects part of the IASB's work on the
replaceme
nt of IAS 39 "Financial Instruments: Recognition and
Measurement" and applies to classification and measurement of
financial assets and financial liabilities as defined in IAS 39 and
hedging transactions. The standard has no effective date. In
subsequent phases, the IASB will address impairment of financial
assets. The adoption of IFRS 9 may have an effect on the
classification and measurement of the company's financial assets and
financial liabilities. The Company will quantify the effect in
conjunction with the other phases, when the final standard including
all phases is issued with an effective date. 
In May 2014, the IASB issued IFRS 15 "Revenue from Contracts with
Customers," which replaces IAS 18 "Revenue," IAS 11 "Construction
Contracts," and related interpretations. The standard is required to

As at June 30, 2014, the Company had a syndicated $1 billion extendible
revolving credit facility with a stated term date of April 25, 2017.
The bank facility is made up of a $30 million working capital
sub-tranche and a $970 million production line. The facilities are
available on a revolving basis for a three year period. Borrowings
under the facility bear interest at Canadian bank prime or US base
rate, or, at Peyto's option, Canadian dollar bankers' acceptances or
US dollar LIBOR loan rates, plus applicable margin and stamping fees.
The total stamping fees range between 50 basis points and 215 basis
points on Canadian bank prime and US base rate borrowings and between
150 basis points and 315 basis points on Canadian dollar bankers'
acceptance and US dollar LIBOR borrowings. The undrawn portion of the
facility is subject to a standby fee in the range of 30 to 63 basis
points. 
On July 3, 2014, Peyto issued CDN $50 million of senior unsecured
notes pursuant to a note purchase and private shelf agreement. The
notes were issued by way of private placement and rank equally with
Peyto's obligations under its bank facility. The notes have a coupon
rate of 3.79% and mature on July 3, 2022. Interest is paid
semi-annually in arrears.  
Peyto is subject to the following financial covenants as defined in
the credit facility and note purchase agreements: 


 
 
--  Long-term debt plus the average working capital deficiency (surplus) at
    the end of the two most recently completed fiscal quarters adjusted for
    non-cash items not to exceed 3.0 times trailing twelve month net income
    before non-cash items, interest and income taxes;  
--  Long-term debt and subordinated debt plus the average working capital
    deficiency (surplus) at the end of the two most recently completed
    fiscal quarters adjusted for non-cash items not to exceed 4.0 times
    trailing twelve month net income before non-cash items, interest and
    income taxes;  
--  Trailing twelve months net income before non-cash items, interest and
    income taxes to exceed 3.0 times trailing twelve months interest
    expense;  
--  Long-term debt and subordinated debt plus the average working capital
    deficiency (surplus) at the end of the two most recently completed
    fiscal quarters adjusted for non-cash items not to exceed 55 per cent of
    the book value of shareholders' equity and long-term debt and
    subordinated debt. 

Peyto is in compliance with all financial covenants at June 30, 2014. 
Total interest expense for the three and six month periods ended June
30, 2014 was $8.5 million and $17.3 million (2013 - $8.0 million and
$14.3 million) and the average borrowing rate for the period was 4.2%
and 4.3% (2013 - 4.2% and 4.1%).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Balance, June 30, 2014                                                74,125

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Peyto has estimated the net present value of its total decommissioning
provision to be $74.1 million as at June 30, 2014 ($61.2 million at
December 31, 2013) based on a total future undiscounted liability of
$185.4 million ($177.8 million at December 31, 2013). At June 30,
2014 management estimates that these payments are expected to be made
over the next 50 years with the majority of payments being made in
years 2040 to 2063. The Bank of Canada's long term bond rate of 2.78
per cent (3.24 per cent at December 31, 2013) and an inflation rate
of two per cent (two per cent at December 31, 2013) were used to
calculate the present value of the decommissioning provision.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

On December 31, 2013, Peyto completed a private placement of 190,525
common shares to employees and consultants for net proceeds of $6.2
million ($32.78 per share). These common shares were issued January
8, 2014 
On February 5, 2014, Peyto closed an offering for 4,720,000 common
shares at a price of $34.00 per common share, receiving net proceeds
of $153.6 million.  
On March 17, 2014, Peyto completed a private placement of 21,360
common shares to employees and consultants for net proceeds of $ 0.8
million ($35.20 per common share).  
Dividends 
During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014, Peyto
declared and paid dividends of $0.28 and $0.52 per common share
($0.08 per common share per month for January to April and $0.10 per
common share for the months of May and June), totaling $42.9 million
and $79.5 million respectively (2013 - $0.22 and $0.40 or $0.06 per
share for the months of January to April and $0.08 for the months of
May and June, $32.7 million and $59.5 million).  
Comprehensive income 
Comprehensive income consists of earnings and other comprehensive
income ("OCI"). OCI comprises the change in the fair value of the
effective portion of the derivatives used as hedging items in a cash
flow hedge. "Accumulated other comprehensive income" is an equity
category comprised of the cumulative amounts of OCI. 
Accumulated hedging gains 
Gains and losses from cash flow hedges are accumulated until settled.
These outstanding hedging contracts are recognized in earnings on
settlement with gains and losses being recognized as a component of
net revenue. Further information on these contracts is set out in
Note 8.  


 
 
7.  Future performance based compensation 

Peyto awards performance based compensation to employees annually. The
performance based compensation is comprised of reserve and market
value based components. 
Reserve based component 
The reserves value based component is 4% of the incremental increase
in value, if any, as adjusted to reflect changes in debt, equity,
dividends, general and administrative costs and interest, of proved
producing reserves calculated using a constant price at December 31
of the current year and a discount rate of 8%.  
Market based component 
Under the market based component, rights with a three year vesting
period are allocated to employees. The number of rights outstanding
at any time is not to exceed 6% of the total number of common shares
outstanding. At December 31 of each year, all vested rights are
automatically cancelled and, if applicable, paid out in cash.
Compensation is calculated as the number of vested rights multiplied
by the total of the market appreciation (over the price at the date
of grant) and associated dividends of a common share for that period. 
The fair values were calculated using a Black-Scholes valuation
model. The principal inputs to the option valuation model were:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
8.  Financial instruments 

Financial instrument classification and measurement 
Financial instruments of the Company carried on the condensed balance
sheet are carried at amortized cost with the exception of cash and
financial derivative instruments, specifically fixed price contracts,
which are carried at fair value. There are no significant differences
between the carrying amount of financial instruments and their
estimated fair values as at June 30, 2014. 
The Company's areas of financial risk management and risks related to
financial instruments remained unchanged from December 31, 2013. 
The fair value of the Company's cash and financial derivative
instruments are quoted in active markets. The Company classifies the
fair value of these transactions according to the following
hierarchy. 


 
 
--  Level 1 - quoted prices in active markets for identical financial
    instruments. 
--  Level 2 - quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets;
    quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are
    not active; and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs
    and value drivers are observable in active markets. 
--  Level 3 - valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or
    more significant inputs or value drivers are unobservable. 

The Company's cash and financial derivative instruments have been
assessed on the fair value hierarchy described above and classified
as Level 1. 
Fair values of financial assets and liabilities 
The Company's financial instruments include cash, accounts
receivable, financial derivative instruments, due from private
placement, current liabilities, provision for future performance
based compensation and long term debt. At June 30, 2014, cash and
financial derivative instruments are carried at fair value. Accounts
receivable, due from private placement, current liabilities and
provision for future performance based compensation approximate their
fair value due to their short term nature. The carrying value of the
long term debt approximates its fair value due to the floating rate
of interest charged under the credit facility. 
Commodity price risk management 
Peyto uses derivative instruments to reduce its exposure to
fluctuations in commodity prices. Peyto considers all of these
transactions to be effective economic hedges for accounting purposes. 
Following is a summary of all risk management contracts in place as
at June 30, 2014:

As at June 30, 2014, Peyto had committed to the future sale of 120,000
barrels of propane at an average price of $43.81 CAD ($41.03 USD) per
barrel and 94,362,500 gigajoules (GJ) of natural gas at an average
price of $3.71 per GJ or $4.26 per mcf. Had these contracts been
closed on June 30, 2014, Peyto would have realized a net loss in the
amount of $43.2 million. If the AECO gas price on June 30, 2014 were
to increase by $1/GJ, the unrealized loss would increase by
approximately $94.4 million. An opposite change in commodity prices
rates would result in an opposite impact on other comprehensive
income.  
Subsequent to June 30, 2014 Peyto entered into the following
contracts:

10. Contingencies 

On October 31, 2013, Peyto was named as a party to a statement of claim
received with respect to transactions between Poseidon Concepts Corp.
and Open Range Energy Corp. On July 3, 2014, the Plaintiffs filed a
lawsuit with the Court against KPMG LLP, Poseidon's and Old Open
Range's former auditors, making allegations substantially similar to
those in the other claims. On July 29, 2014, KPMG LLP filed a
statement of defense and a third party claim against Poseidon, the
Company and the former directors and officers of Poseidon. The third
party claim seeks, among other things, an indemnity, or alternatively
contribution, from the third party defendants with respect to any
judgment awarded against KPMG LLP. The allegations contained in these
claims are based on factual matters that pre-existed Peyto's
involvement with New Open Range. However, Peyto intends to
aggressively protect its interests and the interests of its
shareholders and will seek all available legal remedies in defending
the action. Management continues to assess the nature of this claim,
in conjunction with their legal advisors.
