LBITDA was $1,339.120 million a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $147.628 million. Cash flow from operation was $124 million. Total cash capital expenditure was $233 million. Negative free cash flow before financing activities was $67 million. For the year, net loss was $1,420.581 million. LBITDA was $1,634.700 million a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $663.234 million against $775 million a year ago. Cash flow from operation was $488 million against $689 million a year ago.

Net debt as on date is $3,881 million against $3,553 million a year ago. The decline in revenue was driven by decreased oil and natural gas and NGL volumes, which was partially offset by improved realized natural gas pricing. The company is estimating first quarter 2015 production between 515 million and 525 million cubic feet a day equivalent as we're counting for the Arkoma divestiture.
