Quicksilver Resources ( KWK) – no respect for the effort

Glenn M. Darden – Chief Executive Officer, President, Director and Member of Equity Awards Committee

Thank you, David. Good morning. Today, Quicksilver reported earnings for the fourth quarter and for the full year 2013. For the fourth quarter of ’13, we had an adjusted net loss of $5 million. The full year reported earnings were positively impacted by the sale of the Barnett properties to Tokyo Gas. And John Regan, our Chief Financial Officer, will give you the financial detail following my remarks.

Quicksilver’s concentration has been on improving the company’s balance sheet and liquidity, and as a result, 2013 was more of a defensive year. On the financial front, we lowered net company debt approximately $300 million to the end of the year. We also refinanced $1.1 billion of company bond debt, which reduced interest expense and extended debt maturities by 2.5 years. We have relied on asset sales to lower debt.
