Note: Future dividends, whether base or variable, are authorized and determined by the Company's Board of Directors in its sole discretion.

The Company can provide no assurance that dividends will be authorized or declared in the future or the amount of any future dividends. Any future variable dividends, if declared and paid, will by their nature fluctuate based on the Company’s free cash flow1, which will depend on a number of factors beyond the Company’s control, including commodities prices.
