Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements FORWARD-LOOKING AND CAUTIONARY STATEMENTS This presentation contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, included in this presentation that address activities, events or developments that Penn Virginia or Lonestar expects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. Words such as estimate, project, predict, believe, expect, anticipate, potential, create, intend, could, would, may, plan, will, guidance, look, goal, future, build, focus, continue, strive, allow or the negative of such terms or other variations thereof and words and terms of similar substance used in connection with any discussion of future plans, actions, or events identify forward-looking statements. However, the absence of these words does not mean that the statements are not forward-looking. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, (1) Penn Virginias future production and capital expenditures, its ability to maintain low cost structure, the impact of Gulf Coast pricing, the benefits of its hedge positions and resumption of the drilling program, and its ability to manage leverage and operate within cash flow, and (2) statements regarding the Proposed Transaction with Lonestar described herein and as adjusted descriptions of the post-Proposed Transaction company and its operations, integration, debt levels, acreage, well performance, development plans, per unit costs, ability to maintain production within cash flow, production, cash flows, synergies, type curves, opportunities and anticipated future performance. Information adjusted for the Proposed Transaction should not be considered a forecast of future results. There are a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements included in this presentation. These include the possibility that shareholders of Penn Virginia may not approve the issuance of new shares of Penn Virginia common stock in the Proposed Transaction or that shareholders of Lonestar may not approve the Merger Agreement; the risk that a condition to closing of the Proposed Transaction may not be satisfied, that either party may terminate the Merger Agreement or that the closing of the Proposed Transaction might be delayed or not occur at all; potential adverse reactions or changes to business or employee relationships, including those resulting from the announcement or completion of the Proposed Transaction; the parties do not receive regulatory approval of the Proposed Transaction; the risk that changes in Penn Virginias capital structure and governance, including its status as a controlled company, could have adverse effects on the market value of its securities; the ability of Penn Virginia to retain customers and retain and hire key personnel and maintain relationships with its suppliers and customers and on Penn Virginias operating results and business generally; the risk the Proposed Transaction could distract management from ongoing business operations or cause Penn Virginia to incur substantial costs; the risk that the expanded acreage footprint does not allow for longer laterals, lower per unit operating expenses, and increased number of wells per pad as expected; the ability of Penn Virginia to develop drilling locations, which do not represent oil and gas reserves, into production or proved reserves; the risk that Penn Virginia may be unable to reduce expenses or access financing or liquidity; the risk that Penn Virginia does not realize expected benefits of its hedges; the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, any related economic downturn and any related substantial decline in demand for oil and natural gas; the risk of changes in governmental regulations or enforcement practices, especially with respect to environmental, health and safety matters; and other important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. All such factors are difficult to predict and are beyond Penn Virginias control, including those detailed in Penn Virginias Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K that are available on Penn Virginias website at www.pennvirginia.com and on the website of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) at www.sec.gov. All forward-looking statements are based on assumptions that Penn Virginia believes to be reasonable but that may not prove to be accurate. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and Penn Virginia undertakes no obligation to correct or update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. Definitions Proved reserves are those quantities of oil and gas which, by analysis of geosciences and engineering data, can be estimated with reasonable certainty to be economically producible from a given date forward, from known reservoirs, and under existing economic conditions, operating methods and government regulation before the time at which contracts providing the right to operate expire, unless evidence indicates that renewal is reasonably certain, regardless of whether the estimate is a deterministic estimate or probabilistic estimate. Proved developed reserves are proved reserves that can be expected to be recovered: (a) through existing wells with existing equipment and operating methods or in which the cost of the required equipment is relatively minor compared with the cost of a new well; or (b) through installed extraction equipment and infrastructure operational at the time of the reserves estimate if the extraction is means not involving a well. EUR is a measure that by its nature is more speculative than estimates of reserves prepared in accordance with SEC definitions and guidelines and accordingly is less certain. Proved developed producing and total proved reserves for PVAC presented herein are based on reserve reports from DeGolyer and MacNaughton (D&M) as of 7/1/2021 and 4/1/2021, respectively (the D&M reports). Proved reserves for LONE presented herein are based on a reserve report from W.D. Von Gonten & Co. (WDVG) as of 1/1/2021 (the WDVG Report). PV-10 of PVAC is based on such D&M reports and updated for strip pricing as of 7/9/21. PV-10 of LONE is based on the WDVG Report and adjusted for actual production, lease operating and transportation costs as well as the revised actual and anticipated development plans, and based on strip pricing as of 7/9/21. Cautionary Statements The estimates and guidance presented in this presentation, including those regarding inventory of drilling locations and expected free cash flow, are based on assumptions of capital expenditure levels, prices for oil, natural gas and NGLs, current indications of supply and demand for oil, well results and operating costs. The guidance, estimates and type curves provided or used in this presentation do not constitute any form of guarantee or assurance that the matters indicated will be achieved. Statements regarding inventory are based on current information, assumptions regarding well costs, the drilling program and economics and are subject to material change. The number of locations shown as being in the Companys current estimated inventory is not a guarantee of the number of wells that will actually be drilled and completed or the results or return that will be achieved. While we believe these estimates and the assumptions on which they are based are reasonable, they are inherently uncertain and are subject to, among other things, significant business, economic, operational and regulatory risks and uncertainties and are subject to material revision. Actual results may differ materially from estimates and guidance. Market and competitive position data in this presentation has generally been obtained from industry publications and surveys or studies conducted by third-party sources. There are limitations with respect to the availability, accuracy, completeness and comparability of such data. The Company has prepared this presentation based on information available to it, including information derived from public sources that have not been independently verified, and no assurance can be given of its accuracy or completeness. Certain statements in this document regarding the market and competitive position data are based on the internal analyses of the Company, which involve certain assumptions and estimates. These internal analyses have not been verified by any independent sources, and there can be no assurance that the assumptions or estimates are accurate. Non-GAAP Financial Measures This presentation contains references to certain non-GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures presented may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies, as other companies may calculate such financial results differently. Penn Virginias or Lonestars non-GAAP financial measures are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to amounts presented in accordance with GAAP. Penn Virginia or Lonestar views these non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental and they are not intended to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial result. We present Free Cash Flow (FCF) as the excess (deficiency) of discretionary cash flow over Capital additions, net. Discretionary cash flow is defined as Adjusted EBITDAX (non-GAAP measure defined below) less interest expense, debt issue costs, other, net and adjustments for income taxes refunded and changes for working capital. Capital additions represent our committed capital expenditure and acquisition transactions, net of any proceeds from the sales or disposition of assets. Adjusted EBITDAX represents net income (loss) before loss on extinguishment of debt, interest expense, income taxes, impairments of oil and gas properties, depreciation, depletion and amortization expense and share-based compensation expense, further adjusted to include the net commodity realized settlements of derivatives and exclude the effects of gains and losses on sales of assets, non-cash changes in the fair value of derivatives, and special items including strategic transaction costs, and organizational restructuring, including severance. Net Debt, excluding unamortized discount and debt issuance costs is a non-GAAP financial measure that is defined as total principal amount of long-term debt less cash and cash equivalents. LONEs principal amount of long-term debt used to calculate Net Debt excludes its non-recourse mortgage on its corporate office building and the PPP loan for which funds are fully reserved as restricted cash to cover the balance. Cash Flow per Share (CFPS), a non-GAAP measure, is defined as net cash provided by operating activities as presented on a GAAP statement of cash flows divided by diluted shares outstanding as used to determine GAAP earnings per share. PV-10 is a non-GAAP measure that represents the estimated future net cash flows from estimated proved reserves discounted at an annual rate of 10 percent before giving effect to income taxes. PV-10 is most comparable to the Standardized Measure which represents the discounted future net cash flows of the after-tax estimated future cash flows from estimated proved reserves discounted at an annual rate of 10 percent, determined in accordance with GAAP. LTM Leverage, a non-GAAP measure, is defined as Net Debt divided by Adjusted EBITDAX. The ratios at June 30, 2021 are derived from the historical periods as reported in the respective Quarterly Reports on Forms 10-Q and Annual Report on Form 10-K for the relevant periods and include the use of preliminary estimates for the second quarter 2021. PVACs Adjusted EBITDAX for the 6 months ended December 31, 2020 used in the calculation of LTM Leverage at June 30, 2021 has been adjusted for the Juniper Proposed Transactions by $3.5 million (the Juniper Transactions as defined as reported in PVACs Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020). LONEs Adjusted EBITDAX used in the calculation of LTM Leverage at June 30, 2021 includes five months of the Predecessor period prior to emerging from bankruptcy and seven months of the Successor period following the emergence (the Predecessor and Successor periods are defined as reported in Lonestars Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020). For the second quarter 2021, LONEs Net Debt and the mid-point of its guidance for Adjusted EBITDAX was used.
