“In January of 2015, Laredo took the steps we felt were necessary at the time for the Company to continue to efficiently operate in an extended low commodity price environment while refining and enhancing the Company’s development plan for its Permian-Garden City acreage,” commented Randy A. Foutch, Laredo Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We recognized the potential of a longer duration commodity price downturn and took appropriate measures. Within the first 70 days of 2015, we drastically reduced our capital budget, reduced our workforce by approximately 20% and completely restructured our balance sheet by executing equity and debt offerings with a combined value of more than $1 billion. These measures, coupled with hedges protecting all of our 2015 oil and natural gas production, enabled the Company to essentially operate within cash flow by mid-2015.”
