Recorded a mark-to-market value of the Company’s commodity hedge position of approximately $138 million as of May 6, 2020.

John A. Brooks, President and Chief Executive Officer of Penn Virginia commented, “Given the unprecedented situation facing the entire industry, Penn Virginia has taken proactive steps to protect our financial position and manage our operations. These actions include early completion of our borrowing base redetermination, halting all drilling and completion activity, and curtailing a portion of our current production. We came into this environment with attractive leverage, a low-cost structure, and a strong hedge position, all of which create significant financial flexibility and allows us to focus on shareholder returns. We’ve since bolstered that hedge book so that it is comprised of a significant amount of ‘Put’ positions in the second and third quarters of 2020, over and above our expected production. These incremental puts are designed to create significant protection for the Company and additional free cash flow in a declining oil price environment but also allow for strong participation in the upside of a rising oil price environment. We have already realized the benefits of our initial hedges, which allowed us to generate free cash flow in the first quarter and expect, at current strip prices, that we will produce significant free cash flow in 2020. This position allows us to aggressively pay down our debt while prices are low, but stand ready to re-engage development operations as soon as prices recover to justify our well returns. In all cases, we remain focused on capital discipline and cash on cash returns for our shareholders.
