Announced reinstatement of quarterly dividend of $0.02 per share
Increased full-year production guidance for crude oil, natural gas and NGL

"QEP delivered solid performance in the second quarter, demonstrating significant progress on a number of fronts. The Company has completed its formal strategic review process and accelerated its transition to a high-performance, low-cost operator focused on free cash flow generation and returning capital to shareholders. We have increased annual production guidance for crude oil, natural gas and NGL, lowered CAPEX guidance by $50 million and reduced G&A expense by 50% - over $30 million - compared with the first quarter," commented Tim Cutt, President and CEO of QEP.

"Following a comprehensive review of strategic alternatives that began in February of this year, our Board has determined that the best path to create superior value for our shareholders is to move forward as an independent company. By continuing to improve operations and reduce costs, we will have the ability to generate meaningful free cash flow, which we will deploy to strengthen our balance sheet and return capital to shareholders, beginning with our reinstated quarterly dividend. The Board remains open to shareholder input and committed to all steps to maximize shareholder value, and has decided to add two new independent directors and form an Operations Committee to build on the progress we have made to-date, and continue to improve operational performance."
