These forward-looking statements include statements, projections and estimates concerning our operations, performance, business strategy, oil, natural gas liquids ("NGL") and natural gas reserves, drilling program capital expenditures, liquidity and capital resources, the timing and success of specific projects, outcomes and effects of litigation, claims and disputes, derivative activities and potential financing.

Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of performance. These statements are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by us in light of our experience and our perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments as well as other factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. Among the factors that significantly impact our business and could impact our business in the future are:
the volatility of oil, NGL and natural gas prices, including in our area of operation in the Permian Basin;
our ability to discover, estimate, develop and replace oil, NGL and natural gas reserves and inventory;
changes in domestic and global production, supply and demand for oil, NGL and natural gas;
revisions to our reserve estimates as a result of changes in commodity prices, decline curves and other uncertainties;
the long-term performance of wells that were completed using different technologies;
the ongoing instability and uncertainty in the United States and international financial and consumer markets that could adversely affect the liquidity available to us and our customers and the demand for commodities, including oil, NGL and natural gas;
the potential impact of tighter spacing of our wells on production of oil, NGL and natural gas from our wells;
capital requirements for our operations and projects;
impacts of impairment write-downs on our financial statements;
the availability and costs of drilling and production equipment, supplies, labor and oil and natural gas processing and other services;
the availability and costs of sufficient pipeline and transportation facilities and gathering and processing capacity;
our ability to maintain the borrowing capacity under our Fifth Amended and Restated     Senior Secured Credit Facility (as amended, the "Senior Secured Credit Facility") or access other means of obtaining capital and liquidity, especially during periods of sustained low commodity prices;
our ability to successfully identify and consummate strategic acquisitions, including the pending Acquisition (as defined below), at purchase prices that are accretive to our financial results and to successfully integrate acquired businesses, assets and properties;
our ability to generate sufficient cash to service our indebtedness, fund our capital requirements and generate future profits;
restrictions contained in our debt agreements, including our Senior Secured Credit Facility and the indentures governing our senior unsecured notes, as well as debt that could be incurred in the future;
our ability to recruit and retain the qualified personnel necessary to operate our business;
the potentially insufficient refining capacity in the United States Gulf Coast to refine all of the light sweet crude oil being produced in the United States, which could result in widening price discounts to world crude prices and potential shut-in of production due to lack of sufficient markets;
risks related to the geographic concentration of our assets;
our ability to hedge and regulations that affect our ability to hedge;

iii


changes in the regulatory environment and changes in United States or international legal, tax, political, administrative or economic conditions, including regulations that prohibit or restrict our ability to apply hydraulic fracturing to our oil and natural gas wells and to access and dispose of water used in these operations;
legislation or regulations that prohibit or restrict our ability to drill new allocation wells;
our ability to execute our strategies;
competition in the oil and natural gas industry;
drilling and operating risks, including risks related to hydraulic fracturing activities; and
our ability to comply with federal, state and local regulatory requirements.
These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those suggested by the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements should, therefore, be considered in light of various factors, including those set forth under "Part I, Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report, under "Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors" and "Part II, Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 (the "2018 Annual Report") and those set forth from time to time in our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). These documents are available through our website or through the SEC's Electronic Data Gathering and Analysis Retrieval system at http://www.sec.gov. In light of such risks and uncertainties, we caution you not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this Quarterly Report or, if earlier, as of the date they were made. We do not intend to, and disclaim any obligation to, update or revise any forward-looking statements unless required by securities law.

("Laredo"), together with its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Laredo Midstream Services, LLC ("LMS") and Garden City Minerals, LLC ("GCM"), is an independent energy company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of oil and natural gas properties, and midstream and marketing services, primarily in the Permian Basin of West Texas. LMS and GCM (together, the "Guarantors") guarantee all of Laredo's debt instruments. In these notes, the "Company" refers to Laredo, LMS and GCM collectively, unless the context indicates otherwise. All amounts, dollars and percentages presented in these unaudited consolidated financial statements and the related notes are rounded and, therefore, approximate.
b.    Basis of presentation
The unaudited consolidated financial statements were derived from the historical accounting records of the Company and reflect the historical financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods described herein. The unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). All material intercompany transactions and account balances have been eliminated in the consolidation of accounts.
The unaudited consolidated financial statements have not been audited by the Company's independent registered public accounting firm, except that the consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2018 is derived from audited consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, the unaudited consolidated financial statements reflect all necessary adjustments to present fairly the Company's financial position as of September 30, 2019, results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018.
Certain disclosures have been condensed or omitted from the unaudited consolidated financial statements. Accordingly, the unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the 2018 Annual Report.
Significant accounting policies
See Note 2 in the 2018 Annual Report for discussion of significant accounting policies and Note 3 for those related to the adoption of Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 842, Leases ("ASC 842").
Use of estimates in the preparation of interim unaudited consolidated financial statements
The preparation of the unaudited consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions about future events. These estimates and the underlying assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Although management believes these estimates are reasonable, actual results could differ.
For further information regarding the use of estimates and assumptions, see Note 2.b in the 2018 Annual Report, Note 3 pertaining to the Company's leases and Note 6.c pertaining to the Company's 2019 performance share awards and outperformance share award.
Note 2—New accounting standards
The Company considers the applicability and impact of all accounting standard updates ("ASU") issued by the FASB and has determined there are no ASUs that are not yet adopted and meaningful to disclose as of September 30, 2019.
Accounting standard adopted
On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASC 842 using the modified retrospective approach and applying the optional transition method as of the beginning of the period of adoption. Results for the period beginning after January 1, 2019 are presented under ASC 842, while prior periods are not adjusted and continue to be reported under ASC 840, Leases ("ASC 840"). The Company utilized the transition package of expedients for leases that commenced before the effective date. ASC 842 supersedes previous lease guidance in ASC 840. The core principle of the new guidance is that a lessee should recognize on the balance sheet a liability to make lease payments and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term related to its leases. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, a lessee is permitted to make an accounting policy

election, by class of underlying asset, not to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities. See Note 3 for further discussion of the ASC 842 adoption impact on the Company's unaudited consolidated financial statements.
Note 3—Leases
Impact of ASC 842 adoption
Prior to January 1, 2019, the Company accounted for leases under ASC 840 and did not record any right-of-use assets or corresponding lease liabilities. Upon the adoption of ASC 842 on January 1, 2019, the Company recognized $22.1 million in operating lease right-of-use assets and $25.3 million in operating lease liabilities on the unaudited consolidated balance sheet for operating leases with a term greater than 12 months. The difference between the two balances of $3.2 million is mainly due to free rent and lease build-out incentives that were recorded as deferred lease liabilities under ASC 840. These deferred lease liabilities are subtracted from the right-of-use asset opening balance under ASC 842. The transition did not result in a material impact to the unaudited consolidated statements of operations nor was there a related impact to the unaudited consolidated statements of stockholders' equity.
The Company utilized the modified retrospective approach in adopting the new standard and applied the optional transition method as of the beginning of the period of adoption, along with the transition package of practical expedients, and implemented certain accounting policy decisions which include: (i) short-term lease recognition exemption, (ii) establishing a balance sheet recognition capitalization threshold, (iii) not evaluating existing or expired land easements that were not previously accounted for as leases under ASC 840 and (iv) accounting for certain asset classes at a portfolio level by not separating the lease and non-lease components and accounting for the agreement as a single lease component.
The Company determines whether a contract is or contains a lease at inception of the contract, based on answers to a series of questions that address whether an identified asset exists and whether the Company has the right to obtain substantially all of the benefit of the asset and to control its use over the full term of the agreement. When available, the Company uses the rate implicit in the lease to discount lease payments to present value; however, most of the Company's leases do not provide a readily determinable implicit rate. In such cases, the Company is required to use its incremental borrowing rate ("IBR"). The Company determines its IBR using both a "credit notching" approach and a "recovery method" approach. The results of these approaches are then weighted equally and averaged in order to determine the concluded IBR. This concluded IBR is utilized to discount the lease payments based on information available at lease commencement. There are no material residual value guarantees, nor any restrictions or covenants included in the Company's lease agreements.
Mineral leases, including oil and natural gas leases granting the right to explore for those natural resources and rights to use the land in which those natural resources are contained, are not included in the scope of ASC 842.
The Company has recognized operating lease right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities on the unaudited consolidated balance sheet for leases of commercial real estate with lease terms extending into 2027 and drilling, completion, production and other equipment leases with lease terms extending through 2021. An additional drilling rig contract commenced subsequent to September 30, 2019, with a lease term extending into 2021. Accordingly, the Company will recognize an operating lease right-of-use asset and an operating lease liability on the unaudited consolidated balance sheet of $16.9 million on the drilling rig contract's commencement date. The Company has various other drilling, completion and production equipment leases on a short-term basis which are reflected in short-term lease costs.
The Company's lease costs include those that are recognized in net income (loss) during the period and capitalized as part of the cost of another asset in accordance with other GAAP.
The lease costs related to drilling, completion and production activities are reflected at the Company's net ownership, which is consistent with the principals of proportional consolidation, and lease commitments are reflected on a gross basis. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had an average working interest of 97% in Laredo-operated active productive wells in its core operating area.
Certain of the Company's leases include provisions for variable payments. These variable payments are typically determined based on a measure of throughput, actual days or another measure of usage. For our drilling rigs, the variable lease costs include the payments that depend on the performance or usage of the underlying asset, the costs to move and the costs to repair the drilling rigs. For certain of our commercial office buildings, utilities and common area, the variable lease costs are the variable maintenance charges. For our equipment leases, the variable lease costs are the amounts incurred under our contracts that are beyond the minimum rental fee, inclusive of maintenance.

The Company subleases certain office space to third parties but remains the primary obligor under the head lease. The lease terms on those subleases each contain renewal options that do not extend past the term of the head lease. The subleases do not contain residual value guarantees. Sublease income is recognized based on the contract terms and, upon the adoption of ASC 842, is included as a reduction of lease expense under the head lease.
Certain of the Company's operating lease right-of-use asset classes include options to renew on a month-to-month basis. The Company considers contract-based, asset-based, market-based, and entity-based factors to determine the term over which it is reasonably certain to extend the lease in determining its right-of-use assets and liabilities.
The Company's material leases do not include options to purchase the leased property.
The Company does not have any significant finance leases.

The Company uses the full cost method of accounting for its oil and natural gas properties. Under this method, all acquisition, exploration and development costs, including certain related employee costs incurred for the purpose of exploring for or developing oil and natural gas properties, are capitalized and depleted on a composite unit-of-production method based on proved oil, NGL and natural gas reserves. Such amounts include the cost of drilling and equipping productive wells, dry hole costs, lease acquisition costs, delay rentals and other costs related to such activities. Costs, including related employee costs, associated with production and general corporate activities are expensed in the period incurred. Sales of oil and natural gas properties, whether or not being depleted currently, are accounted for as adjustments of capitalized costs, with no gain or loss recognized, unless such adjustments would significantly alter the relationship between capitalized costs and proved reserves of oil, NGL and natural gas.
The following table presents costs incurred in the acquisition, exploration and development of oil and natural gas properties, with asset retirement obligations included in evaluated property acquisition costs and development costs, for the periods presented:

The Company excludes the costs directly associated with the acquisition and evaluation of unevaluated properties from the depletion calculation until it is determined whether or not proved reserves can be assigned to the properties. The Company capitalizes a portion of its interest costs to its unevaluated properties. Capitalized interest becomes a part of the cost of the unevaluated properties and is subject to depletion when proved reserves can be assigned to the associated properties. All items classified as unevaluated properties are assessed on a quarterly basis for possible impairment. The assessment includes consideration of the following factors, among others: intent to drill, remaining lease term, geological and geophysical evaluations, drilling results and activity, the assignment of evaluated reserves and the economic viability of development if proved reserves are assigned. During any period in which these factors indicate an impairment, the cumulative drilling costs incurred to date for such property and all or a portion of the associated leasehold costs are transferred to the full cost pool and are then subject to depletion.

The full cost ceiling is based principally on the estimated future net revenues from proved oil and natural gas properties discounted at 10%. The SEC guidelines require companies to use the unweighted arithmetic average first-day-of-the-month price for each month within the 12-month period prior to the end of the reporting period before differentials ("Benchmark Prices"). The Benchmark Prices are then adjusted for quality, transportation fees, geographical differentials, marketing bonuses or deductions and other factors affecting the price received at the delivery point ("Realized Prices"). The Realized Prices are utilized to calculate the discounted future net revenues in the full cost ceiling calculation. Significant inputs included in the calculation of discounted cash flows used in the impairment analysis include the Company's estimate of operating and development costs, anticipated production of proved reserves and other relevant data. In the event the unamortized cost of evaluated oil and natural gas properties being depleted exceeds the full cost ceiling, as defined by the SEC, the excess is charged to expense in the period such excess occurs. Once incurred, a write-down of oil and natural gas properties is not reversible.

Note 6—Stockholders' equity and Equity Incentive Plan
a.   Share repurchase program
In February 2018, the Company's board of directors authorized a $200 million share repurchase program commencing in February 2018. The repurchase program expires in February 2020. Share repurchases under the share repurchase program may be made through a variety of methods, which may include open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions and block trades. The timing and actual number of share repurchases will depend upon several factors, including market conditions, business conditions, the trading price of the Company's common stock and the nature of other investment opportunities available to the Company. During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company repurchased 11,048,742 shares of common stock at a weighted-average price of $8.78 per common share for a total of $97.1 million under this program. All shares were retired upon repurchase. There were no share repurchases under this program during the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
b.   Treasury stock
Treasury stock is recorded at cost, which includes incremental direct transaction costs, and is retired upon acquisition as a result from (i) share repurchases under the share repurchase program, (ii) stock exchanged to satisfy tax withholding that arises upon the lapse of restrictions on incentive awards at the awardee's election and (iii) stock exchanged for the cost of exercise of stock options at the awardee's election.
c.   Equity Incentive Plan
The Laredo Petroleum, Inc. Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan, as amended and restated as of May 16, 2019 (the "Equity Incentive Plan"), provides for the granting of incentive awards in the form of restricted stock awards, stock option awards, performance share awards, outperformance share awards, performance unit awards and other awards. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company's stockholders approved an amendment to the Equity Incentive Plan, among other items, to increase the maximum number of shares of the Company's common stock issuable under the Equity Incentive Plan from 24,350,000 shares to 29,850,000 shares.
The Company recognizes the fair value of stock-based compensation awards, expected to vest over the requisite service period, as a charge against earnings, net of amounts capitalized. The Company's stock-based compensation awards are accounted for as equity awards and are included in "General and administrative" on the unaudited consolidated statements of operations. The Company capitalizes a portion of stock-based compensation for employees who are directly involved in the acquisition, exploration or development of oil and natural gas properties into the full cost pool. Capitalized stock-based compensation is included in "Evaluated properties" on the unaudited consolidated balance sheets. The Company's performance unit awards, granted in 2019, were accounted for as liability awards and included in "General and administrative", net of amounts capitalized, on the unaudited consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2019, and the corresponding liabilities were included in "Other noncurrent liabilities" on the unaudited consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2019. Upon their modification during the second quarter of 2019, the performance unit awards were converted to performance share awards and the performance unit award compensation was reversed. See "Performance share awards" and "Performance unit awards" below for additional discussion of the modification.

Restricted stock awards
All service vesting restricted stock awards are treated as issued and outstanding in the unaudited consolidated financial statements. Per the award agreement terms, if employment is terminated prior to the restriction lapse date for reasons other than death or disability, the restricted stock awards are forfeited and canceled and are no longer considered issued and outstanding. If the termination of employment is by reason of death or disability, all of the holder's restricted stock will automatically vest. Restricted stock awards granted to employees vest in a variety of schedules that mainly include (i) 33%, 33% and 34% vesting per year beginning on the first anniversary of the grant date and (ii) full vesting on the first anniversary of the grant date. Stock awards granted to non-employee directors vest immediately on the grant date. See Note 17 for discussion of the Company's organizational restructuring during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and expected fourth-quarter 2019 forfeitures.

Performance share awards
Performance share awards, which the Company has determined are equity awards, are subject to a combination of market, performance and service vesting criteria. For performance share awards with market criteria or portions of awards with market criteria, which include: (i) the relative three-year total shareholder return comparing the Company's shareholder return to the shareholder return of the peer group specified in each award agreement ("RTSR Performance Percentage"), (ii) the Company's absolute three-year total shareholder return ("ATSR Appreciation") and (iii) the Company's total shareholder return ("TSR"), a Monte Carlo simulation prepared by an independent third party is utilized to determine the grant-date (or modification date) fair value, and the associated expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the three-year requisite service period of the awards. For portions of awards with performance criteria, which is the Company's three-year return on average capital employed ("ROACE Percentage"), the fair value is equal to the Company's closing stock price on the grant date (or modification date), and for each reporting period, the associated expense fluctuates and is adjusted based on an estimated payout of the number of shares of common stock to be delivered on the payment date for the three-year performance period. Any shares earned under performance share awards are expected to be issued in the first quarter following the completion of the respective requisite service periods based on the achievement of certain market and performance criteria, and the payout can range from 0% to 200%. Per the award agreement terms, if employment is terminated prior to the restriction lapse date for reasons other than death or disability, the performance share awards are forfeited and canceled. If the termination of employment is by reason of death or disability, and the market and performance criteria are satisfied, then the holder of the earned performance share awards will receive a prorated number of shares based on the number of days the participant was employed with the Company during the performance period. See Note 17 for discussion of the Company's organizational restructuring during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and expected fourth-quarter 2019 forfeitures.

The amounts potentially payable in the Company's common stock at the end of the requisite service period for the performance share awards granted on February 28, 2019 and June 3, 2019 will be determined based on three criteria: (i) RTSR Performance Percentage, (ii) ATSR Appreciation and (iii) ROACE Percentage. The RTSR Performance Percentage, ATSR Appreciation and ROACE Percentage will be used to identify the "RTSR Factor," the "ATSR Factor" and the "ROACE Factor," respectively, which are used to compute the "Performance Multiple" and ultimately to determine the number of shares to be delivered on the payment date. In computing the Performance Multiple, the RTSR Factor is given a 25% weight, the ATSR Factor a 25% weight and the ROACE Factor a 50% weight. These awards have a performance period of January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2021.
(2)
On May 16, 2019, the board of directors elected to change the form of payment from cash to common stock for the awards granted on February 28, 2019. This change in election triggered modification accounting, and the awards, formerly accounted for as liability awards, were converted to equity awards and, accordingly, new fair values were determined based on the May 16, 2019 modification date.
(3)
The performance share awards granted on May 25, 2016 had a performance period of January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2018 and, as their market criteria were not satisfied, resulted in a TSR modifier of 0% based on the Company finishing in the ninth percentile of its peer group for relative TSR. As such, the granted units lapsed and were not converted into the Company's common stock during the first quarter of 2019.
