CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Various statements contained in or incorporated by reference into this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this "Quarterly Report") are 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 (the "Exchange Act"). 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 generally accompanied by words such as "estimate," "project," "predict," "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "potential," "could," "may," "will," "foresee," "plan," "goal," "should," "intend," "pursue," "target," "continue," "suggest" or the negative thereof or other variations thereof or other words that convey the uncertainty of future events or outcomes. 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 effects, duration, government response or other implications of the outbreak and continued spread of the coronavirus ("COVID-19"), or the threat and occurrence of other epidemic or pandemic diseases;
changes in domestic and global production, supply and demand for oil, NGL and natural gas, including the decrease in demand and oversupply of oil and natural gas as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and actions by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries members and other oil exporting nations ("OPEC+");
the volatility of oil, NGL and natural gas prices, including in our area of operation in the Permian Basin, and the extent and duration of price reductions and increased production by OPEC+;
revisions to our reserve estimates as a result of changes in commodity prices, decline curves and other uncertainties;
impacts of impairment write-downs on our financial statements;
the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting and our ability to remediate a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting;
the potential impact of suspending drilling programs and completions activities or shutting in a portion of our wells, as well as costs to later restart, and co‐development considerations such as horizontal spacing, vertical spacing and parent‐child interactions on production of oil, NGL and natural gas from our wells;
conditions of the energy industry and changes in the regulatory environment and in United States ("U.S.") or international legal, tax, political, administrative or economic conditions, including new or changes to existing laws, trade policies or regulations that restrict imports or exports from the U.S., 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 or eliminate federal income tax deductions for oil and gas exploration and development, which could be affected by the outcome of the U.S. presidential, congressional and state elections;
the ongoing instability and uncertainty in the U.S. and international energy, 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;
our ability to maintain listing on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") and to prevent the decrease in market price and liquidity of our common stock;
our ability to discover, estimate, develop and replace oil, NGL and natural gas reserves and inventory;
capital requirements for our operations and projects;
the long-term performance of wells that were completed using different technologies;
iii

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 export infrastructure in the Permian Basin and U.S. Gulf Coast and gathering and processing capacity;
our ability to continue 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 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;
the impact of repurchases, if any, of securities from time to time;
restrictions contained in our debt agreements, including our Senior Secured Credit Facility and the indentures governing our Senior Unsecured Notes (as defined below), as well as debt that could be incurred in the future;
our ability to maintain the health and safety of, as well as recruit and retain, qualified personnel necessary to operate our business;
the potential for pipeline and storage constraints in the Permian Basin and U.S. Gulf Coast and the possibility of future production curtailment in the State of Texas;
the potentially insufficient refining capacity in the U.S. Gulf Coast to refine all of the light sweet crude oil being produced in the U.S., which could result in widening price discounts to world oil 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 secure or generate sufficient electricity to produce our wells without limitations;
our ability to hedge and regulations that affect our ability to hedge;
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 those related to inclement weather impacting our ability to produce existing wells and/or drill and complete new wells over an extended period of time; 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," under "Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors" and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report and our first-quarter and second-quarter 2020 Quarterly Reports, 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, 2019 (the "2019 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 Petroleum, Inc.
Condensed notes to the consolidated financial statements
(Unaudited)
Note 1—Organization and basis of presentation
a.    Organization
Laredo Petroleum, Inc. ("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, primarily in the Permian Basin of West Texas. 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, 2019 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, 2020, results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019.
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 2019 Annual Report.
Significant accounting policies
See Note 2 in the 2019 Annual Report for discussion of significant accounting policies.
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 2019 Annual Report and Notes 8.e and 8.f pertaining to the Company's 2020 performance unit awards and phantom unit awards, respectively.
Reclassifications
Certain amounts in the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the 2020 presentation. These reclassifications had no impact on previously reported total assets, total liabilities, net income (loss), stockholders' equity or total operating, investing or financing cash flows.
Note 2—New accounting standards
The Company considers the applicability and impact of all accounting standard updates ("ASU") issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board to the Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") and has determined there are no ASUs that are not yet adopted and meaningful to disclose as of September 30, 2020.
On January 1, 2020, the Company adopted ASU 2016-13 to Topic 326, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses, that requires an allowance for expected credit losses to be recorded against newly recognized financial assets measured at an amortized cost

basis. The measurement of expected credit losses is based on relevant information about past events, including historical experience, current conditions and reasonable and supportable forecasts that affect the collectability of the reported amount. The Company has included these factors in its analysis and determined there was minimal impact to the unaudited consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020.
Note 3—Acquisitions and divestiture
a.    2020 Asset acquisitions and divestiture
On April 30, 2020, the Company closed an acquisition of 180 net acres in Howard County, Texas for a total purchase price of $0.6 million. The acquisition also provides for one or more potential contingent payments to be paid by the Company if the arithmetic average of the monthly settlement West Texas Intermediate ("WTI") NYMEX prices exceed certain thresholds for the contingency period beginning on January 1, 2021 and ending on the earlier of December 31, 2022 or the date the counterparty has received the maximum consideration of $1.2 million. The fair value of this contingent consideration was $0.2 million as of the acquisition date, which was recorded as part of the basis in the oil and natural gas properties acquired and as a contingent consideration derivative liability. See Note 10.a for the fair value of the contingent consideration as of September 30, 2020.
On February 4, 2020, the Company closed a transaction for $22.5 million acquiring 1,180 net acres and divesting 80 net acres in Howard County, Texas.
All transaction costs for the asset acquisitions were capitalized and were included in "Oil and natural gas properties" on the consolidated balance sheet.
See Note 19.b for discussion of the Company's acquisition of oil and natural gas properties subsequent to September 30, 2020.
On April 9, 2020, the Company closed a divestiture of 80 net acres and working interests in two producing wells in Glasscock County, Texas for a total sales price of $0.7 million, net of customary closing and post-closing sales price adjustments. The divestiture was recorded as an adjustment to oil and natural gas properties pursuant to the rules governing full cost accounting. Effective at closing, the operations and cash flows of these oil and natural gas properties were eliminated from the ongoing operations of the Company, and the Company has no continuing involvement in the properties. This divestiture did not represent a strategic shift and has not had a major effect on the Company's future operations or financial results.
b.    2019 Acquisitions
Asset acquisitions
On December 12, 2019, the Company closed an acquisition of 7,360 net acres and 750 net royalty acres in Howard County, Texas for $131.7 million, net of customary closing and subject to customary post-closing purchase price adjustments. The acquisition also provides for a potential contingent payment, where the Company is required to pay $20.0 million if the arithmetic average of the monthly settlement WTI NYMEX prices for each consecutive calendar month for the one-year period beginning January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 exceeds a certain threshold. The fair value of this contingent consideration was $6.2 million as of the acquisition date, which was recorded as part of the basis in the oil and natural gas properties acquired and as a contingent consideration derivative liability. See Note 10.a for the fair value of the contingent consideration as of September 30, 2020. This acquisition was primarily financed through borrowings under the Senior Secured Credit Facility. Post-closing is expected to be finalized during the fourth quarter of 2020.
On June 20, 2019, the Company acquired 640 net acres in Reagan County, Texas for $2.9 million.
All transaction costs were capitalized and were included in "Oil and natural gas properties" on the consolidated balance sheet.
Business combination
On December 6, 2019, the Company closed a bolt-on acquisition of 4,475 contiguous net acres and working interests in 49 producing wells in western Glasscock County, Texas, which included net production of 1,400 barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE") per day at the time of acquisition, for $64.6 million, net of customary closing purchase price adjustments. This acquisition was

Condensed notes to the consolidated financial statements
(Unaudited)
financed through borrowings under the Senior Secured Credit Facility. Post-closing was finalized during the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
This acquisition was accounted for as a business combination. Accordingly, the Company conducted assessments of net assets acquired and recognized amounts for identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the estimated acquisition date fair values, while transaction costs associated with the acquisition were expensed. The Company makes various assumptions in estimating the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The most significant assumptions relate to the estimated fair values of evaluated and unevaluated oil and natural gas properties. The fair values of these properties were measured using a discounted cash flow model that converts future cash flows to a single discounted amount. Significant inputs to the valuation include estimates of: (i) forecasted oil, NGL and natural gas reserve quantities; (ii) future commodity strip prices as of the closing dates adjusted for transportation and regional price differentials; (iii) forecasted ad valorem taxes, production taxes, income taxes, operating expenses and development costs; and (iv) a peer group weighted-average cost of capital rate subject to additional project-specific risk factors. To compensate for the inherent risk of estimating the value of the unevaluated properties, the discounted future net cash flows of proved undeveloped and probable reserves are reduced by additional reserve adjustment factors. These assumptions represent Level 3 inputs under the fair value hierarchy, as described in Note 10 in the 2019 Annual Report.
The following table reflects an aggregate of the final estimate of the fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in this business combination on December 6, 2019:
(in thousands) Fair values of acquisition
Fair values of net assets:
Evaluated oil and natural gas properties $ 29,921 
Unevaluated oil and natural gas properties 34,700 
Asset retirement cost 2,728 
     Total assets acquired 67,349 
Asset retirement obligations (2,728)
        Net assets acquired $ 64,621 
Fair values of consideration paid for net assets:
Cash consideration $ 64,621 
c.    Exchange of unevaluated oil and natural gas properties
From time to time, the Company exchanges undeveloped acreage with third parties. The exchanges are recorded at fair value and the difference is accounted for as an adjustment of capitalized costs with no gain or loss recognized pursuant to the rules governing full cost accounting, unless such adjustment would significantly alter the relationship between capitalized costs and proved reserves of oil, NGL and natural gas.

Total property and equipment, net $ 1,335,148  $ 2,000,221 
See Note 10.b for discussion of impairments of long-lived assets during the nine months ended September 30, 2020. See Note 6 in the 2019 Annual Report for additional discussion of the Company's property and equipment.
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 employee-related costs, incurred for the purpose of acquiring, exploring for or developing oil and natural gas properties, are capitalized and, once evaluated, depleted on a composite unit-of-production method based on estimates of proved oil, NGL and natural gas reserves. The depletion base includes estimated future development costs and dismantlement, restoration and abandonment costs, net of estimated salvage values. Capitalized costs 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 employee-related costs, associated with production and general corporate activities are expensed in the period incurred.
The Company excludes unevaluated property acquisition costs and exploration costs 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 and such costs become 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 proved 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.
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 full cost ceiling is based principally on the estimated future net revenues from proved oil, NGL and natural gas reserves, which exclude the effect of the Company's commodity derivative transactions, 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 wellhead ("Realized Prices") without giving effect to the Company's commodity derivative transactions. The Realized Prices are utilized to calculate the estimated 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 expensed in the period such excess occurs. Once incurred, a write-down of oil and natural gas properties is not reversible.

Note 7—Stockholders' equity
a.    Reverse stock split and Authorized Share Reduction
On March 17, 2020, the board of directors authorized an amendment to the Company's amended and restated certificate of incorporation ("Certificate of Incorporation") to effect, at the discretion of the board of directors (i) a reverse stock split that would reduce the number of shares of outstanding common stock in accordance with a ratio to be determined by the board of directors within a range of 1-for-5 and 1-for-20 currently outstanding and (ii) a reduction of the number of authorized shares of common stock by a corresponding proportion ("Authorized Share Reduction").
On May 14, 2020, after receiving stockholder approval of the amendment to the Company's Certificate of Incorporation to effect, at the discretion of the board of directors, the reverse stock split and the Authorized Share Reduction, the board of directors approved the implementation of the reverse stock split at a ratio of 1-for-20 currently outstanding shares of common stock, and the related corresponding Authorized Share Reduction.
On June 1, 2020, the amendment to the Company's Certificate of Incorporation became effective and effected the 1-for-20 reverse stock split of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock and the related Authorized Share Reduction from 450,000,000 to 22,500,000 authorized shares, par value $0.01 per share, with authorized shares of preferred stock remaining unchanged at 50,000,000, par value $0.01 per share, for a total of 72,500,000 shares of capital stock. See Note 8 for discussion of the Laredo Petroleum, Inc. Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan (the "Equity Incentive Plan"), that proportionately reduced the number of shares that may be granted.
b.    Treasury stock
Treasury stock is recorded at cost, which includes incremental direct transaction costs, and is retired upon acquisition as a result of (i) stock exchanged to satisfy tax withholding that arises upon the lapse of restrictions on share-settled equity-based awards at the awardee's election or (ii) stock exchanged for the cost of exercise of stock options at the awardee's election.

Note 8—Equity Incentive Plan
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, phantom unit awards and other awards. On June 1, 2020, in connection with the effectiveness of the reverse stock split and Authorized Share Reduction, the board of directors approved and adopted an amendment to the Equity Incentive Plan to proportionately adjust the limitations on awards that may be granted under the Equity Incentive Plan. Following the amendment, an aggregate of 1,492,500 shares may be issued under the Equity Incentive Plan. See Note 7.a for additional discussion of the reverse stock split and Authorized Share Reduction.
The Company recognizes the fair value of equity-based compensation awards, expected to vest over the requisite service period, as a charge against earnings, net of amounts capitalized. The Company's restricted stock awards, stock option awards, performance share awards and outperformance share award are accounted for as equity awards and the Company's performance unit awards and phantom unit awards are accounted for as liability awards. Equity-based compensation expense is included in "General and administrative" on the unaudited consolidated statements of operations. The Company capitalizes a portion of equity-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 equity-based compensation is included in "Evaluated properties" on the unaudited consolidated balance sheets.
a.    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. Restricted stock awards granted to non-employee directors vest immediately on the grant date.

b.    Stock option awards
As of September 30, 2020, the 11,362 outstanding stock option awards have a weighted-average exercise price of $257.42 per award and a weighted-average remaining contractual term of 4.25 years. The stock option awards were adjusted for the Company's 1-for-20 reverse stock split as discussed in Note 7.a. There were 5,441 cancellations and de minimis forfeitures of stock option awards during the nine months ended September 30, 2020, and there were no grants or exercises. The vested and exercisable stock option awards as of September 30, 2020 had no intrinsic value.
c.    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 portions of awards with market criteria, which include: (i) the relative three-year total shareholder return ("TSR") comparing the Company's shareholder return to the shareholder return of the peer group specified in each award agreement ("RTSR Performance Percentage") and (ii) the Company's absolute three-year total shareholder return ("ATSR Appreciation"), 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%.

(2)Per share data has been retroactively adjusted to reflect the Company's 1-for-20 reverse stock split effective June 1, 2020, as described in Note 7.a.
(3)As the (1/2) ROACE Factor is based on performance criteria, the expense fluctuates based on the estimated payout and is redetermined each reporting period and the life-to-date recognized expense for the respective awards is adjusted accordingly.
(4)The combined grant-date fair value per performance share is the combination of the fair value per performance share weighted for the market and performance criteria for the respective awards.
(5)The combined expense per performance share is the combination of the expense per performance share for market and performance criteria for the respective awards.
As of September 30, 2020, unrecognized equity-based compensation related to the performance share awards expected to vest was $3.7 million. Such cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.34 years.
d.    Outperformance share award
An outperformance share award was granted during the year ended December 31, 2019, in conjunction with the appointment of the Company's President, and is accounted for as an equity award. The award was adjusted for the Company's 1-for-20 reverse stock split as discussed in Note 7.a. If earned, the payout ranges from 0 to 50,000 shares in the Company's common stock per the vesting schedule. This award is subject to a combination of market and service vesting criteria, therefore, a Monte Carlo simulation prepared by an independent third party was utilized to determine the grant-date fair value with the associated expense recognized over the requisite service period. The payout of this award is based on the highest 50 consecutive trading day average closing stock price of the Company that occurs during the performance period that commenced on June 3, 2019 and ends on June 3, 2022 ("Final Date"). Of the earned outperformance shares, one-third of the award will vest on the Final Date, one-third will vest on the first anniversary of the Final Date and one-third will vest on the second anniversary of the Final Date, provided that the participant has been continuously employed with the Company through the applicable vesting date.
As of September 30, 2020, unrecognized equity-based compensation related to the outperformance share award expected to vest was $0.4 million. Such cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 3.75 years.

e.    Performance unit awards
Performance unit awards, which the Company has determined are liability awards since they are settled in cash, are subject to a combination of market, performance and service vesting criteria. For portions of awards with market criteria, which include: (i) the RTSR Performance Percentage (as defined above) and (ii) the ATSR Appreciation (as defined above), a Monte Carlo simulation prepared by an independent third party is utilized to determine the fair value, and is re-measured at each reporting period until settlement. For portions of awards with performance criteria, which is the ROACE Percentage (as defined above), the Company's closing stock price is utilized to determine the fair value and is re-measured on the last trading day of each reporting period until settlement and, additionally, the associated expense fluctuates based on an estimated payout for the three-year performance period. The expense related to the performance unit awards is recognized on a straight-line basis over the three-year requisite service period of the awards, and the life-to-date recognized expense is adjusted accordingly at each reporting period based on the quarterly fair value re-measurements and redetermination of the estimated payout for the performance criteria. Any units earned, are expected to be paid in cash during the first quarter following the completion of the requisite service period, based on the achievement of certain market and performance criteria, and the payout can range from 0% to 200%, but is capped at 100% if the ATSR Appreciation is zero or less. Per the award agreement terms, if employment is terminated prior to the restriction lapse date for reasons other than death or disability, the performance unit 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 unit awards will receive a prorated payment based on the number of days the participant was employed with the Company during the performance period.

(1)Units have been retroactively adjusted to reflect the Company's 1-for-20 reverse stock split effective June 1, 2020, as described in Note 7.a.
(2)The performance unit awards granted on February 28, 2019 were originally determined to be liability awards due to the board of directors election to settle the awards in cash. These awards were converted to performance share awards during the three months ended June 30, 2019. See Note 8.b in the 2019 Annual Report for additional information on the award conversion.
(3)The amounts potentially payable in cash at the end of the requisite service period for the performance unit awards granted on March 5, 2020 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 final value of each performance unit to be paid in cash on the payment date per the award agreement, subject to withholding requirements. In computing the Performance Multiple, the RTSR Factor is given a 1/3 weight, the ATSR Factor a 1/3 weight and the ROACE Factor a 1/3 weight. These awards have a performance period of January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2022.

(1)The remaining performance period matched zero-coupon risk-free interest rate was derived from the U.S. Treasury constant maturities yield curve on September 30, 2020.
(2)The Company utilized its own remaining performance period matched historical volatility in order to develop the expected volatility.
(3)As the (1/3) ROACE Factor is based on performance criteria, the expense fluctuates based on the estimated payout and is redetermined each reporting period and the life-to-date recognized expense for the award is adjusted accordingly.
(4)The combined fair value per performance unit is the combination of the fair value per performance unit weighted for the market and performance criteria for the award.
(5)The combined expense per performance unit is the combination of the expense per performance unit for market and performance criteria for the award.
As of September 30, 2020, unrecognized equity-based compensation related to the performance unit awards expected to vest was $0.9 million. Such cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 2.50 years.
f.    Phantom unit awards
Phantom unit awards, which the Company has determined are liability awards, represent the holder's right to receive the cash equivalent of one share of common stock of the Company for each phantom unit as of the applicable vesting date, subject to withholding requirements. Phantom unit awards granted to employees vest 33%, 33% and 34% per year beginning on the first anniversary of the grant date. Per the award agreement terms, if employment is terminated prior to the restriction lapse date

Note 9—Derivatives
The Company has three types of derivative instruments as of September 30, 2020: (i) commodity derivatives, (ii) debt interest rate derivative and (iii) contingent consideration derivatives. See Note 10.a for the fair value measurement on a recurring basis of derivatives and Note 2.f in the 2019 Annual Report for the Company's significant accounting policies for derivatives. The Company's derivatives were not designated as hedges for accounting purposes, and the Company does not enter into such instruments for speculative trading purposes. Accordingly, the changes in fair value are recognized in "Gain (loss) on derivatives, net" under "Non-operating income (expense)" on the unaudited consolidated statements of operations.
The following table summarizes components of the Company's gain (loss) on derivatives, net by type of derivative instrument for the periods presented:
Three months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30,
(in thousands) 2020 2019 2020 2019

Gain (loss) on derivatives, net $ (45,250) $ 96,684  $ 162,049  $ 136,713 
a.    Commodity
Due to the inherent volatility in oil, NGL and natural gas prices and differences in the prices of oil, NGL and natural gas between where the Company produces and where the Company sells such commodities, the Company engages in commodity derivative transactions, such as puts, swaps, collars and basis swaps to hedge price risk associated with a portion of the Company's anticipated sales volumes. By removing a portion of the price volatility associated with future sales volumes, the Company expects to mitigate, but not eliminate, the potential effects of variability in cash flows from operations. See Note 9 in the 2019 Annual Report for information on the transaction types and settlement indexes. Additionally, the Brent ICE to WTI NYMEX basis swaps are settled based on the differential between the basis swaps' fixed differential as compared to the differential between the arithmetic average of each day's index prices for the first nearby month on the pricing dates in each calculation period, for only days when both indices settle, with the index prices being (i) the ICE Brent Crude Oil Futures Contract except for the last day of trading for the applicable expiring Brent Crude Oil Futures Contract whereby the second nearby month of the Brent Crude Oil Futures Contract settlement price will be used and (ii) the NYMEX West Texas Intermediate Light Sweet Crude Oil Futures Contract.
In regards to the Company's basis swaps, when the settlement basis differential is below the fixed basis differential, the counterparty pays the Company an amount equal to the difference between the fixed basis differential and the settlement basis differential multiplied by the hedged contract volume. When the settlement basis differential is above the fixed basis differential, the Company pays the counterparty an amount equal to the difference between the settlement basis differential and the fixed basis differential multiplied by the hedged contract volume.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company completed hedge restructurings by (i) early terminating collars and entering into new swaps and (ii) early terminating swaps, the latter of which was completed during the three months ended September 30, 2020.

(1)    Associated with these open positions were $50.6 million of premiums, which were paid at the respective contracts' inception during the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
b.    Interest rate
Due to the inherent volatility in interest rates, the Company has entered into an interest rate derivative swap to hedge interest rate risk associated with a portion of the Company's anticipated outstanding debt under the Senior Secured Credit Facility. The Company will pay a fixed rate over the contract term for that portion. By removing a portion of the interest rate volatility associated with anticipated outstanding debt, the Company expects to mitigate, but not eliminate, the potential effects of variability in cash flows from operations.
The following table details the interest rate derivative that was entered into during the nine months ended September 30, 2020:
Notional amount

Fixed rate Contract period
LIBOR - Swap $ 100,000  0.345  % April 16, 2020 - April 18, 2022
c.    Contingent consideration
The Company's asset acquisition of oil and natural gas properties that closed on April 30, 2020 provides for potential contingent payments to be paid by the Company if the arithmetic average of the monthly settlement WTI NYMEX prices exceed certain thresholds for the contingency period beginning on January 1, 2021 and ending on the earlier of December 31, 2022 or the date the counterparty has received the maximum consideration of $1.2 million.
See Notes 3.a and 3.b for further discussion of the Company's asset acquisitions associated with potential contingent consideration payments. At each quarterly reporting period, the Company remeasures each contingent consideration with the changes in fair values recognized in earnings. See Note 10.a for the fair value of the contingent considerations as of September 30, 2020.
