Forward looking statements
The information in this presentation includes 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. All statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. The words anticipate, assume, believe, budget, estimate, expect, forecast, initial, intend, may, plan, potential, project, should, will, would, and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements in this presentation relate to, among other things, future contracts, contract terms and margins, our business and prospects, future costs, prices, financial results, liquidity and financing, regulatory and permitting developments, future demand and supply affecting LNG and general energy markets and the closing of, and the achievement of anticipated benefits from, our natural gas property acquisition.
Our forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and analyses made by us in light of our experience and our perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments, and other factors that we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. These statements are subject to numerous known and unknown risks and uncertainties, which may cause actual results to be materially different from any future results or performance expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include those described in the Risk Factors section of Exhibit 99.1 to our Current Report on Form 8-K/A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) on March 15, 2017 and other filings with the SEC, which are incorporated by reference in this presentation. Many of the forward-looking statements in this presentation relate to events or developments anticipated to occur numerous years in the future, which increases the likelihood that actual results will differ materially from those indicated in such forward-looking statements. In addition, the acquisition, exploration and development of natural gas properties involve numerous risks and uncertainties, including the risks that we will assume unanticipated liabilities associated with the assets to be acquired and that the performance of the assets will not meet our expectations due to operational, geologic, regulatory, midstream or other issues. It is possible that the acquisition will not be completed on the terms or at the time expected, or at all.
The forward-looking statements made in or in connection with this presentation speak only as of the date hereof. Although we may from time to time voluntarily update our prior forward-looking statements, we disclaim any commitment to do so except as required by securities laws.
Non-GAAP financial measures
This presentation contains information about projected EBITDA of Tellurian. EBITDA is not a financial measure determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), should not be viewed as a substitute for any financial measure determined in accordance with GAAP and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. It would not be possible without unreasonable efforts to reconcile the projected non-GAAP information presented herein to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Similarly, projected future cash flows as set forth herein may differ from cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP.
Reserves and resources
Estimates of non-proved reserves or resources are based on more limited information, and are subject to significantly greater risk of not being produced, than proved reserves.

Plan to enter LNG Marketing business in 2017
Expect initial participation in LNG trade through short-term charter arrangements
Continue build out of risk management and operational capabilities
17 LNG Marketing
Tellurians integrated model to deliver low cost LNG globally
LNG demand is growing at 12% per annum
The U.S. is best positioned to meet these supply needs with access to abundant low-cost gas and a track record of building low-cost liquefaction
Netback LNG prices to the U.S. Gulf Coast of > $5.50/mmBtu have signaled that additional liquefaction capacity is needed
