STONE ENERGY CORPORATION (NYSE:SGY) Files An 8-K Results of Operations and Financial Condition
Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On March 12, 2018, we issued a press release with respect to our fourth quarter and year-end 2017 results. The press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein. The press release contains a non-GAAP financial measure we call “discretionary cash flow” (discussed below) that may be deemed a non-GAAP financial measure as defined in Item 10 of Regulation S-K under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). The most directly comparable generally accepted accounting principle (“GAAP”) financial measure and information reconciling the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measure “discretionary cash flow” is also included in the press release.

In the press release, we refer to a non-GAAP financial measure we call “discretionary cash flow.” Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure of discretionary cash flow is useful to investors because it is widely used by professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry. Management believes that discretionary cash flow is a financial indicator of our company’s ability to internally fund capital expenditures and service debt. Discretionary cash flow should not be considered an alternative to net cash provided by (used in) operating activities or net income or loss, as defined by GAAP. Discretionary cash flow equals cash flows from operating activities before changes in operating assets and liabilities.
