The Company and its lenders under the senior secured revolving credit facility have completed the regularly scheduled fall borrowing base redetermination, and the Company has entered into an agreement with a third party to partly fund South Texas well completions.

The borrowing base and lender commitments under the Company's senior secured revolving credit facility were reaffirmed at $1.1 billion, which provided liquidity of approximately $880 million as of September 30, 2020. In addition, the Company's second-lien debt capacity of approximately $380 million was extended until the spring 2021 borrowing base redetermination.

As a result, fourth quarter capital expenditure guidance is reduced by approximately $15 million. The well completion program associated with the agreement includes co-development of three lower Eagle Ford and three Austin Chalk wells currently in the Company's DUC inventory. The Company will operate the wells and retain a 50% working interest.

As previously announced, an updated investor presentation will be posted to the Company's website before market open on November 18, 2020.
