SECTION 2 – FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

As previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on July 9, 2013, on July 2, 2013, Gastar Exploration USA, Inc. (“Gastar USA”), a subsidiary of Gastar Exploration Ltd. (the “Company”), entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Newfield Exploration Mid-Continent Inc. (“Newfield”), dated July 2, 2013, pursuant to which (i) Newfield will acquire approximately 76,000 net acres of undeveloped oil and gas leasehold interests in Kingfisher and Canadian Counties, Oklahoma from Gastar USA, for a cash purchase price of approximately $62.0 million (the “Purchase Price”), subject to customary adjustments and (ii) Gastar USA will acquire approximately 2,260 net acres of Oklahoma undeveloped oil and gas leasehold interests from Newfield (the “Gastar Acquired Acreage”) through a downward adjustment to the Purchase Price.

The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and covenants, including provisions for indemnification, subject to the limitations described in the Purchase Agreement.

On August 6, 2013, pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, Gastar USA completed the disposition of approximately 76,000 net acres of undeveloped oil and gas leasehold interests in Kingfisher and Canadian Counties, Oklahoma for expected total net proceeds of approximately $60.1 million, subject to additional adjustment for an acquisition effective date of May 1, 2013 and net of a downward adjustment for the 1,850 net acres of Gastar Acquired Acreage.

The disposition of undeveloped oil and gas leasehold interests is accounted for as an adjustment of capitalized costs, with no gain recognized as such adjustment would not significantly alter the relationship between capitalized costs and proved reserves of oil and gas attributable to the Company’s full cost pool. Therefore, this transaction has no impact on the statement of operations.
