Item 8.01 Other Events.
On March 19, 2009, St. Mary Land & Exploration Company (“St. Mary” or the “Company”) announced that the Company's Chief Executive Officer and President, Tony Best, will present at the Howard Weil 37th Annual Energy Conference at 4:20 pm central time on Monday, March, 23, 2009, at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel, located at 500 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA. A copy of this press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.
This report contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The words “anticipate,” “assume,” “believe,” “budget,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “intend,” “plan,” “project,” “will,” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements involve known and unknown risks, which may cause St. Mary’s actual results to differ materially from results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. These risks include such factors as the volatility of oil and natural gas prices, the uncertain nature of the expected benefits from the acquisition of oil and gas properties, and the ability to successfully integrate acquisitions, the imprecise nature of oil and gas reserve estimates, and other such matters discussed in the “Risk Factors” section of St. Mary’s 2008 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC. Although St. Mary may from time to time voluntarily update its prior forward-looking statements, it disclaims any commitment to do so except as required by securities laws.
