Item 2.02  Results of Operations and Financial Condition.


On May 15, 2023, Battalion Oil Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release with respect to the Company’s first quarter 2023 financial results. The press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report. The press release contains certain measures discussed below that may be deemed “non-GAAP financial measures” as defined in Item 10 of Regulation S-K of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). In each case, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure and information reconciling the GAAP and non-GAAP measures is also included in the press release.


Exhibit 99.1 shall not be deemed to be “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, and will not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement filed under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, unless specifically identified therein as being incorporated therein by reference.


From time to time management discloses net income (loss) and earnings per share excluding selected items as well as EBITDA, LTM EBITDA, cash flow from operations, general and administrative expenses adjusted for selected items. These measures are presented based on management’s belief that these non-GAAP measures enable a user of the financial information to understand the impact of these items on reported results. Additionally, this presentation provides a beneficial comparison to similarly adjusted measurements of prior periods. These measures are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, earnings per share and cash flow from operations, as defined by GAAP. These measures may not be comparable to similarly named non-GAAP measures that other companies may use and may not be useful in comparing the performance of those companies to our performance.


Item 9.01  Financial Statements and Exhibits.
