At SilverBow Resources we believe the solution to any problem lies in coming together as a collective force that tackles the issue at hand. We reinforce collaboration and quality work as the guiding principles that enable us to become One Team. As One Team, SilverBow is committed to building and maintaining relationships within our community. We invest time to develop strong community ties and believe in the importance of earning a community's trust before asking for its support.

As good stewards, we realize that we have a responsibility to the communities where we operate. Part of that responsibility is to provide good jobs for people living in those areas, but we have to give back to those communities in other ways as well. We do this under the banner of SilverBow Cares. In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, we set out to serve the community in two ways. First, through our SilverBow Resources Charitable Fund, we established a Disaster Relief Committee for hurricane relief support. We combined contributions from both our employees and the Company to provide financial support to the disaster recovery efforts of the United Way Relief Fund, Samaritan's Purse, Team Rubicon, Texas Diaper Bank, Texas Education Agency and families negatively impacted by the storm. Further, a group of our employees contributed their time and labor performing demolition and remediation at a home that flooded in the vicinity of our office, while another group contributed their time to efforts at the United Way Relief Fund, a partnership with the Houston Food Bank, sorting food and supplies for those impacted.

We are in the process of identifying two or three organizations in our community to partner with on a long-term basis as part of our continued SilverBow Cares initiative, including organizations that would benefit from our employees' time and resources. In addition, we have many employees that have participated in charitable endeavors as individuals such as: Komen Walk for the Cure, MS 150 Houston to Austin Bike Race that raises funds for the fight against multiple sclerosis and the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

As an independent oil and gas Company, we recognize that we have a responsibility to all of our stakeholders to integrate health, safety, and environmental management processes into all our work activities. We continually emphasize to all of our employees, as well as all our contractors, that we must meet our operational and financial objectives without endangering the environment or the health and safety of those around us. In order to meet this goal effectively, we emphasize prevention rather than merely responding to problems after they occur, and we seek to continuously improve our processes so that health, safety, and the environment remain among our highest priorities.

As stewards, we are also responsible for the cultural values handed down to us from others. Our Company's culture is built around seven core values of stewardship, improvement, performance, passion, integrity, trust, and teamwork. We actively seek to live out those seven values in our day-to-day relationships with one another, and we try to serve as role models for those values in our relationships with our vendors, contractors, and the broader community.

Finally, in our role as good stewards, we believe we have a responsibility to team with our employees to help them realize their individual goals just as they help us to achieve our corporate objectives.

We try to provide challenging and rewarding opportunities for our employees, and we want to support them in lifelong learning. As a result, we continue to invest in employee education and training. Each year we align our training programs with the technical and business skills that enable our employees to become more productive and competitive within the ever-changing oil and gas industry. Through the years, we have supported our employees in obtaining undergraduate and graduate degrees, including certifications in technical, administrative, business and financial disciplines.

By using the SBOWay as our compass in our decision-making process, we continue to take measured steps to fulfill the Company's vision. Our focus on a strong corporate culture helps our employees reach their full potential and allows us to stand out amongst our Eagle Ford peers.
