Statements in this news release that are not historical facts, including but not limited to those related to increases in production and new production, expected reporting of production and drilling activity of the Carrizo/Avista JV, are forward-looking statements that are based on current expectations. Although Carrizo believes that its expectations are based on reasonable assumptions, it can give no assurance that these expectations will prove correct. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include review of quarterly results, market and other conditions, capital needs and uses, commodity price changes, effects of the global financial crisis on exploration activity, results of and dependence on exploratory drilling activities, operating risks, land issues, weather, and other risks described in Carrizo's Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2008 and its other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
