Safe Harbor Statement

Information provided in the exhibit hereto contains statements that are “forward-looking” statements, usually containing the words “will,” “anticipates,” “believe,” “estimate,” “project,” “expect,” “target,” “goal,” or similar expressions.  Forward looking statements in the exhibit may relate to, among other things, U.S. Energy’s capital expenditures and projects, its drilling and fracing of wells with industry partners, its ownership interests in those wells and their expected costs, the oil and natural gas targets or goals for the wells, future capital expenditures and projects, and future expenses, production and reserves.  These statements are made pursuant to the safe harbor provision of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  Forward-looking statements inherently involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements.  Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, future trends in commodity and/or mineral prices, the availability of capital, competitive factors, and other risks described in the Company’s filings with the SEC (including, without limitation, the Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, and the Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2012).
The forward-looking statements referenced above are made only as of the date of the exhibit.  We undertake no obligation to update or revise the forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
