Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure

Callon Petroleum Company (the "Company") is furnishing the investor presentation slides attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report, which the Company may use from time to time in conversations with investors and analysts. The presentation will also be posted on the investor relations portion of the Company's website.

The information furnished on this Form 8-K, including the investor presentation slides attached as Exhibit 99.1 and the press release attached as Exhibit 99.2, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section or Sections 11 and 12(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any other filing under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act, whether made before or after the date of this report and irrespective of any general incorporation language in such filing, unless the Company expressly states in such filing that such information is to be considered “filed” or incorporated by reference therein.

Item 8.01. Other Events
The information included in the Investor Presentation, Exhibit 99.1, includes financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The Company’s management uses these non-GAAP measures in its analysis of the Company’s performance. The Company believes that the presentation of certain non-GAAP measures provides useful supplemental information that is essential to a proper understanding of the operating results of the Company’s core businesses. These non-GAAP disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies.
Some of the matters discussed in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, constitute 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. These projections and statements reflect the Company’s current views with respect to future events and financial performance as of this date. No assurances can be given, however, that these events will occur or that these projections will be achieved and actual results could differ materially from those projected as a result of certain factors. Factors that could cause such differences include, but are not limited to, the risk factors set forth in the Company’s filings with the SEC.

Important Additional Information

Callon, its directors and certain of its executive officers may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from Callon stockholders in connection with the matters to be considered at Callon’s 2014 Annual Meeting. Callon intends to file a proxy statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in connection with any such solicitation of proxies from Callon stockholders. CALLON STOCKHOLDERS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO READ ANY SUCH PROXY STATEMENT AND ACCOMPANYING PROXY CARD WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE AS THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION. Information regarding the ownership of Callon’s directors and executive officers in Callon stock, restricted stock and options is included in their SEC filings on Forms 3, 4 and 5, which can be found at the Company’s website (ww.callon.com) in the section “Investors.” More detailed information regarding the identity of potential participants, and their direct or indirect interests, by security holdings or otherwise, will be set forth in the proxy statement and other materials to be filed with the SEC in connection with Callon’s 2014 Annual Meeting. Information can also be found in Callon’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, filed with the SEC on March 14, 2013. Stockholders will be able to obtain any proxy statement, any amendments or supplements to the proxy statement and other documents filed by Callon with the SEC for no charge at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Copies will also be available at no charge at Callon’s website at www.callon.com or by writing to Callon at 200 North Canal Street, Natchez, Mississippi 39120.
