Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared by Gulfport Energy Corporation (the “Company” or “Gulfport”) pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), and reflect all adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods reported in all material respects, on a basis consistent with the annual audited consolidated financial statements. All such adjustments are of a normal, recurring nature. Certain information, accounting policies, and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") have been omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading.The consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the summary of significant accounting policies and notes included in the Company’s most recent annual report on Form 10-K. Results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for the full year.
|Impact on Previously Reported Results||Impact on Previously Reported ResultsDuring the third quarter of 2020, the Company identified that certain firm transportation costs incurred in prior periods were misclassified as deducts to "natural gas sales" while they should have been included in "transportation, gathering, processing and compression" on its consolidated statements of operations. The Company assessed the materiality of this presentation on prior periods’ consolidated financial statements in accordance with the SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 99, “Materiality”, codified in ASC Topic 250, “Accounting Changes and Error Corrections”. Based on this assessment, the Company concluded that the correction is not material to any previously issued financial statements. The correction had no impact on its consolidated balance sheets, consolidated statements of comprehensive income, consolidated statements of stockholders' equity or consolidated statements of cash flows. Additionally, the error had no impact on net loss or net loss per share. The Company will conform presentation of previously reported consolidated statements of operations in future filings.|
