Form 8-K for COBALT INTERNATIONAL ENERGY, INC.

Results of Operations and Financial Condition


Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial
Condition.

On February 10, 2014, in connection with the previously announced participation of Cobalt International Energy, Inc. (the "Company") in the 2014 Credit Suisse 19th Annual Energy Summit in Vail, Colorado, the Company announced that as of December 31, 2013, its estimated net proved undeveloped reserves totaled 7.9 million barrels of oil and 3.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas. The year ended December 31, 2013 was the first year the Company established proved reserves and all of such proved reserves are attributable to the Company's interest in the Heidelberg field in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

These proved reserve estimates were prepared by the Company's independent reservoir engineering firm, Netherland, Sewell & Associates, Inc. and conform to the definition as set forth in the SEC Regulation S-X Part 210.4-10 (a) as clarified by subsequent SEC Staff Accounting bulletins. The proved reserves estimates are also in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Codification Topic 932, Extractive Activities - Oil and Gas.

Proved reserves are estimated quantities of hydrocarbons that geological and engineering data demonstrate with reasonable certainty to be recoverable in the future from known reservoirs under the assumed economic conditions. You are urged to closely consider the disclosures and risk factors in the Company's other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including the inherent uncertainties in estimating quantities of proved reserves.

In addition, on February 10, 2014 and also in connection with the Company's participation in the 2014 Credit Suisse 19th Annual Energy Summit in Vail, Colorado, the Company announced that it estimates its restricted and unrestricted cash balance as of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 to be approximately $1.6 billion to $1.7 billion. Such unrestricted cash includes cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and long-term investments. Restricted cash includes cash collateralized letters of credit relating to the Company's operations offshore Angola. This restricted and unrestricted cash balance estimate remains unchanged from the estimate provided in connection with the Company's participation in the 2014 Goldman Sachs Global Energy Conference in Miami, Florida on January 8, 2014.

The Company's estimate of its restricted and unrestricted cash balance as of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 is an estimate prepared by management in good faith based upon internal reporting and expectations as of and for the three months ended December 31, 2013. This estimate is preliminary, unaudited, and may be revised as a result of management's further review of the Company's results. The Company and its auditors have not completed the normal quarterly review procedures as of and for the three months ended December 31, 2013, and there can be no assurance that the Company's final results for this quarterly period will not differ from this estimate. Any such changes could be material. In addition, during the course of the preparation of the Company's audited consolidated financial statements and related notes as of and for the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company may identify items that would require it to make material adjustments to this estimated financial information.

The information contained herein is being furnished, not filed, pursuant to Item
2.02. Accordingly, this information will not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement filed by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, unless specifically identified therein as being incorporated therein by reference.
