Till the date of Q2 2014 results announcement in 2014, Magnum Hunter Resources Corp. has divested several non-core assets, which resulted in net proceeds worth in excess of $100 million, before customary purchase price adjustments. The company has also decided to monetize its Divide County, North Dakota operated and non-operated properties and reallocate the financial resources to its core operations in the Appalachian Basin. During the quarter, the company acquired 15,228 net leasehold acres within the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays and 1,700 net mineral acres located in Monroe County, Ohio and Wetzel County, West Virginia. In the second quarter 2014, the company commenced or participated in the drilling of a total of 18 gross wells, of which 5 were operated by the Company. The company also recorded a success rate of 100% on the 10 wells in which it had a working interest that were completed during the reported period.
Mr. Gary C. Evans, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer at Magnum Hunter Resources Corp., said that the company's Q2 2014 financial numbers are symbolic to the changes in the business model with greater emphasis on Appalachian assets. Mr. Evans asserted that the company will continue this redirection and concentrate on the substantial leasehold position in the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays. He notified that though the company's production growth in 2014 is significantly back end loaded due to pad drilling, Magnum Hunter Resources Corp expects to meet its 2014 exit rate target of 32,500 Boe/d.
The Houston, Texas based-independent oil exploration and production company outperformed market expectations by reporting better than expected revenues for the second quarter 2014. During the quarter, total revenue surged to $132.52 million from $67.91 million in Q2 2013, thereby, outperforming the Bloomberg consensus estimate of $115.09 million.

In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
