TPG-Axon, owner of 6.7% of the outstanding shares of SandRidge Energy, Inc.

After TPG-Axon's consent solicitation is mailed to SandRidge shareholders in early January, SandRidge shareholders of record as of December 13, 2012 will have up to 60 days to submit their written consent for TPG-Axon's proposals.
