Results include significant items of $35.7 million, or $0.21 per share, for the second-ended June 30, 2012 related to LNG terminal and pipeline development expenses primarily for the Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project currently under development and for losses due to the early extinguishment of debt incurred in both periods.

LNG exports from the Sabine Pass LNG terminal are anticipated to commence as early as 2015, with the second liquefaction train commencing operations approximately six to nine months thereafter.
