Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure

On June 16, 2017 the jury returned a verdict in favor of Southwestern Energy Company (the “Company”) and certain of its subsidiaries in the federal class action lawsuit regarding royalty deductions in Arkansas, which most recently was described in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 and the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on June 6, 2017. The verdict remains subject to post-trial motions before judgment is entered.

The plaintiff class in this lawsuit comprises a substantial majority of similarly situated lessors of lands in Arkansas, most of whom are named plaintiffs or members of classes in other lawsuits described in the Company’s Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. The Company currently does not anticipate that those other cases are likely to have a material adverse effect on the results of operations, financial position or cash flows of the Company and its subsidiaries taken as a whole.
