An email from the CEO

Oklahoman Published: January 29, 2013

Chesapeake Energy Corp. CEO Aubrey McClendon informed employees of his pending retirement in an email Tuesday:

Dear CHK'ers: By now you all should have received the press release announcing that the Board and I have mutually agreed to my resignation as CEO as of April 1, 2013. Although this is due to certain philosophical differences that exist between the Board and me, the separation will be amicable and smooth.

I have the utmost confidence in you and the company's future and I will always treasure the time we have spent together building Chesapeake into the unique and dynamic company that it is today. In many respects, our accomplishments are unique and I will always remain immensely grateful for the time I have spent with you building CHK into the industry leader that it is today.

My best wishes to you all and onward and upward from here!

Aubrey
