INVESTOR PRESENTATION June 2024

Forward Looking Statements This presentation contains “forward-looking statements” for purposes of the safe harbor provisions under the U.S. Private securities litigation reform act of 1995, as amended. These forward-looking statements are generally identified by words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “seem,” “seek,” “future,” “outlook,” “model,” “target,” “goal,” “plan,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “strive,” “would,” “will” or words of similar meaning that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical facts. These forward-looking statements may include, among other things, statements about future financial condition and results of operations, plans, objectives, strategies, beliefs, expectations and intentions with respect to, among other things, future opportunities for reservoir’s business, growth initiatives and market opportunities, competitive landscape, prospective performance, revenues, products, pricing, operating expenses, market trends, liquidity, cash flows and uses of cash and capital expenditures. Such forward-looking statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of reservoir’s management and are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive risks, uncertainties and contingencies. Actual results, performance or achievements may differ materially, and potentially adversely, from any forward-looking statements and the assumptions on which these forward-looking statements are based. There can be no assurance that the information contained in this presentation is reflective of future results, performance and/or achievements to any degree. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only, and you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements as a guarantee, assurance or prediction of future results, performance and/or achievements as these forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions, whether or not identified in this presentation, that are inherently subject to various significant risks, uncertainties, contingencies and other factors, many of which are difficult to predict and generally beyond the control of Reservoir. There may be additional risks and other factors that reservoir does not currently know or that Reservoir currently believes are immaterial that could also cause actual results, performance or achievements of Reservoir to differ from those contained in these forward-looking statements. Consequently, there can be no assurance that the actual results, performance and achievements anticipated in this presentation will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, reservoir. Additional information concerning these and other factors that may impact the business, prospects, financial condition and/or results of operations discussed in this presentation can be found in Reservoir’s periodic reports or other filings with the SEC, which are available publicly on the sec’s website at www.sec.gov. All information set forth in this presentation speaks only as of the date hereof or the date of such information, as applicable, and reservoir expressly disclaims any intention or obligation to update any forward-looking statements as a result of developments occurring after the date of this presentation. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing Reservoir’s assessments as of any date subsequent to the date of this presentation and, accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon these forward-looking statements. Financial Information; Non-GAAP Financial Measures This presentation contains unaudited financial information of reservoir. The unaudited financial information has been prepared on the same basis as Reservoir’s audited financial statements and, in the opinion of reservoir’s management, reflects all adjustments necessary for the fair presentation of the unaudited financial information. However, the unaudited financial information contained in this presentation is preliminary and may be subject to change. Accordingly, such financial information may be adjusted or may be presented differently in periodic reports or other filings filed by Reservoir with the SEC, and such differences may be material. In addition, past performance is not a guarantee or indication of future financial condition and/or results of operations and should not be relied upon for such reason. This presentation also includes certain financial information, such as EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA, that has not been prepared in accordance with united states generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Reservoir’s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate Reservoir’s operations, measure its performance and make strategic decisions. Reservoir believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors and others in understanding Reservoir’s results of operations and trends in the same manner as reservoir’s management and in evaluating Reservoir’s financial measures as compared to the financial measures of other similar companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures. However, these non-GAAP financial measures are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by reservoir’s management about which items are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures and, therefore, should not be considered as a substitute for net income, operating income or any other operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Using such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation to analyze Reservoir’s business would have material limitations because the calculations are based on the subjective determination of reservoir’s management regarding the nature and classification of events and circumstances that you may find significant. In addition, although other companies in Reservoir’s industry may report measures titled EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA or similar measures, such non-GAAP financial measures may be calculated differently from how reservoir calculates such non-GAAP financial measures, which reduces their overall usefulness as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, you should consider such non-GAAP financial measures alongside other financial performance measures and other financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. You should review Reservoir’s audited and unaudited consolidated financial statements contained in its periodic reports or other filings with the SEC. Disclaimer 2
