COMSTOCK RESOURCES, INC. ANNOUNCES
FRISCO, TEXAS, February 13, 2015 - Comstock Resources, Inc. ("Comstock" or the "Company") (NYSE: CRK) today announced that its Board of Directors has determined that its quarterly dividend will be temporarily suspended.

The Board will consider reinstating dividends in subsequent quarters based on general economic conditions, the Company's financial position, capital requirements and other factors."
