REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC
ACCOUNTING FIRM


To the Participants and the Plan Administrator of
Pioneer Natural Resources USA, Inc. 401(k) and Matching Plan:


We have audited the accompanying statements of net assets available for benefits of Pioneer Natural Resources USA, Inc. 401(k) and Matching Plan as of December 31, 2021 and 2009, and the related statement of changes in net assets available for benefits for the year ended December 31, 2010.  These financial statements are the responsibility of the Plan's management.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States).  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.  We were not engaged to perform an audit of the Plan's internal control over financial reporting.  Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Plan's internal control over financial reporting.  Accordingly, we express no such opinion.  An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation.  We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the net assets available for benefits of the Plan at December 31, 2021 and 2009, and the changes in its net assets available for benefits for the year ended December 31, 2010, in conformity with U. S. generally accepted accounting principles.

Our audits were performed for the purpose of forming an opinion on the financial statements taken as a whole.  The accompanying supplemental schedule of assets (held at end of year) as of December 31, 2010, is presented for purposes of additional analysis and is not a required part of the financial statements but is supplementary information required by the Department of Labor's Rules and Regulations for Reporting and Disclosure under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974.  This supplemental schedule is the responsibility of the Plan's management.  The supplemental schedule has been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in our audits of the financial statements and, in our opinion, is fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the financial statements taken as a whole.

PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES USA, INC. 401(k) AND MATCHING PLAN

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2021 and 2009



Note 1.                 Description of Plan
 
The following description of the Pioneer Natural Resources USA, Inc. 401(k) and Matching Plan (the "Plan") provides only general information.  Participants and beneficiaries should refer to the Plan's website (www.vanguard.com) for a complete description of the Plan, which access is only available to each participant and beneficiary.  The Plan is subject to the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended ("ERISA").

General
 
The Plan is a defined contribution plan established on January 1, 2022 under Section 401 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code").  The Plan was established for the benefit of the employees of Pioneer Natural Resources USA, Inc. (the "Employer"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pioneer Natural Resources Company (the "Company").  All regular full-time and part-time employees of the Employer are eligible to participate in the Plan on the first payroll date following their date of hire.  Temporary employees are eligible to participate in the Plan upon completion of one year of service.  The Plan's assets are held in a trust and certain administrative functions are performed by Vanguard Fiduciary Trust Company, the trustee of the Plan (the "Trustee").

Contributions
 
Participants may elect to contribute to the Plan an amount up to 80 percent of their pre-tax basic compensation per pay period or the applicable legal limit.  Additionally, participants may elect to make after-tax contributions to the Plan.  Participants may also make Roth contributions to the Plan, which allow a participant to pay federal income taxes on a portion of their contributions to the Plan and take related distributions from the Plan free of federal income tax.  A participant's combined pre-tax, Roth contributions and after-tax contributions to the Plan cannot exceed 80 percent of the participant's basic compensation per pay period or the applicable legal limit.  Certain participants may make catch-up contributions to the Plan in accordance with Section 414(v) of the Code.  Pre-tax, Roth, after-tax and catch-up contributions are hereinafter referred to as "Participant Contributions."  Matching contributions are made in cash by the Employer on behalf of a participant in an amount equal to 200 percent of the pre-tax contributions made by the participant that do not exceed five percent of the participant's annual basic compensation (as defined in the Plan) (the "Matching Contributions").

Participant Accounts and Investment Options
 
Participants' accounts are credited with their Participant Contributions and Matching Contributions.  In accordance with Section 404(c) of ERISA and the Plan's Investment Policy Statement, participants exercise individual control over their accounts and are provided a broad range of investment funds in which they may choose to invest their Participant and Matching Contributions.  Earnings and losses attributable to the participants' chosen investments are allocated to the participants' accounts, along with any investment fees charged by the funds.  During the Plan year ended December 31, 2010, participants were permitted to allocate their contributions among the following registered investment company funds, common/collective trusts and Pioneer Natural Resources Stock Fund:

PIONEER NATURAL RESOURCES USA, INC. 401(k) AND MATCHING PLAN

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2021 and 2009



Vesting
 
Participants are immediately vested in their Participant Contributions and any earnings thereon.  Participants vest in twenty-five percent of their Matching Contributions and earnings thereon for each full year of completed service over a four-year period that begins with the participant's date of hire. Participants' account balances that were merged into the Plan from predecessor plans are fully vested.

Payments of Benefits
 
Vested balances > $5,000.  If the total value of the vested portion of a participant's accounts (other than rollover amounts) exceeds $5,000, payments will begin the later of age 70-1/2 or retirement, unless the participant terminates, retires or becomes disabled prior to age 70-1/2 and consents to an earlier distribution date by making a request to the Pioneer Natural Resources USA, Inc. 401(k) and Matching Plan Committee (the "Plan Administrator"). Distributions of the vested portion of the account of a terminated, retired or disabled participant can be in the form of a single distribution or monthly, quarterly or annual installment distributions over a period of two or more years.  Upon the termination of employment, retirement or disability of a participant, such participant's vested account balances attributable to predecessor plans shall be distributed in the form of a joint and survivor annuity unless the participant directs the Plan Administrator to distribute the benefits in the form of a single distribution or installment distributions.
 
Vested balances < $5,000. If the total value of the vested portion of the participant's accounts is $5,000 or less but more than $1,000 (not including amounts in the participant's rollover account, if any); the participant separates from service for any reason other than the participant's retirement, permanent disability, death or transfer to an affiliate of the Employer; and the distribution is an eligible rollover distribution, the Plan will automatically pay the distribution in a direct rollover to an individual retirement account designated by the Plan Administrator unless the participant elects to have it paid directly to the participant in a single distribution or rolled over to another eligible retirement plan.  If the total value of the vested portion of the participant's accounts is $5,000 or less but more than $1,000 (not including amounts in the participant's rollover account, if any) and the participant separates from service as a result of the participant's death, retirement or permanent disability, the vested portion will be distributed to the participant in a single distribution (in the case of death, to the participant's beneficiary or beneficiaries).  If the total value of the vested portion of the participant's accounts is $1,000 or less, payment will be made in a single distribution as soon as administratively possible.
 
In either case, vested amounts that are invested in the Pioneer Natural Resources Stock Fund may, at the election of the participant, be distributed in the form of the Company's common stock with cash distributed in lieu of fractional shares of stock.

Under the Plan, a participant's beneficiary will receive the participant's account balances in the event of the participant's death.

In-Service Withdrawals

A current employee of the Employer may withdraw (i) all or a portion of the participant's account balances derived from after-tax Participant Contributions or rollover contributions; (ii) pre-tax Participant Contributions (excluding earnings and qualified nonelective contributions allocated to the participant's pre-tax Participant Contributions accounts) under certain hardship conditions specified in the Plan document; or (iii), if the participant has attained the age of 59-1/2, all or a portion of the participant's account balances (excluding certain accounts containing Employer contributions).

Notes Receivable from Participants
 
Participants may borrow from their accounts a maximum of the lesser of (i) $50,000 (reduced by the excess, if any, of the highest total outstanding balance of all other Plan loans to the participant during the one-year period ending on the day before the date a new loan is made, over the outstanding balance of those other loans on the date the new loan is made) or (ii) 50 percent of their accounts' vested balances.  The loans are secured by the balance in the participants' accounts.  Participants' loans bear interest at an annual rate equal to the prime borrowing rate at the inception of the loan plus one percent.  Loan principal and interest are paid ratably through payroll deductions over a period not to exceed five years unless the loan is for the purpose of acquiring the principal residence of the participant.  A participant may not have more than two participant notes receivable outstanding at any time, one of which may be a principal residence loan. Loans to participants are valued at their unpaid principal balance plus any accrued but unpaid interest.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2021 and 2009
 
Forfeitures
 
Upon termination of employment, the unvested portion of a participant's account is forfeited to the Plan. Forfeitures are used to restore previously forfeited amounts to participants upon rehire as required by the Plan, pay for administrative expenses incurred by the Plan, or reduce subsequent Matching Contributions made to the Plan by the Employer.

Plan Termination
 
Although it has not expressed any intent to do so, the Employer has the right under the Plan, subject to the provisions of ERISA, to discontinue its contributions at any time or to terminate the Plan.  In the event of the Plan's termination or the complete discontinuance of any contributions to the Plan, participants will immediately become fully vested in their accounts.

Note 2.                 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared under the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").

Distributions of Benefits

Distributions of benefits to participants are recorded when paid.

Investment Valuation
 
The Plan's investments are stated at fair value in the accompanying Statements of Net Assets Available for Benefits as of December 31, 2021 and 2009, as reported by the Trustee.  Investment fair values are determined as follows:

 
1.
Investments in registered investment company funds are valued using published market prices which represent the net asset value of shares or units held by the Plan as of December 31.
 
2.
Investments in the common/collective trusts are valued at net asset value based upon the fair values of the underlying net assets of the trusts, as determined by the issuer.  The fair value of the VRSTV includes traditional contracts, wrapper contracts re-bid to determine the replacement cost, and underlying bond instruments valued by the Trustee.
 
3.
Investments in the Company's common stock are valued at the last reported sales price on December 31 on the exchange on which it is traded.

Investment contracts held by a defined contribution plan are required to be reported at fair value.  However, contract value is the relevant measurement attribute for that portion of the net assets available for benefits of a defined contribution plan attributable to fully benefit-responsive investment contracts because contract value is the amount participants would receive if they were to initiate permitted transactions under the terms of the Plan.  The Plan invests a portion of its net assets in investment contracts through the VRSTV common/collective trust.  As required by GAAP, the statements of net assets available for benefits present the fair value of VRSTV, adjusted from fair value to contract value.  The fair value of the Plan's interest in VRSTV is based on information reported by the issuer of the common/collective trust at year-end.  The contract value of VRSTV represents contributions plus earnings, less participant withdrawals and administrative expenses.

Security Transactions and Investment Income

Security transactions are accounted for on a trade-date basis.  Expenses incurred with transactions, if any, are added to the purchase price or deducted from the selling price at the time of the transactions.  Dividend income is recorded on the ex-dividend date.  Interest income is recorded as earned on an accrual basis.

Notes Receivable from participants
 
Notes receivable from participants represent participant loans that are recorded at their unpaid principal balance plus any accrued but unpaid interest.  Interest income on notes receivable from participants is recorded when it is earned.  Related fees are recorded as administrative expenses and are expensed when they are incurred.  No allowance for credit losses has been recorded as of December 31, 2021 or 2009.  If a

participant ceases to make loan repayments and the Plan Administrator deems the participant loan to be a distribution, the participant loan balance is reduced and a benefit payment is recorded.

Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of the accompanying financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the Plan's management to make estimates that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements, accompanying notes and supplemental schedule.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

New Accounting Pronouncement

In September 2010, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2010-25, "Reporting Loans to Participants by Defined Contribution Pension Plans."  Prior to ASU 2010-25, loans to participants were reported as investments at fair value. ASU 2010-25 requires that loans to participants be reported as notes receivable from participants at the unpaid principal balance plus any accrued but unpaid interest.  ASU 2010-25 is effective for periods ending after December 15, 2010.  The Plan adopted ASU 2010-25 in the 2010 financial statements, applied retrospectively for all periods presented.  The adoption of ASU 2010-25 was not significant as the unpaid principal balance plus accrued interest of loans to participants approximated fair value.  Participant loans have been reclassified to notes receivable from participants as of December 31, 2009.

During January 2010, the FASB issued ASU No. 2010-06, "Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (Topic 820)".  ASU No. 2010-06 amended Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 820 to (i) require separate disclosure of significant transfers in and out of Level 1 and Level 2 fair value measurements and the reasons for the transfers, (ii) require separate disclosure of purchases, sales, issuances and settlements in the reconciliation for fair value measurements using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3), (iii) clarify the level of disaggregation for fair value measurements of assets and liabilities and (iv) clarify disclosures about inputs and valuation techniques used to measure fair values for both recurring and nonrecurring fair value measurements.  ASU No. 2010-06 became effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2009, except for the disclosures about purchases, sales, issuances and settlements in the rollforward of activity in Level 3 fair value measurements.  Those disclosures became effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021 and for interim periods within those fiscal years.  The Plan adopted the provisions of ASU No. 2010-06 on January 1, 2010.  The adoption did not have a material effect on the Plan’s assets available for benefits or its changes in net assets available for benefits.

In May 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-04, "Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurements and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRS." ASU 2011-04 amended ASC 820 to converge the fair value measurement guidance in GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards.  Certain of the amendments clarify the application of existing fair value measurement requirements, while other amendments change a particular principle in ASC 820.  In addition, ASU 2011-04 requires additional fair value disclosures.  The amendments are to be applied prospectively and are effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011.  Plan management is currently evaluating the effect that the provisions of ASU 2011-04 will have on the Plan's financial statements.

Note 3.                 Investments

The Trustee holds the Plan's investments and executes all investment transactions.

The fair values of individual investments that represent five percent or more of the Plan's net assets available for benefits at December 31, 2021 and 2009 are as follows:

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2021 and 2009

 During the year ended December 31, 2010, the fair value of the Plan's investments (including investments purchased, sold and held) appreciated as follows:

Mutual funds
$
 16,260,555 
 
Pioneer Natural Resources Stock Fund
 
 12,782,972 
 
Common/collective trusts
 
 1,552,973 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Net appreciation in fair value of investments
$
 30,596,500 
 
 
The investment funds in which participants are allowed to invest their accounts under the Plan are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties.  These risks and uncertainties include, among other things, interest rate risk, credit risk, political risk, general business risks and overall market volatility risk.  The investment funds have individual risk profiles that cause them to respond differently to changes in the risks and uncertainties described above.  Due to the level of risk associated with the investment funds, it is reasonably possible that changes in the fair values of the investment funds may have occurred since December 31, or may occur during the near term, and that such changes could cause participants' account balances, and thus the benefits to which participants are entitled under the Plan, to differ materially from those reported as of December 31, 2021 and 2009.

Note 4.                 Disclosures About Fair Value Measurements

In accordance with GAAP, fair value measurements are based upon inputs that market participants use in pricing an asset or liability, which are classified into two categories: observable inputs and unobservable inputs. Observable inputs represent market data obtained from independent sources; whereas, unobservable inputs reflect a reporting entity's own market assumptions, which are used if observable inputs are not reasonably available without undue cost and effort. These two types of inputs are further prioritized into the following fair value input hierarchy:

 
·
Level 1 - quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.
 
·
Level 2 - quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (e.g. interest rates); and inputs derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.
 
·
Level 3 - unobservable inputs for the asset or liability.

The fair value input hierarchy level to which an asset or liability measurement in its entirety falls is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the measurement in its entirety.

(a)
The Plan may redeem the value of any or all units by submitting a written request on any business day. Once the written request is approved, the Plan will receive the proceeds within four business days.
(b)
The Plan may redeem the value of any or all units by submitting a written request on any business day if the withdrawal is solely for the purposes of funding an authorized distribution, withdrawal or loan payment to an employee or beneficiary. In order for the Plan to redeem all of its units from the Trust, the Plan must submit a written request twelve months prior to the desired withdrawal date. Between thirty days and twelve months prior to the desired withdrawal date, the Plan may submit a written request to withdraw all units from the Trust. The value of the units the Plan receives may be decreased by the amount of loss the Trust might incur due to cancellation of any investment contract or fixed principal investment owned by the Trust.

Note 5.                 Administrative Expenses
 
The Employer may pay certain expenses incurred in the administration of the Plan, including expenses and fees of the Trustee, but is not obligated to do so.  Any Plan expenses not paid by the Employer are paid from the Plan's forfeiture account or from Plan assets.  Administrative expenses incurred by the Plan were $163,911 for activity related to the year ended December 31, 2010, of which $151,691was paid from the Plan's forfeiture account and $12,220, representing participant loan transaction fees, was paid from Plan assets of the borrower. Plan administrative expenses paid by the Employer were $9,331 for activity related to the year ended December 31, 2010.
 
Plan assets in the Plan's forfeiture account qualifying to be used to defray Plan administrative expenses or to reduce the amount of Matching Contributions totaled $10,588 and $386,200 as of December 31, 2021 and 2009, respectively.

Note 6.                 Tax Status of the Plan
 
The Plan received a determination letter from the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") dated February 24, 2010, stating that the Plan is qualified under Section 401(a) of the Code and, therefore, the related trust is exempt from taxation.  Once qualified, the Plan is required to operate in conformity with the Code to maintain its qualified status. The Plan sponsor believes the Plan is being operated in compliance with the applicable requirements of the Code and therefore believes the Plan is qualified and the related trust is tax-exempt.
 
GAAP requires plan management to evaluate uncertain tax positions taken by the Plan.  The financial statement effects of a tax position are recognized when the position is more likely than not, based on the technical merits, to be sustained upon examination by the IRS.  The Plan Administrator has analyzed the tax positions taken by the Plan, and has concluded that as of December 31, 2010, there are no uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken.  The Plan has recognized no interest or penalties related to uncertain tax positions.  The Plan is subject to audits by taxing jurisdictions; however, there are currently no audits for any tax periods in progress.  The Plan Administrator believes it is no longer subject to income tax examinations for years prior to 2007.

Note 7.                 Related Party Transactions
 
Plan investments are in shares or units of registered investment company funds, common stock of the Company and common/collective trusts that are managed by the Trustee or for which the Trustee provides services.  Transactions in these funds and the Pioneer Natural Resources Stock Fund qualify as party-in-interest transactions.  These transactions are exempt from the prohibited transaction rules.

Note 8.                 Reconciliation to Form 5500

The following is a reconciliation of net assets available for benefits per the accompanying financial statements to Form 5500:

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2021 and 2009



            The following is a reconciliation of net increase in net assets available for benefits per the accompanying financial statements to Form 5500:

 
 
 
 
Net increase in net assets available for benefits per the accompanying financial statements
 
$
 50,761,307

 249,884 
 
 
 
 
 
Net increase per Form 5500
 
$
 51,011,191 

The accompanying financial statements present fully benefit-responsive contracts at contract value.  Form 5500 requires fully benefit-responsive investment contracts to be reported at fair value. Therefore, the adjustment from fair value to contract value for fully benefit-responsive investment contracts represents a reconciling item.
