DIVESTS SE SASKATCHEWAN AND SW MANITOBA ASSETS FOR ~$1.075 BN
29 Sep 16
Impact: Neutral, as this announcement is aligned with comments made by Enbridge within the scope of the Spectra acquisition that ~$2 bn of non-core assets will be divested; however, the announcement came sooner than expected. The Company indicated that this sale will be accretive to the Fund Group's ACFFO on a per unit basis. We believe this implies that the interest savings from lowering corporate debt by $1,075 mm is greater than the ACFFO being generated by the asset base being sold. Our 2016e net debt forecast for Enbridge is $39,152 mm and this sale would notionally lower our forecast by 2.7% to ~$38,075 mm.
Enbridge Inc. (ENB) and Spectra Energy to Combine and Create $163 bn EV Infrastructure Company
07 Sep 16
ENB has announced the acquisition of Spectra Energy Corp (SE-N, not covered) for a transaction value of US$48 billion (C$61 billion). At closing, this will make ENB the largest energy infrastructure company in North America. We view the deal positively and would be buyers of the stock as we believe the strategic rationale for the transaction is strong, but that it will take a number of years for integration due to the size and scope of the transaction. We estimate that EBIT from Gas Pipelines and Processing as a percent of total EBIT will go from 8% in 2016e to 41% in 2018e due to the addition of Spectra. Our 2019e ACFFO of $5.76/share remains within the Company’s unchanged target of $5.50 to $6.00 per share.
AND SPECTRA ENERGY TO COMBINE AND CREATE $165 BN EV INFRASTRUCTURE COMPANY
06 Sep 16
Impact: We believe this transformational transaction creates long-term value through the significantly increased natural gas business platform. Enbridge estimates that roughly half of its EBITDA will come from natural gas related activities if the transaction closes. The Company's long-term growth outlook for ACFFO is unchanged, the dividend growth profile has been increased and extended while diversifying the operational platform. We view all of the prior traits positively. Synergies and enhancements to product offerings are expected to be realized in the medium to long-term but near-term impacts from the transaction may lead to dilution in 2017e CFPS and EPS.
ENBRIDGE INC. (ENB) AND ENBRIDGE ENERGY PARTNERS, L.P. ACQUIRE INTEREST IN BAKKEN PIPELINE SYSTEM FOR US$1.5 BN
03 Aug 16
The revised terms agreed with Maxit Capital should provide Solgold with the financial capacity to accelerate its exploration at Cascabel significantly. The ability to investigate the priority targets, some of which show a larger surface expression than the Alpala target which has received most of the exploratory work to date, enables Solgold to plan an exploration campaign which gives a more detailed view of the full scale of the Cascabel licence area. A maiden resource for the Alpala prospect will provide investors with a quantifiable benchmark against which they can assess the value of the wider licence area.
Adj EPS $0.50 (FCCe: $0.44; Street: $0.51)
02 Aug 16
Adjusted EBIT was $1.1 bn and in line with both FCC’s and the Street’s estimate of $1.1 bn. As expected, throughput volumes were negatively impacted in 2Q16 by the wildfires in northeastern Alberta, which significantly curtailed production from the oil sands; as a result, EBIT was $74 mm lower than it would have been without the outages, though, still up y/y due to new projects coming on line. Enbridge has deployed $1.8 bn of its capital program so far this year, including the Tupper gas plant acquisition ($0.5 bn) and the GTA Project ($0.9 bn), and expects to bring another $4 bn of projects into service in the next 12-months with projects that are all largely progressing on time and budget. We have assigned a 12-MTP of $55.00/share and maintain our Market Perform ranking.
REPORTS 2Q16: ADJ EPS $0.50 (FCCE: $0.44; STREET: $0.51)
29 Jul 16
Impact: Neutral. Adjusted EPS of $0.50/share was in line with street expectations of $0.50/share (FCC $0.44/share). Enbridge showed a y/y improvement of $40 mm for adjusted EBIT. Throughput volumes and EBIT were impacted in 2Q16 by the wildfires in northeastern Alberta, which curtailed production from the oil sands. The liquids mainline system is expected to return back to anticipated throughput levels in the third quarter. Despite the unexpected interruption of oil sands production, Enbridge anticipates FY2016 adjusted EBIT and ACFFO to remain within guidance of $4.4 bn - $4.8 bn and $3.80/sh-$4.50/sh, respectively.

Trading conditions difficult but acquisitions underpin growth
23 Jan 17
FY16 revenue will be £53.7m (FY15: £44.8m), in line with ZC estimate of £53.9m, showing growth of c. 20% yoy underpinned by the three acquisitions undertaken in the year. However, due to higher costs relating to the acquisitions and, to a lesser extent, gross margin pressure, PBT will be in the region of £7.0 to £7.2m equating to growth of between 5.5% and 8.0%. As a result, FY16 ZC profit forecast is reduced by 8.0% to £7.0m. The impact in FY18 and FY19 is muted by the announcement of a further acquisition leading to an increase in revenue estimates of 8.7% whilst profit estimates fall c.4.5% in each year, respectively. Despite the decrease in forecasts the PER multiple on FY17 earnings remains single digit at just 9.1x, against a distributor average of 15.8x. With commitment to the forecast dividend increase reiterated, Flowtech offers an above average yield of 4.1%
N+1 Singer - Northern lights - Shining prospects for 2017
16 Jan 17
As the birthplace of Stephenson, Armstrong and Swan, the North East of England has a proud history of industrial and technological innovation. Despite local economic challenges, the region’s industrial heritage lives on through continuing success in high end engineering and technology. The recent takeovers of private equity backed SMD (subsea robotics) and Nomad Digital (wi-fi on the railways) are testament to this. The North East has also emerged as a leader in genetics and genomics with an enviable life sciences and healthcare infrastructure. Against this backdrop, we expect the region to continue to throw up attractive IPO candidates to build on the six new listings in the past three years. We expect 2017 to be far kinder to the existing portfolio of North East plcs than 2016 (a year to forget) with recent management changes one important theme for the new year. Our top picks are Hargreaves Services, Quantum Pharma and Zytronic (all N+1 Singer Corporate clients) and we are Buyers of Northgate and Grainger.
