Reports Second Quarter Results
12 Aug 16
Chinook announced second quarter financial and operating results that were in line with expectations. In light of the Company’s strategic alternatives process, we reiterate our Speculative Buy ranking and $0.50 per share target price on the stock though aim to provide a more fulsome review with potential changes to the sum of the parts components within our NAV methodology.
2Q16e Quarterly Preview
26 Jul 16
Some Recovery on Segmented Cash Flow Generation Over Q1 Though Still Down 56% Y/Y. In aggregate, the Intermediate, Mid, and Small Cap groups are expected to generate 2Q16e cash flow of $1,281 mm, $183 mm, and $53 mm, or $1.517 billion in total, that while depressed relative to the same period last year (~$2.647 billion combined), is up 17% sequentially from the prior quarter, largely on the strength of crude oil price recovery in the period. Severely weak natural gas pricing picture markedly reversed into summer, market likely to ignore financials for natural gas producers and look ahead to winter and formalization of sell-side 2018e estimates in coming months. Spot AECO natural gas prices recently crested C$2.60/mcf, and with a reasonable alignment of previously distressed NE BC Stn2 differentials, augmented by a withdrawal expected next week, view the market psyche as constructive and looking ahead, with the analogy that this market is shaping up to mirror 2012 still holding. That said, with crude oil poised to retest support levels, combined with strong stock price performance broadly observed YTD, we would characterize sentiment as slightly pessimistic in the near-term which could reduce or unwind momentum-based investment strategies that have worked thus far in 2016.
Chinook Energy Announces Further Divestitures, Consolidation to Montney Pure-Play
14 Jun 16
Chinook announced a divestiture of its non-Montney assets to Tournament Exploration for a ~70% shareholding in a recapitalized entity, the stock of which will eventually be dividended out to Chinook shareholders. Most importantly, this now isolates Chinook as a pure Montney levered growth vehicle, characterized by production of ~2,675 boe/d (19% oil & NGLs), 18.3 mmboe 2P of reserves, and 175 (122 net) sections of Montney prospective lands, coupled with the preservation of a strong balance sheet with ~$21 mm of cash and positive working capital post-deal.Directionally, we view this deal positively, though reiterate an unchanged 12-month target price of $0.50/sh.
ANNOUNCES STRATEGIC TRANSACTION TO CREATE A WELL CAPITALIZED MONTNEY FOCUSED GROWTH COMPANY
13 Jun 16
Impact: Positive. The transaction supports the broader corporate strategy of a Montney focused growth vehicle at Birley/Umbach and Gold Creek. We expect the Montney pure play entity ahead to look compelling in terms of resource leverage within an NAV-rich premise, though will not trade at a discount valuation over the next 18 months.
ANNOUNCES ASSET DISPOSITION AGREEMENT FOR CERTAIN GOLD CREEK AREA ASSETS
26 May 16
Impact: Neutral to slightly positive. We view the $7.5 mm transaction as not overly material, though a potential positive data point in terms of the current state of the broader A&D environment, which would be notionally positive given Chinooks near-term rationalization stratagem.

The Slide Rule
12 Jan 17
What is The Slide Rule? The Slide Rule has been designed to dramatically simplify the identification of the best companies in the UK small/mid-cap sector by making a quantitative assessment of the relative potential of each company. At its core, The Slide Rule aims to identify those companies that create genuine shareholder value through strong returns on capital and solid growth, but also present a value opportunity with the potential tailwind of earnings momentum. Companies are assessed within a Quality, Value, Growth and Momentum (QVGM) framework.
Opuama production restarts
21 Feb 17
Eland has confirmed the successful restart of exports from OML 40 through the new shipping alternative that it has implemented. Sales from the export terminal are expected imminently, re-establishing cash generation for Eland. Cash at YE16 was US$11.1m which has since reduced to US$5.9m, mainly reflecting initial operating expenses for the shipping alternative. While it is early days, Eland has demonstrated its ability to restart exports and production from OML 40 following the shut-down of the Forcados terminal a year ago. Production to date is averaging around 7kbd and we expect that to ramp up as Opuama operational performance improves. At US$55/bbl Brent, we estimate Eland is generating a net cash margin of around US$25/bbl. We reiterate our Buy recommendation and 95p per share Target Price.
