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.
Strong trading leads to upgrades
22 Mar 17
On the back of today’s positive trading update and slightly upgraded profit forecasts for FY2017, FY2018 and FY2019 we have reviewed our DCF analysis. This has led to an increased DCF valuation per share of 1500p (from 1200p) which we have made our new target price (from 1200p). Both TFP and JC Paper have contributed to the upgrades shown in the table below as have favourable currency movements. With the potential for further upgrades due to capitalising 3DP costs to come we maintain our Add recommendation.

Bang to rights
21 Mar 17
Tullow unexpectedly announced a US$750m rights issue on Friday at a 45.2% discount to the previous close. While this step confirms our investment thesis, the scale of the discount and the timing look like a slap in the face for investors and/or indicative of a weaker financial position than we are modelling. We publish revised estimates to reflect the impact of the issue and cut our Target Price to 215p per share (from 245p). We maintain our Hold recommendation.
Panmure Morning Note 22-03-2017
22 Mar 17
Acacia Mining and Endeavour Mining confirmed merger talks have now ended with Endeavour claiming an inability to “create adequate value for Endeavour shareholders”, most likely, we believe, given the disappointing ruling from the Tanzanian government on copper-gold concentrate sales. We were positive on the merger and believed a credible London listed Pan-African producer capable of challenging Randgold, would have been established. We make no change to our Hold recommendation today, and expect the shares to be marked lower in early trade.
