2Q16 Hit With Unplanned Outages, Improved Outlook for 2H16
12 Aug 16
Delphi reported 2Q16 results that were behind our production and cash flow estimates. Operations during the quarter were materially disrupted by a one month outage at the SemCAMs K3 gas plant. Operations are now on track in 2H16e with corporate volumes back in the 8,500 boe/d range. Ideally, the Company now expects to exit the year at a rate up 500 boe/d from prior guidance at the midpoint. While cash flow is up 20% on higher anticipated 2017e production, we have left our target price intact at $1.25 per share for the time being, reflecting multiple compression over our prior view as growth continues to remain hampered in the current commodity price environment due to a capitally constrained position, although remain constructive on the Company’s Bigstone Montney asset and the progress achieved to date.
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.
ANNOUNCES INCREASE AND PRICING OF OFFERING
03 Jun 16
Impact - slightly positive as the increased offering will provided additional financial flexibility over the nearterm in the context of the Company's revised credit facility, although will result in a modest increase to our forecasted interest expense
Delphi Energy Announces Notes Offering, Reduction to Bank Line
02 Jun 16
Given challenging market conditions, Delphi’s bank line is being reduced and replaced with what we assume will be higher cost debt. In the event the senior notes offering does not close by the end of June then the Company will be in default of its senior credit facility. The Company is looking to issue $40 mm of senior secured notes, effectively terming out some of its debt structure, while the Company’s bank line will be reduced by ~35% to $85 mm leaving a limited amount financial flexibility going forward. With lower cash flow from higher interest costs and a reduced outlook for 2017e in order to stay within the Company’s revised borrowing base we have trimmed our target price to $1.25 per share and maintain our Market Perform ranking.
ANNOUNCES NOTES OFFERING, BANK LINE REDUCTION
30 May 16
Impact - negative as the Company's bank line is being reduced and replaced with what we assume will be higher cost debt, while if the senior notes offering does not close by the end of June then the Company will be in default of its senior credit facility
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.
