Gear Energy Expands 2016e Drilling Program on Unchanged Budget
09 Sep 16
Corporate production levels reported to date for 3Q16e are consistent with our current estimate of ~5,460 boe/d. Capital cost reductions have made room for 2x additional heavy oil wells to be drilled before the end of the year and within the Company’s prior $12.5 mm budget. Gear remains on track to achieve its previously discussed exit target of 6,400 boe/d in December. Given no material changes to our near term outlook, we are maintaining our 12-month target price of $1.00 per share alongside an Outperform recommendation.
ANNOUNCES 2016 OPERATIONAL UPDATE
08 Sep 16
Impact: Positive. Outperformance and capital cost reductions at Gear's Wildmere and Paradise Hill properties will see the Company add 2x wells to its 2016e development program without increasing its 2016e budget, while remaining on track to achieve its prior exit rate of 6,400 boe/d.
Gear Reports Second Quarter Results
04 Aug 16
Gear reported second quarter financial and operating results that were ahead of expectations. The Company reiterates its intent to reinitiate drilling activities this summer with no changes to its guidance. There are no material changes to our 2017e forecast on receipt of its report, and as such our $1.00/sh 12-month target price and Outperform ranking are unchanged.
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.
Acquires Striker Exploration Corp
07 Jul 16
We are providing a revised forecast subsequent to a research restriction period following Gear’s $20.1 mm equity financing, issuing ~28.8 mm shares at $0.70/ sh concurrent with its announcement of its intent to acquire Striker Exploration Ltd., a smaller public corporate entity with assets in central Alberta, via a plan of arrangement that we value at ~$67 mm. Citing a markedly improved financial position, a compelling valuation and the resumption of its E&D efforts in 2H16e, we are increasing our 12-month target price to $1.00/sh and reinstating an Outperform ranking.

Elderstreet stake acquired 02 GENERAL NEWS Globalworth premium In this issue Venture capital firm Draper Esprit has taken a 30.8% stake in venture capital trust manager Elderstreet. Both investment managers focus on the technology sector and they will be able to co-invest. Elderstreet has investments in a number of AIM-quoted companies through its VCTs. The purchase was funded by an issue of Draper Esprit shares worth just over £250,000. Simon Cook, the chief executive of Draper Esprit, is a former partner at Elderstreet so he knows the business and the people who run it, although he did leave more than 14 years ago. Cook has previously acquired portfolios from 3i and Cazenove, two other firms where he has worked. Draper Esprit has an option to acquire the remaining shares in Elderstreet, which has more than £25m under management. Adding Elderstreet to the group enables Draper Esprit to offer investors a range of EIS funds, VCTs and an ISA qualifying listed evergreen patient capital fund. The enlarged group has venture capital assets under management of more than £350m. At the end of September 2016, Draper Esprit had a net asset value of 352p a share, which is similar to the current share price. The June 2016 flotation price was 300p a share. Draper Esprit is quoted on Ireland’s Enterprise Securities Market as well as AIM.

Since our last outlook note, Quadrise has begun to supply MSAR for extended LONO sea trials, paving the way for commercial adoption from calendar H217 onwards. In August it signed a memorandum of understanding with clients in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), which is a key enabler for progressing the production-to-combustion pilot there. In October it completed a placing and open offer raising a total of £5.25m (gross). This should enable it to transition comfortably to the commercial phase on successful completion of the LONO and KSA trials.

Raising Target Price to 2,500p per share
01 Nov 16
Royal Dutch reported clean EPS of US$0.35, nearly 50% ahead of consensus. More importantly, cash flow jumped QoQ to US$8.5bn which should go a long way to confirming Shell’s capacity to maintain the current dividend, despite the increase in gearing to 29.2%. Upstream returned to profitability on an underlying basis for the first time since 1Q15. We believe these results confirm our view that Shell’s dividend can and will be maintained at US$0.47 per quarter and we increase our Target Price to 2,500p per share, given further sterling weakness.
Conviction List Q4 2016
05 Oct 16
Since its inception in 2010, the Conviction List has outperformed the market in 13 of 18 periods and a reinvested Conviction List would have returned 255% against a Small Companies index that would have returned 130%. Our Conviction List returned 3.7% over the last quarter; this was set against the benchmark UK Small Companies index that returned 11.3% over the same period. Our Q4 portfolio reflects our outlook for a temporary sweet spot for UK growth during the second half of 2016. The downside risk from the uncertainty of the EU Referendum result has been countered by stimulus from the Bank of England, signs of a looser fiscal stance and an 18% YoY reduction in the Sterling Exchange Rate. Compressed corporate fixed income spreads continue to provide a valuation underpin for global equities.
