Reports 2Q16 Results In Line, Lowered Credit Capacity, Operational Catalysts Anticipated by YearEnd
26 Aug 16
Ikkuma announced its 2Q16 results that, despite ongoing volume curtailments and uneconomic natural gas shut-ins that resulted in production below our outlook, matched our expectations on a cash flow and capital spending basis. The Company has increased its 2016e capital guidance to $15-$17 mm (previously $10-15 mm) for the second time this year to allow for 2 (gross) additional natural gas recompletions over the back half of 2016e. In acknowledgement of a number of upcoming and potentially meaningful operational catalysts slated for 2H16e, particularly the 2x light oil well results, our 12-month target price is increased to $1.10/share (previously $0.90/share). We are maintaining our Outperform ranking
ANNOUNCES 2Q16 FINANCIAL AND OPERATING RESULTS IN LINE WITH EXPECTATIONS, LOWERED CREDIT FACILITY
25 Aug 16
Impact: Neutral to slightly negative. Ikkuma's 2Q16 financial results were consistent with expectations on a cash flow and capital spending basis, while the Company's lowered credit capacity of $40 mm ($65 mm prior) remains sufficient to execute on its modestly increased capital budget for between $15-$17 mm (up from $10-$15 mm prior) in 2016e. Operationally, Ikkuma's drilling and completion plans for its emerging light oil play have been delayed slightly due field conditions; however, these wells are still anticipated to be completed by year-end.
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 1Q16 RESULTS
27 May 16
Impact: Neutral to slightly positive. We view production and cash flow as in line to our estimates on lower E&D spending, which is positive. The Company has offered a modest bump to its 2016e capital guidance, though this was expected due to its recent flow-through financing, and will use the increased spending to test a new light oil concept on its existing acreage.
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.
The Monthly January 2017
09 Jan 17
Despite all the hullaballoo of the Brexit vote and the subsequent election of Donald Trump as the next US President, the UK stock market prospered last year, especially in the latter few months of 2016. The combination of a depreciating currency – making $ earnings more valuable in relative terms - and the Trump emphasis on infrastructure expenditure drove the stock market higher

Minor delay but lower cost and better visibility enhance the investment profile
13 Jan 17
First oil at Stella is delayed by about a month, reducing the contribution of Stella to FY17 production by the same period. While this has an impact on FY17e free cash flow, this is negligible to our valuation. More importantly, FY17 opex are estimated at only US$18/boe, below our estimates of US$20/boe. There are opportunities to reduce opex further. Harrier is expected to reach first oil in 2018, one year earlier than we expected and at a cost of US$40 mm lower than we anticipated. The overall development cost is less than US$6.0/boe. Ithaca holds numerous discoveries around Stella that would be developed with a similar cost structure to Harrier.
