Reports 2Q16 Results; Outlook Unchanged
12 Aug 16
Pason reported 2Q16 results modestly behind expectations as R&D spending was higher than we had anticipated. Pason has reduced its 2016e capital program to $25 mm from $30 mm as it tries to achieve positive FCF before dividend payments. Our forecast would suggest that the Company will achieve this with positive FCF of $16 mm (which includes a cash tax recovery of $11 mm). The Company’s operations in Saudi Arabia continue to capture market share which is increasing profitability. The Company believes it is adequately staffed to handle a 50% increase in activity. This depicts the embedded operating leverage in the business.
1Q16e Preview and Commodity Update – All Is Quiet on the Western Front
13 Apr 16
We are updating our oilfield industry forecasts post the release of FirstEnergy’s new commodity price forecast for crude oil and natural gas on March 24, 2016. We have updated our 2016e Canadian well count/drilling days forecast to 3,209/37,335 from 3,800/43,325. In 2017e, we have left our forecast unchanged at 6,200 wells/70,200 days. In the U.S., our 2016e rig count forecast is now 482 (prior: 610) and 2017e is 675 (prior: 775). Data for 1Q16e came in weaker than our prior forecast anticipated, and we have lowered our estimates across our coverage universe accordingly. We are currently below 1Q16 consensus for 15 of 18 companies in our coverage universe, but the percentages are misleading given the absolute size of EBITDAS being earned this quarter.

Sound Energy is an AIM-listed upstream gas company
27 Feb 17
Sound Energy is an AIM-listed upstream gas company with a balanced exploration and appraisal portfolio focussed on three strategic assets in onshore Morocco and Italy. The share price has trebled in the past year, following drilling success in the Tendrara licence of eastern Morocco. The work program of the next 12-18 months has the potential to de-risk additional gas resources in Morocco and Italy, providing short-term catalysts for further upside in the share price. However, any disappointing drilling results might leave the stock rather exposed given recent momentum and lack of certified reserves, although we recognise that the optionality in the portfolio would remain substantial.
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.
Indices are not as flat as pancakes
27 Feb 17
On Shrove Tuesday, some of the various small cap indices we follow continue to hit or remain close to all-time highs, benefiting from growing optimism about the global economy. The State of the Union Address to Congress later today and the UK Budget next Wednesday are key forthcoming events that markets await. In the Budget, the updated OBR forecasts regarding the prospects for UK growth and the state of the public finances will no doubt, be the focus. Primarily, the accelerating flow of forthcoming company results will continue to be the key for investors as we await the passage of the Brexit Bill.
