INITIATING COVERAGE BLACKSPUR ACQUISITION IS TRANSOFORMATIVE
We initiate coverage on Calima Energy (“Calima” or the “Company”) on a free cash flow (“FCF”) basis with a value of AUD0.025/share. Calima is an Australian listed exploration and production (E&P) company, and a Canadian oil and gas pure play. Its assets include a large-scale liquids rich gas play in the Montney fairway in British Columbia, a well-established oil and gas producing region with a supportive energy production policy.
On April 30, 2021, Calima completed the acquisition of Blackspur Oil (“Blackspur’). Blackspur was caught out in a poor oil environment while laden with a heavy debt burden and Calima was able to capitalise on the opportunity, acquiring the target at a deep discount of C$61.5m, including C$40.0m in debt. This is against over C$200m invested by Blackspur since inception in 2012. The acquisition is earnings accretive and has raised Calima’s status to the realm of a mid-tier, ASX-listed oil producer.
Our one-year price target of AUD0.025/share implies an upside of over 2.5x
