EnCap Investments L.P. Alignment of interests: Skin in the game Incentive structure - they make money when we do Involved in everything they are doing Competitive advantages: Geographic focus Land position Technical/operational niche Business development/relationships 6 EnCap Investments L.P. EnCap Considerations
EnCap Investments L.P. 7 Management Considerations Economic considerations: Terms Capital available (size of provider) Required management contribution (skin in the game) Relationship considerations: Cultural “fit” Track record / reputation Understanding of the industry (seen both up and down cycles) Source of deal flow
EnCap Investments L.P. Lower-risk drilling strategies Resource plays / unconventional gas Acquisition of acreage in known producing provinces with limited initial capital exposure. As drilling success warrants and as hard value is created the capital program is “ramped up” for acreage and drilling. Joint venture partnerships with large independents and majors with “long” land positions Value creation through the application of new technologies to conventional reservoirs with inconsistent production histories Traditional acquire and exploit strategies Infrastructure opportunities related to successful development drilling Private Equity Company Strategies 8 EnCap Investments L.P.
Equal emphasis on capital preservation and value creation Investment Strategy / Philosophy Back seasoned management teams with compelling business plans and like-minded approach to risk management Multi-basin strategy provides asset diversification Capital generally advanced in tranches as attractive opportunities are presented and proof of concept is established Engineerable reserve value substantially underpins invested capital Sell assets when the market will pay a premium 9
EnCap Investments L.P. Proven money-makers have demonstrable track record of creating value Initial commitments typically larger Receive somewhat more favorable terms Greater upfront spending flexibility Unproven teams Typically betting on a strong technical / business development team coming out of a large independent or major Early focus on strategy and risk management Differentiation between Proven and Unproven Teams 10
EnCap Investments L.P. Private Equity Myths Over involved in business Exercise too much control / influence Board representation is a function of size of investment 19 out of 20 times we say “yes” Do not tell people who to... what to... when to... Generally do not require anything more than banks Impatient money 11
EnCap Investments L.P. Deal Structure / Management Incentive EnCap generally contributes 95%+ of equity capital Company is organized as a tax efficient flow-through vehicle, usually an LLC Capital structure incorporates senior bank debt in addition to private equity Multi-tiered “waterfall” back-in arrangement positions management to earn a blended 20%-25% of the company Structure produces alignment of interest between EnCap and management Both EnCap and management have board representation 12
EnCap Investments L.P. Drilling success Category shifting Premium for size Public/private market arbitrage Being someone’s “strategic acquisition” Running room Captured sufficient land Repeatability of proven concept Value Creation – About more than buying low and selling high 13 EnCap Investments L.P.
What makes a quality asset? Hard to generalize, but… 14 Operated – control your destiny High value drilling economics Long life Abundance of upside opportunities Multiple pay horizons, infill drilling, field extensions… High margin Low transportation costs/differentials (infrastructure) High btu gas/sweet crude High net revenue interest (NRI) Bottom line: is someone else going to want to buy it from you?
