14 What This All Means Entry point for long-term commodity bullish investors Low commodity prices + low valuations Expected Distressed Situations – Bankruptcies? Lower cash flow Lower investment = slower / no reserve and production growth Downward borrowing base adjustments Negative reserve revisions Little access to cash from asset sales until buyers return Over-Equitized Equity Investment by Private Equity 2009 is “The Year of the Merger or JV” Strong + Weak Weak + Weak JV for cash or carried interest to preserve liquidity
15 It’s Not All That Bad, is it? Yes it is – for now However… High Yield Market showing signs of life for BB names Select equity transactions for opportunistic acquisitions or salvation Significant assets should be available in 2009 for liquid buyers as a result of downward borrowing base adjustments Merger of equals on an equivalent value basis always an opportunity but subject to bank participation “It’s darkest before the dawn”
