  • My personal experience with research paper writing services was highly positive. I sent a request to ⇒ www.HelpWriting.net ⇐ and found a writer within a few minutes. Because I had to move house and I literally didn’t have any time to sit on a computer for many hours every evening. Thankfully, the writer I chose followed my instructions to the letter. I know we can all write essays ourselves. For those in the same situation I was in, I recommend ⇒ www.HelpWriting.net ⇐.

  3. 3. Exploration Company Business Model • Step 1: Acquire – Acquire early stage exploration assets – low entry costs • Step 2a: Build – Develop prospectivity of assets – G&G work, reserve estimate, drilling • Step 2b: Build – Gain increased valuation of assets and company with Step 2a • Step 3: Sell – Sell assets or sell company at tremendous profit (just before drilling or on discovery) 3

  5. 5. Salient Points on Model • No cash flow • Until discovery of oil and/or sale of asset or company (“Payout”) • Equity is sole source of capital • Working capital before Payout is from sale of equity in (a) asset and/or (b) company • Process-driven value • Value accretions of asset and company predictable through asset prospectivity development • High risk • But high reward when successfully executed 5
  6. 6. Successful Example • Pre-drilling of Rovuma Field, Mozambique: $18m valuation • 12 months later, after drilling and huge discovery in Rovuma: $2bn valuation 6

  9. 9. 9 Reasons for Price Decline • Increased Supply – North American shale turning U.S. to net exporter of oil – OPEC and producers such as Russia refusing to cut production • Diminished Demand – Slowdown of growth from BRICS
  10. 10. 10 Impact on Finance for Pure Exploration • Slide in market capitalizations of oil companies • Sharp decline in equity investor appetite for oil stocks • Cut in exploration budgets by majors and big independents = sharp decline in appetite for farm-ins

  14. 14. The Original ERHC Plan Remember the Exploration Business Model and E&P Value Proposition in Part 1: • Step 1. Acquire frontier E&P rights for low entry costs • Step 2a. Build asset value through greenfield G&G work, attract partners and drill wells • Step 2b. Build company value by doing 2a, driving ERHC rapidly up the value curve • Step 3. Sell ERHC or E&P rights for tremendous profit prior to drilling or upon discovery (within 5 years) 14
  15. 15. 15 Oil Frontier: Sao Tome & Principe
  16. 16. Original Plan Execution: Step 1. Acquire • 1997: Exclusive Agreement with STP • 1999-2003: ERHC and STP renegotiate Agreement • 2004: ERHC exercises preferential minority rights in the JDZ • 2005-2006: ERHC teams up with International Operators to acquire additional rights in JDZ Blocks 2, 3 and 4 16

  19. 19. Original Plan Execution: Step 3. Sell? • 2010: Results of drilling – No commercial discoveries announced – >$400 million exploration costs written off – Value curve inverts • What to do? 19 Wind up the Company? Renew plan and start again?
  20. 20. Renewing the Plan with Onshore Focus • 2010-2011 – Acquire • Chad – BDS 2008 (onshore) • Kenya – Block 11A (onshore) • 2011-2014 – Build (Exploration) • Secured CEPSA as farm-in partner in Kenya • Formation of partnerships in Chad (ongoing) – Build (Value) • At inception of value curve again 20
  21. 21. 21 Financing Before the Oil Crash • Premised on usual upward trajectory of share price as drilling approached – Existing equity shareholders – Rights Issue (2012) – Farmout – Kenya (2013) – New equity financing – Convertible Debt (2014) – More farmout – EEZ (2015) – Drilling in Kenya – (2016):If success, put up for sale (e.g: Cove)
  22. 22. 22 Financing After the Oil Crash • Crash in global oil prices – Largely unforeseen – Industry-wide repercussions – Crash in pure exploration companies’ equity • Convertibles pose challenge – Conversion now favors creditors unduly • Farmouts now more challenging – Drastic cuts in exploration budgets – Marked withdrawals from exploration projects
  23. 23. 23 Options • Farmouts – Heightened interest in Kenya on progress toward drilling – Chad • Investment by high net-worth investor(s) – Reverse split to make investment easier • Merger – With well-funded E&P company • Onshore-asset subsidiary listing and IPO – On emerging market stock exchange (with continuing appetite for E&P) – On traditional market (subject to oil price upswing)
  24. 24. 24 Cycles • Historically, oil price cycles • Upward swing should come • Companies like ERHC present great investment opportunity now $0.00 $25.00 $50.00 $75.00 $100.00 $125.00 $150.00 1990 2015
