Palliser Oil & Gas Corporation (V-PXL) $0.25 (Intra-day) Recommendation: Buy (unchanged), Target: $0.40 (unchanged) Change in Management, Not Strategy VALUATION/RECOMMENDATION: Palliser’s share price reflects a sharp reversal of fortunes that began in the second half of FY13. Not only did volumes slip from 3,000 boe/d to under 2,000 but netbacks were also compressed by lower pricing. Looking ahead, Palliser’s still boasts a large inventory (160 undrilled opportunities) and this is now complemented by an underutilized infrastructure network. At issue is how exactly PXL can fund the activity ramp required to capitalize on this assembled opportunity, especially as PXL has reached its borrowing capacity under its lending agreement. To this end, Palliser is exploring all of its options including JV and possibly outright sales. While the current scenario affords investors limited visibility, some comfort can be found in the level of discounting that the market is currently placing on PXL, which is currently trading at 14% of its $1.83 NAVPS. We are maintaining our BUY recommendation with a SPECULATIVE risk rating and our $0.40 target. Company Statistics Risk: SPECULATIVE Potential Return: 48% Basic Shares O/S: 63.9MM F.D.
