In an April 10 research note, Mackie Research Capital Corp. analyst Bill Newman reported that Prairie Provident Resources Inc.'s (PPR:TSX) US$60 million, senior-secured revolving note facility was confirmed. At year-end 2018, the company had drawn US$49 million on it.
With the confirmation, the company "should have the financial flexibility to execute on its 2019 capital program," Newman added, the budget for which is CA$14.2 million. Of that allocated total, CA$12.3 million is for lower risk development work, including drilling three horizontal Glauconite wells at Princess in Southern Alberta. Also planned is expansion of the energy company's waterflood program at its Evi property in Northern Alberta.
Also regarding the financial vehicle, Newman noted, the Prudential Capital Group relaxed some of the related covenants until year-end 2019 in consideration of the atypically wide Canadian oil price differentials that happened in Q4/18.
Mackie has a Buy rating and a CA$0.70 per share target price on Prairie Provident, whose stock is currently trading at around CA$0.20 per share.[NLINSERT]
