Creative Capital Options
Despite the historic surge in U.S. public equity markets, oil and gas players aren’t feeling the love. Pressures to live within cash-flow and self-fund organic growth seldom have been greater. Today the executive suite must use creativity as well as financial savvy to meet the needs of the business.
The influence of private equity (and private debt) is growing. As reserve-based lenders tighten requirements, redeterminations only increase pressure. Creative alternatives -- like asset securitization, drilling JVs with non-E&Ps, convertible preferred shares and co-sponsored funds -- may be needed to get deals done.
Now more capital providers are targeting the lower-middle market. At the same time, demonstrating corporate commitment to environmental responsibility, social license factors, and governance can determine who returns your calls.
