Aker BP (Buy, TP: NOK330.00) - P/NAV now at an attractive level

With the share price down 20% since 23 April, the stock is once again below our estimated NAV. Historically, this has served as an attractive entry point and we have thus upgraded the stock to BUY (HOLD) with our NOK330 target price unchanged. In 2018, the average P/NAV was 1.25x. We consider our upgrade a valuation call, and believe investors should use the recent share price decline to revisit Aker BP.

Aker BP ASA: Update to Key Credit Considerations

Aker BP's credit rating is underpinned by an increasing production profile translating into improving financial and liquidity metrics amid a more benign oil & gas price environment

Aker April 11th, 2019

In general, Aker BP is in compliance with the Norwegian regulations relating to the organisation and procedures of the Annual General Meeting. Under ITEM 5, the board of directors seeks approval of the Company's remuneration guidelines. The proposed remuneration structure is not in line with ECGS' guidelines. ECGS therefore recommends to vote OPPOSE. Under ITEM 9, the nomination committee seeks approval of the (re-)election of the board of directors. In view of insufficient independent representation on the board, ECGS recommends to vote OPPOSE. Under ITEM 11, the board of directors seeks a...

Aker BP ASA (Buy, TP: NOK312.00) - Q4 with few surprises

Aker BP delivered lower than expected reported EBITDA, mainly due to a valuation effect on the underlift balance. Adjusted EBITDA was below our expectation by 5% and consensus by 6% on slightly higher production cost. We have made only smaller estimate revisions, as we consider the Q4 report rather uneventful given the recent introduction of 2019 guidance at the CMD. We believe the 2019e yield of 6.3%, and growing DPS, offers an attractive investment case; BUY and NOK312 target reiterated.

Aker BP ASA (Buy, TP: NOK308.00) - Set for a new leg in operational uplift

We consider Aker BP well positioned to lift its NAV further from efficiency improvements and by unlocking value from contingent resources. We have upgraded the stock to BUY (HOLD) and raised our target price to NOK308 (303) ahead of the CMD, as we expect a strong message on the company’s operational improvements and digitalisation efforts along with exciting near-term exploration potential.

Aker BP ASA (Hold, TP: NOK303.00) - Q3 should be supportive

Q3 EBITDA of USD736m was 5% above consensus. However, as the consensus beat was mainly related to a non-recurring tariff settlement, we consider the underlying EBITDA in line with consensus. With lowered capex guidance for 2018 and supportive production outlook, we consider the report solid.

Helge André Martinsen

Aker BP ASA (Hold, TP: NOK303.00) - Q2 a bit soft, but no drama

We reiterate our HOLD recommendation and NO303 target price following Aker BP’s Q2 numbers, which were a little short of expectations, caused by lower revenues and higher exploration cost. It has hiked its exploration budget and cut abex guidance, while other guidance is unchanged. The company reiterated guidance of upping the dividend by USD100m/year to 2021. We have made minor estimate changes, and are a bit surprised by the 6% negative share price reaction today.
