Falling oil prices over the past several months have pushed oilfield service stocks into very cheap territory. West Texas Intermediate crude has fallen from over $65/bbl in late April to about $51/bbl today, below our midcycle forecast of $55/bbl. Our median covered oilfield service company is trading at a 20% discount to fair value. Valuations look about as cheap as they did last December, when many names breached 15-plus year lows. For oilfield service companies, we think the market is pricing in overly pessimistic views on growth in oil and gas capital expenditures, as we've previously hig...

Item 3: Approve the Remuneration ReportThe remuneration structure is satisfactory, though accelerated vesting is possible. Potential and actual total variable remuneration exceed guidelines, but not very much. They are moderate in comparison with UK market practice. Overall, the quantum during the year was not excessive. We recommend shareholders vote in favor.

The LTI also includes relative TSR as a performance metric. Nevertheless, the quantum is not excessive and even maximum potential amounts are moderate. On balance, we recommend shareholders vote in favor. Item 4: Approve the Remuneration PolicyThe main concern with the Company's remuneration policy is that pa...
Item 2: Approve the Remuneration ReportThe remuneration structure is unsatisfactory. The main concern at the Company is that the potential maximum incentive pay including the bonus, matching shares on the deferred portion of the bonus and the LTI amounts to 1000% of base salary, which is considered grossly excessive. Actual incentive pay during the year was1.6 times the ECGS limit. Furthermore, variable remuneration is overly reliant on a single performance metric, benchmark profit before tax. A second performance criteria will be used in the coming year. We note that the Company has adjusted ...
