Ideas get bigger when you share them...

May 8, 2014 ( newswire) Pacific Rubiales reported financials for 1Q14 below our initial estimates; however we believe that the market already priced in these results after the company released its operational update two weeks ago. We believe the outlook for the company remains constructive and expect further increases on production and selling volumes. Finally, we expect to obtain new information regarding STAR at the end of May or beginning of June.

Net production for the period stood at 148.8 kbpd (+16.4% relative to 1Q13). Growth on net production mainly came from the acquisition of Petrominerales, which contributed with 25 kbpd. Operational restrictions in the OBC pipeline and water disposal issues in the Rubiales field, prevented the company from higher production levels. Revenues reached USD 1,283 mn, equivalent to a 2% y/y growth while EBITDA increased 1.9% y/y. We highlight that Pacific Rubiales managed to post a 55.2% EBITDA margin (in line with 1Q13) and a netback of USD 63.80/barrel which is higher than those released in 4Q13 and 1Q13. Net income for the period was USD 118.5 mn (-1.9% y/y) due to higher costs (the restrictions on the transport infrastructure didn’t affect production volumes, but caused cost overruns of ~USD 30 mn).

For upcoming quarters, we expect production to further increase driven by assets of Petrominerales and CPE-6. In addition, selling volumes are expected to increase as the company delivered the PAP clause volumes and inventory increased due to a cargo that was being loaded at the end of March.

We reiterate our T.P of COP 42,200 and a buy rating. Valuation remains attractive and implicit multiples for PREC support our view. EV/EBITDA14e is placed at 2.9x vs 5.7x from peers.
