Cairn Energy’s share price falls on full-year results, asset sales and acquisition news

first_imgCairn Energy’s share price falls on full-year results, asset sales and acquisition news Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! .The Cairn Energy (LSE: CNE) share price has fallen in Tuesday trade so far following a string of market updates. The UK oil share has since pared gains but, at 192p per share, it remains 3% down from Monday’s close.Cairn Energy announced today that revenues slumped 26% year-on-year in 2020 to $324.5m. This was due to the collapse in oil prices which accompanied the Covid-19 outbreak and the subsequent economic downturn. Cairn realised an average price of $42.56 a barrel last year versus the $65.70 it achieved back in 2019.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Meanwhile, production costs rose 12% between 2020 and the previous year to $75.9m. This added to Cairn Energy’s woes and, as a consequence, the company swung to a pre-tax loss of $117.5m. This compares with the profit of $119.2m the oilie reported back in 2019.Production drops tooOn the production front, Cairn Energy said that its net average was 21,350 barrels of oil equivalent per day in 2020. This was in line with guidance, but down from the 23,739 barrels which it reported in 2019.The fossil fuel giant said production at its Kraken asset in the North Sea “remained strong throughout the year.” Production here averaged around 37,500 barrels of oil equivalent a day, up from approximately 35,600 barrels in 2019. But output at its offshore Catcher field was less impressive. Operational problems in the fourth quarter meant production here averaged around 51,200 barrels per day in 2020. This was down from around 67,200 a day the previous year.Big changes at Cairn EnergyTuesday’s been a busy day over at Cairn Energy. On top of those full-year results, the oil company announced big changes to its asset portfolio.First off, Cairn announced its intention to sell its interests in Kraken and Catcher to Waldorf Production Limited for $460m. An additional contingent will be payable depending upon oil prices between now and 2025 too.Cairn Energy said that “the divestment of these assets, as they fall into natural decline, will further strengthen our ability to pursue Cairn’s strategic goals.”The company also announced it plans to acquire “a portfolio of upstream oil and gas production, development and exploration interests” from Royal Dutch Shell with fellow fossil fuel explorer Cheiron.The assets — which are located in Egypt’s Western Desert region — will initially cost a combined $646m. An additional $280m will be payable on certain requirements being met. Cairn and Cheiron will be liable for a 50/50 split on these amounts.Cairn Energy said that the portfolio “offers low cost production, near-term development and exploration potential, provides immediate operating cashflow contribution and adjusts our overall hydrocarbon split towards gas.”The company estimates that the assets will add between 33,000 and 38,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day to group production in 2021. Approximately two-thirds of this total is comprised of natural gas.

Equipment rental company HSS Hire (LSE: HSS) had a disappointing start to 2021. After reaching multi-year highs in mid-2020, this penny stock had crashed to sub-10p levels by year end. But I think things may be starting to change, which probably explains why HSS Hire’s share price has started inching up.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Here are three positives I see:#1. Construction is resilientThe construction industry is in a resilient place. Last week, the UK’s economic growth numbers for January showed that construction was the only sector to grow as the country entered the third lockdown. It grew by 0.9% from the month before, while the UK economy, in contrast, shrank by 2.9%. I think this bodes well for HSS Hire, which is closely linked to construction. Incidentally, the company’s share price has spiked since the number was released, which I think may not be a coincidence. #2. Policy pushThe future looks bright too. Policy makers are clearly doing their bit. The UK budget for 2021, released earlier in the month, saw an extension of the stamp duty waiver. Easier availability of loans with 5% deposit is also a positive policy measure for real estate, which is already on fire.According to the FTSE 100 real estate e-marketplace Rightmove, the gap between property demand and supply right now is the biggest it has been in 10 years. Considering the link between property and construction, I think there could be beneficial ripple effects on the sector, another plus for HSS Hire. #3. Pivoting penny stockWhile last year has been pretty bad for HSS hire, I like that it has accelerated its digital strategy. Because of this, 30% of its new contracts were raised through digital channels for the half-year ending 27 June 2020. I think this is an important development not just because it gives a better shot at growth during the long-drawn-out pandemic but also because digital will increasingly be the way business is done in the future. The downside for HSS HireWhile these developments give HSS Hire a chance to get out of its current funk (its revenue fell for the half-year and it reported a net loss), I think it is essential to look at its performance in earlier years too. The company has reported a loss in four of the last five years, including the half-year numbers for last year. The fact that it had showed a small profit in 2019 makes me hopeful that it can make a comeback, but very cautiously so. Also, its debt is high. Its debt leverage, which is net debt divided by pre-tax earnings, is at 2.9 times, almost unmoved from 2019. HSS Hire aims to bring it down to 2.5 times.Because of this, it has decided not to pay a dividend, which for now also makes the stock less attractive. The upshotClearly, in terms of financials, HSS Hire has much to sort out. While positives are piling up for it, I am not yet convinced of its long-term prospects.

(Photo by Stu Forster/Getty Images) Country boy: Tindall will take on added responsibility of back coachGLOUCESTER RUGBY’S new Director of Rugby, Nigel Davies, was delighted to confirm that Mike Tindall has signed a contract to become a player/ coach at the club next season.Davies was meeting the media for the first time in his new role having only been at Kingsholm for two weeks. He has hit the ground running and his first key decision has been to keep the former England international at Kingsholm, at the club where he has played for the past seven seasons.Davies has a track record of encouraging internal progression from the playing squad into coaching roles – Simon Easterby and Mark Jones are examples at the Scarlets – and he is continuing that trend at Gloucester. TAGS: Gloucester LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “Mike has a lot of valuable experience and great loyalty to Gloucester Rugby and its supporters and understands what it means to be a part of this club,” said Davies. “It’s important to have people involved that underpin your culture and values as a playing group.“He will be operating as player and backs coach for me in the coming year. I think he has a very strong tradition and heritage with the club and a very good rugby brain. I think it’s very important to have a certain amount of continuity at any club with your senior players and I see Mike providing that continuity.”last_img read more

While the arguments were progressing before a bench comprising Justices SS Shinde and MS Karnik, Ponda informed the bench that he got a message that the Magistrate has taken cognizance of the chargesheet.Following that, Ponda sought leave to amend the writ petition to bring on record the chargesheet.The bench recorded that cognizance has been taken on the chargesheet. Also, allowing Ponda’s request, the bench directed the Magistrate to expedite the grant of copy of the chargesheet and the case documents on a formal application made by Goswami through his advocate.The bench then adjourned the hearing till January 6.It was on December 4 that the Raigad Police filed a 1,914 pages long charge sheet against Goswami and two others, before a court in Alibaug in neighbouring Raigad district, where the case for alleged abetment of suicide of interior designer Anvay Naik and his mother Kumud has been registered. The trio has been charged under IPC sections 306 (abetment to suicide), 109 (punishment for abetment) and 34 (act done by several people in furtherance of common intention).Following that, he filed a petition in the High Court seeking a direction that the Magistrate should not take cognizance of the chargesheet. In the application, Goswami placed reliance on the November 27 judgment passed by the Supreme Court which observed that the allegations in the FIR did not prima facie constitute offence of abetment to suicide under Section 306 of the Indian Penal Code.Referring to the observations made by the Supreme Court, Ponda submitted “Justice Chandrachud’s judgment is my best argument”.The bench responded that the Supreme Court judgment has also clarified that its observations are prima facie in nature. Further, the observations were made at the FIR stage and now the case is at the stage of chargesheet, Justice Shinde, the presiding judge remarked.”The observations of the Supreme Court are prima facie, the judgment has clarified. The judgment is binding only on law and not on facts. The SC has made it clear that the factual observations are preliminary”, Justice Shinde said.”Earlier, there was lack of clarity on whether interim bail can be granted in Article 226. Now this landmark judgment has come saying even regular bail can be granted under Art 226. This judgment will guide us”, Justice Shinde added referring to the SC judgment.Ponda clarified that he was not seeking “automatic quashment” of the chargesheet based on the Supreme Court judgment. But the judgment has to be respected, he added.At that juncture, Ponda informed the bench that the Magistrate has taken cognizance of the matter.Goswami was arrested by Raigad police on November 4 in connection with the case and was remanded to two weeks judicial custody. On November 11, the Supreme Court ordered his release from the custody, after the Bombay High Court refused to grant him interim bail. As many as 65 persons are named as witnesses in the charge sheet that runs into 1,914 pages.It relies on purported suicide note as the `dying declaration’. Naik’s handwriting has been matched with the writing in the suicide note and forensic report indicated that he was not under pressure while writing it, as per the chargesheet.Six statements recorded before a magistrate under section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure are also part of the charge sheet. Such statements can be used as evidence during trial.Anvay Naik and his mother Kumud committed suicide in 2018, allegedly because of non-payment of dues by firms of Goswami and other two accused.The case, closed for want of evidence in 2019, was reopened in May this year, with Goswami alleging that the Maharashtra government was pursuing a vendetta against him for his work as a TV journalist.
