Australian Worldwide Exploration (AWE): Fundamental View

Macquarie Research Equities (MRE) Fundamental View:
1. AWE has confirmed it is in exclusive negotiations with ARC Energy
2. MRE believes the portfolio of common assets held by both AWE and ARC (Cliff Head (AWE 27.5%, ARC 30%) and BassGas (AWE 30%, ARC 12.5%) would make them a neat fit for each other.
3. MRE believes there is potential upside to both assets
4. MRE believes >A$50m net cash and corporate overhead savings could be achieved.
5. In MRE’s view the current robust oil price coupled with strong Tui production leaves AWE in a strong cash position and makes capital raisings or debt financing unnecessary to fund the purchase.
6. Catalyst: Upside at BassGas and Casino plus continued Tui outperformance.
