kakiminyak oil price go up is not enough. Demand must go up for higher revenue. Crude oil price go up because Opec+ squeeze the supply. But production is cut, which means less money for the producers. Have to give the market time to recover. Hopefully by next year. Stay cool guys.

Jojobaa Jojobaa Jojobaa is predicting a 50% upside for hibiscus in the next 6 months pending completion of the Repsol deal and 50% more after the completion of the Repsol deal.

First off, let's look at the macro environment for oil. Much has been said about the replacement of RE over oil. Oil's demand is approximately 45% gasoline, 18% petrochemicals, 18-20% in distillates/diesel, 6% aviation and the rest in other categories such as power generation, household etc.

While the emergence of EV will eat into the 45% gasoline demand, it is to be noted that this will happen over time, over a very very long time. Considering that the global car population stands at 1.4 billion, and that EV delivery for Tesla, stands at 1 million cars in deliveries, how many Teslas (and other big EV manufacturers) do you need to deliver in order to replace the entire 1.4billion car population and specifically how many years? Global car deliveries amount to 90 million per year and by my research, it would be a challenge itself for delivery of 4 million EV in 2021, representing a mere 5% of entire car deliveries for the year and even a smaller fraction of the entire car population. The key point here is that Gasoline demand may very well decrease, but it will take a very very long period of time before it vanishes. This is not even taking into account the supply chain associated with the production of Lithium Ion and infrastructure (charging station) needed to effectively transition into a global car population consisting mainly of EV only.

At the same time, the ESG push has also forced non state owned oil majors to cut down heavily on capital expenditure. Typically, oil producers have a reserve life that can last 10 years - 15 years of production. In order to merely maintain production, the capital expenditure of oil producers need to be maintained year on year in order to sustain this. If you reduce capital expenditure by 10%, then somewhere down the road, your production or supply will come down by 10%, all else equal. As non stated owned oil majors synchronize a capex cut across the board the oil supply will face a crunch, and not even the increased investment from state owned major will be able to cover this gap, as cash is a finite resource, and state owned majors will have an obligation to plug their budget deficits that they have accrued to support their respective economy during the Covid years.

The long explanation above merely points to the fact that oil will not lose its value overnight, on the contrary based on these facts above, one can reasonably expect oil to surge in the very near future, as the SUPPLY CRUNCH WILL OUTWEIGHT THE EXPECTED DECREASE IN DEMAND. A simple question to make my point, do us Malaysians expect to see 15% of EV on the road next year? Maybe 2025? Well, Exxonmobil just cut its capital expenditure versus pre covid by 30% for two years straight. If 50% of the oil supply by oil majors cuts their capex by half then in theory, gasoline demand will decrease by 15%, which means 6 million barrels of oil demand lost. However supply theoretically decreased by 15 million. This relationship isn't perfect but it is up to you to weigh it.

Now, if what I'm predicting above comes true, tell me, do you want a piece of Hibiscus now or not?

Current share is 2 bil units
Ebita 2022 = 250mil (existing) + 550mil (New)
PAT say 50% = 400mil for 2022
400mil/ 3 bil shares x 10PE = RM 1.3++
Unless there is big impairment/ depreciation again
10/06/2021 1:01 PM
Jojobaa Now Jojobaa will talk about the cash flow and profitability of Hibiscus Petroleum, which Jojobaa thinks that the investment community is severely underestimating.

Today Hibiscus Petroleum, pre-Repsol acquisition, has a production of 9,500 barrels a day, translating loosely to 3.4-3.7 million barrels of oil production a year. There is no seasonality involved, they produce consistently at this rate, as oil is a commodity.

To reconcile the revenue of Hibiscus is fairly simple, you take the amount of oil sold multiply by the oil price realized. Hibiscus does not traditionally have a hedging policy. For illustration purposes, since 1 April 2021, oil price has been hovering bound range between USD60 to USD70. Let us try to forecast the annual P&L of Hibiscus for FY2022, before the Repsol assets are consolidated.

Based on production of 3.7 million barrels based on an exchange rate of USD1 to RM4.1, the yearly revenue of Hibiscus is RM986 million. This essentially means that with yearly production remaining constant until depleted (HIbiscus has a reserves of 40 million 2P oil which will last them approximately 10 years given current production rate) oil price is the single most important to the revenue and results of Hibiscus Petroleum, and no such companies on Bursa has its results tied so much to the Brent oil price.

Following on let's talk about the cost structure, there are two types of costs that Hibiscus Petroleum has to pay. First is its opex costs, meaning the cost of depreciation of machineries, manpower, power etc. This ranges from USD13-20 bucks depending on the uptime of the production.

Second there are other costs not associated directly to the operation that includes provision for decomissioning liabilities and abandonment of oil field at the end of its life, head office costs and other costs.

All in all, per barrel of oil, the ALL IN costs of Hibiscus should be circa USD35-40 bucks per barrel. For discussion sake, let us use USD40 ALL IN cost to illustrate the numbers that Hibiscus can generate.

3.7 million x (65 - 40) = RM380 million profit before tax

PAT will be RM380 million x 0.62 (Oil income tax is 38%) = RM235 million.

How significant is the Repsol Acquisition? Assuming the economics and numbers of the Repsol assets are like for like to Hibiscus's existing assets, Hibiscus's profit is expected to triple to RM700 million as will triple its production profile. However, without getting the opex base, carrying value of its intangibles and PPE, the provision of decommissioning liabilities, it would be difficult to pinpoint the exact numbers of the Repsol assets. The announcement of the transaction did reveal the profitability of the Kinabalu PSC and the PM3CAA PSC which equates to about RM400 million in 2018 when oil price was trading at a similar level to now.

Jojobaa is of the view that the oil market will thrive in the coming near term and hence Hibiscus will be at the forefront top pick to benefit from this thesis. If you do not believe oil price will trade at anything above USD50 USD for the coming years, then it is best you avoid this stock.
10/06/2021 2:01 PM
Jasonn Totally agree. One more thing to add on, asset depreciation is related to non cash deduction, thus the actual cash flow from existing operating will much more than 300m. If add these new asset, the actual cash come in from operating will > 600m.
10/06/2021 3:38 PM
Jasonn We talk many about the good side and the bad side is the high capex for new exploring and development oil fields and drilling of new well etc. For the new repsol asset, they will need about usd 100m for 1 exploration and 2 development oil field project in coming years. In UK, also about usd 100m+ for 2 development oil fields ( teal West, Eagle field). Marigold & sunflowers development oil fields will also need much more capex. Other than that, they also have a usd 35m capex project for existing anasuria oil fields but it will be at later stage as need to wait dnex to complete & raise fund for it.
10/06/2021 3:48 PM
Jasonn Overall, it need more than 1000m capex in these few years for the above mentioned projects. Daily oil production output will be much increase as a results from these high capex.

kahhoeng without repsol deal, hibiscus should be flying given higher brent. Now, with repsol deal, hibiscus barely move, why? Guess only one explanation, many doubts over the deal...
11/06/2021 9:27 AM
slingsot Thanks Jojobaa for an in-depth view. Enjoyed it very much.

The chart shows a steady uptrend and support is seen around 0.67. Also I read that Scott Harney, founder of Harmonic Trading, is of the view that oil will trade 75-100 in 23/24.

I am am amateur trader. What Jojobaa said reinforces my belief. Thanks!
11/06/2021 10:04 AM
Investformilkmoney Thanks Jojobaa for the analysis. I might add, as a Malaysian, I can't afford any EV car unless the price drop to Myvi range. So I can say the usage of oil still required in a very long term.
11/06/2021 10:06 AM
Reap88 Slowly coming back to reality after all the excitement. Must show profit first to justify the optimistic projections
11/06/2021 12:28 PM
Jojobaa Since Jojobaa has spoken about the macro economics of the oil supply/demand relationship, Jojobaa will now speak about the transaction of Repsol, and how the structure of the acquisition and the mechanics involved is designed to minimize the risk, and maximize the upside of the deal.

Google Hibiscus's chart, and you will notice that its share price has gone up from 20 cents in 2016 to about 1 dollar 2018/2019. Why? Between this period, Hibiscus bought its North Sabah asset, and increased its production from 2500 to 9000 barrels a day. It also benefited from an increase in oil price, and the acquisition is the main reason why Hibiscus's market cap and share price surged post acquisition. If you do your M&A right like the management of Hibiscus, you can add a lot of value to its shareholders.

Now let us look at the details of the acquisition. How much you pay for an acquisition and HOW you pay for an acquisition, determines how much value you create or destroy for your shareholders. You pay more, over the long term you decrease your eps and there is no incremental value to be derived from the acquisition. You pay less, over the long term you increase your eps and your shareholders are better off post acquisition than pre acquisition.

Transaction value is approximately USD215 million for 34 million barrels of 2p oil, equating to about USD6.30 per barrel of oil. Remember my explanation above that at USD65, the net profit margin of a barrel of oil should be USD15.5 after accounting for petroleum income tax. This is in comparison to other comparables lower than most other companies such as Enquest but I would not focus too much on this. Even though this is amongst the cheapest if not the cheapest amongst its comparables, it is only a mere valuation benchmark as it does not take into account the production costs and other factors for consideration, amongst others. Comparables are known to trade at 8-16 USD per barrel of oil.

Second, we look at the how is the purchase consideration to be satisfied. Out of 860 million ringgit of consideration to be paid upon completion of the acquisition, the sources of fund are as follows:
a) 200 million already raised from CRPS and available in Hibiscus trust account;
b) 200 mil in additional CRPS to be raised over the next 6 months;
c) borrowings of 200 mil from financial institutions to be sought; and
d) the rest from the working capital/dividend to be declared from the Repsol assets as at completion date.

Jojobaa's commentary is that the risk onward from Hibiscus is very minimal as a) 200 million has already been raised prior, and c) 200 million from the production of Repsol asset attributable to Hibiscus since 1 January 2021 (out of ebitda of 550 million projected for 2022) is already earmarked to fund this purchase consideration. Sure, there might be uncertainty over whether Hibiscus can raise 200 mil from additional CRPS placement, but let me remind everyone that Hibiscus raised 200 mil when oil price is 40-50USD. Now smart money will be on that Hibiscus will be able to raise the additional 200 mil USD when oil price is trading at its current level. The borrowings source of funding is a good move to have an optimized capital structure, as Hibiscus will have an estimated combined EBITDA of 1B ringgit and by going for RM200 mil of borrowings, the risk attached to the borrowings is very very minimal. One quarter of EBITDA can in theory pay off the borrowings, though that is just in theory.

Hibiscus is paying USD165 mil to buy an asset worth USD215 million. Based on an EBITDA generation of RM550 million, if oil price sustains well above USD60, Hibiscus would have almost paid back itself on the investment in 2022 and enjoy 5 more years of RM550 mil of ebitda annually. Coupled with its current EBITDA of 350 to 400 million ringgit, I do expect Hibiscus to generate close to RM1 billion of EBITDA in calendar year 2021 inclusive of the Repsol acquisition.

Again, Hibiscus's fate from this acquisition ties its own fate a lot to the Brent crude oil prices. If crude oil prices is stable throughout these few years, then Hibiscus would be making super profit and super cash flows in it. If Brent crude oil plunges to a level of say USD40 per barrel then Hibiscus would surely not be creating value from this acquisition. Hibiscus has shown that management has traditionally use M&A and is one of the few companies on Bursa to have a superb track record with M&A. My money's on them to use this exercise to transform them into a much bigger animal.
11/06/2021 1:58 PM
Investformilkmoney Thanks Jojobaa. Now in wish I have more to put in.
11/06/2021 2:40 PM
Rehan Thanks Jojobaa for detailed workout. This looks like a steal.

I think the only risk now is that of the Repsol deal not going through for some reason or the other. If Oil price keeps going up , Repsol itself may try to wriggle out using some excuse. Not sure whether is binding for both there parties. Not sure what conditional SPA means.

I think even without Repsol, Hibiscus deserves much higher value in the light of higher crude price.

Godofgambler BP saw the largest increase in profit in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same period of 2020, the agency’s calculations showed.

BP reported a profit attributable to shareholders of $4.7 billion in Q1 2021, compared to a loss of $4.4 billion for the first quarter of 2020. The supermajor resumed share buybacks this quarter after more than tripling its first-quarter earnings from a year ago on the back of rising oil prices and “exceptional gas marketing and trading performance.” BP reported underlying replacement cost profit—its proxy for net profit—of $2.63 billion, up from $791 million for the first quarter of last year and from just $115 million for the fourth quarter of 2020.

In terms of revenues, Anadolu Agency’s estimates show that combined revenues of the top ten oil firms increased by 6.6 percent annually to around $387 billion. Saudi Aramco’s revenues rose the most—by 20 percent to $80 billion.

The Saudi giant also reported a 30-percent jump in net income for the first quarter of the year to $21.7 billion.
