“Executive Chairman Dan Brostrom: “After our IPO, many investors approached us to buy more shares in Rex International. As the IPO share allotment had not been fully taken up, we decided on a placement at 75.5 cents, 51% higher than our 50-cent IPO price. With the additional monies, we can participate in opportunities that arose after the IPO…”

““We intend to have 5 to 7 offshore drilling campaigns next year,” said Mr Brostrom. This could mean a phenomenal FY2015 performance for Rex International when oilwell sale proceeds roll in. This rate of drilling campaigns is unprecedented among its E&P peers, and is possible only with Rex International’s unique business model.”

“”Four months after listing, we have already grown our portfolio to 15 concessions, beating our target. We have spudded Oman according to schedule. With the added proceeds from our recent placement, we are well capitalised for our expansion plans and for our upcoming drilling campaigns,” added Mr Brostrom.”

23 Nov, NextInsight: DBS Vickers highlights catalysts for stock price of Rex International

Maintain BUY for 85% upside potential. Our TP for Rex is adjusted down to S$1.15, as we factor in a bigger share base arising from the recent share placement, as well as consideration shares issued to fund the acquisition of the Rexonic stake and an additional stake in Rex Caribbean. However, we believe the story for Rex remains intact, as highlighted above, and the recent sell down thus presents a good buying opportunity. “
