Prospera Energy: Small-cap Worth a BIG BET (Investment Thesis Overview)

Mining Stock Education · Prospera Energy: Small-cap Worth a BIG BET (Investment Thesis Overview)

Bill Powers (Mining Stock Education) and Shubham Garg (White Tundra Investments) each placed big bets on Prospera Energy (TSX.V: PEI, OTC: GXRFF, FRA: OF6B). They did so independently of each other but come together in this show to share why they are bullish on the company. Neither Bill nor Shubham has received compensation from Prospera. Both are investors in the company. Shubham will be a strategic partner for both engineering support and business development initiatives moving forward.

Listen to CEO Samuel David and VP Finance Chris Ludtke explain Prospera Energy’s investment thesis in this episode. For the past two years Prospera has been in restructuring as legacy debts and non-compliances have been largely resolved. During this period, the team has grown production from 80 bpd to 1,250 boepd and reduced production costs from C$60/barrel to under C$40/barrel. They believe that in the next 2-3 years they can reduce production costs to possibly under C$20/barrel and achieve 10,000+ boepd by optimizing current assets and through strategic acquisitions. The company has about 400 million barrels of oil in place. And Prospera’s core assets in Saskatchewan and Alberta had previously, during peak oil times when they were being fully developed by multinational oil companies, already saw production of over 10,000 boepd. The company has the facilities to accommodate over 10,000 boepd.
