Manager Outlook

 

§ The Investment Manager continues to believe that energy producers in low-cost basins with an oil-weighting will continue to outperform.

§ Industry fundamentals remain supportive given limited capital availability and reduced levels of North American drilling activity.

§ The REL portfolio is well positioned to reward investors as the market recovers.

§ On 8 August 2016, REL announced its first exit transaction, which is expected to generate a 2.1x Gross MOIC3 and 78 per cent. Gross IRR4.

Richard Hayden, Chairman of Riverstone Energy Limited, commented:

"REL continues to benefit from its disciplined build-up oriented strategy, with 16 investment platforms now actively pursuing proprietary opportunities. This is evidenced by today's results, which show ongoing NAV growth, and the Company's recent announcement of a successful exit at Rock Oil for over twice our cost base in spite of ongoing oil price volatility."

David M. Leuschen and Pierre F. Lapeyre Jr., Co-Founders of Riverstone, added:

"REL is now 77% invested and has deployed the majority of its capital since the oil price collapse in 2014. This has resulted in a Portfolio which is concentrated in premier, low-cost areas of hydrocarbon production, such as the Eagle Ford, Permian and Western Canada. Furthermore, the Portfolio continued to make strong operational progress in the past three months, with Meritage III bringing its midstream infrastructure online and drilling successes by several of our teams. As always, we continue to work closely with portfolio companies to manage risk, capitalise on new opportunities and position our investments for success in a variety of commodity price environments."

1 GBP:USD Fx rate of 1.326 as of 30 June 2016.

2 Based on total capital raised of $1,320 million and $41 million of realisations.

3 Gross MOIC is Multiple of Invested Capital before transaction costs, taxes, carried interest on gross profits, management fees and other expenses. Local taxes may apply at the jurisdictional level on profits arising in operating entity investments. Further withholding taxes may apply on distributions from such operating entity investments. Regarding this exit transaction, the Gross Multiple of 2.1x is reduced to a Net MOIC of 1.6x after taxes and carried interest on gross profit.

4 Gross IRR means an aggregate, annual, compound, gross internal rate of return on investments. Gross IRR does not reflect expenses to be borne by the relevant investment vehicle or its investors including, without limitation, carried interest on gross profits, management fees, taxes and organisational, partnership or transaction expenses. Regarding this exit transaction, the Gross IRR of 78 per cent. is reduced to a Net IRR of 43 per cent. after taxes and carried interest on gross profit.

5 Gross MOIC is Multiple of Invested Capital. Gross Unrealised Value and Gross MOIC are before transaction costs, taxes, carried interest on gross profits, management fees and other expenses. Given these costs and expenses are in aggregate expected to be considerable, Total Net Value and Net MOIC will be materially less than Gross Unrealised Value and Gross MOIC.  Local taxes may apply at the jurisdictional level on profits arising in operating entity investments. Further withholding taxes may apply on distributions from such operating entity investments.
