Last Few Years:

  • Great time to be an issuer of capital
  • Abundance of private equity, public equity, and cheap debt capital
  • Widely syndicated debt issuances with generous credit terms
  • New and less experienced investors/lenders
  • Active M&A market with increasing asset valuations


  • M&A and capital markets have dried up
  • Bank re-determinations putting pressure on corporate balance sheets
    • Borrowing Base reductions and overadvances coming due with little or no ability to refinance
    • Unappealing prospects of obtaining amendments from broad group of lenders with limited E&P experience
  • E&P companies forced to high grade projects and live within cash flow
  • Resource play economics largely depend on entry/acreage costs
  • Investors/Lenders presented with appealing risk/return opportunities in the high yield debt markets
