NBPE Announces Valuation Uplift Following IPO of Extraction Oil & Gas Inc.

13 October 2016

NBPE today announces the valuation impact of the initial public offering of its portfolio company Extraction Oil & Gas Inc ("Extraction") (NASDAQ: XOG) which occurred on 11 October 2016. Extraction is a U.S. based energy company focused on the exploration and production of oil and gas reserves in the Rocky Mountains.  NBPE initially invested in Extraction in May 2014 and made multiple follow on investments between June 2014 and April 2016. Prior to NBPE's initial investment, Extraction had been funded by a sophisticated private equity investor. As of 31 August 2016, Extraction (formerly referred to in NBPE's reporting as "Oil & Gas Company") was NBPE's largest equity investment by fair value, being held at a total valuation of $18.8 million. At the IPO price of $19 per share (above the estimated IPO price range of $15 - $18), NBPE's position was valued at approximately $31.5 million[1]. The valuation increase in this position will result in an uplift of $0.26 per share to NBPE's August monthly portfolio fair value. NBPE did not sell any shares as part of the initial public offering. On 12 October 2016, the closing share price of Extraction was $21.85 per share.

In NBPE's 30 September 2016 monthly report, which will be issued in the coming days, the IPO price for Extraction will be used to reflect its fair value as of 30 September 2016.
