Stout performed a detailed valuation analysis using various valuation methodologies specific to the oil & gas industry related to a large acquisition of oil & gas assets in the Permian Basin in West Texas by a publicly traded oil & gas exploration & production company. The transaction involved producing oil & gas reserves, as well as undeveloped acreage in one of the most prolific oil & gas basins globally.
We were hired by the buyer of the oil & gas assets (a publicly traded oil & gas exploration & production company) to value the acquired assets for financial reporting purposes in SEC filings.
The buyer used our valuation to allocate the multi-billion dollar value of the aggregate transaction across the different categories of oil & gas reserves. The company’s auditor relied on our valuation in performing their audit procedures related to the company’s annual report filing.
