#LNG Development 2.0 Could be Generational; Enterprise Group (TSX: $E.TO)


#LNG Development 2.0 Could be Generational; Enterprise Group (TSX: $E.TO)



July 19, 2018 - (Investorideas.com Newswire) The following article/commentary is released on Enterprise Group, Inc. (TSX: E)


Not long ago, in a land not far from here or there, the Canadian Resource sector took two near fatal mortar rounds to the chest. The first was the oil price decline that left the sector neutered in 2015 with many casualties. In the midst of that recovery, the jubilation for LNG exports to Asia – perceived saviour of the industry—was derailed as major partners went to ground.

One theory that might be more prudent this time is to put early investment dollars into equipment and infrastructure companies that are gearing up.

As a proxy for this growth, Enterprise Group (TSX: E), the premier industrial rental company in Western Canada comes into this burgeoning market aggressively and debt free: The Company appears to  be a substantial proxy and winner as several huge potential developments unfold in its target area. As well, the Company has significant access to funds for buying equipment, complementary companies or both. Enterprises history is to buy accretive assets, utilized them for several years to generate significant revenue and then sell at a profit.

As the LNG 2.0 growth commences, Enterprise is known as a one stop shop very well known by the industry as having exceptional equipment coupled with wide ranging custom solutions. Not to mention the plaudits it gained by working with clients to help in the downtimes. Not everything is about money.

And at C$0.45 trades at less than ½ book value of C$1.01.

Why Own Enterprise? Salient Points:

·        Refocus to grow the lucrative industrial/resource rental business
·        Cash flow positive since the beginning of 2015 downturn
·        Profitable trend seems intact last three quarters
·        Trades at less than half book value (C$1.01)
·        Development of StarChain, a revolutionary monitoring and asset management software
·        15 proprietary patents for specialized equipment and processes
·        Cost effective custom solutions
·        Significant acquisition and capital expenditure
·        Significant domestic growth plans


Third Time the Charm



Due to the vagaries of the sector, these products and services are always needed. If it all comes together at once—LNG Canada commences and oil stays reasonable the renaissance of multiple sectors is or could soon be apparent.

"If you think back three, four years ago when we all had LNG euphoria, that there was a slew of projects ahead of us, we certainly didn't see any boxes being ticked to the same degree that they are today," stated Horizon North Logistics Inc. (HNL:TSX ) Chief Financial Officer Scott Matson. "Our view internally is that the flag in the ground was Petronas buying in. We have a hard time believing they would spend an ounce of time, energy or a dollar unless they had a clean line of sight to the project moving ahead."

LNG Canada is a joint venture between Royal Dutch Shell Plc,  PetroChina Co. Ltd, Mitsubishi Corp and Korea Gas Corp. TransCanada Corp will build the pipeline.

The Centre of the Universe?

In St. Albert near Edmonton Alberta, there were several reasons the Enterprise C-Suite team worked to save, expand and grow Enterprise Group.  During the almost fatal resource decline mid-decade, one main reason was the new prospect of the significant resurgence of massive LNG spending.

The reasons for this renewed activity years on --after Pacific Northwest LNG populated mainly by Malaysia's Petronas cancelled participation in 2017. Always watch the left hand as in a feat of corporate legerdemain it is now a major partner in the phoenix-like reanimation of LNG Canada. The workforce will not be a vast majority of TFW (temporary foreign workers) which was a major plank of the previous plan, but the vast majority (approximately 95%) Canadian.

" The potential for the development of LNG to announce and go ahead in the fall is roughly an 8 out of 10," stated Des O'Kell SVP of Enterprise. " Related activity is  apparent from Kitimat to Fort St. John; negotiations with First Nations, equipment plans and office leasing. All of this is against a backdrop of high condensate prices to make the bitumen flow effectively. The reality is that early exposure to this development trend is key; with an eye to commodity prices. Opening a valve to Asia would very simply provide massive growth of Canada's energy exports."

To give some perspective, Alberta's Black Diamond (BDI: TSX) announced to a contingent $42.5 million camp contract in concert with indigenous partnerships. The landscape is getting thicker with a growing list of monies to be spent and plans to be executed. Houston-based Civeo Corp  (NYSE: CVEO) has already been awarded conditional contracts for a 440-bed permanent facility at Kitimat and a 4,500-bed temporary camp for the export terminal construction phase.

Kitimat’s Haisla Nation has made its support apparent through a letter to the NDP from Chief Councillor Crystal Smith:

Unlike others who think the answer is simply ‘no’ to development, we believe in balance between the economy and the environment. Projects can be built right. A project like LNG Canada provides the right balance for us, being a potential major employer and the lowest CO2 emitting LNG facility in the world. We’ve spent more than a decade speaking with LNG proponents to emphasize what’s important to us in our communities and we’ve enjoyed the debate which has led us to today.”
BC Opposition is also onside. Former BC Liberal LNG Minister Rich Coleman stated; "It would get a product we have a huge amount of, we have a 150-year supply of natural gas and would allow us to ship it to China and other countries. Shipping to China would help with climate issues and everything else."

LNG has much going for it, not the least of which, along with massive supplies is, no apology to Trump, the natural replacement for coal. It's also important to realize the Trump factor which seems that he could do something ridiculous that could help or hurt the resource sector. He could do nothing with the same result. There will be no in between.

From the Financial Post: "Those LNG markets are turning around, says Shell's 2018 LNG outlook. It found the market has defied expectations, growing by 29 million tonnes in 2017."Based on current demand projections, Shell sees a potential for a supply shortage developing in the mid-2020s, unless new LNG production project commitments are made soon."



So, what do we get? We unlock a giant-killing amount of Nat gas, open up LNG markets to lessen dependence on the US. As well as essential jobs created for decades and the prospect of further projects. Considerable interaction with First Nations as substantive partners. Get bitumen flowing to markets. This situation is not merely some ‘nice little resource deal.' It is an entirely and possibly multi-generational expansion that, until alternatives come online, provides a viable and cleaner source of power that of coal, oil, etc.

After the last two go-arounds this decade, trepidation would likely be an apt description. But as any risk-taking investor will tell you; Fortune Favors the Bold and merde happens.

Faites vos jeux, mes amis.

@EnterpriseGrp (TSX: $E.TO) Enterprise Group #Acquisition Strategy

@EnterpriseGrp  (TSX: $E.TO) Enterprise Group #Acquisition Strategy













June 14, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Energy and infrastructure commentary on Enterprise Group, Inc. (TSX: E)

Read this in full at http://www.investorideas.com/CO/TSXE/news/2018/06141AcquisitionStrategy.asp

If one had purchased shares in Enterprise Group (E: TSX) on or prior to the first stock market trading day in 2018 (as you have/had been told multiple times for months), you would have beaten virtually every global index. The price has more than doubled YTD 2018. Think not? Morningstar agrees. Interesting to note also that YTD, not one of the Global ETF's at Morningstar in the Infrastructure sector has shown any positive return.

How Come? Management.
YTD, Enterprise management retired all remaining corporate debt, focused on the fast-growing industrial resource rental equipment market and has $40 million in bank lines for accretive acquisitions. With a share price under C$0.60, which as noted has doubled year to date, growth potential appears stable as the book value recently rose from C$0.85 to C$1.01.

Given the many savvy management moves made year to date, the current Enterprise share price could represent the harbinger to significant future growth.

“As we move through 2018-19, Enterprise’s three successful subsidiaries constitute even more of a role in our growth,” stated Desmond O’Kell, SVP of Enterprise. “Reviewing potential acquisitions, we have a solid mandate to integrate any additions to our structure to provide an immediate benefit to shareholders. Our acquisition and sale history (below) has been both strategic and extremely profitable. Management looks forward to taking the Enterprise Group  to the next level. And beyond.”

TC Backhoe was sold in 2016 for approximately C$20 million. The Company was purchased in 2007 for C$12 million and generated $150 million.

Calgary Tunnelling acquired in June 2013 for $12.0 million generated approximately $60 million in profitable revenue to Enterprise. Gross proceeds of the 2018 sales transaction were $20.6 million.

The last four years are the culmination of two cycles. First, it heralds that the Company is ready and capable of exceptional growth as it enters this new phase with a clean balance sheet. Second, it proves that the planning, execution as well as pain and suffering experience since June 2014 has been extremely constructive.

Renting with Hart
If one is building a mining or oil business Hartoil rents customized equipment for project sites, drilling & completions and facilities that require mobile infrastructure. 

Hart currently has 6 locations are strategically located throughout west central and northern Alberta and northeastern British Columbia. These 6 locations have allowed Hart to establish six complementary "service circles" that slightly overlap and enable Hart to deliver oilfield site set-up services and equipment rentals efficiently to its customers. Plus, the ability to respond quickly to requests for service or repairs to its equipment.

“ Our large competitive advantage is the ability to what we refer to as ‘combo technology’," states Joel Bardwell, Senior Manager at Hart. "Whether on a skid or one of our exclusive portable trailers, we can deliver not only the equipment required but customize it to be the most cost-effective. Hart and by extension Enterprise, have developed a reputation as a ‘one-stop shop,' which puts the exceptional quality of equipment and service against those looking to save a slight bit of cost."

As commodities rise, there is a commensurate rise in both business and incoming inquiries for services like Hart. Like the other subs, Hart gained props for working with clients in pricing and advice during the downturn. Hence, they are seeing old clients returning and new clients coming on board.

When asked what types of acquisitions he’d like to see, Bardwell stated that they be complementary and further add to Hart et al. 's vast and diverse equipment base.

ArticTherm: Heat without Fire.
Flameless heat seems a contradiction, but it has been an excellent business for ArticTherm and parent Enterprise.  Artic Therm provides an efficient Flameless Heat and Green Air technology for multiple applications utilizing some or all of its 150-portable units at remote locations to deal with extreme climate challenges. All pipeline to be buried must be dry and covered with a special coating to ensure against corrosion. The trick, particularly in -30 Celsius degree temps, is to dry out and repair dings in the surface, known as ‘jeeps.'


Bill Roddick, Project Manager for Arctic Therm, has seen more than a 50 percent increase in incoming inquiries for both rentals and project work. The latter is for large pipeline deals where the heating may take several weeks and must have a corporate operator to utilize the specialized equipment for a myriad of reasons, including; repair, pre-expansion or drying.

A growing trend is for large oil and gas companies to bury four pipelines (lines) in one trench. Previously several trenches were needed and as a result were way less cost-effective. Roddick is also constructive about the Enterprise’s STAR software development and believes customers will embrace the efficiency it brings as equipment can be tracked precisely in real time.

Solid plans can be made as material comes off one job and on to another. If one of any asset equipped with the STAR technology needs attention while out in the field, there is a good chance the originating company will know and could deal with it before the customer even knows there is an issue.

Trust in Westar
Westar Oil Field Rentals General Manager George Bergen is all about customer service. Mid 2017-mid 2018 was a good year. Westar is a highly-regarded full-service oilfield site and infrastructure company that fulfills multiple equipment rental needs for a variety of Oil & Gas customers, and it is currently operating a large fleet (400) of unique and specialized equipment.

Westar has innovated many solutions and tailored its equipment and service around the specific needs and requirements of their blue-chip client base. Westar is an employee and safety driven organization, encouraging personal growth and a team-building atmosphere.

Bergen is expecting another strong year as Trans Canada Pipeline is engaged in several large projects. The 1000-pound (or 453.59237k) gorilla for the entire industry is the Q3 2018 announcement of the commencement of Shell’s LNG plant. The industry is optimistic the project will go ahead.

Westar regularly secures contracts from large and small clients. Due to its reputation and business practices the Company may well not be the lowest bid.

The following consolidated chart shows that growth is strong, and profitability has been in place for the last three quarters. The Company has been cash flow positive every quarter since the downturn began in 2015.


Enterprise management has a straightforward acquisition strategy; buy excellent and synergistic companies with excellent management and give them the ability to grow. Management is all on the same page and would like to see accretive, complementary acquisitions to expand the group and continue to grow shareholder value.

Enterprise and its subsidiaries are the solid indicators that consistent and savvy win the race. And will likely continue.

So far, so good.

STARCHAIN , being developed exclusively by Enterprise Group (TSX: $E.TO ) is the only product that will track, diagnose, and effect meaningful costs savings in the #resource industry


STARCHAIN , being developed exclusively by Enterprise Group (TSX: $E.TO ) is the only product that will track, diagnose, and effect meaningful costs savings in the #resource industry

 


May 31, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Commentary on Enterprise Group (TSX:E)- A 10 inch by 10 inch by 4-inch electronic module dubbed STARCHAIN is to GPS what a CGI movie is to tintype.
STARCHAIN is being developed exclusively by Enterprise Group (TSX:E) and falls squarely into the IoT service genre. While there are similar products in other sectors, STARCHAIN is the only product that will track, diagnose, and effect meaningful costs savings in the resource industry for Enterprise and its lease/rental customers. As well it will provide much useful data back to STARCHAIN allowing it the ability to scale up continuously.   
Particularly for Enterprise, which rents or leases 100's of pieces of expensive industrial equipment to far-flung areas and  winters that are almost otherworldly, weatherproof the units. STARCHAIN modules replace simple GPS units in two ways: First, it negates the monthly cost of each GPS unit saving thousands of dollars. Second, data access, unlike a straight GPS unit, provides unlimited data critical to its R&D.



Eventually STARCHAIN will evolve into a neural network to impact the most cost-effective client equipment decisions.
“While some might be satisfied with STARCHAIN in its current form, we see it as a base platform for future development utilizing collected data,” stated Desmond O’Kell SVP of Enterprise. “If a piece of equipment fails or experiences a mechanical deficiency on a remote project site, STARCHAIN alerts Enterprise and the fleet manager immediately so that a repair can be effected, or a replacement can be deployed, which in turn raises revenues, efficiency and asset life.”
The STARCHAIN ‘plug and play’ modules also include an accelerometer which can measure movement from the smallest vibration to a catastrophic failure. A real-world example in a moment. Equipment is built with an obsolence factor. Therefore, when a company rents heavy equipment to a myriad of users and weather conditions, it is not just smart business but critical to ensuring the maximum asset life for revenue generation. Followed of course by the ultimate sale at a premium price.


Asset Control = More Revenue, Longer Life
Enterprise has more than 200 industrial light towers that it rents to customers. Currently, once it leaves the yard, the Company has only a 3rd party GPS tracker on it. The onus is on the client to report any issues. In the past maybe 1, 2 or 3 lights would fail before they would indicate. With STARCHAIN, Enterprise will know when the first bulb blows and can send a repair. It can also check the other bulbs and help ensure they aren’t at their lives end. The customer is happy, revenue increases due to the repair and the light tower (and lamps) are kept in good long-term re-rentable condition.
As well, the module can STARCHAIN schedule on/off times, brightness, number of bulbs on to ensure cost-effectiveness, and again, produce less stress on the asset. Extrapolate that technology onto trucks, dozers, drilling equipment, and the benefits are many and profound; primarily asset life, increasing revenue and margin increases.
Putting a value on STARCHAIN is difficult. While it is included in Enterprise’s total asset value of just over $1.00 a share (shares trading at $0.57), it is a minor balance sheet contributor. STARCHAIN will be a growth entity on its own as it evolves as well as giving Enterprise a continuous and humongous competitive advantage.
Enterprise's technology development group is currently performing infield testing with success. Management expects to offer its customers specialized equipment capable of several remote controllable features in Q3-Q4 of 2018.
Oh yes, There's Lots More.





From CNN:
The downward pressure on oil continued on Monday (May 28/18) as traders considered data showing a jump in the number of US oil rigs, indicating potential growth in US production. US crude production has increased by about 25% since mid-2016 as producers look to capitalize on rising prices. Oilfield services firm Baker Hughes (BHGE: NYSE) released data on Friday showing the rig count in North America hit its highest level of the year last week. The current global rig count now stands above the average set in 2017.
In 2014-15, the oil price collapsed, and Enterprise got nailed hard but pretty much as collateral damage. Through savvy and bold decision taking, the Company remained cashflow positive throughout the decline and returned to profitably last year.
While many companies were simply worried about survival following the downturn, Enterprise paid down $54 million of debt, streamlined operations and came out of the debacle stronger and debt-free.
Bottom Line




As oil climbs (and yes, it will remain volatile) investors can participate in a company that is so much more than when it traded at $3.50 pre-decline. The Enterprise share price has doubled YTD. With the STARCHAIN tech development Enterprise could well morph into the industrial and perhaps national industrial rental firm of choice. The proprietary technology is already moving toward becoming a leader in the fields of logistics, deployment efficiency and even AI in the resource and infrastructure realm.
Also, there are the further investor enticements such as no debt, a significant acquisition chest, lean corporate structure and aggressive and effective management.
Also, it is TSX listed.
So, you are waiting for for...?

Enterprise Group (TSX: $E.TO): The Leader in Industrial Leasing. Next, Technology


 Enterprise Group (TSX: $E.TO): The Leader in Industrial Leasing. Next, Technology




May 30, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) The following commentary on Enterprise Group (TSX:E) is released today.
A 10 inch by 10 inches by 4-inch electronic module dubbed STARCHAIN is to GPS what a CGI movie is to tintype.
STARCHAIN (TSX:E) and falls squarely into the IoT service genre. While there are similar products in other sectors, STARCHAIN is the only product that will track, diagnose, and effect meaningful costs savings in the resource industry for Enterprise and its lease/rental customers. As well as it will provide useful data back to STARCHAIN allowing it the ability to scale up continuously.
Particularly for Enterprise, which rents or leases 100's of pieces of expensive industrial equipment to far-flung areas and winters that are almost otherworldly, weatherproof the units. STARCHAIN modules replace simple GPS units in two ways: First, it negates the monthly cost of each GPS unit saving thousands of dollars. Second, data access, unlike a straight GPS unit, provides unlimited data critical to its R&D.


Eventually STARCHAIN will evolve into a neural network to impact the most cost-effective client equipment decisions.
“While some might be satisfied with STARCHAIN in its current form, we see it as a base platform for future development utilizing collected data,” stated Desmond O’Kell SVP of Enterprise. “If a piece of equipment fails or experiences a mechanical deficiency on a remote project site, STARCHAIN alerts Enterprise and the fleet manager immediately so that a repair can be effected, or a replacement can be deployed, which in turn raises revenues, efficiency and asset life.”
The STARCHAIN ‘plug and play’ modules also include an accelerometer which can measure movement from the smallest vibration to a catastrophic failure. A real-world example in a moment. Equipment is built with an obsolence factor. Therefore, when a company rents heavy equipment to a myriad of users and weather conditions, it is not just smart business but critical to ensuring the maximum asset life for revenue generation. Followed of course by the ultimate sale at a premium price.


Asset Control = More Revenue, Longer Life
Enterprise has more than 200 industrial light towers that it rents to customers. Currently, once it leaves the yard, the Company has only a 3rd party GPS tracker on it. The onus is on the client to report any issues. In the past maybe 1, 2 or 3 lights would fail before they would indicate. With STARCHAIN, Enterprise will know when the first bulb blows and can send a repair. It can also check the other bulbs and help ensure they aren’t at their lives end. The customer is happy, revenue increases due to the repair and the light tower (and lamps) are kept in good long-term re-rentable condition.
As well, the module can STARCHAIN schedule on/off times, brightness, number of bulbs on to ensure cost-effectiveness, and again, produce less stress on the asset. Extrapolate that technology onto trucks, dozers, drilling equipment, and the benefits are many and profound; primarily asset life, increasing revenue and margin increases.
Putting a value on STARCHAIN is difficult. While it is included in Enterprise’s total asset value of just over $1.00 a share (shares trading at $0.57), it is a minor balance sheet contributor. STARCHAIN will be a growth entity on its own as it evolves as well as giving Enterprise a continuous and humongous competitive advantage.
Enterprise's technology development group is currently performing infield testing with success. Management expects to offer its customers specialized equipment capable of several remote controllable features in Q3-Q4 of 2018.
Oh yes, There's Lots More.





From CNN:
The downward pressure on oil continued on Monday (May 28/18) as traders considered data showing a jump in the number of US oil rigs, indicating potential growth in US production. US crude production has increased by about 25% since mid-2016 as producers look to capitalize on rising prices. Oilfield services firm Baker Hughes (BHGE: NYSE) released data on Friday showing the rig count in North America hit its highest level of the year last week. The current global rig count now stands above the average set in 2017.
In 2014-15, the oil price collapsed, and Enterprise got nailed hard but pretty much as collateral damage. Through savvy and bold decision taking, the Company remained cashflow positive throughout the decline and returned to profitably last year.
While many companies were simply worried about survival following the downturn, Enterprise paid down $54 million of debt, streamlined operations and came out of the debacle stronger and debt-free.
Bottom Line




As oil climbs (and yes, it will remain volatile) investors can participate in a company that is so much more than when it traded at $3.50 pre-decline. The Enterprise share price has doubled YTD. With the STARCHAIN tech development Enterprise could well morph into the industrial and perhaps national industrial rental firm of choice. The proprietary technology is already moving toward becoming a leader in the fields of logistics, deployment efficiency and even AI in the resource and infrastructure realm.
Also, there are the further investor enticements such as no debt, a significant acquisition chest, lean corporate structure and aggressive and effective management.
Also, it is TSX listed.
So, you are waiting for for...?
