J P Morgan Chase & Co analysts commented, "JPM View: After facing stiff headwinds in the commodity price collapse given its stretched balance sheet, management has not stood still and has continued to make progress in adapting its business model to the reality of lower commodity prices. In addition to repurchasing its debt at significant discounts to par, management has added hedges and announced a nifty sliding scale royalty agreement with its landowner (University Lands) that will support a return to activity in its Wolfcamp play, with a 1 rig program. On the other hand, EPE has dropped its lone Eagle Ford (EF) rig, with plans to work-off its 42 well DUC inventory in the EF for the time being. We have updated our model to incorporate 2Q16 actuals and updated guidance, including the impact of the new sliding scale royalty regime in the Permian Basin." (8/15/2016)
