Report summary

The year 2017 will be a watershed for Cairn, with the expected start-up of two North Sea projects delivering the company’s first production since 2011. Cash on the balance sheet has funded activity over recent years, but new cash flow will support reinvestment in new growth opportunities. But despite the positive outlook, Cairn trades at one the largest discounts in our corporate coverage. In this report we analyse Cairn’s portfolio and consider investor concerns.
