Kosmos Energy corporate - reported results analysis

Report summary

Kosmos reported an earnings loss of US$56 million for the fourth quarter of 2016. Despite an increase in revenues, earnings were hit by higher costs and exploration expenses.  But Kosmos is turning the corner and positive signs in the underlying business are beginning to emerge. Net debt decreased by 8% to US$1.1 billion and gearing fell below 50%. The company is now well positioned to focus on progressing a high-impact exploration campaign, which is targeting close to 5 billion boe of un-risked resources.
