We focus entirely on upstream development in the Rocky Mountain region of the American West.
Zephyr’s public listing allows outside investors to benefit from the experience and technology created by our management – our public investors sit alongside our team as we seek to acquire quality assets in the distressed US marketplace. Over the longer term, investors will also have the chance to benefit from the significant upside offered by our legacy Paradox Basin appraisal assets, as well as from a $15 million tax loss asset which can make the Group’s acquisition efforts all the more optimal.
To meet our goal of building a sustainable business that consistently returns cash to shareholders, we manage cost exceptionally closely and abstain from the use of significant leverage. Our acquisitions will be measured by their impact on corporate cash flow, rather than misleading metrics such as well level IRRs and production volumes.
We also seek to leverage partnerships with significantly larger public and private entities, such as the US Department of Energy and private institutional co-investors, in order to maximize our corporate growth with a minimum of dilution for our shareholders.
In addition to being responsible stewards of our shareholders capital, we seek to be responsible stewards of the environment around us – we put an ESG focus at the core of our activities.
