All three events were rather positive in our view as the company hit guidance despite tough weather during 1Q14, the long-awaited first production was achieved in Canada, and additional liquidity was granted on the credit facility. “These positive moves signify a strong start to 2014 for Gulfport that we believe is a sign of even bigger and better things to come as the company looks to ramp production dramatically in 2014. Gulfport remains a Best Idea given its best-in-class assets, multiple value-creating potential non-core monetizations and improving operational/planning execution.”
