About the transaction between Cathedral Energy and Valiant Energy

According to what the parties disclosed in a media release, post-closing, Cathedral’s Canadian business could operate over 30 jobs in Q3-2021; specifically in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. In fact, this basin equates to an estimated market share of current active jobs in Canada of more than 20%.

On the other hand, Valiant shared it currently has a 5-job capability. Besides, it has been consistently operating at high levels of utilization since inception.

This transaction also represents an opportunity for further margin expansion, the companies shared. Particularly “as Cathedral’s complimentary motor fleet replaces motor rentals on existing Valiant jobs.”

Notably, the principal owner of Valiant, Vaugn Spengler, entered into a long-term performance-based agreement. Accordingly, this deal could help Mr. Spengler remain with Cathedral; besides of letting him continue focusing on opportunities to support and expand the existing customer base.

Tom Connors, Cathedral President & CEO, commented on the acquisition announcement; “Valiant has constantly outperformed the market on a utilization basis.”
