Q3 2021 average production of approximately 13,740 boepd was based on net field sales estimates, with September averaging approximately 18,985 boepd. Full-year 2021 net operating income is now forecast to be approximately $65.7m, and $119.1m. The company said the increased guidance is due to lower-than-expected base declines, the results of its reactivation programme and strong commodity prices.
Bear target Tern (TERN), which is yet to convince some maniacal bears of its fundamental credentials, said that it has managed to achieve significant business momentum, and this has continued across all of its principal portfolio companies in recent months. In addition to new customer wins and repeat orders, Device Authority has recently entered into further distribution partnerships, while Wyld Networks has continued to make further significant progress following its IPO on the NASDAQ First North Growth Market in Stockholm in July.
