OSP.PR.A Seeks To Reassure Investors

Brompton Funds has announced:

Investors and investment advisors are invited to listen to a February 2016 recorded update hosted by Portfolio Managers Laura Lau and Michael Clare on Brompton Oil Split Corp. (the “Company”). The Portfolio Managers discuss the Company’s portfolio and the Energy Sector. A link to the presentation recorded on February 23, 2016 has been posted to the Brompton Funds website.
Class A Shares and Preferred Shares of the Company are available for purchase on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the ticker symbols OSP & OSP.PR.A, respectively.
The Company invests in a portfolio (the “Portfolio”) of equity securities of at least 15 large capitalization North American oil and gas issuers selected by the manager from the S&P 500 Index and the S&P/TSX Composite Index, giving consideration to, among other metrics, attractive valuation, growth prospects, profitability, liquidity, sustainability of dividends and a strong balance sheet. The Portfolio is focused primarily on oil and gas issuers that have significant exposure to oil, and includes equities of the following oil and gas issuers:

Apache Corp. Cimarex Energy Co. Pioneer Natural Resources Co.
ARC Resources Ltd. EOG Resources Inc. PrairieSky Royalty Ltd.
Cenovus Energy Inc. Imperial Oil Ltd. Suncor Energy Inc.
ConocoPhillips Keyera Corp. Vermilion Energy Inc.
Crescent Point Energy Corp. Occidental Petroleum Corporation Exxon Mobil Corporation
Chevron Corporation  

Clearly, when you’ve got a name like “Oil Split Corp.” in this market, your investors are going to want a lot of reassurance!

The presentation slides are available, as is an audio-visual presentation using the same slides, which is pretty cool.

I also note that Brompton has produced a Preferred Shares Primer, which includes the following chart:
