NT NEWS | March 22nd, 2013
THE Government has sacked the entire board of Power and Water and replaced them with interim appointments.
As predicted by the NT News this morning, Andrew Macrides was today sacked as head of the troubled supplier of the NT's electricity.
The interim board members will be Gary Barnes, Jennifer Prince, Mike Burgess and Alastair Shields.
Treasurer Dave Tollner released the following statement announcing the sackings:
"We have asked Territorians to do some heavy lifting when it comes to Power and Water tariffs. Now we need to look at how Government and the Power and Water Corporation will do its bit to drive down costs.
"Changes are needed to increase efficiency and establish a commercially sustainable footing.
"Accountability is and should be transparent in all forms, PAWA is not an exception to the rule and the board removal is well overdue. "
"After examining various options, Cabinet has decided to make a number of important changes in relation to Power and Water Corporation’s governance and management.

"To start with, we have decided to refresh the Power and Water Corporation board, and to appoint a new managing director. These actions will materially assist implementation of necessary reforms within PWC.
"I can confirm the termination of appointments to the Power and Water Corporation Board and the appointment of a temporary Board.

I'm sure they'll put on a good show. Full of hope and promise and how "revolutionary" their product is. They may give you some unrealistic figures of how much $ their product will make. But don't believe it until you see it. That is, actually see the real figures in real earnings.
No veracity? You're obviously too lazy to look up the permits (as I have done and suggested to be done) and considered the reported BOE rates associated with each company's leases and wells. It substantiates as well as anything my conjecture...which is the best ANYONE can do when talking about the future of ANY stock...CONJECTURE. Of course one can always disagree with my conjecture, but that disagreement can only be based on CONJECTURE as well. I FIRMLY believe this stock will be 8$ or better by December, which I have consistently called. Do I KNOW this? Did any of us KNOW they were going to dilute shares when they did it? NO! Of course not...but based on what can be known, i.e. how much freaking OIL this company is recovering and selling at what price,; how many wells they plan to drill, etc. it seems REASONABLE to me to expect AT LEAST a multiple of 2 to the current revenue and profit levels which would put this stock at AT LEAST 8$ in 2 more quarters. If I'm wrong, it will only be a mistake of TIMEFRAME and not direction. That is, this stock price WILL climb, it's just a question of HOW FAR/HOW FAST!
