KUALA LUMPUR : Maybank IB Research is reviewing its


earnings forecast for Bumi Armada Bhd following the surprising
cancellation of its floating production storage and offloading
(FPSO) contract in the Balnaves field in northwestern Australia.
In a note today, the research house said that the contract was
worth USD593mil on a 4+4 years charter.
Based on our preliminary assessment, which is based on
limited information, this news is a major setback to Bumi

Armada's operations and financials. Typically, when an FPSO contract is terminated midway,
our understanding is that the the FPSO operator would be compensated accordingly based on
the legal contractual framework, it explained.
In a filing to the exchange on Mar 4, Bumi Armada announced that it had received a notice of
termination from Woodside Energy Julimar Pte Ltd in relation to the charter of the Armada
Claire FPSO vessel which has been operating since the Balnaves field delivered first oil in Aug
2014.
On the other hand, the oil and gas firm added in its filing that the purported notice of
termination is not valid. It also intends to fully enforce its rights under the contract, which may
include the initiation of legal proceedings against Woodside.

The cancellation will bring a negative knee-jerk reaction on Bumi Armada's stock, and the
matter is unlikely to be resolved anytime soon, said Maybank IB.
Shares of the company fell steeply in early trading today. The stock hit an intraday low of 75
sen before staging a rebound.
As at 11AM, the stock was last traded at 83 sen. It closed at RM1 on Mar 4.
Pending a review of Bumi Armada's contract situation, Maybank IB currently has a 'buy' call for
the stock with a target price of RM1.45.
