Valuation of Permian-based E&P Incentive Units for Tax Purposes

October 2021

TOP prepared a valuation analysis to estimate the fair market value of certain incentive units related to a Permian-based exploration and production company. The oil and gas interests were primarily located in the Delaware basin and contributed to a total enterprise value of approximately $150.0 million. Our analysis included the valuation of the company’s reserves, the allocation of the company’s equity value to its various equity classes using a Monte Carlo simulation analysis, and a comprehensive discounts study. The company used our fair market value estimates as the basis for an IRC Section 83(b) election related to certain equity/incentive unit grants.
