Dan Roller of Maran Capital Management presented his in-depth investment thesis on Ranger Energy Services (US: RNGR) at Best Ideas 2020.

Thesis summary:

Ranger Energy Services is an off-the-beaten-path US energy services company trading at a cheap price. It is in an out-of-favor sector, illiquid, small cap, and a “broken” IPO, yet has high insider ownership (60+%), is well run, taking share, gushing cash, and buying back stock.

Against its ~$100 million market cap and ~$40 million of debt, the company should generate ~$50 million of EBITDA and ~$35 million of FCF, putting the valuation at less than 3x EBITDA and over a 33% FCF yield to the equity; it also trades at ~0.5x tangible book. This is for a company that is taking share given its new, best-in-class equipment and strong financial position (many competitors have aging rigs and too much debt).

In the past few quarters, Ranger has won new multi-year contracts with oil majors such as Chevron and Conoco. Dan believes the upside is 100% to several hundred percent under various scenarios, and that risk of permanent capital loss is limited.
