HNRC INTENDS TO BE DEBT FREE AND ACQUIRE INCOME PRODUCING ASSETS
HOUSTON, Jan. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Houston Natural Resources Corp. (OTC: HNRC) (“HNR or the Company”) announced today it has a strong balance sheet to continue its aggressive growth in 2022 and intends to become debt free.
The company has a current debt- to-equity ratio of less than 2% with current liabilities less than $1,300,000 including less than $700,000 in Notes payable.
The oil industry has about a 40% debt-to-capital threshold. Above that level, debt costs increase considerably. The company has been able to use its low debt ratio to acquire equipment and is now well positioned to make future acquisitions.
According to Investopedia… “Investors in the oil and gas industry should keep an eye on the debt levels on the balance sheet. It is such a capital-intensive industry that high levels of debt can put a strain on a company’s credit ratings, weakening its ability to purchase new equipment or finance other capital projects. Poor credit ratings can also harm its ability to acquire new businesses.”
In addition, Investopedia states… “Debt, when used properly, can increase shareholder returns. Having too much debt, however, leaves firms vulnerable to economic downturns and interest rate hikes. Too much debt can also increase the perceived risk with the business and discourage investors from investing more capital.”
The Company’s net asset value is $4.00 per share for the period ending September 30, 2021.
According to industry research, the S&P 500 Integrated Oil & Gas Index, forward earnings, & valuation between 8x and 14x forward earnings. This would imply a target value for HNRC of between $6.00 per share and $10.00 per share based on its projected earnings.

The company is also looking at waste-to-energy (“WTE”) opportunities which is the process of generating energy in the form of electricity and/or heat from the primary treatment of waste, or the processing of waste into a fuel source. WTE is a form of energy recovery.
