Should You Buy UKOG Shares?
Investors may see UK Oil & Gas’s revenue growth as a plus point, that is where the positives for the company end. Firstly the company has experienced a loss of £18 in its earnings before interest and tax (EBIT). This, along with the company’s other liabilities does not justify using so much debt. The balance sheet is certainly not positive although things could change with time.
Another eye-grabbing statistic is the fact that it lost £3.4 million in negative free cash flow over the past year. Several liabilities like this can be a major threat for investors and the company’s earning will influence how the balance sheet will hold up in the future.
