PILGRIM PETROLEUM COM STK USD1 (OTCMKTS:PGPM) has a current market cap value of $2.07M and might be due for a jump, (if/when the caveat emptor sign can be lifted from its name). Why?
The company claims it has $48.8 million in investments, while stating it has only $7.2 million in total liabilities. If that is truly the case its impressive for a stock of this nature. This is all well and good but, the skull and crossbones symbol is still next to their name on the OTC. The caveat emptor sign may be removed soon, but the stock is currently sliding.
PILGRIM PETROLEUM COM STK USD1 (OTCMKTS:PGPM) bills itself as an oil and gas exploration and development (E&D) company acquiring, developing, and operating oil and gas properties with proven reserves in the US.
According to company materials, they “Focus in proven fields exploited by well managed independent oil companies extracting reserves at lower risk and lower cost than unproved prospects, provides services to 3rd party operators and partners in the areas of Consulting, Development, Aviation Services, and Enhanced Oil Recovery. Our parent is Pilgrim Petroleum PLC, a private own company, focus in domestic and international areas where major oil and gas producing companies have reduced their exploration efforts in search of larger reserves.”
On April 27, 2017, the company released that it would proceed with its reorganization plans including filing of all disclosures required by OTC Markets, FINRA and SEC. Additionally, the CEO sent a letter to shareholders in May stating the company’s objectives for the future. Most likely, those press releases kicked up the share price on this Delaware-based corporation.
