NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ernst C. Schlotter, a senior analyst with Zurich, Switzerland-based SISM Research and a four star analyst according to StarMine, has initiated coverage on Octagon 88 Resource, Inc. (OTCBB: OCTX) http://www.octagon-88.com in a nine-page report dated February 8, 2013, which includes an overview and asset valuation on its direct and indirect ownership in four different geological projects in Peace River, projects with different models for development.
“In a very short period of time, Octagon 88 Resources Inc. has built an impressive portfolio of conventional and unconventional leaseholds with intent to become a producing oil company soon. Octagon’s projects are multi-phase, scalable with projected lower capital costs, quicker timelines to production and as a direct result will benefit shareholders with a quicker return on capital invested. Projects include conventional light sweet oil developments with quick cash netbacks and unconventional long-term heavy oil assets with blue-sky potential of several billions of barrels exploration and developments. Our risk-adjusted appraised net worth is currently at $12.18 per share with additional significant upside potential when the planned development program is successfully executed.”
