For the purposes of this financial statement analysis and valuation report, I have selected two companies; Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc., referenced as ‘MAIN company’, and Key Energy Services, Inc., referenced as ‘BENCHMARK’ company. Both companies operate within the Oil and Gas Services industry.

Throughout my research I found a major event that significantly affected the financials of the companies I previously listed. On October 24, 2016, BENCHMARK company and certain domestic subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for reorganization under the United State Bankruptcy Code, pursuant to a prepackaged plan of reorganization.

By completing this financial statement analysis and valuation report I have come to a recommendation regarding how a current investor should handle their Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc. stock. In my opinion, the stock price listed on 12/31/2018 of $6.14 is undervalued. Therefore, I would recommend the investor to buy stock in Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc., ticker symbol HLX.
