BrandExtract Positions SilverBow Resources for IPO

June 23, 2017

BrandExtract led the charge for Swift Energy, a leading independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company headquartered in Houston, TX, becoming SilverBow Resources in time for their IPO on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on May 5.

Swift Energy becomes SilverBow Resources

The company was under new leadership after overcoming several challenges throughout the industry downturn. Because of this, and other factors, Swift Energy wanted to remarket under a new name and renewed focus. “Swift wanted to capitalize on the renewed vision of the company while differentiating from close competitors,” said BrandExtract Chairman, Jonathan Fisher.

BrandExtract collaborated with key members of Swift Energy’s executive team to rebrand themselves as SilverBow Resources. The BrandExtract team built a new identity supported by strategic messaging that reflected SilverBow’s experience, precision and vision for the organization. The new brand was designed to reflect SilverBow’s targeted, precise results for their customers.

“SilverBow’s new look and feel will help them achieve their business goals and overall vision for the company’s new direction,” says Fisher. “The new brand helps reinforce their shareholders to invest in them, partner with them and join the company.” SilverBow also believes the brand refresh will help benefit the move to the NYSE and provide more visibility among the investor community and allow them to increase shareholder value.

“The past 12 months have been transformational for the company, and we wanted to position ourselves for continuous growth and become a pure play Eagle Ford Shale focused operator,” said Sean Woolverton, CEO of SilverBow Resources. “We are off to a great start in 2017 and the steps we are taking today to both rebrand and list on the NYSE will continue our momentum. We’ve built a team and acreage position that is poised for growth.”
