    • Let me try put a $ value to the list of assets in your post.
      Fort Worth Basin - Barnett Shale: $1,455 based on the Tokyo Gas deal
      Horn River Basin $450 - $600
      Conservative 130,000 x 3,400 based on the Apache-ECA/EOG late 2012 transaction
      Optimistic 130,000 x 4,500+
      Horseshoe Canyon: not sure about your acreage or its valuation, at least its an asset in production. :)
      Sand Wash Basin: $250
      167,000 x 1,500 based on the equalization payment from Shell to KWK for the recent JV deal
      Delaware & Midland basins & Southern Alberta Basin: No idea. :)

      Let's take the conservative estimate for HRB, we then have
      $1,455 + $450 + $250 = $2.155
      + Horseshoe Canyon + Delaware & Midland basins & Southern Alberta Basin
      This is a sold asset coverage for its net debt of ~$1.6B (excluding $ from its valuable hedge contracts).

    • Informative post. Also watch Quicksilver bonds, which has been very steady for the last couple of weeks. Notice both 2019 senior unsecured and 2016 sub are at the bottom of the capital structure, and the 2019 doesn't enjoy as much temporal seniority like the 2016; they would be among the first to fall in all Quicksilver debts. Yet today, there is average/below-average trading volume and steady price in both.

    • I focused on the facts for too long. The only thing that matters at this point is the price per share. With the Barclays downgrade- who knows how low we will go. If the company has valuable assets like we think they do, why so much negativity and downgrades. Call it manipulation or maybe just bad investing/analysis/research on our part. In addition, why a downgrade by Barclays so close to the earnings call on Aug 6? If this goes under $1 per share- we have to worry about the threat of being delisted. In addition, the lower the stock price, the lower the potential acquisition price if a buyout occurs. There has not been any good news since the barnett sale of 25% months ago. We keep preaching the same story, but I only hear crickets!

    • Sand Wash Basin – Colorado
      •167,000 net acres with Shell which we believe is prospective for oil from the Niobrara Formation
      •Three wells drilled in 2012, verticals averaging approximately 100 MMbl/d
      •2013 Plan ◦Participate in the drilling of up to 8 wells and renew leases

      Delaware & Midland basins – West Texas
      •167,000 net acres, of which we believe 126,000 is prospective for oil from the Wolfcamp and Bone Springs formations
      •2013 Plan ◦Drill 2-3 wells

      Southern Alberta Basin – NW Montana
      •170,000 net acres; 68% held by production
