I didn't mean to stir up such a hornet's nest of controversy. I do agree that the GP would make a BETTER candidate but the article seems to imply that LP's are being considered by the financial players. With the BOD and management owning just over 20% of the $1.12B market cap, XTXI would be a prime candidate. The only problem I see is that they might have to pay for a lot of the upside to get the shares. Yorktown still owns over 2,000,000 shares and they could acquire that in an arms length transaction.
