For a driller that missed out on deep water rigs and now wants to get into it, all you have to do is buy VTG. Then sale all the jackups and you end up with 5 deep water rigs at a good price.
Other then that, It's going to be a long time coming before we see 3.
I would absolutely hate it if we got bought out...this company will be a money machine in 5 years...taking advantage of such a hot market with brand new drill ships is brilliant...in time we will take business from the big dogs with older fleets and will have a respectable fleet of our own...sure short term this will slow us down, but I dont care...this will just accelerate the growth and revenue that much more in a couple years... and at 5.5%? Banks see us as much more strong...it will pay us dividends in time...I will wait...ZD is crying cause this messed up his short term plan
