    Framesbane - Accounting

    Guys, what your talking about means
    nothing, what is this library they hold
    really worth?? If it is valuable the
    noteholders will back off and let them
    run a business with them overseeing
    what's going on, with someone on the
    board. The noteholder as I can see
    will get very little bang for the buck
    they have invested. It comes down to how
    honest or dishonest is the library value.

      I don't think you will find any place where I've claimed it's worthless. In a forced liquidation, it's probably worth around $60 million. There wouldn't be much point is liquidating the data assets as there wouldn't be anything left to issue new stock in after they were done. A reorganized Seitel, minus current management, might actually end up being a going concern once the notes are swapped out for new stock. In a year or two the note holders would be in a position to IPO their stock and probably get most of their money back.
