Still pissed that I missed this one in 2019 when it was in single digits. Today, BP made a super smart $1.3 billion all cash bid for the company and unless there are some regulatory hurdles or the deal falls through because it’s low AF, then say bye bye to this one. I don’t think BP will care about fix and flip like a PE firm would, but that’s also a possibility. It will have to assume the $2.2 billy in debt, but will get a pretty decent asset, in my opinion.
