Big Players Grab Stakes in Arcan Resources

Article from the Calgary Herald:


  1. Any guess as to what Petrobakken is thinking here, Devon?

  2. Sure, I think it is pretty simple. Crescent Point thought these assets were a good deal at $5 per share plus. I don't think there is any reason to think that Crescent Point doesn't know how to value Swan Hills acreage.

    Petrobakken is now buying shares at 20% of the price. It is a good deal, especially when Petrobakken can buy the whole company and therefore doesn't risk having the management team run it into the ground like us passive investors do.
