Magnum Hunter De-Listed from NYSE; Still Shopping Eureka Hunter

Magnum Hunter Resources (MHR) is a company in trouble. We won’t recount all of the signs (read our MHR articles here). One of the silver bullets that was supposed to help pull MHR’s bacon out of the fire was the sale of their midstream/pipeline subsidiary Eureka Hunter. On August 14 MHR CEO Gary Evans announced there were three potential buyers for Eureka Hunter and that a deal would net the company somewhere around $600-$700 million. Evans said a deal was imminent. That deal never materialized. In November the company refinanced some of its debt to keep going and stopped holding quarterly conference calls with investors (see Magnum Hunter Refinances Again, Dodges a Bullet…Just Barely). Also in November, MHR told the Securities and Exchange Commission that the company is likely headed for bankruptcy (see Dire Straits: Magnum Hunter Tells SEC Heading for Bankruptcy). However, one of MHR’s investors has stated he’ll sue to prevent them from filing for bankruptcy (see Magnum Hunter Investor: We’ll Sue to Stop Bankruptcy Filing). Yeah, it’s complicated.
