    If that is the case, then you have to add 475 million to my value of 330 (815 million) from my prior email, which makes no sense, because it is trading at a market cap of less than 200 million.

    I am calculating about 225 million in cash when all is said in done.

    Total Debt 1001

    Tanker Debt erased 260
    ORIG Debt erased 80
    ABN Amro Erased 185

    Total Debt 476

    Cash received from sale of all ships

    1,416,225 2nd Q balance sheet
    795,000 Writedown
    621,225,000 Cash from sales
    476,000,000 Debt on ships
    145,225,000 Total Cash
    80,000,000 Cash reported at last conference call
    225,000,000 Cash
    165,000,00 ORIG Stake
    390,000,000 ORIG plus cash

    We need to add current assets and subtract current liabilities I believe which shaves 60 million off value of company.

    330 million value of company is what I came up with

    Does the company have to pay back the debt from cash proceeds or does George assume the debt?

    From the PR it sounds that George will assume the debt but it makes no sense to me.

    we will go into a recession because of perception which is much more important then the event itself. Algos strengthen the dollar and the rest follow.

    The company never traded off ORIGs valuation so even if ORIG goes up I dont expect DRYS to benefit.

  • Ocean Rig Shareholders Get The Shaft (Again) [View article]
    orig stole those shares back from Drys. Only 2 months prior they did a secondary offering at 7 and bought pretty much the entire offering back at a huge discount. The book value now rises and future profits will increase when the drilling industry recovers. Cutting the dividend needed to save 100 million plus a year for debt service costs.
