Pride International (PDE) has a new CEO

Jun. 30, 2005 11:07 AM ETPride International, Inc. (PDE) Stock

Yesterday, offshore drilling contractor Pride International (ticker: PDE) announced the resignation of CEO Paul Bragg. He will be replaced by CFO Louis Raspino. PDE went through a tough patch in 2003 with poor execution leaving the company with a sullied reputation and a weak balance sheet. The hiring of Raspino in December of 2003 was looked at as a positive move due to his track record as a very good CFO.

Raspino has done some very good things, lowering debt by >$500 million and the debt/capital ratio from 53% to under 40%. A stronger pricing environment probably contributed a great deal to the improvement but, Raspino is delivering.

You can go to the website to find out more about the new CEO as they are holding a webcast at 10:00 am.
