“We took ROSE management on an NDR last week, including its new CEO, David French, who was appointed to the role in March 2019. The trip reaffirmed our view that the company holds underappreciated assets and has a solid game plan in place to address pushbacks on the story including a smaller acreage position and complicated balance sheet. We also came away impressed with Mr. French’s abilities to lead ROSE and think he helps improve ROSE’s ability to tell the story to the street. Ongoing: A topic that was almost universally brought up in meetings was its potential sale of northern Delaware Basin water infrastructure assets. Management noted that the process continues and that a sale in 2019 is still likely. We think potential proceeds are in the $50MM-$75MM range.”,” the firm’s analyst wrote.
