ICYMI | Bloomberg: Tallgrass CEO Slams Hedgeye Analyst Who Asks, ‘You Mad Bro?’ - tallgrass

 

Via Bloomberg:

 

"Tallgrass Energy Partners LP Chief Executive Officer David Dehaemers had more on his mind than earnings during the company’s quarterly call with analysts on Wednesday.

 

Dehaemers took a break from talking strategy to accuse Hedgeye Risk Management analyst Kevin Kaiser of libel. Ripping into what he described as “people who act like analysts,” Dehaemers said Kaiser falsely reported on Aug. 1 that Tallgrass faces a potential contract restructuring with Bonanza Creek Energy Inc. Dehaemers said Bonanza is not a shipper on the company’s Pony Express oil pipeline. Kaiser lashed back on Twitter, citing Bonanza filings that appeared to back up his report.

 

On Thursday, James Edwards, Bonanza’s investor relations director, said by phone the oil explorer uses the pipeline through a third party."

... And here's Tallgrass CEO David Dehaemers' comments about Kaiser's research from the conference call transcript:

 

"And you probably wonder now what am I talking about; well I'm going to tell you specifically what I'm talking about. On Monday, July or August 01, at 8.40 p.m. an analyst from Hedgeye Energy [ph] sent an unsolicited email to, I don't know how many people, but it clearly made its way to us. It went to many of our investors. It went to many of the regulated analysts or the people that act like analysts that cover our company...


You all know what is funny about this? Frankly, it is not funny. What it is, is libel. And the reason it is libel is because Bonanza Creek is not a shipper on Pony, they have never shipped one barrel on Pony Express. They certainly aren't a committed shipper.


I would suggest to people that write things about our company, be that in social media or as purported analysts, get their facts straight before they go libeling our company because they are liable for that.

 

I will end with my message being this. We work really hard around here for a lot of people that have a lot of money invested in our future. People are obviously welcome to believe our story, not believe it, buy our stock, sell it short, whatever. What you aren't able and have the right to do is make up your own set of facts and then slander us. If this continues we will have other means for which we will address this in the future."
