I'm just tagging along for the view.

I still work (part time) in the industry and have heard nothing of these guys. One of my long term associates (a personal friend) is at CHK OK City and he is keeping his "head down and thinning the cabbage", so to say.

He is wise. The old CHK had one of the most corpulently bloated overhead levels I have ever seen in a public company. This is a shop where when the activists finally chucked out Mr. McClendon found that they had to lay off multiple company chaplains (only in Oklahoma) and a company beekeeper. I could easily see those running the guillotine getting a little too enthusiastic.

No personal knowledge or insight, but I found this 2012 M&A analysis for the oilfield services sector. It wouldn't be bad news for your investment if the spin-off gets established then gets gobbled up.
