Oklahoma City-Based GMX Shareholder Requests Evaluation of Strategy


Page, David, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The largest single shareholder of GMX Resources common stock has requested an evaluation of strategic options.

In a letter to Ken L. Kenworthy Jr., president, CEO and chairman of the board of Oklahoma City-based GMX, Peter K. Seldin, managing member of Centennial Energy Partners, said through various entities Centennial owns nearly 2.85 million shares, or 15.2 percent, of GMX common stock.

Centennial also is the largest shareholder in Houston-based Tesco Corp., owning 16.9 percent of the drilling services provider. Seldin is a Tesco director.
