And if you are listening to this conference callYou might think the words are going wrongBut they're not.They just say it that way
In September of 2010, five months after Northern executed the agreement with Ashwood to divest these minute working interests, Brittany, my wife, began assisting Ashwood as an independent contractor to process the massive amounts of paperwork that's associated with owning over 90 minuscule well bores. She's paid a monthly fee as an administrative assistant. It's not dependent on the profitability of Ashwood or any other factor.
The agreement with Ashwood makes sense for NOG, and it's not improper in any way. We stand behind the decision we made to divest the minuscule working interest. And I understand the goal of the article was to damage my credibility or my family's credibility or Northern's credibility. But nothing that's being alleged affects the value of Northern's assets. We haven't done anything wrong. This was not a related party transaction.
