Rice lucked out and leased areas which turned out to be great.
The employees didn't do that, the rice brothers did back before the company took off. Anyone could have drilled those areas and had good results.
That said, the proof will be in the pudding.
If the employees are SO good, then they will land at EQT. If not, then they are part of th fat being trimmed. We will wait and see. The numbers will not lie. Fwiw, I too have heard only 10-20% of rice folks to be retained.
