Mentor takes a significant position in any new member of our energy family, but prefers to leave operating control in the hands of existing management to continue to lead and grow their businesses, with the additional funding, acquisition currency, and benefits of working within a public environment. Mentor Capital, Inc. is a long-declared operating company, although intermittently, excess cash may be invested in other energy securities or commodities. The company plans to return a percentage of its potential gains from the classic energy sector to shareholders via dividends or stock repurchases.
