Wexford Capital, PE arm?

Rank: Gorilla | 516

Does anyone have much information on Wexford Capital the HF and their bayside arm? I have a call coming up with a guy that I believe is in the PE arm. I cannot access information on the firm because I am not an investor do not have an access code.

I spent a few hours reading their 13F but that is about all I am running on.

Anything is helpful.
