None. FSL owners will get .3521 shares of NXP and $6.25 cash for each FSL share, and given the $500M projected savings, a pink slip, if you still work there.
If you do the math, at any given moment FSL trades to this ratio, or up to $1 lower.
Currently they both trade separately when and will they go nxpi. how many shares will be out standing? which co if any would be a better buy going in? I need help/opinions I know a little bout nxpi but not much of this Austin co (Great town)
It's just a statement of fact, not an opinion. Why would anyone give a FACT a "thumbs down" unless they were a sore loser? I can't think of any other reason.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Holding FSL is almost a can't lose prop. It has to move in tandem with nxpi price due to the 35% tie in. However, if another buyer comes in, or is rumored, it flies. Why would you hold nxpi when the worst they can do until merger close is be at same % up/down, but only FSL has surprise upside (however unlikely)?
There are 3K shares short for this little POS stock. Go find another board to spam please.
This deal will not fail. Everything is well discussed beforehand with the relevant authorities (they announced already selling a specific part of NXPI business and have already a buyer lined up). Furthermore FSL needs to disappear from the boards since the missing MH plane.A soothing thought that NXPI has been chosen to take over the lead. Will be a huge winner.
TSRI is a Nasdaq play that needs to be on your trading screen right now! TSRI has a float of less than 1m and is being shorted hard after its run up the other day. Shorts are unable to take control so any upward momentum could cause this stock to FLY
I agree. NXPI is the long term play and FSI is at such a small discount that it does not make a lot of sense to own FSI instead - UNLESS, there are other potential buyers that are either rumored or confirmed. This may be a possibility and is why I own FSI. If the NXPI deal somehow fails, FSI may still hold its value based on another possible suitor appearing. All IMHO.
Interesting quote. It literally can't be about the employees. Companies are in business to enrich their shareholders. Any positive flow to the employee is aimed at productivity and retention, but in the end, it's about stock price. How the old white guys near the top manage to loot the company piggy bank is another story. For example, Bill Bradford served as senior VP to Freescale just before the LBO. He was pals with Michel Mayer who put him in that position. Less than a year and a half he was out but the guy got a $4M package. Nice place, corporate America.
