    The a look at their website. Very impressive. According to the site " we are one of the most experienced and successful private equity investment firms in the
    United States". Maybe they want to do an LBO. Any thoughts on this?

    • This thing is spewing (196,000,000 shares x 2.40)470 million dollars a year to its shareholders. If it were taken private, that 470 million dollars would be used to service any debt incurred. Its amazing that a company distributing 470 million dollars a year is only worth 3.7 billion (based on market value).

    • They provided early venture capital for this company and made a lot of money taking them public. They are back for another bite at the apple. An LBO is a possibility but may be very hard to finance in this debt market. My guess is this is a passive investment but I've been wrong before.

    • I hope not. Since CSE has been driven down so much during the last few months, I just don't see how we could get anything approaching a fair price at the moment. Maybe in a few years when the stock is much higher and I have collected several years of dividends.....
