Not applicable to DOW. It is heavily in debt and getting into more debt. What good would it do stay with the company and see it defaults and file for BK. The probability is pretty high at this point if it buys ROH for 78$/share.
Idiot, not true. try reading the financials. dow is a strong company with a good balance sheet. they will pay off roh quickly if they cut the dividend and stock buybacks. read the merger doc and bank agreements. dow can not back out. sell dow and buy roh stock now. seriously, where else will you make 30 percent in a week
The interest payments on the combined debt alone would be over 2.5 billion, Dow and ROH together would be lucky to make enough to even pay that this year. Not to mention the dividend. If this deal doesn't get redone, look out below.
