Lind, Thanks. It does not look like Jon Jr. is involved in the company. I see brother Peter is currently CEO. Would you be referring to the family aspect of tie ing (sp?) up the Huntsmans hands?
Lind, Thanks. I was invested years ago as an arb play with the Hexion deal. How does the charitable obligations funding process work? Is the funding required every year or as needed? I imagine offering hun stock to the charity is not a viable funding option?
Sorry, the second part of your question.
I'm not sure that Jon Jr.'s political ambitions have much to do with sale of HUN, particularly since I doubt he's electable...at least this time around. Having said that, it would tie the Huntsmans' hands with respect to HUN if Jr. were to become president, and Sr. might not survive a two term Huntsman presidency, so on the margin it might maximize flexibility to sell HUN prior to the election.
Lind, Off topic as KS would say. Whats your basic premise on Jon Sr. selling HUN? News this AM as Obama has selected Locke as Jon Jr's replacement for Ambassador to China. Rumor is Jon Jr. will form an exploratory committee for 2012 bid. Whats the connection if any?
