    Reason for Deal

    IMHO, the good doctor cut a deal where (1) his options vest (change of control) and (2) the acquiring company will keep him on and give him a retention package (options, pay, retention bonus, etc.). There was a big emphases in the CC on the fact that ASTX would retain its current structure and people as a wholely own sub.
