I was told by the investor relations person at Astex that it could take two weeks if you tendered your shares, and if you did not tender your shares, it will take a month!!!! To me that is ridiculous! If we owed anyone else that amount of money, we would be charged interest!
Just used part of my just released funds (as a non-tenderer) to purchase GALE...and I was hit with a $20 transaction fee for the courtesy of holding with ASTX. Was trolling the GALE message board...seems like the wild west in terms of postings there. Best of luck everyone!
