Look at the SEC Filings. It was the final installment of his 2010 option rights. I don't know where you get your volume stats. I purchased 100,000 shares on the open this morning alone?? Unfortunately, I think Ding will pull back his offer and go dark with this.
Does he specify how many percentage of his holding is now?
Some thing will happen when him and his gang loading up over 90% of the company as I predicted when he implemented this goofy holding company and VIE structure. If you are smart and brave to be the left over minority, you could be rewarded as Ding gang does. Depends on when Ding gang needs to do that. This process may take long time. It is good sign that he is doing some now. Perhaps. the new administration's campaign of weeding out the corrupt toxic grass is getting attention from Ding gang. I actually think Ding is pretty clever and is a fantastic strategist although I do not agree with such behavior of stealing money from helpless investors.
