Apple is known for the vertical integration of its supply chain, so a UNXL buyout is not farfetched. However, UNXL will have to prove its capabilities first. It will take a few quarters before the company can generate any serious buying interest.
If it does get sold, all of these guys are going to have to agree:
BANK OF AMERICA CORPORATION
WELLINGTON MANAGEMENT COMPANY, LLP
MARXE, AUSTIN W. & GREENHOUSE, DAVID M.
ESSEX INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT CO INC
SOPHROSYNE CAPITAL LLC
Revelation Capital Management Ltd.
Clear Harbor Asset Management, LLC
PERKINS CAPITAL MANAGEMENT, INC.
WHITEBOX ADVISORS, LLC
Honestly, these institutions are probably going to be as tight fisted as I am. They know that they stand more to gain by not allowing this company to be sold. In the long run we all stand to make more by holding fast.
