I am a small shareholder and have been following the stock & this message board for a couple of months, unless Google has been acquiring shares secretly (which up to the SEC limits for disclosure is possible) who would sell to them? If Google offered you $10 for your shares wouldn't you suspect that Google really thought they were worth more, maybe much more to Google, would you sell? I don't think so because within about 5 to 7 weeks you would get to see what they are really worth (maybe more or maybe less).
But on the other hand what if Google has been acquiring shares every day, they only need about 50 million to control the company and force a sale at a price favorable to Google, then there is no reason to either try and buy the company (public offering) or settle before trial, because in the end win or lose VRNG will be owned by Google pretty much on their terms.
This really seems to me to be big fish eating little fish but only if the big fish can surprise the little fish by secretly consuming it share by share.
On the other hand I could just be an idiot, but it is fun to speculate!.
Did you get hit by a beer truck? You need to do some reading about stocks and the limits the SEC imposes on ownership without disclosing your position in a company. Geeez.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I am pretty sure it is 5% or 10% ownership that would have to be reported by SEC rules. Also I believe also that the Management of VRNG currently has voting control of company decisions, so they would decide on the price they would accept.
I think you might be an idiot, but not about everything, just this. There's something called a "poison pill," and the fact that this is for a huge part a litigation company, I'm pretty sure they are protecting their interests share-wise, and thus, yours.
