John wants full control desperately, WHY??? Its because he knows that Siri is a fantastic BUY. He dont buy for a loss!!! To use NOLS, he needs 80% ownership!!! His friends will loan him this kind of dosh. Why because there's $8-billion of NOLS. I dont know John Malones finances but if he can get to use this level of Nols then he will have received a massive discount for his Siri buy. This is why the pps is rising sharply and $5.00 is possible. 80% of 8-billion at $5.00 per share means JM will be worth over $30-billion in Siri alone. And what if he expands Siri internationally to China and India with say 1-billion customers. Wow, an operation say 50 times what it is now, we are talking real big, could be another Apple or Microsoft.
Its a question of converting cash to more cash but 80% of 8-billion x share price of probably $5 pps means he would need $15-billion but he would have over $30-billion of NOLS. Thats why share price will continue rising in all probability to $5.00 because JM is onto a real big winner here!!!
