    Reality Check

    There is no way a deal that only offers $14.25 to all the 'unimportant shareholders' and stubs to all the 'important shareholders' will be approved. There will be lawsuits for discrimination. They have to offer the smaller shareholders a higher price to appease them. The latest discussions with Dell, BX, and Icahn have them all pooling into it together and letting the large shareholders like Southeastern, T.Rowe, Icahn, Blackrock, Dell take stubs instead of cash, but forcing everyone else to cash out at $14.25. That is blatently unfair. I think the majority of shareholders if given the choice at $14.25 would keep their shares, not sell. The smart money already has stated that they believe this company is worth north of $20. Also, if I buy today at $14.26, don't I still get to receive the July dividend of $0.08, so worse case scenario, I get $14.33 or are they trying to close the deal by June/July of this year and screw the shareholders out of the next dividend payment.
