    Biopicker should I short now?

    Does the 15% collar mean the stock portion of the buyout can go up or down 15% or what? what is the downside risk?
    Does the buyout have a penalty or could someone else bid for Guilford, ie are we in play?
    Anybody know these answers?
    Thanks

      I'm Guessing its TIED to MOGN shareprice.

      ASSUMPTION is if MOGN falls before the deal closes MOGN will issue up to 15% to keep the deal on par with the $3.75.

      Nice COLLAR

      MOGN is trading nicely today too

      Looks ok

      As a Small time holder to hold until the deal closes for .10 isn't worth the wait IMO.

      Hence there will be a cap between $3.55 & $3.65 IMO

      • From the MOGN press release.

        "The stock portion of this consideration is subject to a collar such, as determined over a certain five day period prior to closing of the merger, that Guilford shareholders will receive total consideration of $3.75 per share, consisting of a fractional share of MGI PHARMA common stock worth $2.625 plus $1.125 in cash, if MGI PHARMA's common stock price increases or decreases by less than 15% prior to the close of this transaction. If the average closing price of MGI PHARMA common stock is equal to or more than $31.71, each share of Guilford will be exchanged for 0.0828 of a share of MGI PHARMA stock plus $1.125 in cash. If the average closing price of MGI PHARMA stock is equal to or less than $23.43, each share of Guilford will be exchanged for 0.1120 of a share of MGI PHARMA stock plus $1.125 in cash."
