I feel this move would add more trading volume to the stock. Between the institutions holding the stock and the CHX people, apx 85% of the stock is tightly held. This could allow more trading with less volitility, or an easier exit for larger shareholders. I perfer to think this will favor shareholders, by taking out price swings on little volume. I believe mgt has acted in the best interest of shareholders before and will continue to do so since they hold so much of the stock. A split is almost automatic, my guess is 3 for 2. Any large sell order would probably come in the form of another public offering, similar to the ADM deal. Maybe a split and offer combined for 2 for 1. Just my opinion.
