    They still need each other?

    This reminds me of the time(TLAB) was looking to merge with (CIEN) right before the deal was done (CIEN) found some accounting irregularities. (TLAB) got cold feet and quashed the deal. The biggest question at the time was which stock to buy because they both went through a drop in price. same with these stocks. The stock holders for (TLAB) did the same as you stockholders pressued the board to kill the deal. but the real question is. (IS THE PART GREATER THAN THE WHOLE) ask (TLAB) today.

      Well, since in my opinion, the whole will go out of business in a short period of time, I would have to say the part indeed is greater than the whole.

    • Wouldn't be surprised to see Lefkoff and Co busy accumulating at this prices... he likes to play the stock of his own company as evidence by his July sales... Then perhaps they kill the deal and there you are.

      This is a game much bigger than little retail guys can play.

    • I watched that TLAB/CIEN wild ride. Finally bought TLAB at/near bottom, then sold for a modest short term gain later in '98. But passed on CIEN at $8 ($4 post split). CIEN a 12 bagger from there to $50 today, even after huge drop this year.

      From $2/share, not hard to imagine a 12 bagger in NTPA in three years.

      I was in EFNT when Siemens made offer. Sold my position next morning. That deal tells me NTPA worth a lot more than $2. Buy and wait.
