AMRN, although an Irish PLC, is doing business in the USA ,and is therefore subject to our SEC regulations. Not all offers must be disclosed to shareholders, but all bona fide offers of a takeover must be disclosed. So if an offer is substantially above the current market price,
and is being offered by a qualified corporation, or individual, and it appears to be a bona
fide offer, where the conditions of purchase are fairly boilerplate and not insurmountable, and where funding is not a material issue, then it must be disclosed to shareholders .
If it gets to the shareholders JZ won't be the decision maker. Retail longs are p-ed off right now and would take $15 in a heartbeat. And the large institutions getting in right now would jump at the chance to flip from $7 to $15 within such a short time period.
Don't get married to a stock. Remember the object is to make money, not carry it around like a pet your entire life.
I would suggest that you realize there has never been any offer for Amarin. Nothing. Not a thing more than hype. Irish law requires that any offer must be announced to shareholders. There has never been any offer and has never been any announcement as such. The only thing that implied a potential deal was Joe Z hype at a time he and other insiders sold millions of shares. Joe Zs comments of ongoing discussions with potential buyers could easily be nothing more than unsuccessful sales pitch phone calls from Joe Z to major pharma companies.
