Tim, I have been investing successfully in microcaps for a long long time and have lots of contacts in the industry. With all due respect, just because I have done a my due diligence, dont call it a "pump" - as you have no clue about what you are saying.
Now that the deal has closed, both Jeffries and funds that participated can both discuss how much demand for the shares there was - that isnt "insider info". Many funds did NOT get their full allocation. Additionally, given the recent buying activity since the deal closed, it is clear to me that they are in the open mkt making up for the shares they were unable to get on the over- subsubscribed offering.
