    7000 shares strong

    my only hope is that if they issue new shares it wouldnt affect us tremendously. if you read the merger agreement closely it did predict we would get diluted 9.6%. In the long run this is still very minimal based on the fact there is clear arbitrage here and this stock should 4x itself within 4-6 months. i just advise that you dont panic if there is some share dilution as this is pretty normal.

    anyone know if dilution is necessary if an M&A agreement happens? i just want to make sure i protect myself given how much $ I have at stake. I am prepared to hold for 2 years from today if needed.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • I'm new to the board and hold 22,000 thousand shares. If there is a buyout, does anyone know how the tax consequences would play out. I've held for less than a year and hold in a taxable account. I know that how the deal is structured matters a lot, but using Inhitex as an example, what is the likely scenario. Would we get cash and shares or just shares. Would the cash be realized and treated as ordinary income? Could we hold the shares of the acquiring company for a period and get a capital gain? Clearly, shorts need not bother responding. Thanks to all.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
