    The way I see the buyout offer....

    There could only be two reasons the board did not accept the offer.

    #1. There is somebody else with a higher offer.

    #2. The board believes the company is worth significantly more.

    The stock took a beating and is paying a 5 1/2% dividend. AVP has been around forever and is not going anywhere. When opportunity knocks.....you need to open the door!

      people who only see 'two reasons' have no imagination, and are almost certainly going to be blind-sided by what actually unfolds IMHO. there are lots of reasons the board may have rejected the offer. a few of those reasons might actually be aligned with the interests of shareholders. a few of them are not.
