    Considering your response, this would also mean
    that for PZN to issue current preferred for the
    special, it would have to do so at the current market
    price (around $15 the last time I looked which
    admittedly was a month ago) instead of the face value of
    $25. That helps to alleviate the fear of recieving a
    security worth very sustantially less than the tax or cash

    Of course, the issuance of these securities
    immediately effects the market price, as supply increases
    cause a drop.

    It seems likely that PZN would
    issue an entirely new type of security with no market
    record so that they could value the security at face
    value, instead of a depressed market. The advantage to
    the company of issuing fewer shares is less
    continuing cash outflow going forward.

    I note that
    when PAH issued preferred to maintain REIT status, its
    $25 face value had a market price of $21 by the time
    it posted to my account. Still, the company redeemed
    those shares after six months for face value plus
