We do not know what was in those other SI proposals. They haven't seen fit to tell us. May have been better for the shareholders, but not so good for Doc. If Doc has a conflict of interest in these negotiations, that could be a real problem. If Blackstone offered Doc a fat package of perks and money to sign a deal that was not the best for shareholders, that might be called a bribe. I find it curious that IR was reassuring us that the company "would not screw over the shareholders" (verbatim quote from my conversation with a woman whose name I know but will not post), while the i's were dotted and the t's crossed on this deal we are told was not "chosen" until the last minute. I suppose we were being treated to some "Bill Clinton logic" in the CC. I would love to see a discovery process to uncover the chronology of this "deal." Every time PZN/CCA makes a move to fix a problem, big money goes out the door for fees to "consultants," bankers, and wall street "houses" (and you know the kinds of houses I mean). This stinks.
