Looks like something is brewing for sure....8/13 finalizing offer, could we see another make an offer monday or this weekend? Can Cubist up their offer to shut everyone up....i think this coming week will be fun, break out the popcorn with extra butter, chocolate covered raisins, and a large soda....bring it in 3D, lol......
Cubist can up their offer, but this generally only happens in tenders if they are not receiving enough shares to get to 51%. And they can do at any point in the offer period (30? days from the 8/13 offer going out). If it were to happen, expect in early September.
It is VERY unlikely Cubist would up the anty just because of the "noise" of unhappy shareholders.
And another bidder also seams unlikely. It was no secret that they might get bought out. Any other interested party would likely have been in touch before the deal went down.
