That was one of the points brought up in the S Alpha.article today. APPL has been getting a lot of Flack for sitting on so much $$$ Billions and Billions. And instead of buying a VHC which they will have to settle with sooner or later. Work around will take 12-18 mts. They would lose a ton of Rev and further damage to brand name if they tried that. They lost once and the same patents are in play just for new products.
Sooooo Instead of fighting and losing and paying out Hundreds of Millions, Invest some of that Huge Hoard of cash and Do Something.. And would save them $$$ on a almost slam dunk LOSS in court of most likely a settlement before then.
Am new here and to VHC. Friend in the hedge fund biz told me to start buying about a month ago. Still getting up to speed on the deal but sure looks like VHC has APPL by the short hairs and Cisco also on the horizon. Beat MSoft and APPL already.
Am curious how such a lawsuit ended up in some E Texas court. Seems odd. But does look like they got a good an fair judge who does not tolerate BS and legal tap dances. There are some tough cookies over there.
All the best and thanks for all those who do post informative posts. Shame we are riddled with #$%$.. and being generous calling some of them that.
