I called "Adam" at Durus last Thursday. I found his phone number on an SEC filing. He would not tell me whether Durus is tendering. He said he thought it would violate SEC rules to say anything except in a press conference.
I question why it would violate any SEC rules to say whether they are tendering. I did not pursue this point with him, however.
Incidentally, Adam was very cordial, asked where I was calling from, visited about how I got interested in pharma stocks, etc.
How about divulging that information selectively would provide insider information, since the stock price likely would drop like a rock if they said they werent selling? I'm sure they are resticted from doing that by registering their ownership of such a large per centage of stock. Also, guarantee they have already agreed to this being such an important player in the aquisition. Do you really think PFE would go thru all the money, trouble and fanfare if it wasnt a done deal. The only hope for a higher offer in my opinion is a competing bid, and time is running out.
