    Absurdly low valuation

    Their stake in SPB alone is worth $770m, more than $100m more than their market cap, so you're getting that plus an insurance company, a $50m stake in NOA, and some cash for free.

    • I agree it seems very cheap.

      Also, factor in their stake in XTXI.

      But you must then account for the significant debt position (with 10%+ coupon), dilution potential of the recently issued preferred stock, and the tax ramifications of any appreciation in their holdings relative to their cost basis upon a sale.

      Finally, I think there is an overhang/discount associated with Lightsquared. Any day you may wake up to find out that you are now the happy owner of a significant chunk of this company. I think that potential keeps many people away.
