Why does it have to be about a buy out? I'm glad they are doing R&D. He said himself they are not going to lose their cutting edge. Research and development is necessary for patents and financial security for the future.
If OSIR was bought for....let's say $3.4 billion....you shares would be worth $100 each. You could keep your shares and buy the equities offered by the buyer, if available. That way you could still be "in love" with OSIR and not abandon your connection.....wahtever!
