I have been looking for examples of companies that have been publicly traded but haven't found any examples.
Would the LDK Board settle with individual shareholders that refuse to sell?
I really don't know.
It just looks like a big mess right now. I have a feeling that there are some Hedge Funds out there that have been NSS and they will fail 100% if this company ever turns it around. Which I think is a liklihood.
LDK has a lot of weapons available If the downtrend theme is towards bankruptcy...
Which I don't think it is.
I think there is a very real potential of consolidation and mergers in the Industry.
I really do think LDK could merge with other Chinese solar companies. The one that makes the most sense to me is JA Solar as there is a business partnership already.
There will be a Chinese solar recovery, but there will be winners and losers....
LDK at one point had a market cap of 7 billion (Sept 2007)... I think it will one day return to that amount. Will it take 4 years? Maybe.
