    Shareholder vote on DIGE deal

    So how is everyone voting? I voted for! Any DIGE shareholder comments?

    • I was accunulating before the buyout and tendered all my Digene stock for all Quiagen stock. Look forward to becoming more familiar with Quiagen, but from what I've heard (Quiagen conference calls) and read, being part of Quiagen appears very promising - especially with what Digene brings to the table. As a long-time (10 years) Digene stockholder, I was initially disappointed in the buyout price - thought Digene was on the verge of rapid expansion and growth and expected soon a share price of >$100. So $61.25 looked slim. But now I like the combined prospects, am glad to have Quiagen management leading the way (they sound like an improvement over Digene mngmnt who didn't seem to know how to take Digene to the next level), and am glad Quiagen is not spending anymore cash on the deal to those who are walking away with $61.25 per share. Hope this board turns out to be as positive, informative and helpful as has been my long experience on the Digene board.
