We discussed this over the holidays. WMIH has until COB Monday to file an 8-K about a material event occurring on 12/31/12.
In another vein, the recent activity could be in relation to the $125MM WMIH receives upon approval of a business plan. Circulation of a proposed term sheet could be responsible or something firmer. In any event, I expect the capitalization (via PP) and M&A to be announced concurrently.
Much, when you say, "i found it interesting, because the deal was made in december, and was reported today."
I think that you are on to something. I'll bet you that Blackstone and Wmih made a big deal for a merger or buyout. But they are keeping the news quiet/secret until the year 2024! Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!
