There has been no additional information made available. I do believe jfriedz87 quoted text as I have read the message personally on theflyonthewall which references bloomberg as the source. I suspect because of the timing of the message on 07-03-13 and the holiday in between, the timing was either intentional or just a rush to get the message out. There are many people out of the office today so we have a void. It would be nice to follow up from the other posters on this message board otherwise we are on our own. The story may be too stale for bloomberg to migrate to the free public view. Work your contacts and let us know what you learn.
If you still access to the bloomberg terminal can you tell us who wrote the story? Read the yahoo profile for Salix, OPTR would be a good fit and it looks like Salix has the cash and some stock reserves to fund the purchase.
It is on bloomberg. Unfortunately you will need a terminal to be able to see it now. I am sure as soon as the news is stale it will hit mainstream news and be published but as of the moment I do not have a link to validate my claims. It only mentioned those 3 as in the running. Its odd b/c I had not even heard Salix in the bidding once before this article. If we really want to get paid we need news of the bidding range so this stock can get a floor. As soon as I find a link to the article from bloomberg I will share it with the board. I am sure something will be out soon in regards to todays news.
