    It seems like Steel and COSN played this one well by gaining commitments on the shares held by the other funds. I can't imagine anyone wanting to hold a position in API with COSN being in such a control position.

    Do you have an opinion on the value of COSN assuming this goes through?

    Based on my rough numbers, I put it between $3 and $4 a share.

    COSN will get over $11 million cash just from the NATH special dividend announced yesterday. Seems like a lot of value here with our without the API acquisition.

    I sold all my BH Friday. His antics continue to concern me. The latest is that he had BH sell stock at 250. Took those proceeds and put them in the Lion Fund. Then he has the Lion Fund use that money to buy shares at ~380. That doesn't seem to make sense to me if your primary focus is BH rather than SB or TLF. The aggressive buying also appears to be trying to drive the stock price up.

    Also, he buys two large positions in companies controlled by a fund who is challenging his antics at BH- seemingly using BH funds again primarily for his benefit.

    The stock is cheap so there may be more money to be made. But add these two issues on top of the other corporate governance concerns and I'm moving on.
