The sale had nothing to do with it. What did have something to do with it was that they were aware that Elliott's efforts would be suspended for a year. The sale of the 3 entities was a non-event. The stock being propped up to $11 was because the proposed sale price was at $11. Now that is off the table, for at least a year, and anyone who had shares hoping for that is dead money. Same thing - they knew. They had to have known, and that sucks.
