    nice call:

    2) let's just assume that there is a partnership/buyout on August 11, only you know where you stand as far as how much you will be losing if this happens. If it were me, I would beg, steal, or borrow to cover. The very least you could do is try to balance the books a little by purchasing some shares to ease the pain a little.

    More IC vendors to engage in merger or acquisition deals
    Cage Chao, Taipei; Steve Shen, DIGITIMES [Friday 25 July 2014]

    Following the recent announcement of the planned merger between FocalTech Systems and Orise Technology, more Taiwan-based touchscreen controller and LCD driver IC vendors are likely to be involved in merger or acquisition deals, according to industry sources. FocalTech will take over the management of Orise scheduled on January 2015, but the survivor company will continue to use Orise's name for a while after the merger.

    Raydium Semiconductor has been indicated to be a target for acquisition as its parent company, the AU Optronics (AUO) Group, has said that it will actively release its holdings in non-core business units in 2014. AUO also holds a minor stake in Orise.
    A number of companies, including Elan Microelectronics, Novatek Microelectronics and Himax Technologies, have been indicated as potential buyers for Raydium, the sources noted.

    Elan aims to land touchscreen controller chip orders from AUO through acquisition of Raydium, while ramping up its revenues to over NT$10 billion (US$333.44 million) a year, the sources remarked. But other sources indicated that Raydium, which has been performing well in recent years, has an intention to acquire touch-controller vendor Egalax-empia Technology (EETI).
