    Time to accumulate. Over 8 percent return in your money in 6 to 9 months at these levels with an extremely high probability of the deal closing. Holding 18000 shares at 23.62 and accumulating more.
    Bullish

    CHNG & UNH just issued a joint press release extending the merger agreement to 12/31/2022. CHNG announced a special $2.00/sh dividend at the closing of the deal so it appears the total compensation to shareholders is now $27.75. Also, UNH agreed to pay CHNG a sum of $650 MILLION if the deal is not consummated. This is a win/win for CHNG.

    See recent comments below from UNH mgmt. It's doubtful the COO of UNH would issue such a statement if he believed DOJ would seek to block the merger.
    UnitedHealth Group expects its nearly $8 billion acquisition of Change Healthcare to close in early 2022, executives told investors on Thursday. Chief Operating Officer Dirk McMahon said on the company's earnings call that the regulatory process is proceeding apace. "We continue to work diligently to satisfy regulatory requests and now believe, based on our experience so far, the transaction should close in the first part of 2022," he said. "We are highly energized about the positive impact we can have working together with the exceptional Change team; a team aligned with our mission and values and focused on delivering substantial benefits for the health care system," he added. UnitedHealth Group intends to fold Change into its Optum subsidiary, which features a large data analytics arm, OptumInsight. McMahon said that the company believes the combination will allow it to address gaps in care, reduce administrative waste and allow for greater simplicity in healthcare payments. "Optum and ChangeHealthcare’s capabilities fundamentally are complementary and distinct. Because both companies already successfully serve health plans and state governments, care providers and consumers in a highly competitive market, we believe this combination will make the health care system work better for everyone, and bring exceptional value to those we serve," McMahon said.

    There will be massive selling tomorrow due to fact that virtually 100% of current shareholders purchased shares due to merger.

    What's the problem here? This 7 billion dollar company is being bought by a 300 billion-dollar company. The stock price is locked in--$25.75 all cash.

    Seems it should be trading at $25.50.

    Is there any news on the buyout by UNH? The price action of CHNG is very strange. It's dropped by more than 4% over the past couple weeks. There was a change at the top of UNH, but the new CEO is the former head of Optum who likely would have been involved in the buyout. Very strange.

    The price movement today (1/3/22) is a knee-jerk reaction to a memo issued this morning by Piper Sandler saying the "market is increasingly skeptical" of the buyout. Oh really? Talk about stating the obvious. This is the same firm which said a few months ago they "remain buyers" of CHNG.

    Nearly two million shares traded in the after-market on Thurs. Stock price was up 3.5% to $23.70. Looks like the deal might be finally coming to fruition. I voted "Yes" for my CHNG shares yesterday.

    Down 1.5% today on heavy volume. Something appears to be happening with the buyout.

    Based on today's news, I think it's likely that UNH/CHNG will call off the merger. Also, there was obviously insider trading on this news as the CHNG share price has been declining for the past few weeks

    From the proxy statement…
    “ Further, upon termination of the Merger Agreement, under certain specified circumstances, Change may be required to pay a termination fee of $300,000,000 to UnitedHealth Group pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement. See the section entitled “The Merger Agreement— Termination Fees and Expenses” beginning on page [●] for a discussion of the circumstances under which Change will be required to pay a termination fee…”
