    Bob, as I said, the acquisition price may hold nuan up somewhat as it is today but a NASDAQ correction will not keep it from falling.
  • G
    what other similar company would be next for buyout,,any interesting comments??
  • w
    I remember over the years of holding Nuance it always seemed the SP didn't do so good over the summer months. That is the reason on my comment of under $53.

    Four (4) Law Firms investigating Nuance.
    Lifshitz Law Firm, P.C. Announces Investigation,
    Halper Sadeh LLP Continues to Investigate,
    Monteverde & Associates PC Announces an Investigation of Nuance,
    Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC Investigates

    They seeking big pay day? Seeking to block sale ?
  • J
    Will current Nuance shareholders have the option to exchange their shares for Microsoft shares? Having the option at least could be beneficial for tax management purposes, if so desired. Thank you.
  • S
    A "preliminary proxy statement" has been posted today on Nuance's Investor site: https://investors.nuance.com/sec-filings

    Why not a deal structured where Nuance shareholders receive MSFT stock in exchange for their Nuan shares ... seems the better option re: capital gains. What’s the advantage to all cash deal?

    41 million shares short 4/29 and buyout at $56.
    Why haven't they covered yet?
  • D
    So has anyone read what's going on or can point me in the right direction with NUAN. I've had shares since last October but all I know is Microsoft is supposedly buying them out at $56 but I haven't found any legit info on the buyout yet.
  • T
    With the market overbought this is my safe place for the next few months. I'LL TAKE 6% RISK FREE ANY TIME but especially now! $245k in here and more if it goes below $53 which I doubt seriously. Thums up to agree
  • w
    Billy, I get the impression you are glad to be done with Nuance? I kind of look at it that way myself. I will do all I can to lessen my small tax burden from now to then.
  • P
    Why is JUAN stock below buyout price.
    1. This is typical behavior of many companies who are acquired with several quarter/months before the deal is closed. See WORK
    2. The buyout price $56 was below the average target $60, so Long term holders were looking to exit $60+. With the ceiling now at $56, some don’t see it worthwhile to hold 6-8 months for another $3-$4.
    3. Yes, there’s the time value of money or they see better opportunities than to have the money tied up for just $3. While others see an easy 6-7% gain (vs money in a bank) other see paltry gains vs trading in Nvidia or Microstrategy or other stocks with large moves.
    4. I was a former employee from a division NUAN sold off 😉
  • J
    Minimum guaranteed 7-8% upside based on $56 agreed upon cash purchase. What's there to think about?
  • J
    I am surprised no other bidders emerged for Nuan. I feel like MSFT is getting a steal. Very surprised that FB didn't try to counter, just to make MSFT pay more. Congrats Nuan.
  • F
    why would a stock with $56 cash offer drop 3 points?
  • J
    Bought more. I will vote against the merger. I think MSFT is undervaluing Nuance. I am hoping another suitor will offer $65 or more.
  • S
    As a NUAN shareholder, will I get MSFT stock or cash payment?
  • a
    If I buy at 53, am I guaranteed 56 at closing? Why is it at 53?
  • R
    Why is $53? When at SEC they said that.
    What is the purchase price?
    Nuance is being acquired by Microsoft for $56 per share in an all-cash transaction valued at $19.7 billion, inclusive of Nuance’s net debt.
  • O
    did anyone here own Nuance when it was Speechworks?
    I did back in 1999 right after it IPO'd.
    back then it was trading in the $40-$90 range, in the tech bubble.
    if I still held, I dont think I would be too happy with this buy-out premium.
