    The Real Blake
    Apparently the current ruling is that all shareholders participate, although this is under appeal.

    An appeal has been filed, oral arguments scheduled for November. The appeal is that the only beneficiaries of the settlement should be shareholders prior to the original action instead of all current shareholders. This has already been addressed and settled but is now under appeal in hopes of overturning the ruling, and dare I say attorneys collecting more money.

    Many people apparently misunderstand a shareholder derivative action. The CURRENT shareholders of RENN benefit from the announced settlement, as of whatever date the court determines. That date will be sometime around the time of the court hearing of December 9, 2021. The current shareholders, will be paid by the settling defendants, Chen, OPI and Duff and Phelps, who will not benefit from the settlement. So in order to figure out how much current shareholders get, you subtract all of the shares Chen and his associated defendants own (which is close to 33%) and the remaining defendants get the $300 million, less legal fees and expenses. Even if the lawyers get $100 million, the payout to remaining shareholders will be close to $25-26, and they will still own shares in RENN, which may be worth $1 or $2. The $.859 per share settlement amount is for the underlying shares. The RENN ADR's are 45 shares. So its .859 times 45, or approximately 38.66. minus legal fees.
    So it is not a short at $25.

    I think it's a very safe buy under $25, as the $25 is just about gauranteed.

    Can't post the article, but apparently through this Chinese site, the SEC is looking into this and is delaying the transaction. Anyone have back up to this?

The record date will be December 20, 2021 and Pay-Date of December 30, 2021. The Fund will make an announcement on or about December 21, 2021 with the distribution rate per share, if any.

    Also, Chen has basically spelled out where this stock will be trading for the next couple of weeks. Figure somewhere between $8.25 to $10.15. Of course it could spike higher or dip lower at times. If we, the investors, have to pay taxes on dividends then it would be wise to sell our stock at $8.25 or higher. There is no advantage or upside at this point. What are the possibilities that RENN will succeed? I would like to see a quarterly report before the May 16 so I can make a better decision.

    Oh my god. People spent $25 per share for a reward of $0.859701 per share,

    They must be confused $38.6866 per ADS share which can be converted to 45 RENN ordinary shares.

    If the settlement is approved and the direct payment is made to those who owned the stock before the Record date (which will probably be sometime in 2018) the recently new shareholders will realize that they won't get any funds and this will go back to where it was a few days ago. jmho
