This idea was offered by Jed.
PCO was covered on the site before (see here) and this trade relates to the same going private transaction (through 100-1 Reverse Split). The only difference is that recently management increased the cash-out price for the odd-lot shares from $6.55 to $6.73.
Odd-lots have a chance to pick up $31 dollars from the sidewalk.
If transaction get's cancelled, shares are unlikely to drop as company already trades below cash on the balance sheet.
- Book Value per share - $8.54
- Cash per share - $7.65
- Cash out price - $6.73
So larger shareholders like Executive Chairman McCaw (through Eagle River which owns 35% and has voting power on 70%) are clearly interested in cashing out smaller shareholders below cash value of shares. Which increases the likelihood of transaction going through.
