i guess question now is if you own ans shares to sell rights in open market or exercise them.  if you dont own ans shares to either buy the shares outright or buy rights to exercise, probably depends on the arb between ans sp and the rights sp.  good to see brookfield guarteeing backtopping the rights, in essence guarteeing the 175M being raised??   at 2.60, looks not bad a discount to current sp for this way of getting rid of most if not all the debt of the company.  now let see if the rights can get into my account and start trading as i try best to decide what to do till then.
