About the only positive I can think of is that the new company may attract some analyst attention. So, with a $.03 divvy, I don't see SGL spending a lot of time under $3.00. If you think the deal will go through, CHX and PCE trade at a slight discount to AVF, even accounting for the .07 divvy AVF holders will receive before the deal closes. If the deal doesn't close, I really don't want to own the remains of AVF.
This is now a bigger tax-loss candidate.
I'm really unhappy with this. PKI says buying Elbow River will add $.13 in earnings.
This grinch's heart is not growing three times larger.
