Long-time shareholder.....one possible reason.....they are going to raise some of the money via equity and when they have done this in the past, they have made sure that their investors get a 'good deal'.....if this is the reason, let's hope they don't get too carried away.    Old syndrome....institutions get the gold and investors, at least temporarily, get the shaft,......bstards...... lol.
