Ahhh ok, so they crossed out 1.7 million shares. The buyer, possibly a trader or broker, shorts the stock, covers with crossed shares, pockets the difference. Not a huge amount of money. For 2weeks work, they possibly pocketed 40, 50k. Have a boat-load of free trading to off load if a "pump" does occur, not bad. Add the past funding stock to the mix, the market will need to be strong to absorb millions of free trading shares if the owners decide to sell. Hope those drill results are good. X
