Lurker, standard filling requirements is 45 days and that alone has nothing to do with any prolonged halt. First I was inclined to believe that it would not trade till this deal is approved and then start trading post consolidation but this might not hold any water either. The news is fundamentally of material changes and maybe extra time might be needed to digest the news properly. This might hold some truth.
Remember, we were minority holders before. That piece of a small pie is made smaller of a bigger pie. To me it's not Mam that wants Flem properties but rather flem wanting our (s) and maintaining an over majority of the mew company.
