"Second and more importantly - in my initial quick read, I didn't realize that DEI shareholders would actually receive the CQE shares directly. Question for the longs but am I the only one who is disappointed by this?"

 

I read this the opposite way Zad.  Management is typically more than happy to grab cash any way they can.  By them giving these shares directly to shareholders that tells me they are confident in their position going forward. 

 

Are we noticing how Anonymous is the biggest buyer today.  Who do you suppose that could be? :)
