Excellent analysis by _D_ and I very much agree with it.  Indeed,  it looks as if Vitol made that offer to stop the bleeding of SLG's share price.  In fact Vitol even mention in its press release: " Vitol Anker is prepared to immediately enter into further discussions with the Company to provide additional interim financing for the period whilst the Offer is outstanding."
 

I will be interesting to see what unfolds...
