One question I have is whether or not Allied could survive in the market without new capital. The insurance market is very competitive and there are too many companies chasing a no-growth consumer marketplace. Seems to me this may be a very good deal for the shareholders and the ESOP, whose values may triple by my calculations. Since they hold a bunch of the stock, the employees may take the offer. Wouldn't you?
