I currently own a small stake of stock (in my 401K) for a company that may be getting ready to be taken private in a leveraged buy out. What happens to current shareholders in that situation? Will we be compelled to give up their shares? Is there a good online guide to how this type of purchase normally impacts existing shareholders?
