Someone asked me today how options work when a company is purchased.If someone has options to buy 1000 shares of a stock at $10, and the company is being purchased in an all stock deal of 2 shares for every one share, then what does the new option look like? Is it typically a simple division and multiplication - in this case you end up with options to buy 2000 shares of the new stock at $5?
