Well - that certainly makes more sense. Nonetheless, the Fool article stated (and I'm just pasting the extracted text directly, not interpreting):

"Genesys shareholders will be given 1.667 Alcatel American depositary shares (ADS) for one Genesys share...Each Alcatel ADS is worth one-fifth of an Alcatel share."

That's how I came up with the math.

What does that mean to you?
