Thanks, Grayfuldad.

I got my prospectus, too, over the weekend. It appears that GSB presented testimony showing damages of .9 to 1.9 billion dollars; it did not say what, if anything, the government evidence of damages was.

I wouldn't say these warrants are a gamble; it is just a very different type of investment. Asia, inflation, and a bunch of factors are not going to impact the value of these, it is going to be legal factors which, if provided enough information, a Fool could make an educated assessment of. Or maybe a Fool with a JD or some background in law. Definitely a risky investment, since they could be worthless, but I know people who bought Marvel and KooKooRoo. :^D

The other factor is when they pay, if they pay? The present trading value could be a fairly good assessment of the net present value of the expected pay off.
