Wow, out of curiosity I dug into this for a few minutes and quickly realized I'm not going to be much help...

Here's the best information I could find...

If this wasn't an OTC stock (or if it was an OTC stock that filed with the SEC), you could normally find information regarding the company and/or spinoffs on the SEC EDGAR site (http://www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml). Oftentimes, the company will file a form S-1 or a Form 10 prior to a spinoff. Here's an example of a Form 10 that Hanesbrands (HBI) filed prior to their spinoff from Sara Lee (SLE). They later updated it several times.

If you're interested in spinoffs, I'd read through Joel Greenblatt's "You Can Be a Stock Market Genius". It's a great book about spinoffs (amongst other things) and investing in general. He's also got some recommended books for furthering your education. You could do a lot worse than starting with his book as an intro to spinoffs and investing in general. I've also found the articles at www.spinoffadvisors.com to be good sources of additional examples of spinoff investing in practice.

I have no clue on the restricted stocks and why they are priced at $55.10. Outside my realm of experience. Sorry!

Jim
