Looking at the 13F filings that were due last week, I am a little bit more upbeat of our chances to defeat this buyout attempt.


Top 6 Shareholders as of 03/31/2014


GLG 3.5 million

Glenhill 2 million

York Capital 1.88 million

Pentwater 1.7 million

SG Americas 1.1 million

Marshall Wace .93 million


Top 6 Shareholders as of 12/31/2013


Pentwater 4 million

Glenhill 2 million

PineRiver 1.7 million

Group One .9 million

Wolverine .8 million

Renaissance Tech .7 million


Interesting that Pentwater (an arb firm) went from 4 million to 1.7 million shares. PineRiver (another arb) went from 1.7 million to Zero. Wolverine (arb firm) went from .8 million to .3 million. All of these numbers are current as of 03/31/2014, so between that date and the record date (05/05/2014), any or all of these firms may have increased or decreased their holdings.

I'm hoping that most of these arb firms got rocked on the last buyout vote, and that many did not want to test the waters again. Our shareholder base is stronger than ever this time around. I just wish management and the "Special" Committee cared about the unaffiliated owners of this company.

Has anybody obtained the shareholder list?

I plan on submitting my SEC complaint later this afternoon.
