Because the next quarter is year end, they have until mid March to file their next report. Therefore, there is actually more than 4 months between now and then.

However, today's earnings release does say:

The Company intends to update the market in early January 2013 on collections as of year-end 2012.

I really have no idea if the special committee could accept an offer in the next two months. It's certainly possible. I would hope that they would wait for Q4 to be finalized, but who knows. If they require a shareholder vote, there's no way that would happen prior to the January update.

I suspect that a lot of payments from the slower customers for Q3 shipments will probably not be paid until Q1 2013 so they still wouldn't show up in the January update (although $ for many Q2 shipments to these types of customers would hopefully have been received by then).
