Hey, doesn't anyone out there care about this buyout from Nisource? Look at this:

In rejecting NiSource's offer again on July 5, Columbia discussed the value it provides to shareholders. As support for its decision, Columbia offered only one measure of its recent performance. Its calculations present a 258 percent rate of return since January 1, 1995-- an annualized rate of 33.5 percent. What they neglect to tell you is that they used the depressed levels at which Columbia traded during its bankruptcy proceedings as the base for these estimates. Recalculated off of other periods, the numbers tell a different story.
