Good question. I would assume the parties involved have the necessary capital, or access to credit. Perhaps they would prefer to make it a "leveraged" buyout and offer loan guarantees to the China Bank if the interest rate was favorable. We'll probably never know for sure.

Looks to me like it's a done deal. As you stated, hopefully with a small premium to the origional offer. Yongye is my last China stock. I guess I shouldn't complain as I bought my core position in steps around 4 years ago at an average price of a little over two dollars a share. I've lost a ton of money though, buying longest term slightly in the money options and rolling them over (and over and over) waiting for the price increase that never came while the stock kept drifting lower. Finally gave up and let them expire this year before the buyout offer.

In the chance that the buyout offer doesn't go through, and they eventually end up being delisted due to conflict with the SEC and the Chinese govt, does anyone know what would happen to the shareholders?
