Hey Jimayer,

A previous Stock Adviser publication ("Learn From a Master; Our New Best Buys Now" - February 10, 2012) talks a little bit about the tender offer and what the options are for current shareholders. After reading up a bit more on the whole topic, I realized that, like YoTrading said, it makes no sende whatsoever to participate in the $44.50/share offer.

I believe that ILMN will either receive a higher bid or will do just fine on its own - so I'm holding on to my shares.

As for the email I got: I submitted my reply saying "I do not want to participate in the offer". Haven't heard back since then.

We'll see :-)
