Hi, it began trading in July of 1999, I think, and you rec'd 1 share each of DSS and HDD for each share of Quantum you originally owned. I immediately sold the HDD because I had previously owned Maxtor before they (Maxtor) took it private at a distressed level back in 1996 or so. I don't like the commoditized trading of hard drive stocks because of the earnings volatility. They are like a roller coaster and the competition is incredibly intense. Hope this helps!
