Hi All,

My apologies if this isn't the right place for this posting.

Just curious if anyone out there knows what typically happens to accumulated employee stock options after the employee's company has been taken over. Are the options transferred to the new stock, or are they just wiped out??? If they are transferred, is this typically good for the stock or bad?

Many thanks in advance,
