Hello Fools,

I've only started investing a little while ago and I happened to buy a couple of ILMN shares back in 2011. Yesterday, my online broker sends me an email saying that "A TENDER OFFER for ILLUMINA, INC. has been made by CKH ACQUISITION CORPORATION" (which is a subsidiary of ROCHE HOLDING). I am required to "submit instructions" by Feb 22nd - and frankly I have no clue what that means.

I get the general idea of a shareholder rights plan - but I am not sure what kind of instructions I am supposed to submit.

Can anyone help?
