This seems like the appropriate board to ask my question.

How does treasury stock get treated during a takeover?

If it is friendly or a management buyout I would suspect that the board of directors would just retire the shares and there would be no adjustment.

However, if it is a hostile takeover by an outside entity, would the treasury shares need to be 'purchased' before the company was completely bought out? If this is not the case, is there ever a time when an adjustment needs to be taken for treasury stock?
