try investor relations

All they tell you is talk to your tax advisor. That's why I tried here. P's board has not had a post since takeover in 5/12.

For cost basis on Schedule D, I allocated my basis in P's stock ($11,500) for the $7,000 cash reported on the 1099B based on the ratio between the cash and total of what I received - $13,000. i.e, 7/13 x 11500. I feel this is correct, but I cannot figure out a cost basis for my M stock.
