So if you sell now, you're only hurting yourself IMO since you're giving up .10/share that could potentially be $1.50/share. I'd say it is more of a present/expected value type calc - the chance of them hitting each sales target * CVR payment discounted to today @ i%. I think the value is greater than .10/share personally. The option activity has been interesting too - some significant buys on the $7 strike calls leads me to believe that others are expecting an increase whenever the tender offer actually is commenced. I don't believe they have actually filed the paperwork yet, unless I missed something someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I would say that once the closing date nears, the price rises to better price in the risk associated with the CVR payments. Right now, as I mentioned, they are only valued at about .10 (current stock price - cash buyout price). I expect that to increase closer to .50 or more by the deal close date otherwise you could buy one day before the close and for a very small fee (.10) you could have the potential $1.50 in payouts over the next few years. Huge return yes, risky yes, but I think the market will price that more accordingly as the date nears. Depending on each individuals expected probability of Lundbeck hitting sales and personal discount rate, that's when I would say it is time to evaluate if the risk is work the return.
