If it’s a cash buy out, you’ll be out of luck though on taxes (they will be essentially buying your shares from you forcefully). I don’t think the deal will be much cash, I think it will involve stock and some future payments. But hey, I’m up for owning a bit of any company who is pushing amarin and really growing it. With 15-20 bil in yearly sales, that would even boost Pfizer’s pps by double digit %!
