If you purchase MRKL today, you are able to receive the shares of TCNH since an ex-dividend date has not yet been declared... at least that's the way I am reading it. Per the release: "Because the NASD has not yet declared an ex-dividend date, any shares of Markland common stock outstanding on the record date (May 1, 2006) that are (or have been) traded after the record date but before the ex-dividend date are (or have been) traded with the right to receive the Technest dividend shares. Shares of Markland common stock traded on or after the ex-dividend date shall be traded without the right to receive any Technest dividend shares." I would think that this would be a big incentive for investors to buy MRKL at this price. Am I wrong?
