same here, it however, had been the untouted container shipping company, probably because it was under 5 year public and they have to have 5-year history on dividends for even the high divie sites. I chose it over all the competition because of their growth and decent dividend. So sad. But is it really going private? Same management and a standalone company. Afraid I never read the proxy, was too big of company to bother to read it over to vote.
