  1. Has anyone ever been involved with, or been a party to, taking a public business private?
    Why would a company want to do this?
    What are the benefits, drawbacks, etc?

  2. 1) You wouldn't have to deal with shareholders anymore.
    2) You can actually maintain a long-term view and not be obsessed with shorter-term earnings performance.
    3) You won't be affected by bearish speculation.
    4) There can be less oversight. :cool:
  3. That's what I keep telling Lloyd, but ya think anyone listens to me. Naw, that Nutmeg is a putzorino.
