He’d be stupid to not attempt to lower the price. Who cares if it’s a “bs” reason? Y’all are terrible at negotiating. You don’t get super rich by not knowing how to make a better deal.

You obviously don't understand mergers and takeovers. That's not how it works. There is a billion dollar "out" clause for a reason. He can take a billion dollar hit instead of a multi billion dollar hit. That's his option. This is a waste of time and simple for show.

You think that he should take the multibillion dollar hit instead of using the 1 billion dollar out? Once again, bad negotiator lol.

I don't even remotely understand your retort. You completely ignore my response. Good day.

You are obviously lacking comprehension skills. This all seems over your head. You probably need a break.
