Author: Ryan Short Link: http://www.houseoffusion.com/groups/cf-stock/thread.cfm/threadid:1#1 The letter was regarding the shareholder rights plan, which really has nothing to do with the merger, the rights plan was announced near the middle of december, we are just now getting the letter explaining it. I don't know if will even apply anymore since soon there will be no ALLR shareholders, just MACR shareholders.

Author: Marc Funaro Short Link: http://www.houseoffusion.com/groups/cf-stock/thread.cfm/threadid:1#4 HELP!  I need to make sure I am understanding this thread... If I own 155 shares of ALLR, currently trading at $9 per share, using the formula just provided below: Current total shares value: 9*155 = $1395.00 9-3 = $6 per ALLR share 5*6=$30 per share 30 * 155 = $4650.00 new total shares value?? No way... really?  What am I missing?  Keep in mind it's really late and I have been writing code for TOO LONG.  Be nice. ;) Marc Correction: 5*(ALLR - $3) = MACR ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more ----- ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Structure your ColdFusion code with Fusebox.

Author: Arun Rajarao Short Link: http://www.houseoffusion.com/groups/cf-stock/thread.cfm/threadid:1#6 We all wish this was the case! The way it works is: Your value today : 155 * 9 = 1395 If prices stood still till the day the merger goes through, on that day: You wouldnt have any ALLR stock, your 155 ALLR will be converted to 155*0.2 = 31 shares of MACR which will be worth 31*31.62 = 980.22 They are giving cash of $3/share, so you get 155*3 = 465 So your value is 465+980 = 1445 So you will be gaining 1445 - 1395 = $50. Say the day of the merger, MACR becomes 50. Then your value on that day is: 31*50 = 1550 155*3 = 465 Total Value = 1550+465 = 2015 Hope this helps ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more ----- ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Structure your ColdFusion code with Fusebox.

Author: Chris Montgomery Short Link: http://www.houseoffusion.com/groups/cf-stock/thread.cfm/threadid:1#8 Marc, Well, there's *always* the element of speculation with stocks like Allaire's, especially in unsettled times like this with people taking a wait and see attitude about the pending merger. But, to answer your question, you might want to keep an eye on your cost basis (if you've only purchased ALLR once), or your average cost (if you've purchased more than once). If you can pick up shares below (or *substantially* below) your cost basis/average cost, then it might not be a bad deal. So, if your cost basis is $9, look to buy if it drops below that (frankly, I don't think it will move a whole lot between now and the merger unless the whole NASDAQ moves significantly). Also, keep an eye on MACR's share price and expect to see ALLR move up or down with MACR as we approach the merger date. If MACR drops, ALLR will probably drop some too. Just my opinion, I'm not a professional trader.  Good luck!

Tomorrow someone is going to buy ALLR in the expectation that the price is going to go up. That means, that someone (the seller, in case you didn't figure yet) will be equally convinced that the price is going to go down. This sobering observation was brought to you... laszlo :-) Marc Funaro wrote: ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more ----- ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Structure your ColdFusion code with Fusebox.
