Did you know?

The term hostile takeover refers to the acquisition of one company by another corporation against the wishes of the former. The company being acquired in a hostile takeover is called the target company while the one executing the takeover is called the acquirer. In a hostile takeover, the acquirer goes directly to the company's shareholders or fights to replace management to get the acquisition approved. Approval of a hostile takeover is generally completed through either a tender offer or a proxy fight.

Incontrovertible Proof that BBBY is Undergoing a Fundamental Transaction

u/Region-Formal used a big word that we weren't familiar with, so we asked Chat GPT the meaning:

These Exhibits and Schedules in the annex section of the 8-K - which have still not fully publicly released - are nonetheless incontrovertible proof that BBBY is undergoing, or has already undergone, a "Fundamental Transaction" i.e. Spin-Off, M&A, or both.

So, what does all this mean? Well, who better than the author to share one last thought:

Tldr; bullish!
