I believe that it still has to be formally accepted by the shareholders. Earlier today the share price actualy dropped below the offer price after the rival bidder pulled out.

I fail to understand Fred's quote regarding lunatics taking over the asylum. Is he questioning the good Sheik's sanity, if so on what grounds?
