    This denial sounds familiar. We heard it about the FTC swarming in too. Then they did.

    You have any examples of CNBC making up a story based on a source of its own that also matches several other news organizations who also had their own sources?

    The market assigns the value not a Chapter 11 deal.

    $1.295 billion I believe would be the strike price. In other for the warrants to be worth $77.7 million, the post-bankruptcy stock would need to be double $1.295 billion.
