    great news. 85% win is not quite North Korean landslide territory, but it's close!

    Does anyone have any idea when the missed preferred distributions will be declared or paid? Covenants precluded any distribution for both common and preferred shareholders during this shareholder led action. Now that it's been settled and Zell & associates are in charge, will they immediately reinstate the payments, or ????
