Sorry, I'm out of town and have had trouble getting on line. You should really do the math. They have to pay you off by the time your options expire, mid-July, or sooner. You won't get 21 if you sell in the open market, so you have to figure out which is better for you.|
I had no way of knowing when they'd pay me off, so that's why I did it this way; my options had years to run.
I ended up selling most of the shares today, ended up with 1500 shares. I didn't sell and I could keep them till they take them, or could sell them next week. I sold the rest at 20-31/32.
