I don’t have much time to comment much on this merger right now, so I will just go ahead and post what I consider to be the final AAMRQ conversion formula:
AAMRQ stakeholders officially receive 544.4 million AAL shares. Each AAL share is worth an LCC share. Using the approximate number of AAMRQ shares outstanding 335.5 million, and the approximate debt of $8 billion, the share conversion formula is:
AAMRQ = (LCC*544.4 – 8,000) / 335.5 = LCC * 1.623 – $23.85
At the current LCC price of $22.5, each AAMRQ share should be worth $12.67 after the conversion.
Edited 12/12/13: I have posted a detailed explanation of the conversion formula and equity distribution plan here: http://hiepsfinance.com/2013/12/10/aamrq-aal-final-conversion-formula-and-equity-distribution-plan-explained/
