Happy, happy, happy.

Those Clear shareholders ought to be pretty stoked. Made four times the original offer and got bought out of a failing investment at the same time. Sweet deal if you ask me. Smile
Original offer was $2.97/share. The final purchase price is $5.00/share so definitely not 4x the original offer; hell, not even 2x. Still a good deal for all involved though.
