i wonder if the share price will now skyrocket to the levels SC is at the moment ? (£16ish or USD$24ish)

but that would only happen if sc actaully offered that per owned bunia share

so i wonder what they will offer per share ?

Maybe not. Warka and SC were going to hopefully merge in 2011, and maybe it is on the table again. The link given for this article might be a newer one, I hope.

Oh My!!! I doubt they will let you have that much...just go stand in line, it forms right beside the "dinar get rich scheme" line. Take your sleeping bag & plenty of food and water, it's now become your new residence.

There are no scenario's like that in iraq, it's corrupt...all the profits are stolen off the top. It's a mirror image of the US, unless you hold a political position, or have inside deals with the gov't, you're screwed. Now go back to work and pay your taxes!!! The lawmakers need a vacation on your dime.

Hey Beluga, You've been here long enough to know that there is very little that can be believed or relied upon when it comes to articles out of Iraq. You've also been here long enough to know that no-one knows anything and if proper news breaks people here will be all over it. Quit asking 'are we there yet' - when we are, you'll know all about it.
