Dear all, it's depends on how valuable retail investors think their stocks are! Our stock is very valuable unless you sell it cheap. Otherwise, the competition between the two can indeed create limit up.
But it seems that the financial team of Prolexus is too weak, and it is not aware of other people's sniping, and it seems that there is no idea how to defend and reverse the situation these days. This CFO should be replaced.
Once successfully acquired, it is not necessarily the end for Uncle Lau, the game can also be another new beginning. It's purely up to him and his team. Really can't say too much, some strategies are not strategies if they are said in advance. So some friends who PM me, based on protecting the rights of Prolexus and I can't answer your questions, so sorry.
Warrants are indeed another battlefield, and one that retail investors ignore. But they did not forget. This is one of Prolexus' strengths, but it's not the most powerful weapon which they have. Trust them not to forget what they have, right? a little worried.
The shareholder equity plan, the "poison pill", is one of the defenses measure of Mr. Lau, former major shareholder of Prolexus to protect the company.
This is also Twitter's current defenses measure to against Musk's acquisition.

Leveraged buyout where small fish eat big fish. Acquirers often use only a small amount of their own funds, and raising funds mainly by issuing junk bonds to acquire target companies. Once the acquisition is successful, the acquirer can repay the creditors by acquiring the assets of the target company.

Although Prolexus has been eliminated by NIKE, we can analyze the entire market trend based on the world economic and the operation of these brands such as NIKE and UA.
In the near term, active wear retails dealing with unprecedented macro headwinds: inventory levels, FX movements, European consumer that's now under incredible pressure.
In late June, Nike stock slumped further after issuing single-digit revenue growth expectations for the full-year 2023. Expected Nike to lower growth estimates, citing the company still battling a strengthening US dollar and inventories remaining high across North America.
Nike's overall inventory dollars in North America were up 44% in its most recent quarter. I think inventory levels will remain high, seen that in the channel play itself out in very heavy apparel promotions throughout the sector. And whether it's Nike, Adidas, Under Armour — everyone's been a bit more promotional recently. With inflation remaining near 40-year highs, the lower- and middle-income consumer is under a lot of inflationary pressure.
All of this means that sales are sluggish, and brand owners are digesting inventory, and will naturally stop placing orders, which in turn may cause garment factories to shrink orders by as much as 50% to 70%.
The recovery of the entire market is not optimistic and may not show light until the second half of 2023.
