We refer to this as “proration.” Stockholders who beneficially own “odd-lots” (less than 100 shares in the aggregate) of CBS Class B common stock and who validly tender all their shares will not be subject to proration (other than participants who hold odd-lot shares as a participant in the Savings Plans)...
  • Market Neutral Option: One can short can equal amount of CBSO shares to 'lock-in' your 7.5% gain and not be subject to the market movement of CBS.
