    No details and it's up to a year away so your guess is as good as mine.

    So they put out a customer letter which you'll have seen if you are a customer.

    They are not asking you how much you would bid to buy the company or a share of the company although I'm sure you could feel free to make an approach to buy the whole business, if that's something you have the means to do. I'm not sure their announcement qualifies as "testing the waters". Nor that it deserves a "good grief" [/shrug]
