With the cash I received for Color Imaging and Mercury Air Group, I went shopping today for a new opportunity. I went over to my list of current going private transactions in the Contributors’ Corner section of Fat Pitch Financials. Here’s what I found on the current going private transactions list:

I purchased 85 shares of Lynch Interactive (LIC) for $25.70 per share for a total cost of $2,191.45. Hopefully, I will receive at least $2,465 in cash for within two months for my 85 shares of Lynch Interactive.
