Q: I have never liked the "bought deal" type financings that seem to be the way things are done in Canada, but I have to admit that as a holder of DOO watching the steep sell-off after the recent secondary offering priced in US$ was no fun. TD was offering the shares to clients with the price "TBD within the context of the market". The shares dropped about 15% in the days following the announcement when the issue was priced. Can you briefly explain how the pricing is determined for offerings such as this one. Do they simply wait for the market reaction and then set the price where the shares end up on the pricing date? What are the sellers and buyers obligations? Can the sellers just change their mind if the market reacts too harshly and say "thanks but no thanks, we will keep our holdings rather than sell at a 15% discount?
