MANDA Fund Update: Tumbleweed Communications (TMWD) Merger Announced Today

For all of you following the MANDA Fund (see Portfolios under Blog Resources), the Sopra Group earlier today announced today that they acquired Tumbleweed Communications (TMWD) for $2.70 per share in cash. Apparently the deal passed the Exon-Florio review process. This stock was added to the portfolio on August 15th at a price of $2.52 per share, giving us a 7% return on the transaction for an annualized return of around 130%. Not bad for our first completed trade!

Note: If you own this stock, it may take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks for the transaction to be settled and the cash to be deposited into your brokerage account. Contact your broker for further details.
