FOWC with Fandango — Morsel

FOWC

It’s September 7, 2022. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “morsel.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

    Ever been in a situation you never thought you would be? Imagine a situation where you are not allowed to eat or drink for your own sake. Imagine going 3 days without food or water, then you will know the value of a morsel of bread.

    A morsel of possible fair news floated by briefly on cable, this afternoon. The announcer and a technology correspondent (Jacob Ward) said Reuters first broke the story that, yesterday, there weren’t enough shareholder votes to affirm (with sixty-five percent) proceeding in high hopes toward the merger in question for a Trump company.

    The SPAC has decreased in value by $150 since October (to <23) — and, meanwhile, Trump Media (which involves the so-called Truth Social or, as I’ll put it, “TS”ers) only has at a high guess about three-and-a-half million followers for the ex-president — whereas, when the Donald was on Twitter, he had almost ninety million followers at some point.

    Digital World Acquisitions Co and the Trump company may have acted illegally on top of all that, and the over billion dollars of retail investors’ money might not go through in the end. A federal investigation is currently ongoing.

    Apparently, there will be a vote tomorrow? But it’s a wish to allow another year of possibility to legally overcome. Below is an article from April. There’s a little bit of article before what I’m quoting and quite a lot of the article after.

    The clock is ticking on Trump Media’s planned merger with Digital World Acquisition, a cash-rich blank-check company that raised nearly $300 million in an initial public offering. If the companies do not complete their merger by Sept. 8 or agree to extend the deadline, Trump Media is in danger of losing out on that money. More significant, investors in a $1 billion private placement to support the merger can pull out if the deal is not completed by Sept. 20.

    Five months is precious little time to complete the merger while also dealing with an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the regulator that must sign off on the deal.

    Digital World disclosed the investigation just a few weeks after announcing the merger plans in October [2021]. The regulator is looking into unusual trading activity in the company’s shares before the announcement and seeking information about potential communications between representatives of the two companies before Digital World, a special purpose acquisition company, or SPAC, went public in September [2021].

    The SEC has requested numerous emails and text messages from individuals involved in the merger talks, said two people briefed on the matter but not authorised to speak publicly.

    The investigation has fueled growing scepticism about the deal’s prospects. Kerrisdale Capital, a prominent short-selling hedge fund — a firm that specialises in betting on a stock’s decline — on [a] Wednesday [in April] issued a 27-page report that predicted the SEC would never sign off on the deal.

    Investor enthusiasm has also dampened: Shares of Digital World fell 17% this week, even after an 8% rally [on a] Friday [in April]. The stock closed at $41, still less than half its $97.54 peak on March 4.
