Is to raise a hundred million dollars in equity capital but that's not gonna get the job done he doesn't see -- -- out -- do you agree with that characterization.
I think it's it's tough but you know I do feel there's a lot of value in the businesses there especially in the broker relationships but I I do feel that there are probably buyers -- it.
-- hundred million dollars in equity I still see -- happening on the public market so -- have to do -- with -- private and very private would be interested to hear diluting existing shareholders even more but I feel that you know they've got.
You know very very tight window to try and sell this thing but they're probably are buyers in the probably already in discussion with -- yes I have not today already.

Interactive brokers Cantor Fitzgerald Jefferies and Credit Suisse.
Yeah they're the six -- listed but you know effects since that is bothers also potentially at a price the companies that might be president of space that are already.
-- -- in trading I think you've seen news headlines already and sourcing the super -- top -- -- or some of those guys that have moved increasingly into the market making space is -- up there another group that I didn't even less but I think that bigger.

But the biggest RA is made -- -- it should be a little bit better capitalized are.
The bigger story is you know is -- clients are as a prop trading -- you know when you have such a dearth of liquidity in the markets.
You know -- kind of you know if you.
A few miscellaneous program errors -- run out or whatever was the -- but you know -- come drives this distortion and the underlying stock prices so.
You know they'll need a bigger classes -- will be revisited at a later time but in terms of his or counterparty risk is our.
More systemic issues I -- don't think so I mean this trade.
If they think they -- their off says there Don there without there's no open source there's not clients that -- -- -- -- anything like that that the officer Don and markdown yeah what you but I nothing at our.

What they -- -- a press release that it was a software glitch they installed some software that you know obviously there was a problem with that they've removed did and and that's the source the problems at that because Charlie Gasparino was saying earlier that there's a lot of people that think there's more to destroy what do you think.
And -- this could be anything snow could be programmed error it could mean profit could be science -- it could mean that he's paying and you know I think I think actually to have to kind of right now.
