On 12/3/15 Company shareholders of a company in Florida USA, voted to be acquired by a company in Nova Scotia, and the merger will take place in 2016.
I was not in favor of this. This will be strictly a cash buyout, leaving me, and all other of the Florida shareholders with cash only.
As far as I can see, all this does for me is trigger a tax event where I will have to pay short term capital gains in Tax Year 2016. The Florida company will cease to exist. There will be no stock acquisition for the Florida shareholders, cash only.
This doesn't seem like a good deal to me, but that's history.
What are my options, if any, in how to deal with a buyout that forced me to sell, and accept cash only for my Florida USA company shares?
