  1. Hello. Im new here so I apologize in advance if this forum is not the correct place to post this question. But…

    Regarding LEAP OTM Options and Twitter going private. What happens to them? For instance, I bought jan 2025 75.00 calls a while back before the drama and Mr. Musk.

    Admittedly, I wasn’t paying much attention and must have been living under a rock because I ignored the fact that the company was going private.

    Thanks for you time.



    1. Hi Bob, if you have not sold out your LEAPS CALL before the company goes private, then it will expire worthless. The acquisition and delisting simply shorten the expiration date to the current date.
