Canadians apparently hate risk.
They're hedging "an economic exposure resulting from client
transactions." Does that mean "We're heavily invested in Linux
so we want to balance a possible future SCO license bill with
a SCO profit windfall"?
Maybe they have another $50 million invested in Porcine Aviation
LLC just in case.
I'm still wondering about the $1.6 million in Exhibit 99.2 here:
The obvious explanation is that it's the commission on $8
million in non-Sun, non-IBM SCOsource revenue.
