Under the terms of the proposed transaction, SureWest shareholders may elect to exchange each share of SureWest common stock they own for either $23.00 in cash or shares of Consolidated common stock having an equivalent value based on average trading prices for the 20-day period ending two days before the closing of the acquisition, subject to a collar.
