What is the present status of New Valley Corporation?

In December 2005, Vector Group Ltd. (NYSE: VGR) completed an exchange offer and subsequent short-form merger whereby it acquired the remaining 42.3% of the common shares of New Valley Corporation that it did not already own. As result of these transactions, New Valley Corporation became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vector Group Ltd. and each outstanding New Valley Corporation common share was exchanged for 0.514 shares of Vector Group Ltd.’s common stock.
