Interesting sidebar since convexity of Viterra is 1.95, model price increased from $16.32 to $18.66 because of the price movement of the stock price subsequent to the announcement that suitors were interested in purchasing the company. This is a small example how an increasing stock price helps the valuation of the enterprise as a whole.
