Market news: Alludo's $2.15/sh bid for Nitro Software failed to get up after the scheme was voted down. The scheme vote was basically DOA, as Potentia Capital (the other suitor) effectively owned enough stock to block the deal.

Potentia's been trying to break into a few datarooms over the last few months. Having finally made their way into Tyro's, they may now also have a better chance of getting into Nitro's.
