The Wall Street Journal reported that two of the investors from china dropped from the deal after the securities and exchange commission sought more details from the participants about their bid. https://www.wsj.com/articles/two-chinese-firms-bidding-for-chicago-exchange-withdraw-from-controversial-deal-1507923339 . It looks like three actually dropped now as the residential entity in chinatown, NY is no longer listed as an investor by CHX. Why would they drop unless they had something to hide, and all three at the same time? It seems highly suspicious that bona-fide investors would drop out of such a big potential transaction as the result of being posed a few questions by the SEC.
