The packages were always the most valuable use for them, although making less uses for it may lower the demand thereby lowering the market price.

How much higher did they go up in value after the merger? SPG has always been worth a lot.

No one could answer this as there is no real answer. UR should have a better rate, Both options are the same for selling.
