Abstract

Shea offers three main criticisms of our article. These relate to the legal status of subscription receipts, the relevance of post-crash trading data and the appropriate treatment of counterparty risk. In sections i-iii we refute Shea's arguments, and in section iv we suggest some further areas for research.
