I have 2 questions that I don't get... What do u mean the closing of business?... And what does the mitam thing have to do with this? I don't mean to come off as rude..I'm really confused. Thank you!
You don’t come off as rude love!
You might have heard of it as end of day or close of play - basically it means the end of the day in terms of business (really it refers to the financial market). (I assumed it was 5pm in terms of GMT (UK time) but Wiki says 5.30pm)
So basically, if NDAs had 29th Sept as an ending date, they would expire at the close of business (rather than at midnight or whatever) so IF the boys had an NDA that ended today - Seacrest was 4pm UK time so he’d still be bound but IF (it’s a big if) that expired at 5/5.30pm, the later interviews he wouldn’t be bound by the NDA. Does that make sense?
(Regarding MITAM - are you referring to the post about Niall’s tweet?
Basically, people have been speculating that some clause was in place for the duration of a year after MITAM. It just so happens that Niall tweeted one year ago today that MITAM was completely finished, and it’s yet another one of those coincidences that it happened to be today Niall could release his single.)
I hope all this made sense. Happy1days was speculating but I think she’s not sure about it, but it certainly is curious.
