    sentence transformation

    Does it make sense to transform

    It's too late to send anything off to shareholders

    into

    Nothing can still be sent to shareholders?

    Re: sentence transformation

    The 2nd sentence leaves a lot to be desired.

    It's too late to send anything to the shareholders.
    Nothing can be sent to the shareholders already.

    Still the 2nd sentence doesn't look too good.

    Still the 2nd sentence doesn't look too good. I agree. Maybe: "Nothing more can (or "may" depending on intent/context) be sent to the shareholders at this time"
