since your 140 is approved you can file for 8thyear extension on your h1b1, and have your new employer file for a perm labor and get the full course done thru them.

Since your company was bought over by the new one I am not sure if they would "inherit" your case as a sponsor if they do then you have to wait till the dates become current to file for your 485.

good luck

No problem. Since your I140 is clear, the new company can apply 3 more years H1B ext. for you (Do it every 3 years). All application LC, I140 could be carried over to new company (They just need to send update)

Talk to your attorney to find out if you can file 485 by 09/30. If so, you are good and will get your EAD soon. If not, theny you have long wait.
