The pre-equilibrium proton induced emission of light complex nuclei with energies in the continuum has been studied comprehensively for many years. Double-differential cross sections and especially analyzing power distributions are typical of an intranuclear nucleon-nucleon multistep statistical re-
action mechanism. The final stage of the reaction may be a result of a direct
pickup or knockout of the ejectile. The discussion on this subject continues to
be a hot topic for theoretical and experimental investigations. In the talk will be discussed the interplay between the knockout and pickup mechanisms as final step of the pre-equilibrium reaction and its dependence on the energy in the incident channel.
