Why not release a statement regarding the non-payment issue, and don't tell me it's earning period silence as a lot of companies fine operational and pre-announce. I sold for my first loss this year. Might jump back in depending on the release and cc.
The federal securities laws do not define the term "quiet period," which is also referred to as the "waiting period." However, a quiet period extends from the time a company files a registration statement with the SEC until SEC staff declare the registration statement "effective." During that period, the federal securities laws limit what information a company and related parties can release to the public. The failure to comply with these restrictions generally is referred to as “gun-jumping.”
