    • Sounds like you are informed. Do you know if he quit investing and starting thinking about shareholders? Also, how much is the land worth? I have read past SEC filings and see no mention of land. Can you point me to the place. Thanks.

      • the land consists of 29 acres plus a 30000 sq ft building on 5 acres. it was owned by biofor, a subsidiary. it's vacant and in waverly pa (which is boondocksvilleissimo). according to 10-K, it's difficult to sell, written down and will take years to get rid of. what were they thinking? probably some sort of a regional distribution center. oy vay!!
