Price has gone down? Yes. Business has gone down? No. Record revenue last year and forecasted for record revenue again this year (with improved EBITDA). Market cap the same? No. There hasn't been any dilution since they did a secondary in 2011 at $3 a share. There likely won't be any dilution in the future since they secured a loan from Fifth Third for $50m, which cut their interest expense in half. Option awards do not seem overly excessive and most are currently worthless at the moment anyway.
In regards to record revenue the problem is that expenses have been increasing even more and thus lower profits.
Based on performance anyone receiving stock options at $0 is stealing from the sharehodlers.
If this were a widely held/followed stock based on its performance especially relative to the S&P 500 Index (or small cap index, etc.) we would have long ago seen management run out of town on a rail. It is a mystery as to why, other than a few 'letters' to management, the larger shareholders have sat on their thumbs.
Why no action on the MDTV acquisition? On the CC Mandel boasted that the financing was in place. If that is the case then why has he not moved forward on it? Hard to believe that MDTV is delaying because they have debt coming due that they can't pay off.....if MBND does not acquire them then they will go bankrupt.
Why is it when other companies announce acquisitions they can guesstimate (i.e. pro forma financial statements) the effect on revenue, earnings, etc. They can also give a guesstimate of cost saving synergies.
