    Earnings Report??

    JLL is in bigger trouble than people seem to be
    indicating. Here is how I see it:

    1 - JLL has taken-on
    a large amount of debt with each acquisition. They
    need to reduce these debt levels;

    2 - To reduce
    debt they can either use operating cashflow or do an
    equity offering;

    3 - Due to integration problems
    with the merge, JLL has negative operating cashflow.
    As for an equity offering, what kind of message is
    management sending to the street if they issue stock at
    these levels? If the stock rebounds at all, insiders
    will provide enough selling pressure that the company
    is not likely to get an equity offering
    done.

    In short, things are going to get a lot worse before
    they get better. If the integration problems persist,
    cash is going to be tight & solvency could be an
    issue.

    Insiders are selling. Institutional
    investors aren't interested. Creditors are nervious. As for
    the common shareholders, . . . . . . .
