This is an open forum and everyone who signs up for a password has every right in the world to post whatever he wants. I'm not disputing that. However, if you are indeed a shareholder, believe me when I tell you the wisest course of action is to sit down and write a letter to the front office and the board. I dropped a five-page letter in the mail to management and every single person on the board two weeks ago.
Why a shareholder with a vested interest in the company's success would go to a public forum and trash the company and its officers with incessant flippant remarks is beyond me. Why waste your precious time doing that when you could use up every morsel of that time to sit down and write a letter and address it to the attention of every single board member?
Frustration and disappointment, that's one thing. And I understand that. But these incessant, flippant remarks and Internet hit-jobs on the company and its officers, that's another. If you want to blast someone or question them or be critical of them, then at least give them this much: Put your real name behind it and address it directly to them in a letter so that they can hear you. I assure you, no manager of a publicly traded company is going to give a darn about what someone says anonymously behind the safety and comfort of a message board username.
I don't know what kind of impact writing a letter directly to board members will have. But you can be absolutely sure that at the least you're going to be heard. Some board member in Vancouver or Edmonton has no interest whatsoever in what some yoyo says on a message board or a chat room. I assure you.
PS: This is a company in transition, it absolutely has a healthier balance sheet now and it is officially done with new nat gas exploration. I expect it to purchase some US acreage in 2014 and focus solely on oil from this point forward, while the Singapore-based company drills for NG and NGLs with DEJ claiming additional WI in 2014/2015.
I disagree 100%!
Do you really think that Management cares what you say as an individual or perhaps even 10 or 20 individuals. I have been there and you are wasting your time.
I do believe they monitor the Msg Bd and while they will ignore the 'far out' posters, I believe persistent .complaints or a critical mass will have far impact than a shareholder letter - that most likely will not get by the office secretary!!
I have written this time because I intend to use the NYSE (letter) requirements as a leverage to prevent an 85% sellout. If dejour do not comply then I will take it to the NYSE regularity complaints (and trying to resolve it with dejour is the first step).
Finally, saying dejour is in better shape than ever (financially) is absolutely ludicrous. Without my going into details, why do you think the NYSE sent them a letter of non compliance??? Before you say it, it has nothing to do with PPS and the hoodwinked story of the R/S for such reason.
Great post, harold. You seem like a very educated person and I wish we had more people like you on this board. I am fully invested in DEJ and see a great potential in the next few years. Our CEO is sitting on a large number of shares and is working hard to make sure that this company succeeds. If it does, he will be a very wealthy man. I believe that we will get unexpected news by the end of the year. That is just my opinion and I have strong reasons behind it. Why do we have people on this board trashing the company? Who knows? I, personally, don't have that kind of time and I would never consider it. We are all different after all.
