    We've been duped

    This is still a PPT business, and I�m beginning to think it will always be a PPT business. Paul�s promises about the existing and new/upcoming technology (AMI) are getting old. The box office division has been around for five (?) years. Ken Papagan has been around approximately for the same period of time. Since the introduction of box office, what other revenue has the company generated? And, as I recall, box office was the product of Kim Cox, which I also understand that Paul was initially against. Paul got rid of Kim for Papagan, and since Kim�s departure Rentrak has not delivered anything other than promises? What has Papagan done for the company? Nothing. What�s happening with Retail Sales, Supply Chain, Theatrical? I didn�t hear anything regarding those existing businesses. I was really excited about the prospects of all the OnDemand MSO�s that were being signed, and all of the potential advertising revenue, but it appears that is five years off (according to Hetzel). Is this as exciting as it�s going to get? Rent is sitting on a ton of money. What are they doing with it? Nothing. The rumor is that Paul is holding onto it for his exit plan. I think the shareholders have been duped! Paul�s game plan has always been for Paul. Personally I think the shareholders got on the wrong train. I don�t see this going anywhere in the near future. And as soon as the PPT revenue trend starts to decline, the stock price will sink fast.
