I haven't really followed this company like some of you guys here. I've just traded it a few times. You guys seem pretty downbeat but the fourth quarter results look good to me. Am I missing something? I would expect this thing to pop tomorrow.
Aware has poor transparency of its business and future strategy. They do everything possible to discourage outside investment and they do not avail themselves to any sort of shareholder accountability. So for many years, Aware has traded at or near the cash value on the balance sheet. This has been engineered by John Stafford. The questiosn are:
1) Has he mislead investors to undervalue the company?
2) Has he made inappropriate disposition of the assets?
The zero transparency factor makes it impossible to answer these questions with normal due diligence. Therefore extraordinary means are required.
