No, I don't think it's that easy. They have been in constant contact with lenders so I have to believe the interest payment was not a surprise. Top Finance guy signs on (for stock & options) to a company soon to go down tube? The meeting between lender and customer was not decided on June 5th nor was the forbearance.
