    QTRN at 18

    I picked up quite a few QTRN at 18.. my spouse
    works in a small clinical trial company and some of the
    folks in that company seemed to think that this is a
    great buy at this price.. I would appreciate some
    financial analysis.. 1. how do you feel about the P/E of 15
    and PEG of 0.91...
    2. who is the nearest
    competitor for this company and how good are they ?
    3. I
    work for a drug company and know that there are a
    whole bunch of new drugs in the pipeline, who else is
    out there who can carry out these large scale clin.
    trials ?

    • I have no idea why you people made such a big
      deal about Strickland leaving. He was not a senior
      executive. There has been no comment about Stack leaving
      Innovex USA as CEO. While he too may have been
      "technically illiterate" as some felt Strickland was, unlike
      Strickland, he built a considerable business base for the
      next management team to launch from. I agree that the
      S&P momentum is occurring at the same time and may be
      a bigger deal this week. Nevertheless, why bother
      about Strickland (a director level, VP level?), when a
      business entrepreneur is leaving.

      By the way, does
      anyone know where Stack is going? I would guess he would
      have a big-time non-compete!

    • Thank you for your response even though you
      missed my point. At the risk of getting technical, the
      10-Q filed 8/13/99 for the quarter ending 6/3/99 shows
      on p.8 ENVOY income (in 000) for the previous six
      months of $54,468 versus $85,473 for the corresponding
      1998 time periods. On p.11 is shown Quinternet
      Informatics income of $125,148, a difference of $70,680. This
      difference should be Scott-Levin, SMG and Synergy (anything
      else?) These groups have never done that kind of income.
      The 10-Q also states that there is no significant
      intersegment income-e.g. transfers from the CRO or CSO
      businesses. It will be very interesting to see the 10-Q for
      the third quarter. It should be out soon.

    • well, it kind of comes from envoy... envoy's internet based transactions and also from envoy's synergy which was merged into innovex i believe. imoo

    • Is the Stack "retirement" a positive or negative
      situation? It should be noted that Stack built the US CSO
      business from zero to slightly south of $300 million.
      Before Mauzey got on board, Stack did report to White
      who was on the Board of Directors. Is Mauzey bringing
      in his team?
      New question-2Q99 SEC filing shows
      significant Quinternet Informatics income. Where the f---
      does it come from-not ENVOY!

    • Are for the best...Ogle and company drove us to
      the brink with their pushing for unrealistic
      targets..Dennis is pissed and cleaning house in his own way. More
      changes are in the work and should result in a stronger
      organization.

    • Senior Management at Innovex USA/QTRN is leaving. What will it do to the stock price?

    • we'll see a nice pop to 22$ or over.

    • 1) I got NO PHOTO!
      2) No Real Name
      3) And
      No e-mail address
      4) Under Location I get a City
      and State BUT.. NO -- Street address and NO PHONE
      NUMBER!!

      COME OUT OF THE CLOSET YOURSELF --- CLOWN!
      You are
      a Hypocrite!
      I nominate you for the "Darwin
      Awards!"
      Please remove yourself from the "gene -
      pool"!!
      ASAP!!!!

      regards,

      a.c.r.

    • I agree - but I am also not mentioning other
      people in my posts. I simply believe that people
      shouldn't specifically identify individuals if they aren't
      willing to post their own identity.

      As far as
      management leaving you may be right. I would imagine some
      changes are being facilitated by Q. However, let's not
      kid ourselves, others are going on their own accord
      for better opportunities. Not sure anyone who that
      was wooed by the golden handcuffs - options - still
      feel as strongly as they did say several months
      ago.

      Loyalty in the ranks needs to be developed over time and
      merging a bunch of acquistions together always causes
      casualties.

      Nuff said.

    • I don't see you rushing to put your name all over
      your messages.

      Message boards like this are
      often the only place people in a competetive industry
      (outside each others own company) can talk about things
      without much worry.

      I do think the one of the
      initial posters was a little off base in freaking out
      over Q's top management jumping ship. I would imagine
      anyone leaving right now is probably being asked to
      leave to make room for the necessary changes to improve
      Q's position.

      Q is fine and will be fine.
      Probably better off than anyone else in the industry
      during a storm. There is no such thing as a hurricane
      proof house, but Q is about as sure a bet as there is
      in this industry. I would take any management
      changes made within Q positively at this time and would
      actually expect to see more.

      I'm surprised we have
      not heard about more, but maybe they are taking a
      soft bat to this current issue only to clear the bases
      in the long run.

      Hoop
