    Let's give them one last chance...

    ...maybe they've learned their lesson from the mistakes of the past !?!?!

    • Its like reading tea leaves with this Tran character. Given the seasonality of the business is this chucklehead suggesting that he believes that the company will become profitable and have eliminated the comnpany's cash burn for the entire fiscal year next year or only for Q1???? Anyone have an educated guess on this??? If is the former is the case then this likely explains why the stock did not get crushed in the after market due to the weak 4Q guidance. You would think that Tran would have some sense of the size of the markets in which he competes and his achievable market share given the competitive positioning of his technology. Seems like he throws darts quarter to quarter.

      • Tran is full of it. He's lying again about future results.

      • as the company always overpromises and underdelivers. Cash down to about $60 mln and will go down further next quarter so they will have to keep their house in order pretty soon now.

        Personally I am as skeptic as the analysts as long as current management with its underwhelming track record is still in place.

        They will have to prove they can break even at the announced date but to restore the balance sheet they will have to show a decent amount of growth. Frankly I don't see this company compete successfully in its markets going forward. Would stay on the sidelines and watch how things play out.

        Remember also the company is mainly executing a cost savings plan while doing very little to actually GROW the business, so that's not exactly the strategy to win in a highly competitive market.

        If they miss their break even projections for next year with cash still bleeding this one might very well go the Trident way one or two years from now. Actually I don't see a liquidation value close to the current market cap.

        Perhaps the activist investors will step in again but I don't see them making a bid here.
