    My impression of Hussey

    I listened very carefully to Hussey and IB both on the call and plan to listen to a replay. IB's enthusiasm and excitement about the core business were obviously transmitted on the call. He sounded the same as when I had the good fortune to be able to speak with him on the phone. My primary interest was focused on how Hussey came across. My sense is that he is very much in charge of this company, very straightforward, no nonsense, very capable of making tough decisions (therefore maybe alienating a few people in the process), tight-fisted with the finances (but realizing that judicious capital investment has to be made to grow the business), has a grasp of what Augme and its business are really all about (critical for a CEO), and will work well with IB. He is obviously going to be careful and conservative in what he says and promises. I do believe he has a clear focus on increasing shareholder value, and is willing to think outside the box to do so, but will be deliberate during that process. I am encouraged.

    • You're one of the few that really picked up on the type of guy Bob is on the call. He's doing everything he said he would. Based on the past, I'd look for him to now begin to try and improve the board of directors with some younger more savvy mobile executives. I also expect he will step up in a meaningful way in the not so distant future and put his own money where his mouth is just like he always does but only after his employment agreement is properly filed and disclosed.

      • Adam, I like the idea of trying to get some folks with mobile knowledge, experience, and reputation, on the Board. If we could land a few people with those types of credentials it would immediately add some credibility to the company. It would also give Hussey some trusted consultants to listen to as he tries to make some challenging decisions. Let's hope it can happen.

    • Listened to the call and was very impressed by the tone. He even said that they were being very conservative with the numbers. Hiring of three new regional sales managers should give everyone a feel for how business is over the entire US.

    • Good stuff Doc!

    • I said Bob was exactly all those things and I'm glad now others know it. You really haven't seen anything yet. Bob runs in a circle of some very wealthy and accomplished people. Wait till he starts to go to his own roledex and let his associates and friends really know why he's involved with this small company. I said it before Bob wouldn't even waste his time if he didn't see a big opportunity.

    • agree hfb..i listened to the call and felt the same way..then i look at l2 screen and see a huge amt of stock for sale and just shake my head in wonder..

      • I know the feeling, Just. I can't for the life of me understand why people would be selling in here. I guess they may think they have time to redeploy the money elsewhere and then buy Augme back later before events crystallize. But this stock could appreciate at any time from any number of potential events, and even if it only went up 10 cents, that would be a large return from these levels, and probably a better percentage return than an investor would get from most other investments at this time...
