    RIA Status Question

    If VALU were to completely separate the Investment advisory business from VL Publishing, as appears to be disclosed in the 8-K, does that mean that VLP would not need to be registered as an investment advisor under the pertinent SEC Acts and regulations?

    If they were not required to be a RIA, doesn't that mean that JBB could reinstate herself as the ruling queen bee at VLP? Or did the SEC decree prohibit being an officer of a public company also?

    I am beginning to see ulterior motive here, as is necessarily necessary when dealing with these types........

    • My opinion is that she wants to sell it all. But her asking prices will be 2 or 3 times higher than what people are willing to pay. My guess is that the company is worth 75M and less the longer managment stay. Recall the technolgy is nearly 13 years old.

      With the IRS and NYS auditing the books, I don't see how they can sell the company in three months on anything that resemble favorable terms.

      I think there is a small chance of liquidation do to the reputational harm buttner Hendigson and Bresher brutally inflicted on the once premiere brand of Wall Street.
