No one here can #$%$ about the dividend. All were warned about the way this family and friends run the outfit. In short, it;s MFEEM. Me first everyone else maybe. It's called the good old suckout. Pay off the family and friends and give the crumbs to the stockholders. Look at some other stocks that are controlled by friends and family and you will see a familiar pattern.
One guy on this message board warned and based his warning on the fact that he (or she) was just such an insider for years until the company died a slow death with the insiders set for life.
The pattern here is to disclose everything and hope the stockholders are too dumb to notice. They are probably correct in this case.
As for "trying to sell the company", everyone was aware of the fact that it was a move to distract....they never had any real thoughts of of giving up the gravy train, move was only to snooker the sharehalders.
I still would like to know why the millions of dollars paid to an investment firm as an advisory fee was not based on a performance clause. Perhaps someone with a legal background could inform us what this was all about. Severance was based on a contract in place since there was no say on pay provision, but the exorbitant advisory fee made no sense to me.
You didn't get the rift of my posting. Check out the "advisory" outfit, it's salesmen and managers. You may very well find that it's in that gang of family and friends.
Remember ??? They get the whipped cream and you get the near empty cup.
