No need to feel sorry for me. I made a seven figure profit on HOOK. Others were right there with me at the bottom. You, on the other hand, were predicting BK. Apparently they didn't teach you much about financial analysis at that"good" business school you supposedly attended (I would ask for a refund). Your comment about not being able to make payroll with only $11,000 in the bank when the revolver was being repaid may have been the stupidest financial comment I have ever seen. Priceless, really. You are incapable of admitting you were wrong because you are, in a classic clinical sense, a narcissist. Seek help immediately.
Lighten up Francis. I couldn't post the entire article since I do not subscribe to Crain's Chicago. Part of the headline, which I didn't post, included a reference to Goose Island hiring bankers to consider how to finance their long-term growth. When you "hire bankers" they usually try to push for an outright sale as it is typically the highest margin fee a banker can earn. Of course you probably already knew that, right? No wonder your wife left you.
