Maybe Ralph will pull a Cramer from Seinfeld. When Cramer burnt himself with coffee, he hired his attorney Jackie to sue the coffee company. The coffee company told Cramer he could have all the coffee he ever wanted for a life time "and", but Cramer then interrupted and took the coffee and nothing else. Maybe Ralph will simply take a lifetime of Monster drinks and nothing else. That's what Ralph might of meant by material.
Leading Brands is presently the exclusive distributor of Hansen Energy Drinks in Canada pursuant to an agreement that requires a "material termination payment" to be made by Hansen to the Company in the event of its early cancellation.
It doesn't take much to be material to a small company like Lbix. Being that Ralph is shareholder friendly, why don't you call him and ask. I'm sure he'd be happy to take your call. By the way, ask him how much in sales Lbix will be losing each quarter by the Hansen's termination. Also ask him what century Lbix will be gaap profitable and not profitable by his own screw ball definition. Also ask him why he took most of his monthly newsletters off their website. Also ask him why he has gotten so generously compensated with options, even though the stock price is lower than when he got there 11 years ago.
Please tell Ralph that the internet hereos wish him a belated happy Valentine's day.
