Meeting don't equate to a signed s/d. Until Phil signs a s/d agreement there is no s/m. Until Nec knows who s/m is, no approval.
This situation is same as 2009 when Phil was "negotiating" with "numerous" ( per Phil) s/m's for a s/d. S/D never materialized and Phil hired Henry and Henry brought in EWC and Flex and you know how that has worked out, so far.
