The last thing the creators who crafted this con job ever wanted was a legitimate business conforming to normal business standards. By bringing about this esoteric hype fueled Ponzi scheme whereby reporting actual achievements and growth to shareholders was easily satisfied with a few key words typically heard at a Tony Robbins seminar or a Jimmy Baker sermon the schemers have been able to keep the shareholders dumb and silent for 16 years. While never showing a sustained profitable model for a continuous 16 years, yet, all the while helping themselves to generous dips into the generated revenues in the form of "performance bonuses" they have amassed huge fortunes. "Next year" has been the red salve to satiate the angst of the lemming bagholders. jmho.
Be careful when engaging Carl. It is widely rumored that Carl was a right hand man and enforcer to Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow, notorious leader of the #$%$ Yee Hing Tong. He can hurt you. Avoid his invitation to meet for a hamburger. Don't be surprised to learn that Mr Right has been seriously injured.
The LVLT management philosophy had been consistent and unwavering since the launch of the company. "Get as much as you can as fast as you can". As for the shareholders "let them eat cake".
Sounds like a scenario for our little hero stud muffin Buysell. He sure keeps this board on the straight and narrow. And, as a bonus, he has fully mastered playing "options".
Happiness for Carl is sitting in the lap of a 'Big-un' whilst eating from a grilled Dalmatian thigh bone.
Bet neither one weighs over 135 soaking wet. Now, Mr stuff's wife is a different story. Size 60 inch waist and size 2 hair net. Have at it Carl. Enjoy.
Got a moron threatening to drive across the country to Disneyland and kick some booty!
FCF usage......Performance bonuses for the Directors and Officers would be a much better expenditure and reap far more rewards for shareholders.
I never received shares, just greenbacks. My investment with LVLT has been limited to several occasions of purchasing strategically timed put options which all returned handsome rewards. I do recall that many LVLT employees were cajoled into accepting shares/options in lieu of industry standard wages. Needless to say they (employees) came to regret that decision.
IF they can find a lender, the proceeds from any loan would be absorbed by operational and personnel costs just to keep the network up.Plus a sizable portion would be set aside for insider bonuses. For the shareholders : A deluxe "spinner" as usual.
Just where is this FCF going to come from? South America? UK? Europe? Asia? Domestic network ? I don't think so. Keep a sharp eye out for LVLT to go back into the financial markets for a new $5B to $10B loan just to keep the doors open until 2017. jmho.
