Since 2007, total debt has increased by around 50 million while total assets have increased by 200 million. During this time the company has paid out 230 million in dividends or over $8.25 per share. What CPA wouldn't like those numbers?
Are you getting your information of "75% topline impact" from the same people that canceled the White House tours? That is outlandish poppycock. Regarding private equity, sounds like you have an axe to grind. Doubt that you understand business development companies. This company has thrived and paid ever increasing dividends during the tenure of the previous CEO. It continues to do so now. The existing management has placed their bets on this company with their own dollars. That is generally a meaningful indicator.
