    bounty- as a matter of fact. I have personally exactly 1.233.000 Shares. 1 week ago it was less, but could not resist to buy more yesterday. But to give you satisfaction: Based on my taxed assets and income, it is Peanuts.

    bounty- since when are you mentioned in a filing S8, when you buy in the market? And for the rest of your question: We do not have to prove anything we are still living in a democratic Environment and not in North-Korea. But to finalize my note: The former Management were crooks. Some of those involved had to return Shares because they stole it and so it is then understandable, that those "ex-crooks" have only one wish, that DECN will not succeed. Tja - life is though but it remainds me of all those Ex-Nazis who found no guilt in their doing - and some of the bashers here, cannot see any guilt either, for what they did in the past.

    bounty- it is very simple. You take the ones who filed and you get to roughly 20 %
    I take the ones I do personally know and they in total amount up to between 25 and 30 %. This already gives a total of 45 to 50 %. Then some on closed Forums in UK disclosed somehow how much they have and if I take only 50 % of this figure for granted then I end up even higher.
    Finally, the 3 months average traded volume of the last 3 months has been 5.8 Mio. Well, this has nothing to do with retailers. The small Players are not in this stock as every professional observer of Level 2 and better Level 3 could Attest. The bid Limits are in control of the biggies and they played their average down game too well. This is the Point: The biggies have a simple allocation formula and at the end, the will always be in control of the lowest average, while the small one cannot affort such Kind of average down.

    bounty- you know that stupid questions do not deserve a reply.
    But you can Count on this one. The small retailers may Count for nothing more than 40 to 30 %. Even I personally know more than 12 People and each of them has between $ 150.000 and $ 250.000 invested.
    The 3 parties that filed recently control roughly 20 % so the rest is distributed among those who do not have to file, because they are not at the 5 % hurdle. But those are the ones who Play the fiddle in the small cap sector.

    Bounty- I will give you a small secret. I and my friends - and we are not acting as a Group - have more than 1 Mio $ of Shares in this Company. And we would gladly buy more once DECN is up with their filings. It always depends on the deepness of the pockets and the Long-term view. We have enough ammunition to buy even more and will do so just based on common sense. And I can give you even another secret. All is financed by Money actually coming from the J&J stockplays - pure Options premium Plays on writing nacked puts and calls and from this income you finance the Investment in DECN and other small companies. Every Option fuzzy can do this, as J&J has a volatility that is easy to track by Computer but has high premiums on the Options side. That is the way it works in the world of hedgies.

    bounty- Dream on. If they would be out for cash, they would have accepted the Settlement. But there is something else you Oldtimers will not understand. In the meantime 60 % or more of the Shares are in the Hands of sophisticated shareholders who have some saying and every smart Management is listening nowadays to such Investors. And my guess won't be far off to say, that it was the pressure from those Groups that helped DECN make the decision to refuse those offers.

  • arthurogutzmann@rocketmail.com arthurogutzmann Mar 5, 2015 2:27 AM Flag

    bounty- 1.) Well it seems, you get confused. First there is no Settlement, as DECN refused the OFFERS and now is free to go for the court bond and to move on with Anti-Trust Actions. Stupidity is not on their Agenda I would say. On one Hand your bashers go after the Company for being neglect of the shareholders and if then DECN refuses bids as too low and goes for a higher one, then you go after the Company as well. Sorry, Boy, that is not the way it works - only in the bashers world. And finally: Who defines the Terms: what has to be understood under huge Settlement? 10 Mio - 15 Mio - 20 Mio. It always depends.

    bounty-hunter: something for education. You cannot have a Settlement unless both signed the paper. And if you read the text well, with reference to J&J offers. This is plural. There was not only one offer and it is the right on DECN to accept it or to refuse it and I guess, they had their reasons to refuse it. But the way you write, it Shows me you are just a Little negative "stinker". By the way: Why do you hide now behind Lions Tact on I-Hub. His writing style is changing too much not to see, that he is edited by some. I hope DECN keeps you busy for the next couple of years and we have the pleasure to be entertained by Clowns.

    ure... not a very smart comment. Every Company is releasing News that is in connex with ongoing Business, legal cases or whatsoever. But when it Comes to DECN, then of course it is paid Promotion. Well to give you satisfaction: What you are doing is simple bashing nothing more nothing less and some Scam Bashers operating out of the cyber-world even got and still get paid for. This I would then consider is rather sick.

    They just deleted this post from Leirum.

    That those various filings will give room to debate could have been expected. Some use it of course to try to discredit the company and some use it as a good sign as it shows that some “big money” trusts the company. I mean why should I trust somebody who has no investment in the company and why should I not trust those who have their personal funds invested? Increasing a stake in a company always has been a sign of confidence, based on the wisdom in the street. And I would guess, neither of them is navigating blind.
    .
    Let me summarize:

    Leonid Frenkel (managing member of Triage Capital) is in control of 4.314.212 shares = 9.53 %

    Periscope Partners L.P. is in control of 1.841.663 shares = 4.11 %

    Then:

    Alpha Credit, Platinum Credit and Mark Nordlicht = 1.795.331 shares = 3.98 % (Based on the present O/S)

    If the latter group would convert from the E and B CPS they would get another 6.970.684 and 15 .000.000 shares. There is a certain restriction (not higher than 9.99 % of the O/S) – unless the holder of this right would inform the issuer that he the holder waives such limitation. (61 days written notice)

    You remember Platinum Credit?

  • arthurogutzmann@rocketmail.com arthurogutzmann Feb 18, 2015 9:37 AM Flag

    I would say, those CV rights should be seen in the context of credit lines available for DECN to be drawn if and when needed. Up to now, those conversion rights were not executed although they could have done it based on the present 3.98 % reporting as they would have room for the conversion of at least 2.6 Mio shs based on the estimated 45 Mio O/S. As this was not done, shows me, that the expense side of funding was not increased.

    To summarize all: DECN has certainly some strong hands supporting them on one hand and what is best, has plenty of leeway for getting funded when needed. And as we all know, if and when converted by the latter group this would mean no debt but equity.
    But why has Frenkel, whom some attest an excellent nose when it comes to complicated deals, increased his stake? Because he did not understand the E and B Converts and the implications if and when all would be converted? Of course if this would be so, the OS would then have increased to 67 Mio, and I guess, Frenkel does not need a calculator to come to the same findings. And if he came to the same findings, why then did he increase it if he would have a problem with a possible dilution down the road of 22 Mio shs?

    What are the options or the motives for his increase?

    a) He sees something, some here cannot see because they do not understand what is going on behind the Walls.

    b) He has experienced similar cases before and knows, that the end-figure to be paid will exceed what some have been talking about. A “possible” maximum dilution by 46 % if and when it would happen, must be justified by calculation and for this some cross-model are available. If he would see a settlement in the range of $ 25 - $ 30 Mio, would he have increased? Maybe: But what if he sees a figure closer to 100 Mio for reasons most of us have no idea about?

    c) He and his Team see the market-potential for DECN as what it is, huge or better said, giving them a high rating, that they would grab more than 10% of the J&J market share.

    d) He and his Team are of the opinion, that DECN is working on a second product, which will generate revenues in the future, we have not talked about.

    e) He smells the outcome and the implications of being cash-rich, which could be used to finance the business-model debt free and could be used to repurchase shares in the market if and when the pricing of the stock would be at a discount.

    energy _ if one scrolls down the filings then one sees that there is another stake of 4.11 % by Periscope Partners L.P. So in total they control 13.64 of DECN

    Reading the text again, I would then say, that Goldstien, Bounty alias ...... & Co are the Informant for Alydir. A very funny Group this traingular relationship. First Money and time was used to pay cyber Scams for a period of months and as it did not work out they of course now go back to another tactic. Keep the boards busy with the usual bashing nonsense.

    excellent findings about Alydir, Lions Tact and anothe Third Party. What poor souls they are.

    Stylometric identification exploits the fact that we all have a „fingerprint“ based on our stylistic choices and idiosyncrasies with the written word. We know this phenomenon even from so-called speech-writers which give their service to politicians or other high ranking people . A friend of mine who works for an University is famous for identifying authors on nothing but a comparison of the content they publish to other web content they have previously authored. Applying the computer to algorithm and trying to determine which blog it came from and this is called post-to-blog matching. And what did the computer find out.
    Lions tact has 2 fingerprints. One is clearly assigned to him but then there are other text messages and they are clearly assigned to Alydir and even another person not identified on this board but on another The conclusion: Lions has 2 parties at his side that feed him and one of this party is even feeding Alydir. Doing this keeps the momentum I would say.
    Does it surprise me – nope.

    Seek and you shall find.

    bp-goldstien - did you defraud? Would make sense, because most of the time the biggest crooks are yelling the loudest or as we have seen in politics: Those who preach the highest standarst of ethics are mostly those who get caught afterwards making gymnastic in Hotel rooms or toilets.

    Alydyr - All what I can say, it is a kindergarden what you fabricate. What life must you have, do feel mandated to bash companies in an always similar pattern. You must be a very frustrated Soul. Enjoy your days from whatever is left, I enjoy my life, my Money and the view from my houses and blessed to be surrounded by a healthy Family and good friends who enjoy life. You certainly do not know what this means. Hang on with your CPA: The way it Looks it did not bring a lot of success in your life otherwise you would not be filled in a bashers Job. Oh and not to be forgotten: Since you Play Editor for Lions Tact his writing style became better. Only one Thing is not undertood, his constant LOL but this maybe something for a Special Treatment.
