    "Numerous updates early next week"

    There is a simple answer to this question.

    There have been four updates since that tweet came out last Thursday. That's right. FOUR.

    1) Bascom-Palmer RP press release last Friday (important development)
    2) 10-Q last Friday (lots of information in there)
    3) Announcement of conferences they will be attending (not that big of a deal)
    4) Definitive Proxy Statement (lots of information in there)

    That's FOUR updates since the tweet, three of which were major. We've gone weeks at a time without any updates in the past and now we get four in four trading days and it's not enough. Just because the updates weren't what you were hoping for doesn't mean that GC lied or misled anybody. You made the decision in your brain to raise your expectation level. GC said we'd get updates. He didn't say they would be partnerships or grants or data or anything specific. Guess what? We got updates. He misled nobody. You misled yourself.

    AMBS market cap history:

    8/13/12 = $1.070 million
    8/13/13 = $17.52 million
    8/13/14 = $77.8 million

    Seems like pretty substantial growth over a two-year period to me. He must be a terrible CEO (sarcasm).

    I'll re-post this in this thread since apparently you deleted the thread in which it originally appeared...

    The CLIA partnership is all that matters in this case. If they name the partner, the "launch" date will depend on how quickly the partner can get it up and running. I don't think AMBS can definitively identify the launch date because it won't be entirely up to them once the partnership comes to fruition. That's how I would interpret that, but I'm open to hearing different views on it.

    Hey MKF, 1985 called...on a rotary dial phone. There's nothing wrong with using social media in the way he's used it. To call it childish and irresponsible is just showing your age or that you are unwilling to accept change which surprises me since you use Twitter yourself. It wasn't a conference call in the traditional sense, just a Q&A session to attempt to clarify some things. I'm not saying GC shouldn't be blamed for some misconceptions, but I think you are simplifying it too much by focusing on the social media aspect.

    Your another guy who surprises me by continuing to post on the board if you don't have shares. I just don't understand why you bother, although I have few ideas. For the most part, I think a lot of your points over the last few months have had some merit, but I would have thought you'd find a better way to spend your time instead of posting on a message board for a stock you are out of. But hey, it's a free country.

  • berryballs2003 berryballs2003 Aug 11, 2014 11:02 PM Flag

    I think an internet message board would count as social media so by your definition, we're all losers. I'm not saying you're wrong.

    Be careful, you're starting to sound like everyone's favorite mentally ill doctor. Holy cow, you must carry a mirror around with you everywhere you go so you can bask in your own glory.

    What exactly am I "laying on you?" You called a guy who tweets every now and then (not even everyday) a social media addict. That's absurd. If you can't admit that you exaggerated that, then you are just unwilling to listen. He's tweeted EIGHT times since the Q & A session on July 10th (not counting things he's re-tweeted from others). That's 8 original tweets in over a month. What an addict!

    No matter how the information is disseminated, there will always be plenty of confusion on these boards. I thought you'd know by now that the one of the main uses of these message boards is to CREATE confusion. Perhaps you're using it to your advantage in this case since you are apparently the greatest trader in the history of the world.

    I'm done going back and forth because you are exhausting. By the way, I thought you sold your position. You are posting on a message board for a stock you don't own far more frequently than the man you call an addict is tweeting. Put your ego aside and think about that for a minute. Not sure you're capable.

    Whatever you say. It's sad that you are too egotistical and arrogant to admit you may have overstated it the slightest bit. You can't even give an inch when someone stands up and disagrees with you. Again, you deflect and turn the tables to give the appearance that I have made the mistake. Perhaps, I have, but the fact is, you can't prove GC feels compelled to do anything based on the evidence you've presented. But if that explanation helps stroke your ego, good for you.

    This time I'm done and I mean it. This will allow you to get the last word, which I know is important to you.

    I understand your feeling about it, but just think you are over-exaggerating it by calling him a social media addict. He has 544 tweets and most of those are retweets. @mkerryfuller has tweeted over 1400 times. Do you consider yourself an addict? Probably not.

    I'm not a trader and don't plan to sell a share for at least a year so your "guess" is wrong. I'm just tired of people whining about what has happened and neglecting to notice that, really, very little has changed. If GC was 60 years old and tweeting like this, people would think, "wow, how great that this 60-year old CEO is using social media to connect with shareholders!" Instead, it's "this young CEO is way out of his league using twitter to connect with shareholders."

    The fact is...he uses a variety of methods -- twitter, blogs, PR's, conference calls -- to get his message out. I'd still rather have that than a CEO who hides in his office and rarely addresses the outside world. That's just my opinion and I don't expect you to share it.

    By the way, Warren Buffet has tweeted 5 times. His first tweet was "Warren is in the house."

    I thought you were done here. What does continuing to post accomplish if you're truly done? I like how you still refer to "us" as if you are a shareholder yet you list your sentiment as "strong sell." Interesting.

    Why did you re-create your alias on Friday? You had some pretty negative posts all week until Friday and all of a sudden, you delete your old profile (which also deletes old posts) and start posting positively.

  • berryballs2003 berryballs2003 Aug 11, 2014 9:48 PM Flag

    I'm just giving you a hard time like you do to others. Personally, I'm not a big social media person either but I do appreciate communication from the CEO on a semi-regular basis so it doesn't bother me when GC uses it. I just felt like you were over-simplifying the problem. It's just as much, if not a bigger problem that the language presented at the conferences was way too technical, but then again it can be tough to tone that down sometimes.

  • berryballs2003 berryballs2003 Aug 13, 2014 12:51 PM Flag

    You're neglecting to think about the flip side. If the share price climbs from where it is now, the RS figure decreases proportionally. The whole plan is to catapult off of the upcoming catalysts to minimize the ratio of the RS. That's been the plan all along. Why are so many people acting like this is something new? GC never said that there would be no RS. He said there was a possibility that there would be no RS. We don't know exactly what's coming so perhaps that possibility still exists.

    From the latest blog: "Many of you are likely asking how the Company can possibly expect to up-list to a national exchange in 2014 without the need for a reverse split of its common shares. The answer is that the Company does not know where its common shares will be priced towards the end of this year, and therefore cannot project what will be required in terms of a reverse split or if a reverse split will be needed. However, we remain optimistic that we can significantly increase shareholder value through value building events both from a scientific and clinical perspective, as well as a capital markets perspective."

    I don't think he's wavered from that message at all since I've been a shareholder (January 2014).

    Wow. Thanks for pointing that out. That means from 8/13/12 until 7/30/14 (less than 2 years), GC led an increase of about 13000% in the pps. That's even more impressive than my first example!

    For someone who typically cuts down speculation, I find it interesting that you are now speculating what is going through the minds of the AMBS board members. I guess if it suits your own argument, then it's fine with you, huh?

    8 tweets by GC in just over month but you still won't admit the "addict" label was out of line. I was wrong about you having a position here. Big deal. Just admit that GC is not a social media addict as you claimed. I've provided evidence he is not. Will your ego allow you to admit your were wrong? You're really good at deflecting people with sarcasm and humor, but I'm not letting you off the hook on this one.

    By the way, it's called "tweeting" and not "twittering." If it's part of your job, you might want to know the difference.

    My mistake. I typed pps but meant 13000% increase in market cap so explain how that's a bad thing.
