    4.50 take out

    An offer doesn't have to be in cash either. It could come in the form of stock in a GOOD company that could appreciate long term. Let's hope Theissen and others can drive the price up and negotiate a better deal for all shareholders!

    Only thing PH is good at is driving the price down! Same goes for the BOD's!

    THis is all about canning your CEO

    Exactly! See my replies below. His days are numbered in my opinion! John Theissen is like a dog tearing at his pant leg and he's not letting go.

    Selling was probably a really bad move at this point, but you do what you have to do to protect your investment. I think management has already had offers for the company or at least been asked to discuss possible offers and they turned the offers away. Hiring Barclay's now says to me, "OK, now were finally willing to discuss offers." Vanguard, BlackRock, and Vertex are now getting impatient with PH in my opinion and I believe they are pressuring the Board to take immediate action, just like I have been doing for several months. Vertex didn't buy 8% of the company to lose money! John knows what he is doing and so does Vanguard & BlackRock. Watch the volume in the next few days and see how this plays out!

    The CEO is the problem. Dave Lyle could run this company much better. The directors are wimpy and won't fire PH and bring in a restructuring artist or put somebody else in charge. It's up to the big institutions to force the issue or buy them out totally and do it themselves. I believe that process is already underway. I doubt PH will be around much longer as CEO. If the volume picks up later today to the upside, the institutions are moving in for the kill. In my opinion, they basically own the company right now and will call the shots in the future. Vanguard & BlackRock are pretty good at what they do. Don't underestimate their power!

    Yes, he's probably right but the price will most likely be in the $5 to $7 range unless management is hiding news of a major contract that will justify a higher price than that. What makes the most sense is a hostile takeover by Vanguard, Vertex, or BlackRock. They would fire PH and then REALLY restructure to get a better price for the company later on.

    Obviously PH was totally distracted by his womanizing and lord knows what else! He shouldn't have been allowed to remain as CEO. I still think Vanguard and BlackRock will have the power to push him out and now Vertex has around 8%. PH better get it together real soon or he is history as far as ENTR goes. Why management is not buying shares is a mystery unless they know there is a takeover in the works and they don't want the SEC all over them for insider trading on non-public information???

    Like I said below: "It's going to take the CEO stepping up to the plate and making things happen. So far he has been AWOL. In that case, the Board of Directors should fire him and get in a CEO that can get the job done. That's not happening either! Vanguard & BlackRock are now the big guns. They have the power to make things happen. In my opinion, it's only a matter of time before they make a move to get new management in place and get this stock back up where it belongs. Nothing wrong with the products...everything wrong with this CEO!" Hopefully Vanguard, BlackRock and Vertex are working on getting a new CEO in place ASAP!!

    SVP Charlie Lesko sold some shares at 2.65

    My company (in the S&P 500) does not allow the employee or executive to pay the taxes owed. Company is required to sell the restricted stock. to cover taxes. Only some companies will allow it. "The final major difference between RSUs and stock options is the way they are taxed. We covered this subject in great detail in Manage Vested RSUs Like A Cash Bonus & Consider Selling. The bottom line is RSUs are taxed as soon as they become vested and liquid. In most cases your employer will withhold some of your RSUs as payment for taxes owed at the time of vesting. In some cases you may be given the option to pay the taxes due with cash on hand so you retain all vested RSUs. In either case your RSUs are taxed at ordinary income rates, which can be as high as 48% (Federal + State) depending on the value of your RSUs and the state in which you live."

    Insiders don't have that option to pay taxes themselves. It gets taken out automatically (in sold stock) when they exercise options. Lesko is a pretty sharp trader from what I've seen in the past. It's a good sign!

    That block trade was over 1 million shares and shows GREEN on my E*TRADE charts. It got absorbed pretty quickly with sellers or a single seller. Perhaps the seller is finally sold out and we can start making upward progress. Need some headlines to get it moving and bring back some confidence in management!

    Mrxit1, that's pretty much the way I see it also. Too bad we don't have a real leader that can show some real confidence (other than what's between his legs)! BOD really screwed up not firing him. Typical with many small companies though. The sector is right and the product designs are good so business should improve despite a terrible CEO. Hard to understand why the BOD can't get the message! BlackRock and Vanguard should be camping out on their doorstep or demanding a Board seat. Surely they could find a better CEO in a heartbeat!

    Yep, still here and haven't sold any shares. Not buying any more though. Would love to see the BOD fire Patrick and bring in a "real" CEO. This guy is no leader and he can't even make a decent presentation to his shareholders. How he survived this long is beyond me! I still believe business will improve into 2015, but not because of Patrick. Thank God they have some good VP's that can get the job done in spite of their ----- boss!

    Bingo!! Board of Directors doesn't get the message either. They protected PH and changed his contract language after the horse was already out of the barn and 2 states away (as someone else on this message board posted earlier)!
