Not bad. The Cow is not quite dry yet. That's $10,000 a week for next 33 months. If Titan didn't borrow the $150 million unsecured note in 2012 they would have ZERO CASH. They spend the money like they don't have to pay it back. The Chairman bragged recently that they average about $1.3 million in cash per location. What he failed to mention was that it is all borrowed monies that need to be paid back. Reality is that they don't even have enough cash to repay that $150 million note.
