    The market cap has tanked %30 since the IPO and management gets these bonuses and free stock options. A two year old could jump over the targets set in the 2012 incentive plan.

    Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

(the "Company") considered and approved, for the Company's executive officers named below: (1) cash bonuses ("Cash Bonus") for performance during 2014 under its short-term incentive program;
    (2) the granting of certain stock options ("Stock Option Grants"); (3) the granting of performance shares in connection with the Company's 2015 long-term incentive program ("2015 LTIP") and (4) the establishment of performance targets in connection with the Company's short-term incentive program for 2015 ("2015 Performance Targets"). Each of the Cash Bonus, Stock Option Grants, 2015 LTIP and 2015 Performance Targets was established pursuant to, and in accordance with, the Company's 2012 Omnibus Incentive Compensation Plan, as amended (the "2012 Plan").

    Hold it, they hired 1/2 of alcons management team, hopefully the ones with a brain, that can get some strong revenue growth. via sales and usage. Maybe British NHS will add it to routine eye test protocol.

    We needs bums on the seats and a fish in the hand and a chip in every eye!

    Hopefully so. They bought 600 million of sale lease back properties this year, at cap rates 7.5%+ , a very good year.

    I think Q4 will be somewhat lumpy because of 1 time charges associated with share offerings, closing costs and when the various deals closed during the quarter. Expect very solid guidance run rate numbers for Q1 2015; a full book will be up and running. Maybe another dividend bump or the purchase sale/leaseback of a Danish Willie Wonker Chocolate Warehouse, or German Technology Park.

    Shelf offering

    equity_operations equity_operations Jan 8, 2015 8:27 AM Flag

    It can be anything they want it to be, believe it doesn't matter much right now. Main focus is if they exceed revenue numbers. Management has had almost 1 year to focus on increased usage vs the placement of new devices. They need to report an excellent quarter, no excuses, the stock price will respond. If not, the terms of this offering become important into Q2/3 as cash needed to continue operations will be shrinking, not growing.

    Everything is in place to succeed. The device seems to be a viable piece of equipment that can become a standard test as part of routine eye exams, especially so for patients getting lasik/cataracts. The reimbursements from insurance/medicare are in place. International market is untapped. Management needs to DELIVER. With Alcon folks on board, they cant screw up a free lunch, or can they?

    We may offer or sell common stock, preferred stock, depositary shares, debt securities, and warrants in one or more offerings and in any combination either individually or as units comprised of one or more other securities. The aggregate offering price of the securities sold pursuant to this prospectus will not exceed $25,000,000. A prospectus supplement, which we will provide each time we offer securities with this prospectus, will describe the specific amounts, prices and terms of the securities being offered.

    for 25 million filed on Jan 2nd. No rest for the weary or hungover.....

  • form 4 filed by the good Dr. , sold 10,000 shares under a preplanned sale. Perfectly legitimate.

    Can anyone explain why the good Dr. has been on TEARs BOD for 9 years? He is surely not on audit committee commenting on GAAP depreciation of test chips? Maybe on compensation committee doing industry surveys of comparable CEO salary and bonus, Heres run down from 150K for what?

    TearLab Corp
    Director Compensation for 2013
    Fees earned or paid in cash $36,000
    Option awards (in $)
    Total Compensation
    Number of shares owned 86,238

    He over saw the dutch auction to buy back TLCVi (pink sheet) shares by taking on 50 million of debt. Mortgaged the company to buy back shares @ $5.50, that are now being used in Kilmer's outhouse. The captain of the good ship TLCV that went to pink sheets, then private ownership. Shareholders holding the bag. We dont need this type of help at tear.

    At least Vamvakass steps up with some of his ill gotten gains and buys TEAR stock on open market.

    Expect this to drop to 2.10 because of folks wanting to harvest a tax loss. May have to average down for the last time next week,.

    Will need to wait and see if these stooges can deliver on their promises to "commercialize" this device. Hopefully Q1 may bring more good news from Europe, maybe another big sale in UK, or Luxotica buys them out for $4.

    Don't feel bad at all, everyone makes those type of mistakes, buying to high, selling when low. If someone says they don't, they are lying pukes!

    Heres some tales of woe...

    About 15 years ago I owned a piece of a company that made a nice shiny lightweight laptop. Bought 400 shares at $13, in a few months sold @ $15. Made a quick cool $800, patted myself on back, a real Wall-street sharpie...bought a few pints at Paddy Foleys in Ropponggi. That stock was Apple, worth 300K now.

    About same time bought 3000 shares of a chemical company that had some bad asbestos liability for about $4 / share. Sold that and scalped a thousand or so. That company is WR Grace, now trades at $90. 270K bye bye

    Or this good one, 10 years ago selling $25 calls on MCD (which I owned a long time), then watching 800 shares get called away....lost out on chance to buy chipotle which MCD owned and spun off shortly after. The dividend yield on my original cost would be 20%+. Kiss another 150-200k bye bye.....

    If I kept those lottery tickets I could stop working now.. But never will know if I would have held them after a double or triple? Its a real difficult game, there are so very few super investors living in graham/doddsville.

    I try to check progress against S&P500. If you cant beat that, then might as well follow Bogle/Buffets advice and buy index funds good luck and merry Christmas....

  • Many of us have been owners of this company for a while. I had AFR and got into GKK via the merger/takeover. Going through the great refinance debacle of 2011, seeing it go to 5$ then back to 2$ in a few weeks, and nearly seeing GKK going broke was gut busting.

    The board came to their senses and made a great decision to hire the current crew. Thankfully the nitwits from SL Green have also been booted back to their upper west side town-house.

    The new guys have delivered on everything and more. The 1st phase has been completed and they are making progress with deals like the one just announced that will grow the company to a solid midsize/large triple n lease company. They have a good relationship with wallstreet thugs that will help raise equity, at a price...

    I believe they are very transparent and forth coming in conference calls, Some believe they are not so much in credit ratings of tenants.(Not sure how transparent other reits are?) If you do some digging (looking at local real-estate news sites where business sales are listed) , you can identify the folks who are selling, who are now becoming tenants. I mentioned Poland Springs and Avis/Enterprise Car as recent examples.

    The quick big double in share price are a thing of the past. However solid share growth will go hand in hand with the growth of the business, also expect increased dividends. Over the next few years this company will outperform the SP500.
