I read the article you flagged... first paragraph leads off with "Sonus Networks is trading at multi-year lows, but traders are betting that shares will hold firm through its earnings report next week." It also indicated "The traders collect the premium from the option sales and are looking for SONS to stay above $7 through expiration in mid-May." Lets all hope they are right.
Let me say this...if he dares to attempt to commuiicate how proud he is of Sonus' performance in any fashion of the sense. I will personally see to it he gets the message that was the wrong thing to say to stockholders who are as wired up as many of us are regarding his handling of this company over the years. So Dolan if you are so delusional that you think your stockholders should be proud of your accomplishments ...then keep that to yourself.
“I’m pleased to report that the solid progress continues in every major area. “
Our sustained focus on process improvement is paying off.
We’re growing revenues, increasing margins and driving earnings and cash flow growth.
We’re very proud of these results.”
“…this map creates a tailwind that should drive even better top line growth in 2015.
“….we are reporting our seventh consecutive quarter of profitability with an outlook of sustained profitability as we move forward.”
Scott Thompson Wedbush “Do you think with the newly diversified revenue streams and everything you’ve done and executed on the last years, is that guidance e pretty bulletproof if you will from changes within some of those customers?”
Ray Dolan “……. ….I appreciate the question. But we feel very comfortable that our view going forward quantitatively and strategically, it’s very solid.”
Ray Dolan: “To everybody on the call, thank you very much for your support and interest in Sonus over the last several years. This has been a large part of our turnaround story that we’re now completing operationally and getting more strategic in the industry.”
