Right, management made the mistake of causing the oil market deflation all by themselves...lol The stock is/was controlled by short divers and now they are in over their heads and desperately trying to get out.
Cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2015 was $18.5 million when combined with restricted cash of $5.0 million related to the Wells Fargo credit facility.
"I am confident that our team is on track to achieve our goals as we continue to operate in a challenging business environment. We are focused on reaching EBITDA breakeven as quickly as possible and will enter our next fiscal year with a lower cost structure that we anticipate will allow us to reach EBITDA breakeven at approximately a $30 million quarterly revenue mark. Additionally, we are developing a plan to further lower our EBITDA breakeven to a $25 million quarterly revenue level. We’re extremely pleased with our new C1000 Signature Series product launch, CHP growth in the U.S. and emerging markets, and the revenue growth opportunities that we believe our new Capstone Finance entity will bring us.”
20X fewer shares to spread the cash improvement over and making a bigger impact. on shares. Thanx for that forward look.
All the bogus lawsuits are now null and void. Bogus from the start. Management has no comment to make because there is nothing to comment on. If Capstone where served legal papers it would be required to notify investors which of course will never happen. All big short bogus from the start...lol
On the contrary, Capstone has cut the operating costs and has streamlined the manufacture so that the unit sales will be profit making for the first time. In the very short term the fake lawsuits failure as of January 15th will give a boost to the pps.
Since the end of the last quarter ATM opportunity has likely boosted cash to a year level. Good enough to weather this temporary down turn in revenue. Giving Capstone time to add revenue from other markets replacing the oil sourced markets. .
Go google GPM and you will see they sue almost anything. Like throwing spaghetti on the wall and see if anything sticks. But these guys aren't too bright because Capstone is far from a rich company. Nothing can stick here...Capstone just doing its business... and it is another failure for GPM.
The average price of the stock for 2015 is about $10 post split. So there is a lot of spread ahead from way down here. What will the CEO show for Capstone in the coming year is the trade criteria for this stock at 7 cents pre-split....bargains galore.
Capstone has been trading as if it was at the door of death but now we know CPST has survived the worst of it. Trading will now move the PPS back to life and it can get back to the post split $4's and higher depending on management's continuing moves into new markets other than drillers.

Capstone is a small company with little cash which is why no serious lawyer would bother wasting his time. But we have 7 little lawyers who all of a sudden put out 7 PRs...now all at the same time when they had many weeks before to do the same but didn't. Why all of sudden do they all show up saying they are looking for cash...on a weak and unwinnable fiduciary case? The honch short is looking to get the lowest pps he can to cover his short but this 7 PR gambit of his doesn't seem to be working to well. Virtually no retail sellers are taking his bait with the 7 PRs. Expect the short to start to cover soon and taking whatever price he can get. That run up is the fun time to make a trade on CPST.
Slightly in the long run but the advantage is the easy path to ownership that many who are on the fence would accept. Those in the oil business would welcome this advantage right now.
"Possible Breaches of Fiduciary Duty"
Possible? Not if you understand SEC Fiduciary practice. There is no statement by Capstone management that does not sit squarely into the field of corporate and SEC language. There in zero basis for taking Capstone to court and not one of these small time lawyers even has a client to defend in court. Big short give these little lawyers a few pesos and they generate bogus PRs for him which costs the lawyer nothing. The deadline to sign up any CPST shareholder who has lost over $100K is getting very close and then all these lawsuits go to the dumper at zero cost to Capstone. Big short is hoping some small shareholders are getting scared enough but it doesn't look like thats going to happen. I'm still waiting for the runup to start for real.
Nicky...the more oversold it is the bigger the run up as the big short shows his desperation when trying to get the best cover price. How much higher will he take it....we will see soon.
The shorts have reason for worry. Capstone did not warn for the quarter and had the cash to stay. The report will show what cash has been obtained. The fact that Capstone continues after this report with cash on hand is a killer for any short position going forward.
Virtually no retail selling down here. Just a few day traders from slightly higher and looking for the best re-entry. and the big short who is short selling with naked short shares looking and hoping to get retail to sell some. There will be big short panic and covering if and when Capstone lets out a price moving PR - any time now. .
