    Same concept here - DNA mark every US citizen in addition to showing SS cards and passports. This would be another source / confirmation of legally being allowed in this country.

    this is the problem with small micro-cap companies..."start-up" if you will.

    it is very difficult to attract strong candidates as CFO to run the 'start-up company.

    1. APDN cant afford the fire-power that comes with reputable strong candidates
    2. Candidate CFOs seek clarity in model and stability

    Conversely, you need to find a CFO with firepower and has the vision and insight...this is the most challenging as majority of CFOs are not visionary. Most CFOs have one or the other and not both.

    I never wish ill toward others, but I think this was a bit overwhelming for Ms. Gray. I wish her luck but I don't know if Beth Jantzen is any better. She currently is the Controller and used to work for Marcum who was the former external auditor. I recall APDN had some issues with ICOFR and SOX and it may have been uncovered when Jantzen was the Controller?

    Current auditor is RBSM. I wonder if APDN has any former RBSM employees now as APDN employees...

  • ITW (Parent of Pillar) and stock symbol (ITW) has 390M shares outstanding with a EPS-TTM of $4.681. Obviously, ITW sees the benefits and value add to their organization in the services they provide to their customers.

    The question is what is this value and benefit worth to keep ITW above their competitors. Is a $0.01 in EPS worth the value that they will share with their customers? A modest $0.01 in EPS or $3.9M spread across all clients, volumes, products, geos probably amounts to fractions of a penny per unit cost.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • I recall GT stating of a quick turnaround and exit at 2014 year end...

    2/3 remaining in the 1Q15 and no real direction from this filing. I hate to say that longer this lingers, the more risks inherent for the equity holders. The Apple decision to convert into a data center reduces the chance of someone (Foxconn, Samsung or otherwise) coming into Mesa, buying the warehouse and furnaces and taking over where GT left off...

    I think I will be cutting back my position.

  • I have to believe that the pestering by Credit Group is tied to the credit defaults swaps that these guys probably have on or trying to put on. Anyone have insight into the current CDS spreads?

    My guess is the bond holders are naturally long bonds and long CDS = sort of short credit. Then post BK, they are trying to cause a ruckus in an attempt to widen spreads to sell swaps knowing full well of the amicable split to only cover when spreads tighten. I think the trade is directionally right??

    Just my take

  • With all their aggravation, I think the creditors committee best be careful...

    At some point if they keep pushing, Apple is going to open Door #2 and go straight to Chapter 7. I think the delays and pestering bond /creditor group will push the share price lower...
