Hen you up in a corner.. Not have any conference calls or projections of any new ideas.. Tell you they are converting to a Biometrics company. Tell you they are working with Govt Contracts again that dont pay SNIT but do keep the lights on in the home office. Quietly SELL off the IP out the back door and continue to give the directors of this company Bonuses of Stock and Non- Dividend reimbursements so when they sell Out they get a return of the capital thet we the actual paying Shareholders paid for.. Does thois sound like a crokked way to do business for those shareholders who have been here a long time...You had better believe it does..
SA article dogging the stock came out yesterday & was sent to 80.000 subscribers.. and hedge fund houses.. This is how they extract $$$ out of the market. All the weak hands fold & they make $ on the buy back from SHORTIN
I'd rather buy when its below 11 Last time I bought it was below 10. HOLD off till these Interest rates rise this STock and EVERY stock gonna TANK... when the utility stocks tank you know BIG $$$ is getting out and sitting on the sidelines looking for entry sports into SAFER bonds. like State and Muni's ... me too gonna park this in HOLD mode for now...anyone but fast money will..

Aware, Inc. to Sell Home Networking and DSL Technology to Lantiq
BEDFORD, Mass., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Aware, Inc. (Nasdaq: AWRE) today announced it has agreed to sell assets associated with its Home Networking and DSL product lines for $6.75 million to Lantiq Broadband Holdco, Inc. and Lantiq Deutschland GmbH ("Lantiq"). Lantiq is a newly formed fabless semiconductor company being spun out of Infineon Technologies AG and funded by Golden Gate Capital.
The sale includes Aware's home networking and digital subscriber line (DSL) technology and related fixed assets, an approximately 40-person silicon IP development team, and certain patents relating to these technologies.
Additionally, Aware and Lantiq have formed a strategic cooperation with respect to embedded wireline diagnostic technology and products that is expected to benefit both parties in their respective target markets. The transaction is expected to close by the end of 2009 and is subject to the closing of the acquisition of Infineon's Wireline Division by Golden Gate Capital/Lantiq in addition to standard closing conditions.
I knew I SAW IT SOMEWHERE... Yahoo search helped me out
I seem to remember this company SELLING chips to Infineon/Lantiq ~ 5 years sgo and also doing some licensing deals with them. This company never discloses their customers its hard to know what their doing with Customer A Customer B or Customer C. Might be why no one hangs around long enough when they invest MILLIONS of dollars like ARIEL. Maybe they didn't get straight dope from the Management either. But I have to believe that DSL piece in this sale was AWRE IP. Lantiq didn't invent anything!

Intel Corp. said it has agreed to buy Lantiq, a German maker of communications chips, for undisclosed terms.
Lantiq was formed in 2009 from former operations of Infineon Technologies AG that were purchased by the San Francisco investment firm Golden Gate Capital. That transaction was valued at about $400 million when it closed.
Intel, based in Santa Clara, Calif., is best known for microprocessor chips that perform calculations in personal computers and server systems. But the company has sidelines in many other areas, including chips for devices called gateways that help connect consumers to the Internet over cable networks.
Lantiq, based in Munich, offers chips and software used for broadband communications in devices supplied by telecom providers and other customers. It specializes in networking technologies that include DSL, or digital subscriber line, as well as Wi-Fi and Ethernet.
Intel said the Lantiq operations would be folded into its client computing group, which has been leading a push to network everyday devices in a trend called the “Internet of Things.” Kirk Skaugen, a senior vice president who heads the group, said in prepared remarks that Lantiq’s technology would help Intel move beyond cable gateways into other products for connecting devices in the home.
The transaction is expected to close in 90 days, Intel said.
L. Hucksowser (or whatever her name is) didn't like what she heard and Down graded the stock... Now the stock is down 3.points and bank still has 10Million shares it says it wants to repurchase. Sure bank would like to buy back stock @ 20.00 rather then 23.00. All these excess Bank properties from the Steller One merger will be hard to move even by Cush-Wake.. Have seen several with signs that say reduced on them and still the properties aren't moving. Commercial Real estate is a slow mover in the Central part of Virginia for older bank properties...: (
