Gary, it was frustratng wasn't it? You should have stood up and asked RR to explain why GS downgraded to a sell with a price of $11. I'll bet Kevin introduced himself to you and engaged you in conversation so you didn't feel stiffed for making the effort to attend. After a few days you will feel stiffed...like on Feb 5th!
Gary is describing exactly what transpired at last year's meeting. Introductions of BOD's with CI reps on speaker phone never saying a thing and RR spews 5 minutes of vote counts and then opens up to questions from 2 shareholders, LT and Pig. I'll bet Kevin sat next to Gary as he did with us. They purposely seek out the shareholders that show up. They are acutely aware of a stranger in the room. Kevin interacted with us for 45 minutes after the meeting also. Looking back, it was all a bunch of BS as Gary will come to find out. This is exactly why I chose to cancel my flight to San Jose...a big waste of time and $! Annual "Shareholder" Meeting my #$%$.
Don't take drug addicts personally! I know the both of us are well prepared for whatever comes our way. There are some on this board that aren't so fortunate.
We'll see an 8K today or tomorrow. RR and gang might have stayed up and partied late into the night after scamming us for another year so filing will be a few hours late.
Kevin Faulkner yesterday before the meeting. I actually got a response that essentially said I'm just one of many who have voiced their disappointment nd that I have been heard. I think people like Opal should, on a regular basis, email Kevin and let him know how you feel. We clearly have no voice or control but what's our alternative? I believe they want our shares and will beat us into submission by working the stock price down further. Who's strong enough? Me
There won't be any news from this meeting! Yes, there will be an 8 k filed tomorrow with results of the proxy. I'll go out on a limb and predict all recommendations passed handily. This meeting, I'm sure only lasted 45 minutes. Am I right Gary? It's a joke! Later this evening I will share a response to my email to Kevin Faulkner. LT and I had a long conversation with him after last year's meeting. These guys are con men and I got suckered in.
LT, almost two years ago, RR said his new revenue model would kick in in the second half of 2014. Now it's 2016 as his last CC lowered guidance for all of 2015. What is it RR and when is it RR????? Attending today's meeting would probably put me over the edge and I would not have been as polite as last year.
Maybe this is why I chose not to attend again this year...the markets were blasted that day along with NUANCE. This year seems to fit the same pattern. Total coincidence I know but we're snake bitten with this one.
It's like we're all throwing in the towel. I see company after company warn for 2015. Is it RR's turn to warn after 3 years of "just misses"?
Regardless of how you defend your interest in posting on this board, you come across as disgruntled. I personally know many on this board and all have invested " upon a solid vision, record of execution, and financial performance" with all the companies we buy. We share our investment ideas and we listen! Like CI, we also get it wrong sometimes. The good part for us is that our basis is in the single digits. I don't think it's odd for the legitimte investors here to take offense to your constant pouncing even though we accept where you're coming from. It's just truly strange to see you hiding in the bush, stalking your prey!
I'm far, far, far from a naysayer...just have become a negative nilly over the last three years while maintaining full ownership in every share I ever bought. I do appreciate your optimism but at this point, I'd take anything over $20 and run for the hills!
Not defending anyone's position here but you, our former NUAN employee, are like a tiger in the bush...always waiting to pounce! So curious
