How can Brad give "precise information" on things that are in process and have lots of moving parts (like a future financing). If he said something was definite when in reality it was indefinite then he would be skewered by people who would say he lied when things didn't work out the way he said they would. Some things have to be vague. As well, I think strategically ONC/Y should never tip its hand in terms of financings. In some cases you don't want to be transparent because it will be used against you.
