Oh contraire, mon ami. As employees they get paid salaries in the millions to figure out how to relocate the company assets to their back pockets. Since the assets are a direct result of money placed into their hands to manage for the benefit of the shareholders, I'd say they care immensely for the investor class. They surely care for what they can get from the investors for themselves. Without the investor there would be no pig trough. My only wish was that the stock never had recovered above five bucks until they had restarted the div, thereby preventing them the windfall that they are reaping from the exercise of their options. IMHO.
Frankly, with this management, I'm surprised the stock is over 10. Best time to sell was three years ago when it was over 16. Who knows whether it will ever get over 16 again. After all, they voted themselves cash bonuses now.
Well your question is moronic. Why is it taking so long? Ask yourself why the nav stopped rising when they stopped buying back the stock last year. The cash flow that they were using to buyback the stock was still flowing. That's 500 million dollars. Where did it go? They are such talented money managers that they sold Mirion for 300 million less than its worth. That was after a decade or longer of preaching how they won't sell investments until they can get their worth. Those two issues alone account for $3/share nav. Now go listen to the last cc wherein Malon states all the employees, including him, will be selling their options before the split. Why is taking so long? What moronic question. Because it takes time to fleece the investors.
