Orange21 refusal to merge with No Fear was a huge business mistake just like their refusal to get bought out by CB for $3.50 a share.
I wish No Fear and Gatorz the best of luck. Mark Simo will get the last laugh if No Fear/Gatorz ends up doing well.
Hopefully, the management can turn this company around or better yet Costa Brava will try to acquire/buy out Orange21 again like the unsuccessfully did 2 years ago
You seem like a very intelligent person with the inner knowledge of corperate management.
I enjoy reading all of your threads about the meade management or the lack thereof.
anyhow, let me throw this one out there. Lets say that you are the personal advisor to the new CEO, what would you advise him to do to turn meade around?
Please take my above question seriously and write a full report detailing what you think the new CEO should do to turn mead around to the old mead of the early and late 90s that we used to be proud of.
lol. listen here kid you are pathetic.
loading up? If Meade was such a good deal with you Nikon and Mutual fund clams then why haven't you bought any more shares.
the current volume is 30,000. I highly doubt that you are responsible for 30,000 shares.
Who here thinks Digital Jungle is the world biggest idiot?
Please chime in
P.S. Digital jungle is a predictable kid. He will come back and sai "you have been reported for bashing my good name."
I am a loyal meade customer and stockholder but I cant stand that digital jungle kid. He is annoying and all he does is hype up the stock.
Digital Jungle: if you want to help Meade then I politely ask you to STFU. Your comments and daily rants does nothing but hurt the stock.
sorry, my mistake. I am not good with dates.
Nikon might be a good canidate but I am 99.9% certain that the buyout will be with a investment group rather than a company.
the investment group plans to take meade private.
they are offering to buy meade for a little over a $1 or a 700% premimium over the last 6 month moving average.
The buyout plan will most likely go through because there are hardly any insitutional investors left so approval is likely. However, approval is not likely is the Meade CEO and board of director is afraid of giving up their power once meade goes private.
NOTE: I posted this thread almost a year ago.
The buyout is not with Nikon but a group of Asian investor that is trying to get a strong foothold on an american company and the american market (western market). There is no better time to buy when a company such as meade is so affordable right now since they ar struggling.
I agree with going private if they can save Meade. I own two meade telescopes and I love them. They have great products but just freakin poor management.
Who is in favor of mead going private?
This isn't the first time MEADE is struggling. In the past its orginal owner had to come back in and rescue the company. Where is he now?
on your post you mentioned the September meeting. when is the next meeting where the decision will be made?
What kind of collaborations is ASTM doing with any other drug/pharma/biomedical companies out there?
on the website ASTM talked about collaborations but I dont see any mentioned of any companies.
I need to know because I am curious if ASTM is receiving any milestone payments.
Also look at the heavy transactions on:
6NOV08 for over 16 million shares
20NOV08 for over 14 million shares
there is definately "inside trading"
Sharp announce Italy Solar Operation. Wants to have partnership with "unname existing solar company"
STP open office in Italy
STP secure order for Italy Solar Project.
Make the connection people! Sharp and STP are joining up. The rumor is that Sharp is buying STP might not sound too outlandish now huh?
