We had our chance to rid ourselves of him last month. Another year of him might just kill this company. Pumpers are blind and that won't change.
Can't believe he was so bad. We need a front man or woman who can sell the INO story. This is a disgrace. I can't believe the pumpers don't see this as a huge mistake and blown opp. Breaks like don't come along very often and to totally blow it is hard to accept. CEO or not, he didn't get it done by a long shot. This sell off should wake him and the BOD up.
Is Tokman alive? Anyone seen any signs of life in Redmond? Are they all on vacation? Dilution set yet? Any signs of Qualper or View Smart, or Pico Bit? Has anyone bought any of those products? Is there a new engine out there yet?
Yup, remember Ed very well. Favorite were neighborhood friends Danny and the Juniors, so I go back a way myself. Real tired of First and Goal taking the better part of 8 years to arrive. This guy is terrible. Never knew a CEO who didn't know anything about the product and tech his company was trying to sell. This NDA stuff is red herring, the guy is a joke.
Come on, he is the CEO. He wasn't prepared for the golden opportunity he had. I just viewed both spots and he did OK with Bloomberg, but the CNBC spot was his to hit one out. Ambush? I doubt that. That crew knows their business and presented Kim with a golden shot and he misfired. If you aren't prepared, don't go. He should never look dumb founded when it comes to our tech and our trials and products. Ball was in his court.
Can't say I disagree HAB, but this guy went to conferences last year to get the word out in September and by November we saw a 30% decline in Institutional ownership. I would love to see him turn the corner and have the street and investors see results and confidence in his ability to bring this to market, but it hasn't happened yet and I hold little hope that it ever will. As I said, I am here for a long, long time and will see it play out because I don't think he can kill the tech. Good wishes to all longs weather they like him or hate him. I think he saw Field of Dreams to much and thinks he has built it, they will come. Hoping he is right.
I think the tech is mature enough, and according to Tokman lasers are no longer an issue. What I can't figure out is why none of the big names are using this yet? I can't figure where the bottleneck is? I am convinced it is a production issue. Weather or not it is with us or STM or Mitsu or Sony, or, or, or, there is a production issue. He knows what it is and most likely when it will be solved, but he won't tell us. He will continue to issue shares and take his bennies, and continue to let us connect dots that never seem to go where we think they should. He is good at what he does and it isn't being CEO of a great company with amazing tech.
Listen HAB, Tokman has set this up so he doesn't ever have to give shareholders anything he doesn't want to talk about and it only occurs at cc's. I have never seen a company so cloaked in secrecy with no consideration for the folks who pay the bills. It doesn't have to be this way, it is the way a foreign language, poor English speaking CEO wants it. For all the NDA's and foreign customers there is ample room for the company to keep investors a where of advancements and foreign sales and production capabilities. We know the tech is mature, we know lasers are no longer a problem, per Tokman, we know Sony is the lead, and we have putrid guidance. I believe the guidance is accurate and I'm looking for a surprise like everybody else, but not happy with Tokman. I believe in more capable hands we would be over $3 right now and heading norlth. Been here forever and will see this through, but this guy is bad at his job.
This great tech lies in the hands of the two biggest fumblers in the CE space, Tokman and Sony. Keep that in mind. Sony had it all with Beta, and the Walkman, and were the best in TV. Tokman just can't get started and lacks the ability to handle his CEO responsibilities. You are asking a lot VOR.
Tokman tried that last September with conferences and by November he lost 30% of what we had before the conferences. I don't know what he told them, but if it was anything like the guidance he gave us I understand the exit. I believe he just doesn't get it. He doesn't appear very smart. That cover photo of him last week with his new rubber band shooter wasn't very complimentary either.
