Cavey leaving is no surprise since he arranged his own "golden parachute". Why bother working and be the whipping boy. He'll get paid handsomely for being the "I told you so" guy. I'll give Stark the benefit of the doubt for now as he may have had no real power and just was forced to go along with whatever Cavey demanded.
My favorite quote from BTN's proxy to justify why they needed the poison pill is "in order to protect the Company’s stockholders from a creeping acquisition of control without payment of a control premium to all stockholders".
I think what they failed to mention is that there is a clause that enables the current BOD to cash in IF there is a change in control, premium or no premium.
Whatever the color is, I urge all shareholders to read the Fundamental Global proxy as they show how BTN management has screwed up their acquisitions and have essentially backed BTN management into a corner whereby the current Board of Directors only option was to adopt a Poison Pill to protect their own interests.
Nothing that long time shareholders haven't known for years. is in this filing...but it is worth noting that revenues have obviously declined due to the end of the digital projector conversion and management decided to get into businesses it had no prior experience in. Management painted a rosy picture of accretive earnings that never panned out and probably never will unless new blood is brought in to LEAD the company.
