    Reading that PR, it is an estimate of revenue, not the actual, but it will be close.

    "...Preliminary Fiscal Q1 2015 Results
    Based on preliminary financial results, the company expects to report revenue of approximately $7.3 million for the first fiscal quarter. This is in line with the guidance provided on May 8, 2014, and would represent a 25% increase from the same year-ago period.

    Bookings (defined as the dollar value of contracts signed, including new orders and renewals) are expected to increase approximately 25% year-over-year to $8.0 million for the first fiscal quarter..."

    Maybe they pulled it because they thought it might spark some hope and renewed bullish interest in the SP, which could cause some crazy investor speculation and drive the price upward ever-so-slightly!!! Cant have that.

    Why won't someone buy Hipcricket?

    failed to see your point greg. Investing in microcap is a gamble. Sometimes you win; most the time you don't. As a share holder, still interested in my investment, of course I am concerned about an exit. Hipp is just taking too much time and languishing along the bottom for way too long, and many are sick of it and want out. I assume you would be glad to get something more for your free shares?

    Management seems only capable of stuffing our money into their own pockets, and not running a company. Its time someone do something.

    xtj,
    Are you on the other MB? You should bring some of your comments and join the discussion there. I believe there are some there that might entertain some discussion of this sort. Some SH initiative is certainly warranted.

    xtj,
    That makes a strong case for shareholders or someone to take it private with VC, then clean it up, clawback all the graft, and sell or IPO it. The SHs should find interested VC.

    Sentiment: Sell

    The RS BS...

    A RS is probably doomed to failure and likely to only work with much better managed companies. At this point, it is not in the interest of shareholders, and the company's current track record has demonstrated a RS would likely result in SP being beaten back down by dilution and shorting. We are better off with organic growth and work toward exit with activist shareholders giving management hell, holding their feet to the flame whenever they are screwing the pooch, which seems to be most of the time.

    However RS, as risky as it is, it can be done as a desperate last measure. There is always a small chance it would work.

    bigdaddy, i have seen this thing struggle for more than a decade and a half. It has always been managed by clowns in a circus, with the exception of the original (surfnet) founders. The fact that the company has a 95% prior year, now and 90% retention rate, has to do with the fast growing market/industry and early (first mover) entry with good technology, more-so than management. Good management would have amplified the advantage, but the clown management only lost them/us whatever advantage was had at one time. The early entry advantage has been squandered and we have been overtaken by more capable players leaving hipp to pick up the crumbs. Oh what might have been!!

    You only get so much opportunity and advantage, and when you blow it, how tragic and stupid are you? It does not take an eternity and cost $100+ million to get to B/E, unless you totally screw it up at every turn.

    mara did a 1:13 RS just shy of a year ago, and is at $9 which is double where is was just prior, so it can work. Although, as you say drummer, its more probable with a well run company, and hip is a bit shy in that respect. Lets hope it can still improve. When you have nothing else, you can always hope. (

    Greg, not defending siri, he can do that himself, but he has always resisted calls for RS in the past. I am not for RS either and have been against the idea in the past as well, but if that would put things on a better footing, then why not? Maybe even get to Nadsaq, or at least Amex.

    If you dont like that idea, what would you do if you were captain and had the hammer and a bag of plugs to plug the holes in the bottom of the boat?

    Cut More Costs (And Stamp Out Bureaucracy)

    The old group seemed to think the name is the 'Top Heavy Employment Agency' Hopefully that era ends now. Cut away the fat. If employed there and holding stock options, I would rather have the shares gain traction and appreciate by the company hitting CFBE in a fast growing industry, even if it means imposing a haircut across the board.

    Yahoo Appeal

    obi, I was not aware that they had already denied the appeal. You are probably right, other than try to expose all the bad apples on the court, they may just as well accept that the system is rigged and live with it. If you are not in that club, you are not allowed justice. Congressmen will only use their cause to grandstand for attention and will not do anything either.
    The entire incestuous nest of vipers (congress, courts, executive, big money) needs to be sent packing with an entirely new and improved system put in its place.

    Yahoo Appeal

    Obi, I will always preface my comments by saying that I am not a lawyer, and have little knowledge or experience with legal matters, but have been involved with patents. I am not sure how prior art falls out, but as i understand what happened with Leader, the jury found FB had infringed on all 11 counts as you say, then they ruled that the patent was ineligible based on the bar-sale rule if there is a sale or attempt to sell prior to 1 year of filing, which is what I understand to be the appeal. The ruling sounds contrived.

    I do not know the actual circumstance of what transpired, but only what has been published. What is particularly disturbing about the case is the plaintiff's (Leader) claim of massive misconduct by their own attorneys being bought off by FB and persuaded to abandon Leader, then become the attorneys for FB. If true, it grievous misconduct by that law firm, and a clear conflict of interest. Then there are allegations that Zuckerbug hacked the e-mail account of the son of the man who's patent a jury said FB had infringed on.

    According to what I have read, the son attended the same university as Zuckerbag at the same time, and it is known that Zuckerbuck was hacking the e-mail and other systems on the campus at the time, and it was made very clear in the movie about FB/Zuckerburp that he swindled the 2 Winklevoss brothers out of the FB roots. Apparently the ideas for this entire project were floating around, some legitimately secured through patents (Leader), and some an ad hoc attempt to bootstrap something (winkelvoss's); but Zuckerbird was not the originator of any of it.

    It was shown that some of the original FB models were virtually exact copies of the material diagrams that Leader's son had in his e-mail box. It could all be co-incident, but not likely. Usually where there is smoke, there is a fire.

    I for one hope Leader wins the appeal and FB is forced to fork over 50 or BBBBBig ones or more, but I wont hold my breath.

    Shortly after the hearing was conducted, I listened and came to pretty much the same conclusion as you to why it should come back favoring hipp, but you can never predict these things. My opinion of the courts is that there are political considerations injected often if the stakes are high enough; even at the level of the CAFC. Someone posted an article about the leader/facebook appeal which demonstrated that.

    If you look it up, and read it, you will be astounded how FB gets away with what they have. Federal circuit cheif judge Randall Rader is connected with a scandal involving that case and just resigned rather that stay after getting caught. Ironically this could help the hipp case if he is connected to our appeal in any way, being a source of corruption. It sure seems that judge Spero was very unfair in his ruling to begin with.

    The political considerations have to do with money, and not letting anyone outside of the club upset the cart. An appeal favoring hipp still has the potential to upset the cart in a pretty big way with numerous companies and some sizable amounts of cash.

    Well the fact that it 'may' be on a thursday instead of friday, 'may' indicate the numbers would only be horrible and not disastrous, which is what one might infer if it were on friday. 'Good News'!!!
