    OSPN will be sold!! This is a very attractive company for a large bank, financial network, or company like docusign or Checkpoint. They have extremely valuable clients and IP. Unfortunately they are exposed to the same issues as the banking sector, which has taken a very hard hit during the pandemic. I have said in the past that they would be sold for $30/share. I am standing by this prediction, and the drop in price has made the company more attractive to buyers and reduced the buyout price. While revenue has dropped due to the unprecedented conditions globally, I do not believe the long term value of the company has been affected. Nothing wrong with establishing a position at this level or averaging here.

    Related to the new board member, nietzel, looks to be a tremendous pick. Nietzel is on the board of crnc, and since crnc has gone public about a year ago, it has gone from $12 to $67. I sure he can get ospn to perform like that. I sure wish I had found that company, cerence, a year ago

    Will go to 13-14 in few days. Like someone said it is a disastrous quarter guidance is the one typically drive the stock up and down. Really bad guidance so no hope here...... Dumping is recommended.

    Nietzel has a solid background, but it’s 100% accounting and finance. Unless their accounting problems are a lot worse than they’ve let on I don’t see his value. Better hope that’s not the case. The YE numbers have to be audited and certified. That’ll be telling.

    Serious question. After this disaster qtr with no warning and guidance for another 20% haircut for Q4 how can the stock hold the teens. The final insult is that admin costs actually increased y/y in Q3. Must be legal fees. Any possibility of survival?

    This Company, my goodness, just terrible performance. I am not surprised Ken sold at $30 and then took off; probably the Company advised him to leave. $203 million of guidance????

    I started following "awesomestokcalerts" (Gooogle it - off course without any space or dash in between the words) and their notifications are better than anyone else.

    For anyone that looks at this board: While the "earnings" per share number is below the "estimate", with the company again reaffirming guidance the company is saying that the remainder of the year will be 2 of the best quarters ever. They already have many recurring revenue accounts in place due to licensing and their transition to software rather than hardware, and that total is increasing arithmetically each quarter. They have also agreed to "explore all options" to increase shareholder value including potentially a sale of the company, as stated in their previous ER's. The 2 new board members will also aid the company in executing their growth goals. The company just had a $22 price target placed on the stock and I think this is a realistic target given the revenue projections and the net income forecast of nearly $25 million for the year. I have a sizable position in the stock and will be adding on any dip this morning. There are nothing but positives looking forward for this company and the need for cybersecurity and fraud protection in the financial and insurance markets is enormous as well as the size of the overall market.

    Anonymous, I agree with you that the post Investor Day reaction in the stock is NOT what I thought would happen, but I listened via webcast and I do not recall them revising any numbers including their 2019 guidance. So to your comment about maybe they were going to revise, I still do not believe that occurred.

    I posted right after the last ER that the company would be reporting positive surprises and 2 BIG quarters coming up, since they kept their full year guidance in place. Well, now they have increased their guidance by 10%---or $20 MILLION----which is HUGE! this will also further the possibility of a takeout. This stock is heading to $25 before the next ER. Hope yoou got in or added when the stock was down(for no good reason). I did.

    I agree on them being a buyout candidate. Friday on Fast Money Special Edition the group discussed cyber-security companies like PANW, Crowdstrike, and others. The net takeaway was the next year there should be a lot of M&A in this space.
