Good to see you brought your bodyguards along...

Very cool as well!

One would imagine that has to have a positive effect on the stock price as well.

Family of Board, CEO, 2 GMs, Finance and 3 Sales people. Lots of folks you are correct. I was surprised. Thought it was like 10.

One guy on our Board is a former Police Commissioner of NYC. My company was started by a few Israeli Intelligence officers. You are not far off.

After Alexander left the United States on June 21, 2006 on a pre-planned annual vacation in Israel,[3] his lawyers arranged with American authorities that he would return to face indictment on July 30, 2006; however, he instead traveled to Germany. On July 31 he was added to the FBI's Most Wanted List.[4]

That event was because we officially separated from Comverse Holdings as of Monday. We bought back their 51% controlling interest in our stock and became a 100% publicly owned company.

It is great to be free of that company because of that mess, but there are many advisors who feel strongly about our company.

He was the CEO of a company, Comverse Technology, that I bought into back in 1992. My investment was small, around $5K.

I watched over the next eight years as the stock went from the $4-5 range to well over $100 a share.

Then it all came crashing down as he was charged with stock manipulation and absconded with millions of dollars.

So yes, at the peak, the stock I bought for $5K was worth over $120K, which is well over six figures.

OK, this one is STRICTLY an English language question (and not an attempt to be a richard):

If somebody says "in excess of X figures", I was - until today - under the impression that the sentence MUST be read as "at least X+1", as in "You will be paid in excess of 5 figures = Your salary will be 100,000+."

By the same logic "my losses were in excess of 6 figures = I lost 1,000,000+"

(and "I lost $120K" would be "I lost 6 figures")

Am I wrong?

Yeah that was my thought. "Well in excess of six figures" does not strike me as $20k above the bare minimum required to even achieve six figures.

Six figures is $100,000.

Excess of Nthat amount is $100,000.01

But quite frankly, I've much more transparent than is necessary, so I have no idea what the objective is here...

.. Unless its to be a Richard

i'm the counting expert around here... one, two, three, four, five, six... yup. six figures. and technically didn't you only lose 5k, epp? isn't that what your investment was, and thus that's what was lost?
