Super - someone on here posted that, but the story was that neither Ralph nor the CPA firm ever checked with the T/A. Since 2008! A poster on this board did check with the T/A, and was then told the corrected O/S balance of 2 billion shares. (up from management's stated approx. 1.2 billion shs). That started an interim panic sell.
Management excuse was somehow the 2008 event causing this difference was somehow overlooked.
Could be a T/A problem in here somewhere, personally I doubt it, but certainly possible.
