I have to agree with what you've said, it doesn't look good. It's hard to believe that ROAG appeared to have come so far and were right there ready to turn the corner and they stop reporting, was it all smoke and mirrors. The only way we find out is if they start reporting again or if not a lawsuit would tell us what happened to our investment, hope it doesn't come to that! I know what a defendant would say, "the filings indicated that this was a high risk investment", of course, however that only pertains to a legitimate operation and would not cover a scam!
I could be wrong but there is a Joe Poe jr. on Linkedin that indicates he is a merger and acquisition consultant from April 2023 to present. That start date is pretty close to the date of the last filing for ROAG which was May 15th of 2023 for the quarter that ended March 31st of 2023. The experience listed indicates that he was the CEO of PUBCO for the past 6 years and 7 months. Prior to that everything listed for the last 20 years closely matches our ROAG CEO's resume.
The last sentence of your post said, "Let's hope I'm wrong", I'll end my post with the same sentence related to the Joe Poe jr. on Linkedin, who I believe is our Joe Poe jr. Let's hope I'm wrong!
I CAN ONLY HOPE POE JR DOES SUMPIN SOME DAY BEFORE ROAG GETS TOTALLY SHUT DOWN FER LACK OF REPORTING ,I FEEL LUCKY THAT HAS NOT HAPPENED YET ,SUMPIN TELLS ME WERE SCREWED BIG TIME HERE ,LET'S HOPE I'M WRONG.
It's been quite awhile since we've received an update from the CEO. Seems not long ago there was a PR every few weeks if not a couple per quarter and now nothing. What's up with the acquisition of Human Brands, sure would be nice to see an update Mr. CEO! Could we be getting close to completion with that acquisition, as a shareholder it would be nice to know!
He never did pump the heck out of it but did string us all along with the hope that this would come to frutation if everyone had the patience.
Stohlman changed his last name and is awaiting or may in fact be in jail already. Thought Joe was gonna do better especially after he put so much time, effort and dollars into this thing
Green for the record I saw that post Joe never says he was friends with Bill and Jeff he was asked if he knew who they were and he said yes he knew them never said he was friends with them.
Maybe he was trying to pull another scam of his and got cold feet remember he is tight with the Fitx group Jeff Thomas ,Joel Stohlman , Lamia & Bahige Chaaban don't forget.
I agree with you. I don't understand what happened all of the hard work was already done. Cleaning up the tax returns with probably not much cooperation from the previous CEO. Now the tax returns are simple and he just walked away. I see him posting pictures on his Facebook account once or twice a week. Just don't get it?
I am having a hard time understanding what is happening with ROAG, nothing makes any sense right now! They are behind on the filings and not even a late notice filing, nothing, just nothing! Then they are called out by the SEC and given 10 days to respond to the inquiry and again, nothing or so it appears! This appears to be deliberate and is just unacceptable, how do you not respond to the governing body to where your business is registered? Maybe there is some sort of correspondence and if there is, it is well hidden! How can you come so far and then just walk away as it appears that's what the CEO has done! I'm sure there are lot of people who have their hard earned money invested in this stock who trusted the CEO and would like some sort of answers to what is going on with the company. I'll leave it at that!
Joe Poe surrounds himself with people that exploit stock trading regulations and leave investors with nothing always all the time by his own account Bahige Chaaban & Lamia Chaaban are close friends. That's why he took over Fitx before road to smooth over the Stohlman fiasco and talk about launching tequila drinks now
Just a few people who've sold their tequila companies...
My favorite tequila is Casamigos Anejo
Here are some famous people who have sold their tequila businesses for a lot of money:
George Clooney: In 2017, George Clooney and his business partners sold their tequila company, Casamigos, to Diageo for $700 million, with the potential to earn an additional $300 million if the tequila continues to sell well over the next 10 years.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson: In 2022, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson sold his tequila company, Teremana, to Constellation Brands for $300 million, with the potential to earn up to $1 billion if the tequila continues to sell well over the next 10 years.
Kendall Jenner: In 2021, Kendall Jenner sold a 51% stake in her tequila company, 818, to Diageo for $60 million, with the potential to earn an additional $335 million if the tequila continues to sell well over the next 10 years.
Rita Ora: In 2021, Rita Ora sold a majority stake in her tequila company, Próspero, to Mexican spirits producer Becle for an undisclosed amount.
Justin Timberlake: In 2014, Justin Timberlake sold his tequila company, Sauza 901, to Beam Suntory for $100 million.
The shortage of blue agaves in jalisco, mexico are driving prices up. I commend the company for going for the high end business with a more aged agave harvest. There are many very healthy businesses in the tequila world. There are many companies that are publicly traded. The point is that this is a good business to be in.
DOES IT MATTER IF THE FILINGS ARE NEVER TAKEN CARE OF LIKE THEY ARE NOW? I'M YHINKING WE GET SKUNKED BEFORE ALL IS SAID AND DONE.
MANAGEMENT IS GONNA SEND US TO GUTTER IMO...........
IF ANY OF US EVER MAKE A SCORE HERE ,I'LL BE SHOCKED ,I HOPE AND PRAY I'M WRONG BUT IF HISTORY COUNTS FER ANYTHING ,IT'S NOT GOOD FER US HOME TEAMERS.......
This will take more time...even possibly years. The planting of 30,000 blue agaves this year is a good sign. Also the plan to grow the agaves to maturity (10 to 12 years). The plan to harvest and produce a low cost tequila this year likely to cover production and harvest costs. Planting tequila starts The little blue agave starts are called hijuelos. They are small, clonal offsets that grow from the base of the mature agave plant. Hijuelos are often used to propagate new agave plants. I can wait an extra few years for the more mature agaves to produce a high end tequila from existing maturing crop. The stock price should begin the rise with the high end tequila production and sale. Waiting for the high end tequila production and sale. Just my view here.
Cannot find a response from the CEO to the SEC and I would say were pretty close to the 10 days they were given to respond. If it's calendar days then the 10 days have passed, if it's business day's then they have a couple days to go, not looking good!
AGREED , NUTTIN TO PROTECT , ONLY LONGER TERM HOLDERS TO GET SCREWED ,THE MANAGEMENT HAS NOT EVER BEEN ONTIME TO DO ANYTHING ,I'M SADLY THINKING THIS EVENT WILL BE NO DIFFERENT ,I HOPE I'M WRONG , JOE PLEASE PROVE ME WRONG............
Depends on costs associated with getting current. Might cost more than they want to invest and are just ready to take a write of here. However, you would think It is a lot that was put in here initially to just walk away from.
Just curious what your thoughts are regarding Ryan Dolder and Janon Costley who as you know are 2 officers of the company, I believe Dolder is the CEO of Human brands and is listed as the CFO of Rogue while Costley is COO of Human Brands and is also listed as COO of Rogue. Those 2 individuals certainly have a vested interest in Rogue as Dolder purchased 1,036,850 shares at .05/sh in mid to late 2021, while Costley purchased 4,039,370 shares also at .05/sh in mid to late 2021. Between the two of them that is a lot of cash that was used to purchase those shares unless that was some type of payment by the company to them for their services. The way it's reported on a Form 4 the transaction code is P, transaction code P is defined as an Open market or private purchase of securities!
So it appears that these 2 individuals have a lot to lose if Rogue ultimately folds, you would think that they being officers of the company with a vested interest like they have should be doing everything within their power to assist the CEO in getting everything up to date, yet we haven't heard much of anything this past year!
Any comments would be appreciated!
I have to agree about the SEC protecting investors, how are you protecting investors when you halt a stock prior to saying anything about that same stock being in default. Out of the dark the next thing that you know is that you have a boatload of shares just sitting there and unable to do anything with them, that's what they call being protected!
Let's hope that the CEO pulls a rabbit out of the hat, at the very least we should hear something about the late financials!
Well they got 10 days to respond. Guess we will find out soon enough……
I love how the litigation talks about protecting investors, because it really does nothing but screw everyone over who is stuck on EM. That old argument of protecting investors doesn’t hold merit under new rules since Retail is not in danger as they can’t buy on expert market.
STARTING TO LOOK LIKE JOE JR IS GONNA FAIL US ,HOPE I'M WRONG............
I read this from Human brands as they're not communicating with Joe Poe. That would surprise me being that they're the only company in the holding company you would think there would be some communication. I understand that they can't come out and openly say what those conversations were. But the flavor of that post seems like they're out of the loop.
From the Human Brand website directly from the CEO, More information will be provided as it becomes available. Please stay tuned for further Company news and updates. That little quote has to be close to 2 years old and there are a lot of shareholders waiting for those updates that the CEO mentioned. Not even a late filing stating that they will be late again which seems to be the norm as of late. Would be nice to see an update and better yet, the filings being caught up so that the stock begins trading again. Been a long road and quite discouraging this past year waiting for the filings to be caught up!
Agreed - just beyond frustrating at this point. Especially as Joe Poe did so well with FPFI.
I agree with you 100%, the fact that Dolder and Costley both bought a significant number of shares with no indication that they sold any of them and you have to know that the CEO has a larger number of shares also, plenty incentive right there to get the filings up tp date. There has to be something that we're not aware of that's holding up the filings, what ever it is let us hope they get it resolved in the near future!
If we lose so does the CEO and other board members.
This hasn't even been a successful Pump & Dump.
Very frustrating - hopefully they can get their sorry asses together.
I believe the 2nd quarter 10-Q will deliver what the CEO has said in the past, the only issue is when, it's not any week now, any month now, any quarter now, but what year will this be filed, 2023, 2024, or possibly 2025?
What is your take on this eagerly anticipated filing, do you feel like we'll see it any time soon? I say what I say and ask what I ask because it seems like the quarters are clicking by faster than the company is catching up, in other words, the company is losing ground! I know that the CEO states quite clearly in all the most recent filings ( past year and a half ) that this stock may never trade again or that it is high risk and be prepared for the possibility that anyone could lose their entire investment, that's kind of where we are at the present. The company is being very quiet with virtually no updates other than a late filing.
Hope you enjoyed your 4th and let us keep up hope that we begin trading again in the near future!
“The 2nd quarter 10-Q will show the consolidated financials of our recent acquisition of Human Brands which will show a significant increase in assets and revenues of the company. Due to unforeseen personnel changes due to illness and the scope of work required , we are unable to file this Q2 on time. We anticipate filing the 2nd quarter 10-Q in short order.”
You can't trust people that did business with Bill Chaaban..
Could've but,hmmm,you take over a company n I would assume someone is bilingual. Guess language barrier is as funny as letting filing lapse because someone was real real sick for month after month..Guess we have 1st graders that took over this company..
I never ever saw any reason other than the unexpected sickness. I guess anytime any of us get sick it's unexpected but we don't get a year behind paying our bills, mowing the grass or washing the car! I say that in jest, certainly things could've been quite complicated because of the language barrier!
Did we ever find out why they stopped filing right after being all caught up?...besides someone was sick for a year
Thanks for the list.
Let's hope we start getting filing momentum!
The most recent filing that was posted yesterday was the turning point in that this filing pretty much details the acquisition of Human Brands and makes it official. I haven't read through the entire filing and I certainly will in the next day or two. If this is the turning point filing then I would guess the missing or late filings for the past year will be much easier to complete, therefor I would expect to see them filed in the very near future.
I do believe that everything will move along much quicker since it appears that we've turned the proverbial corner!
Well there is a lot of info on the businesses. Curious if inventory, revenues etc are anywhere near those numbers from 2021 or even better.
Be nice to get a current status update. We now need
Then filings are up to date so long as OTCmarkets doesn’t jerk them around for changes/revisions…..
Oh yes sir, certainly nice to see this filing, quite a lot of info included in this filing. Like you mentioned, there may be more filings on the way in the very near future which should give us a road map where we are and where were going! This 10Q seems to indicate a lot of positive developments so we'll see, looking a considerably better today then it did yesterday!
Everyone have a great day...............!
Great question. I don't know the answer, but maybe somebody on here can enlighten us.
