sometimes a new leader is required to take the difficult steps in cost reductions
Are you (and the IR team) saying this will happen??
If, by some miracle or divine intervention, possibly even regulatory or judicial intervention, that ever happens ...
... then DDI might have a chance of surviving
But the harsh truth is ..
They lost big
money on big contracts before
They lost money on small contracts before
They lost money when the sector was HOT
They lost money when the sector was down
Now the GOM is HOT and they can't compete and hold onto the TINY sliver of the market that they had for years in their own back yard
So now you expect shareholders to believe they landed a high-margin order in a frontier area where infrastructure is minimal?
Little scraps of work that the big companies didn't bother with? Group them together and $4M sounds big, but it's not.
- massive dilution within 6 months, probably sooner
- no change in the actual "leadership" of the company or control of the BOD
- repeated delays and a loss on the latest group of orders
- continued drop in "backlog" as revenues continue to lag indicating a lack of new orders coming in
Any challengers wanna make a bet?
