VYST Insiders**$20 Million Invested Since Inception & Form 4s...
This is an older post that I made regarding VYST Insiders investing $20 Million into the company since its inception along with its Form 4s filed with the SEC. There might have been some minor pieces of information that has changed, but the gist of the information still stands for the most part: https://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=150289912 Below is confirmation of that Insiders of VYST have invested $20,000,000 in VYST since its inception:
Quote: Key Point #4**VYST Key Ownership Confirmation via Form 4s
After speaking to the company, I learned that Insiders own over 75% of the company (based on the old OS). I was told that in the ten years since the Inside ownership has been owning their shares, there has been not one sell. I was told that this can be confirmed via the hundreds of Form 4s filed with the SEC as some of them are very prominent people of which are on the Board for the company. I counted over 280 ownership forms filed, but I won’t go through them all as I will try to only highlight a few key prominent VYST personnel and Board Members. Even though some might not be Board Members anymore, they still are shareholders and provide major input for their investment into VYST and still have a vested interest in their success:
