hardasset, Always looking at a 1/2 empty glass can be very misleading. <br /> <br /> Instead of thinking in terms of dollars with regard to the escrowed shares and the significance of same. Think in terms of percentages. <br /> <br /> In other words with regard to the secured Debenture, what percent of the O/S do the escrowed shares represent? <br /> <br /> Just for the sake of the example using rough lumbar here, It looks to me like around 30% of the O/S is held in escrow to secure the debenture. I would say that is quite a significant percentage wouldn't you? And do you even know why there is a secured debenture in the first place? and in the second place, have you ever seen a pinkie with a secured debenture much less a CTA and NFA pinkie? <br /> <br /> The glass suddenly looks a lot more then 1/2 full to me.
