RE: "No shady transactions!" Many Opel investors would strongly disagree with that. For example the time Opel issued a PR carefully worded to give the impression a milestone had been achieved without explicitly saying so. Many investors asked for clarification from Opel: was this, or was it not, a milestone. Opel refused to say. Later it became evident that it was NOT a milestone. I'd call that pretty shady.
