Geeknet (GKNT) Q3 Numbers Release Date Nov 4 (1). Extraordinary Gain pending re: ohloh.net and Collabnet? [more]
Geeknet's (GKNT) nine (9%) percent ownership of CollabNet (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). Could an extraordinary gain be pending (in the event of a HP, IBM...acquisition of CollabNet)?
"...Of course, whether this will make money is anyone's guess. Black Duck has done pretty well, it seems, in their particular niche, but Ohloh.net was just bought by Geeknet in May 2009 for $2.6 million. In just 17 month's time, Geeknet turns right around and sells it. You can't help but wonder what's going on with Geeknet, particularly in light of its transferring the Linux.com property to the Linux Foundation in 2008. [more]
(NASDAQ:GKNT) "...On October 6, 2010, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Geeknet, Inc. (the "Company") approved a change in the bonus percentage allocation under the Company's cash incentive bonus program for Ms. Caroline Offutt, the President and General Manager of the Company's E-Commerce business, ThinkGeek, Inc. As previously disclosed in the Company’s Current Report Form 8-K Statement dated March 24, 2010, Ms. Offutt participates in the Company’s cash incentive bonus programs which provide for variable incentive awards. Prior to such change, the bonus percentage allocations for Ms. Offutt for the third and fourth fiscal quarters of 2010 were based forty percent (40%) on meeting Media revenue targets, forty percent (40%) on meeting E-Commerce revenue targets and twenty percent (20%) on meeting Company adjusted EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization) targets. Following the change, which is retroactive to the beginning of the third fiscal quarter of 2010, Ms. Offutt’s bonus percentage allocation shall be based eighty percent (80%) on meeting E-Commerce revenue targets and twenty percent (20%) on meeting E-Commerce EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization) targets. The other provisions of Ms. Offutt’s variable incentive awards remain unchanged and are summarized in the Company’s Current Report Form 8-K Statement dated March 24, 2010..." [more]

On Reverse-Splits and Geeknet's (GKNT) Pending 1:10 Reverse-Split [more]
Geek.net is not reporting [full disclosure] anything they normally would be, an issue consistently reported here e.g. TK-421 iPhone (3) launch this quarter, certain management departures (1,4). What appears and what does not appear on the Geek.net main site is dangerously outdated in areas ranging from full disclosure to competitive advantage (1,3,4,5). The current state of the Geek.net website is a disaster. [more]
