[UPDATE1] Google's (GOOG) Fiscal Year ended 12/31/09 and Announced results 1/21. Geeknet's Fiscal year ended 12/31/09. Geeknet remains silent. What is Geeknet Hiding/Running Away From?



January 23, 2010 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: GKNT.DL , AMZN , BBY


On January 12th Google (GOOG) issued a press release entitled "Google to Announce Fourth Quarter 2009 Financial Results". Google had appx 20,164 employees at the end of 2008 and reported Q4 revenues (2009) of $6.67B and annual revenues of $23.65B on 1/21.

Geeknet (LNUX) has 139 employees and annual revenues less than $62 million has not even announced their intent to announce (nor have they ever engaged the analyst nor investor community at all since Kauffman became CEO). Again, the most fundamental baseline investor relations strategy a publicly-held company simply [must] implement especially in high-tech, especially in silicon valley, especially in this economy...What is KauffmanManagement, the Board of Directors hiding/running away from? Twelve days after their fiscal year end, 20,000+ employees strong, > $20B Revenues, and IPO'd appx four years after LNUX's IPO and Geeknet fka SourceForge fka VA Linux still cannot get their act together.

Geeknet (LNUX), the Face of sustained shareholder value destruction.
