What is the Difference Between the $45M ATM Hack and the GKNT Board of Directors?
What is the difference between the $45M ATM hack and the GKNT Board of Directors?
A: The Banks are profitable. GKNT Directors are hacking their own shareholders while sustaining multi-year losses and shareholder valuie destruction.
GKNT reported [another] loss May 8th for Q1 ending March 31st "...Net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $2.3 million or $0.35 per diluted share compared to a net loss of $2.1 million or $0.33 per diluted share for the same period a year ago..." The day before GKNT reported continuing losses the shareholder hostile nine-person Board of Directors hacked the GKNT Insiders' ATM [again] under the guise of FORM 4 dispositions of 0$ share options.
As we stated in comment #4 here
"...and finally we must poignantly return to that pre-Langone Feb 14 2008 (comment #12 and here) letter from a Hedge Fund demanding the Board unlock obvious shareholder value. The stock closed at $1.78 (pre-1:10 split) or $17.80 at the close of the day preceding the demand letter to the GKNT (fka LNUX) Board of Directors.
GKNT shares closed at $13.99 today, April 12, 2013, > 5 years or appx 62 months since said demand letter where non-insider shareholders have sustained 21.4% in shareholder value destruction under Langone's reign while additionally establishing a Board comprised of (and with all due respect) ten of his (aging/irrelevant to the business of Geeknet) friends each of whom are effectively provided a personal ATM machine and $50k+ annual pension in the form of options and in some cases millions due to wreckless hirings, Langone has taken the concept and noun Grasso (comment #7) to the next level with Geeknet (GKNT). And to the point that the meticulous coverage provided on this blog over all these years (as cited in all above references and incorporated comments in main blog above) should simply be the basis for a Harvard Business School Case Study [and] should trigger and be the basis for sweeping Federal Securities Legislation to prevent this alleged criminal gross negligence and insider ATM machine from being replicated. Unfortunately it appears to be a rampant practice to varying degrees as has also been documented viz-a-viz the Pervasive Software debacle (blog, all references, comments).
These alleged pervasive fraudulent behavior(s) and practices must simply stop NOW..."
