Upon a cursory review of the IPDN website, I did not locate any diversity connections for those who identify as black, but are of European ancestry? Also, the website does not appear to cater to fifty year old adult males who identify as young ladies? Also, no mention in the IPDN website of resources for 'white privilege' individuals who live in trailer parks or under bridges who are looking for network connections?

I'm not spending much time here cribbing, but stopped in on SmartAce and my curiosity was sparked. Normally I've stopped messing with ultra small cap, market cap sub $50M, (this one is less than $11M).

In this case it was hard to understand how a company this small could have 163 employees with such a low market cap. The answer was that they can't. They are bleeding, and bleeding is increasing QoQ for the last year. They are talking the talk on how S&G is too far out of line with revenue, but are still expanding. (Into China)....which is a bigger puzzle since I don't see how they market their product there.
Talking the talk, possible revenue increase early next year from China....I suspect not.
About 2M in cash and lost that much last quarter while stockholder equity dropped hard from losses and write downs.

Target maybe sub $2.?

Does anyone else find it HILARIOUS that a "diversity" company has problems with labor relations and is being sued multiple times for violating employee's rights? This is almost too funny to be true. I find it hard to believe this is a legitimate company after reading their recent 10-Q.

The Company has previously disclosed that it and its wholly-owned subsidiary, NAPW, Inc.,are parties to litigation captioned Gauri Ramnath,et al. v. Professional Diversity Network, Inc.,et al., No. BC604153 (Los Angeles Superior Ct.),a putative class action filed in January 2016 alleging violations of various California Labor Code (wage & hour) sections. During the first quarter of 2016, the Company executed a settlement agreement, subject to later Court approval, in which the Company agreed in principle to pay $500,000 fora global settlement of the class action. During the first quarter of 2016, the Company also recorded a litigation settlement expense in the amount of $500,000. On November 28, 2016, the Court approved the proposed settlement. In December of 2016 the Company paid the settlement amount in the Court’s fund and the third-party administrator began distributing payments to class members. On August 2, 2017, the Court notified the parties that the case is “reported as complete without the need for a furtherstatus conference”. The Company expects a formal dismissal order in the near future.

The Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, NAPW, Inc., are parties to a proceeding captioned In re Professional Diversity Network, Cases 31-CA-159810 and 31-CA- 162904 (“NLRB”), filed with the National Labor Relations Board in June 2015 and alleging violations of the National Labor Relations Act against the Company and its whollyowned subsidiary, NAPW, Inc., where employee was allegedly terminated forasserting “union organizing” rights. While the Company disputes that any rights were impacted, the NLRB has issued its preliminary order requiring the Company to take certain remedial actions in the form of posting notices and revising certain policies. The NLRB’s order was recently affirmed by the U.S. Court ofAppeals for the Ninth Circuit and the Company is working with the NLRB to carry out the effects of its order. The NLRB is expected to levy a make-whole remedy to the subject employee. The Company does not expect the resolution of this matter to have a material negative impact on its financial condition.

The Company is a party to a proceeding captioned Paul Sutcliffe v. Professional Diversity Network, Inc., No. 533-2016-00033 (EEOC), filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) in April 2016 and alleging violations of Title VIIand theAge Discrimination in Employment Act, where employee was allegedly terminated due to his race (Caucasian) and his age (over 40). The EEOC has not yet notified the Company that it has issued a right-to-sue letter, and the complainant has not yet filed a lawsuit.

The Company is a party to a proceeding captioned Wei Aniton v. Professional Diversity Network, Inc., No. 440-2017-04717 (EEOC), filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) on July 6, 2017 and alleging violations of Title VII and the Equal Pay Act of 1963, where employee alleges she was discriminated by the Company due to her race and hersexand was paid less than similarly situated white males. The Company is in the process of providing a response to the EEOC."

Revenues are falling, not been profitable in the past five years, burning around $4MM in cash per quarter (roughly speaking). Another easy down thumb.
