 "DJ's idea of success is getting a bonus from the suckers, without needing to bring the company to any sort of profitability, even kinda-sorta adjusted adjusted without costs and with not-yet-booked earnings profitability."
In 2009, when I first "invested" in CPST, DJ's constant mantra was, "profitability in a quarter or two". In 2012, when I got out of CPST DJ's constant mantra was still, "profitability in a quarter or two". After that it changed to, "break-even in another quarter". Then it became, "EBITDA break-even in another quarter". Now it is "Adjusted EBITDA break-even next fiscal year."

The more things change, the more they stay the same.”.....French novelist Alphonse Karr

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”.....George Santayana
That being said---they have a great product, but they just don't know how to make money with what they have---instead of chasing after the next big-thing/hot-shit idea.
