Dr. Lawrence Roberts
Light Reading: What are your plans for equity events, or an IPO? How many
employees do you have?
Larry Roberts: Three hundred and twenty-three. We've done three private placements, we'll probably do one more, and then an IPO some time after that.
Light Reading: Have you shown anybody the product?
Roberts: We're working on the box with potential customers. We've not delivered equipment to anybody.
Light Reading: These days, service provider customers sometimes ask for equity from equipment vendors. Sometimes individuals at those companies even ask for equity. Have you experience any of that?
Roberts: We've seen enough of it that we're going to be very careful. That's come up. We're not going to do that.
