Prepare for Sonus Scrap
Legatum Capital, which claims to own 25 percent of Sonus's stock, this week fired off a very public missive, slamming the vendor for "years of poor operational performance" that has depressed the share price and resulted in "near five-year lows." (See Legatum Slams Sonus.)
The shares are currently worth $4.68. The five-year low came in early March this year, when the stock fell to $2.92.
About a year ago (early June 2007), though, the stock hit a four-year high, at $9.03.
As you would expect, Legatum's claims have not gone unanswered. Sonus chairman Hassan Ahmed has written, and distributed, a response ahead of today's meeting that tears into Legatum's claims. (See Sonus Responds to Legatum.)
Both documents are worth a read if you have an interest in Sonus.
The Sonus shareholders' meeting is being held in Westford, Mass., today, starting at 8:30 a.m. EST.
