“Re: Strategy of BDR?

At BT we are in the process of grooming the next generation of management. The last CC was reasonably benign as the numbers were in line with expectations.  I chose to allow Ms. Nikoo to represent me on this particular call. I think she performed wonderfully. Did you have any questions she could not answer?  re my ownership....Come on girls, I am a buyer, and still a buyer, but the SEC window must be open to buy.

Bob Palle

Sentiment : Strong Buy”
