ACTIVITY PERIOD - JUNE 2014 TO DECEMBER 2015. Damage Amount Requested: $170,980.00 Settlement Amount: $62,500.00 Broker Comment: IT IS A MATHEMATICAL CERTAINTY THAT ON ANY GIVEN DAY, MONTH OR YEAR HALF OF THE COMPANY'S STOCKS OFFERED FOR SALE WILL UNDERPERFORM THE OTHER HALF. LOSING MONEY IN THE STOCK MARKET IS A PART OF INVESTING FOR PROFITS. IT HAS NEVER BEEN THE CASE THAT INVESTMENT ADVISORS AND BROKERS SHARE IN THE PROFITS OF THE INVESTORS AND INVESTORS SHOULD NOT EXPECT THOSE SAME INVESTMENT ADVISORS AND BROKERS TO UNDERWRITE THEIR LOSSES. IT IS AN UNFORTUNATE REALITY THAT THE COST OF DEFENDING AGAINST A FRIVOLOUS CLAIM IS SIGNIFICANTLY LARGER THAN SETTLING WITH A DISAPPOINTED INVESTOR. IN THAT WAY, SUCH AS SETTLEMENT IS MERELY A WAY OF PAYING EXTORTION TO AVOID COSTLY LITIGATION AND TIME CONSUMING.
