More cash please


I went to quite an amusing presentation by a Taiwanese company yesterday. The Investor Relations representative's English was certainly better than my Mandarin but I felt sorry for him as he did his best to articulate his corporate line, ending every sentence with "Yeah" to try to add credibility to his words. It was the Q&A which really threw him. "Why did you have a GDR issue in June when you didn't need the money?" he was asked. "Well," he replied, "it's too early to say what demand will be in 2010 but, yeah, we may have a GDR issue in January." The share price fell today.
