For some reason in my browser it comes up headed "Newmark Ventures"; odd.
I have read a lot of SEC filings, written a few and wish I had seen more. This one baffles me.
I am reminded of the passage in "The Smartest Guys in the Room" where James Chanos is sniffing out the Enron fraud; here, let me fetch the book so I get this right.
"They were chewing up capital" says Chanos. He was struck by a three-paragraph disclosure in Enron's third quarter 2000 filing about its dealings with a related party. No matter how many times he read it, he still couldn't understand what it said. He showed it to derivatives specialists, corporate lawyers, and other experts; they couldn't figure it out either. Chanos thought: "They must be trying to hide something".
This filing? Beats the heck out of me.
My wish that I'd seen more Q's, K's, F's and all the other SEC forms is pretty sad compared to:
