Those incessant games against Football Championship Subdivision opponents and overmatched teams are mostly in the past.

USA Technologies Inc. Message Board

Heres the little secret you lemmings may not know Foxy does not own USAT common stock, he owns USATP, the preferred shares! He and several insiders were in early and BIG with the preferred shares. Ten+ years ago, USAT issued 442,968 shares of preferred stock which by definition take precedent over common and accrue a dividend of $1.50 per year, payable if or when the company ever makes a profit (in hindsight, just one more really bad business decision by this team). The accrued dividend as of August 1, 2013 is $11,928,550 or $26.93 per share. So if and when they ever make a steady profit, the first $12M in profit goes to preferred shares, not reinvestment in the business or common shareholders. If the company were to go bankrupt, the preferred share holders would basically own the assets for $7.9M (current USATP share price $18 x 442,968 shares). Should the company be acquired, the preferred dividend would become immediately payable before common shares! The overhang from the USATP arrangement is one of the major reasons the market is not giving more value to the USAT common shares. Credit where credit is due, Foxy has taken a page from managements playbook, how to make a fortune at the expense of common shareholders. So anyway this turns out, Foxy is in the money and you lemmings are just SOL. Run a 5 year or longer chart comparison of USAT to USATP and you will see why Foxy is smiling and why he wants YOU to buy USAT common! PS.
