“We’ve already announced that we are looking at different options of doing a reverse (stock split) and all these different things to recapitalize, restructure the company,” he stated. “But there’s no shortage of institutions willing to work with us to give us money, even as we’re going through this right now, losing money. The institutions definitely understand the model. They understand where we’re going. And I think that we’ve gotten there in record time.”
Lowe stated the corporate plans to ruin even through the finish of the 12 months, which is when it hopes to achieve five million subscribers.
He stated one thing identical in an interview with BuzzFeed News this week, explaining the corporate will most probably ruin even through the finish of 2018.
