In total 24 million shares sold to investors at an average price of roughly 20 cents each, resulting in 4,8 million Euros flowing into the company. Today total equity (book value) is only 4 million...

Shareholders are the only thing keeping this company from going bankrupt.

Not a stock for the Graham Defensive Investor.
