    Still too early to say they've turned the corner, until they achieve normalized operating profit, it still bleeding.

    AMAZING!!!

    For all the bluff and bluster about the fireign exchange rate being a huge headwind, it's over 15% decline in USD terms has resulted in less than a 3% boost EBITDA (Earnings Before I Tricked the Dumb Accountant)!

    Massive staff cuts and a wholesale exit from an expanding market.

    An awesome result in revenue reduction as well.

    Can see how the reporters were tricked into repoeting positively with the spin these guys put out and reporters not actually reading (or understanding) the full results.

    You're not fooling anyone (on here) Robinsons...

    had to laugh when National Radio were interviewing some Austrian guy about how the signals got back to earth - was it dial up or brandband? and as quick as a flash the guy said and its not fibre either - good old fashioned radio waves

    Some serious buying interest kicking into Rakon.

    Looks like 2 big buyers - one 200k order came in last minute to take out all the stock on offer from 36c to 36.5c, leaving the buyer of 75k at 36.5c unfilled.

    You probably right mate with your statement yesterday that some wise old heads are accumulating.

    Brent was talking on the radio his morning about an underlying profit in excess of $10m ....that's a good start for a turnaround eh
