Quoted from dts:
This sounds like a stretch. Who would make a financial decision to ship $1.75M in games for $140,000, before even making a profit?! Sounds like a terrible investment! I seriously doubt anyone that is rich enough to do so would be rich in the first place with business decisions like that! Anyhow, Barry didn’t want to sell his company. It’s his baby and now completely falls on him. I hope he is successful, and if that devalues TBLs currently out there, that’s not a bad thing. I’d love to see another successful pinball company.
I can't imagine anyone would want to buy a company with very little IP and legal issues. I agree it makes no sense that anyone would offer to buy DP and then make the EAs whole in this way. Also, is the TBL licensing even transferrable? I've been thinking for a long time that DP would be much better off to partner with American or CGC to have them manufacture. To me that's the only thing that makes TBL viable.
After all that's happened with the EAs, I can't imagine there will be many people willing to give DP/Cointaker much of a deposit.
