I can't go into to many details, but by April of 2005, Lysholm was over 3000 units back ordered with no schedule, no build plan, no recover plan, no future production goal and zero information. What transpired was incredibly bad business. It began in May of 2004 and got to a severely critical level in November of 2004, but problems were supposedly handled by Jan. When time came around, we received 10 sc's, 5, 7, etc. which was simply not enough. There wasn't even enough for warranty replacements, repairs, etc. We were forced into a very bad situation. Customers got very angry, both potential and current, we lost an incredible amount of sales, employee's, contracts, marketing and advertising chances, money for R&D, etc.

We filed a lawsuit in June of 2005 for breach of contract, failure to deliver and a few other things. They admitted that they screwed up during a meeting in June 2005 but still could not provide a schedule, plan or anything. Was there going to be 10, 500, 1000, didn't know and that was not acceptable. We were already in the red, how could you continue losing money if you had no idea about the future?

Some of the things that happenned reached an incredible low and very bad business. Since we were the company that got them started (we were their first customer and left another partnership to be with them) and the company that created the market, you think they would do everything they can to help. We did nothing wrong, just ordered and forecasted as previous.

Hope this adds a bit of insight into what really went down.

Thanks,
Dustin
