  • Killion: "The board and I believe a new CEO and president who has a strong history specific to manufacturing and operational excellence will greatly benefit the company."
  • Killion's resignation comes as UniPixel contends with an SEC investigation, and faces heightened investor pressure to ramp production of its InTouch metal mesh sensors.

    Well that is not a good sign for a startup with a SEC investigation active.

    This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Not a good sign.

    Hmm... interesting.


    Jan 2015 $3 puts can be had for around $0.40. If it goes to zero, that's almost a 10-bagger. But didn't they have a secondary offering a while back? Need to dig into how much cash they've got.

    I wonder if he resign because the SEC investigation is pointing to him. Hope the company will pay for his legal expense. All the longs will be hating short now. Who will the longs blame now???

    Killion's resignation before the SEC investigation has been completed points to it being only the tip of the iceberg. The UniBoss mechanical embossing process obviously gives very poor yields & has failed to get off the ground. The evidence for that was made obvious when they had announce the move from 5 microns up to 6 microns & the world has moved on to way below that level. IMO there is lots more to come out of this & there may well be implications about how Kodak came out of bankruptcy & what their involvement is, if so don't expect there to be any sort of resolution any time soon.

    They had no idea how to produce even with six sigma man as longs proclaimed. They missed several step in their planning.
