2.5m isnt that bad... but its going to take another 5M to get it back to a reputable company
Maybe all it would need is a name chage with the new owner. Honestly, have you been to the new facility? It's pretty damn impressive to say the least.

They're still bad lik that? My friend here in NJ got "sponsored" by them recently and he got a great deal on pricing. It's that sponsorship you apply for on their site. Oh well.. never ordered anything from them thanks to nasioc though.

Hi Ryan K. Glad to see you posting on the forums. Vivid is not for sale. Profits are higher then ever and everyone is doing well. Whats real shady is that you used to work for Vivid up until recently and now work for Kingpin and are making posts like this and posts bumping Kingpins threads. Now thats shady.

Ryan. Dont be Shady man. There is no reason for you to try to Hurt Vivids Rep. They where good to you for a long time man. You know alot of people here. Thats shady stuff.

For those that dont know Ryan Ketcherside was the wholesale guy at Vivid for years. He left and now works for Kingpin. If you click on projectpsi and hit reset posts you can see him acting as a Kingpin customer to drum up bussiness. Thats shady.

Posting his last name without his permission is a little shady.

I agree in that bumping up your company's FS post is not a big deal but PRETENDING to be a customer genuinely interested in something?? Come on... admit to that.

You might want to get your facts right next time Clark.

You may not like it but that is the way it goes, there is nothing wrong or unethical about it. Really it is only the business of the owner, the interested parties and whom ever is facilitating the sale (usually lawyers and a firm specializing in these transactions) To often employees act like then are entitled to know everything that is going on. The fact is they are not. Go start your own business, I am sure many of you feeling will change. I would go into it further but I have a feeling it would be wasted breath.

BTW 200k in inventory is not a lot, especially considering what the average unit cost is for the items they sell. Not saying they should be caring more, cash flow is king, but just because they have 200k in invetory does not mean they have the right stuff or stock what you are looking for.
