Starting in 2015, Laidlaw took steps to make a hostile takeover against Relmada. Relmada was successful in defending itself against Laidlaw but not without suffering significant damages to the value of its stock price in the process. Relmada estimates that it suffered $75 million in damages due to Laidlaw’s nefarious activity. It is going to court to ask a judge to award it $20 million to make up for its severe losses.
Laidlaw issued a statement in which it claimed that Relmada had denied a request by a potential investor for due diligence. Laidlaw also stated that Relmada had tried to attract institutional capital from investors but had not been able to do so. These claims made by Laidlaw are false and they were made for the purpose of damaging Relmada so that Laidlaw could perform a hostile takeover once the value of Relmada’s stock dropped significantly.
There is ample evidence to back up the claim that Laidlaw had been plotting against Relmada for a long time. The two companies once had a mutually respectful and beneficial relationship. Starting back in 2011, Relmada hired Laidlaw to be its financial advisor. Relmada is a clinical pharmaceutical company that is publicly traded and it requires financial advisement in order to navigate the stock and pharmaceutical markets. for 3 years Relmada was satisfied with Laidlaw, but in 2015 it became apparent that Laidlaw was acting with self-interest. The first evidence was when Laidlaw began to charge Relmada large fees for financial services that were of no value to Relmada. This may have been an attempt to gain more information that would be useful in a takeover attempt. Then Laidlaw placed a board member on Relmada’s board of directors who criminally withheld relevant information from Relmada.
Money Monster seems like a movie of our times. A charismatic stock guru slings out investing advice on TV only to incur the wrath of an investor who took him to be a financial wizard, and he takes the show hostage in order to uncover the truth behind the lies he so readily believed. It says a lot about current anxieties surrounding the finance and money in general that Money Monster has attracted so much attention. In many ways, the regulations surrounding investing are set up to give the most wealthy among us all the advantages and keep most of the 99% from being able to access any investment options at all. CEO of Forefront Capital Brad Reifler is one of the few financial advisors who’ve made strides to help the average American access investment options, and he’s pointed out the reasons why it’s such a rarity.
When it comes to Wall St., part of what keeps them appearing as though they understand markets is the fact that they’re wealthy. But part of what keeps them rich are the fees that are paid out to them regardless of the results they manage to produce for their clients.
This boost in one’s annual income allows them to reach the status of accredited investor, which allows them an air of authority, allowing them to invest in private equity and funds regardless of their level of knowledge in investing.
With these rules in place, too many investors will continue to make a profitable living from investing the money of others regardless of what they’re able to do for their clients, making the relationship between the two parties imbalanced and many from being able to invest at all. The longer that continues, the more distrust will grow concerning Wall St.
Bradley Reifler is the founder and CEO of Forefront Capital Advisors, offering financial services through its many subsidiaries to influential clients all over the world. This has allowed Forefront to develop an impressive portfolio that is maintained through personalizing business relationships.
With a structure that helps more people access investment plans, Bloomberg writes that Reifler has made it possible to mitigate risks at lower expense in the market. Be sure to also follow Brad on Twitter @Bradley_R.
Nutrimost was recently attacked in one of the worst ways possible for a weight loss program company: their promotional video was stolen by another weight loss company that claimed the results found from Nutrimost were actually from their product line. They stole the video from the Nutrimost company and they used it to their own benefit. The video included testimonials from customers as well as medical professionals who are fully supportive of the Nutrimost company. These people did not use the diet product from the website that stole the Nutrimost video, but the company made it look as if they had used this knock-off product to gain the same results that people had seen from using Nutrimost.
The Nutrimost diet program is one that is set up differently than many others. It combines several different components to ensure that people are able to use the most amount of weight possible and it promises users that they will be able to finally see the results that they desire from using a weight loss supplement. The company has worked to show people that they are able to get what they need from the program without having to go to extreme measures. They have always made sure that their clients are comfortable and that they actually see results from using the system.
As a company that wants to ensure the most in their customers’ satisfaction, Nutrimost has gone to great lengths to make sure that they provide a product that is able to satisfy their clients and help them meet their weight loss goals. They want everyone to know that they do not support the website on which the stolen video was used and that their products are of a much higher quality than the ones that are on that site.
Goettl Air Conditioning is a reputable company when it comes to installation and servicing of heating and air conditioning units. Recently, the company joined efforts with its sister company, The Sunny Plumber, to donate almost $14,000 of work to a 94-year old Las Vegan woman. The woman, Jean Jackson, was utilizing two small window air conditioners that were barely functioning well to cool her one bedroom house during the hot summer days of Las Vegas.
The original air conditioners for Jackson were too old and irreplaceable. Besides, her home, which she has lived for the past 33 years, could not incorporate a new system without a new rewiring. The cost of catering for the needs of a new system was prohibitive as she was living off her Social Security. The summer heat in Las Vegas can be very dangerous for older adults who have no properly working air conditioners. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in comparison to younger people, older people are rigid to adjustments to temperature changes.
Jean has had a heatstroke diagnosis in the past from a broken down air conditioner. Led by the current owner, Ken Goodrich, Goettl Air Conditioning and its sister company The Sunny Plumber, liaised with the Social Service Department of the Clark County to get a connection with Jean Jackson. Goodrich recognized the need for businesses to take their social responsibility seriously. With the help of Daikin-Goodman Global, Goettl Air Conditioning created a custom mini-split system to cool Jackson’s house in the summer and warm the house in the winters.
The cost of the whole work at Jackson’s home was almost $14,000. Jackson was very grateful to Ken Goodrich and his team from the two sister companies, referring to them as a godsend.
Gust and Adam Goettl were the original founders of the Goettl Air Conditioning in 1939.
The company established its grounds on Las Vegas Valley in 1968. The company has excellent service delivery in all its areas of practice. Goettl Air Conditioning offers new heating ventilation and air conditioning units to residential homes. Additionally, it also provides maintenance and servicing to air conditioning systems.

Securus Technologies has released a report outlining the findings and plans on releasing more reports over the next six months. Some of the main infractions involved artificially inflating charges, and that was done through a variety of means, including adding seconds to the duration of each call, charging calls at higher rates, and double billing.
As a result of these practices, it was found that state taxpayers were left footing the bill that included an excess of over one million dollars.
Danilo Diaz Granados, the co-founder of TOYS for BOYS, held a fun-filled and exceptional event in Miami, Florida. The July event was attended by guests who had been hand-picked by the affluent entrepreneur. It features activities like helicopter rides, fine cuisine, exclusive previews, a visit to the racetrack and a wonderful sunset boat ride. The guests were also treated to bottles of the exquisite Dom Perignon champagne towards the end of the day.
Since the inception of TOYS for BOYS back in 2013, Granados has held several successful hyper-sensory experiences that featured a selected guest list. Granados has reiterated on several occasions that he is keen to create exceptional experiences for his guests. He added that today, Miami’s men have an avenue where they can be treated to extravagant and unique products.
During the extravagant event, guests were treated to a nice breakfast at the sales center of the famed One Thousand Museum. They were then given an opportunity to see the much-awaited residential building yet to be opened at the Biscayne area.
After the preview, the guests got on a helicopter and flew to the Palm Beach Race Track. They each got a chance to drive around the track before taking another helicopter ride back. They were greeted with champagne, had lunch at River Yacht Club and ended the day with a sunset boat ride.
The day was sponsored by two of TOYS for BOYS sponsors namely Technomar and Van Dutch. In fact, the boats used for the sunset boat ride were their newest boats. Other sponsors of the day included One Thousand Museum, Gryphon Racing and Air Commander Aerospace.
Danilo Diaz Granados is an alumni of Babson College based in Wellesley, Massachusetts. He graduated with an Economics and Entrepreneurship degree before moving to Miami, Florida. In the city, he realized that there was a market niche in the Latino community for luxury items.
He then decided to launch a luxury boutique to cater to the market niche. This led to the creation of TOYS for BOYS. Danilo has worked hard to grow the boutique into a premier luxury business in Miami and his efforts have paid off. Today, he also manages another firm called Movilway. He is active on social media pages including Instagram and Twitter.
As a business owner I know firsthand how important online reputation repair services is. Back in the day online reputation involved pacifying customers via phone but today things have changed. We live in a world where everything is accessible through blogs and through my personal favorite, social media. On social media it is very hard to manage the opinions on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and even Snap Chat. Reviewers can go online and say they hate you just because they love your competitor more. Or they could say they hate your company just because they hate one of your competitors. After all when is the last time you have been able to filter an opinionated teenager or even adult?
As you scroll through the internet you have no other choice but to see that there are many websites out there that have negative reviews. Where there are negative review there also positive ones but one must actively engage with their customers to find an equal balance with both. Managing your brand has so many pros and cons and if you’re not careful could impact your bottom line. In the same token you must also be mindful that having positive reviews can have a global impact. It just depends on what’s out there.
Consider Jet Blue Airways they love to focus on providing convenience for the customer and making sure they always have a positive environment and attitude. While building this brand reputation has taken time it has stuck and so when customers want convenience with their air travel they know to go to JetBlue. While this is great it is also a hindrance. If a customer has complaints and goes online to review JetBlue in a negative manner then it could be hard for a company like Jet Blue to bounce back simply because they’ve been known for their positivity.
A good reputation is hard to work towards but it is easy to lose and so while online reputation is important it must be understood that it takes time and the time can’t be rushed.
