I bought PLPC shares based on the good key metrics (value).
I have now become worried about the ownership structure. Seeing that a certain Barbara Ruhlman owns +30% of the stock without being the founder makes me feel very unconfortable. She seems to be the wife of the CEO. Is she related to Tom Peterson the founder, who now owns much less than this lady. In what way did she contribute to the huge value creation that her holding implies. I cannot believe that she helped build 30% of PLPCs value.
Looks very dangerous to me. Anyone knows more?
