This accurately depicts the bona fide assets that existed inside the corporation. So the value Even at this time as admitted by defendant’s was worth at least $400 million (See Oct report). COMPANY HAD RAISED $10MILLION RIGHT BEFORE ROSENBLATT BECAME CEO + HAD ALL THESE ASSETS. (INCL: 100% MYSPACE). REAL STORY = ROSENBLATT SUCKED AT MANAGING COMPANY & ASSETS
