  1. Daar Communication. I recognize you for poor management and corporate governance, destruction of shareholders value, lack of corporate strategy. You have turned to a family business, despite been public. Your Chairman seems to have focus issues. He often swings between PDP and the Company. You are a pity. You have lost investors confidence. You are a cast-away; can never raise capital by Rights issue. To simply put, you are dead.
