Total Telcom will be the exclusive agent to market the remaining Fiber Inventory. The terms of the revenue sharing arrangement will pay Total Telcom 90% of the proceeds from the sale or lease of any of the unencumbered fibers. The Corporation currently has several parties who have expressed interest in purchasing fiber on the Network including one formal offer.

According to the latest balance sheet, their fiber network is on the books at over $8 million - that is going to be one big loss to book in the books.

This company definitely has a habit or "reinventing" itself. Long before the Total Telecom days, the company was called DC Corrosion and it did corrosion protection for pipelines, etc. They then bought/made a bunch of hydrovac trucks to try to emulate Badger Daylighting, a very successful ASE company that went on to big things (I made some nice $ on that one!). Hydrovac trucks are used to dig up burried utility lines safely etc. They then became Total Telecom where they seem to float from concept to concept - whatever is a hot topic for the day - fiber optics, etc. etc.
I have traded this company a few times over the past 8 years or so and made a bit of money, but they always seem to dissapoint in the end. Fortunately, I have been long gone from the stock before it hit its downturn cycle each time. I always keep an eye on it though.....
