SVM management is covering its own butt. It doesn't give a rats **** about common share holders. What they do care about is making sure they do everything possible to avoid jail time. (if they did in fact cook the books) So all this activity by management could simply be part of an orchestrated effort on the part of their legal team to give a potential jury the appearance of innocence. Time will tell. However there is no doubt that the shorts were in dire straits and these allegations saved them from a massive short squeeze. So it does give the appearance of a preplanned assault on SVM. But don't confuse an act of self preservation with a conscience!
