  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "On April 11, Ability announced the resignation of all five of its independent board members, and management provided commentary on the challenges that this company is facing. From our point of view, a potentially bright future remains for the company’s flagship Ultimate Interceptor (ULIN) technology, but the ongoing SEC investigation and the appearance of internal challenges are likely to weigh on the stock and prevent significant upside from current levels. Additionally, the company appeared to imply a significant cash burn during 4Q16 that we had not expected, which is something to focus on in future quarters (although the controlling shareholders have noted that they will evaluate whether to contribute capital). All things considered, we believe it is pertinent to step back to the sidelines; while more ULIN wins would likely be positive for the stock, we now believe that there are somewhat significant risk factors that should keep the shares at current levels."
