I admit I didn't dig look at the financials to see what the IR expenses were, but going by halcro's copy/paste the entire investor relations which includes I would think, everything to do with promoting the company, that's still a very high cost, IMO.
I wouldn't add employee salaries to IR expenses, but again I didn't look at the financials. I was just going with the almost $84k per month that was posted.
I always hate to see high costs with a non-producer. Heck, even a producer needs to watch expenses, after all it's shareholder money they're playing with. JMO
