By John Honovich, Published Jun 04, 2015, 12:00am EDT (Info+)

Wow. The shots at Avigilon continue to intensify.

Canada's financial TV network usually cheerleads for Canadian companies like Avigilon. But not right now.

In this note, we review the charges made and what they mean to Avigilon.

"crazy probably not the right term... a little bit unpredictable and doesn’t like to listen to other people too much."

I love how after he said "crazy" he realized he probably shouldn't have said it... too late...

Wow, that's a good one.

The best part about it is it appears to be a genuine off-the-cuff answer to a real caller, with minimal if any prep. on the question.

You can tell by the fact that the Analyst would have used A.F.'s name right away, but perhaps wasnt 100% confident doing so. Also shows when he stumbles around a tad, describing Avigilon's business as "cameras, camera software for industrial uses".

It's another confirmation that the Bulls of Bay Street no longer automatically bless all done in the name of the Fernández, the Schmode, and the Healthy CFO.

Jawad,

I had not heard that. In North America, Avigilon's pricing is fairly similar to Axis, Bosch, Sony, etc.

I had first hand experience with this attitude on one of my earlier projects. The ethics and professiolism of company come ito play just as much as the quality and performance of their products, when making selections for a design/RFP.

It's too bad, beacuse thier local sales rep is a great guy and very knowledgable.
