Retire to me, sounds like they paid of the $3.5M, not cheated someone out of it.

Of course, seeing it is a publicly traded company, those who bought their stock at much higher price at IPO, on speculation, and thats what it really is, speculation, are the ones who took the bath.

I don't really see anyone getting cheated, at least in the conventional way.

We all should be so lucky to get to play in that game.

Its always funny to see the spin. "Retire" the polite way of saying, "My business model failed, we overspent, and we screwed our creditors out of their promised ROI/money."
