SSPC/SSPCE went to the pinks too. BAAT now has no liquid assets except the cash Wason can infuse from that little scam.

Company Press Release

BAT International CEO Discusses Company Strategy And Projects On Raging
Bull Web Site Forum

CHULA VISTA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 11, 1999--BAT International
(OTCBB:BAAT - news) announced today that it is taking the unusual step
of participating in a popular Internet forum on the World Wide Web. The
forum can be found at

According to BAT International, a lot of misinformation was being
circulated on the Raging Bull Web site for many months. The company felt
it was important to set the record straight and correct the information
posted because the bashers were extreme.

Many companies such as Nike have been hit by bashers on the Internet
chat boards. Some have chosen to pursue litigation against people
posting. BAT is more interested in correcting the information on the Web
site and will, as an exception to its company policy, post messages at
this site for a limited time period.

BAT International's Chief Executive Officer, Joe LaStella, has already
begun posting messages on the BAAT forum on Raging Bull. Persons that
are interested in participating on the forum are asked to first review
the messages already posted by LaStella on the board. These include
message numbers 3894, 3909, 3942, 3949, 3995, 3996, 4011, 4026, 4046,
4054, 4055, 4058, 4062, 4063 and 4066. LaStella's postings are a mixture
of answers to specific questions about BAT International as well as
reissuing of some information that the company thinks is important for
the public to be fully aware of.

''The Internet represents a fantastic opportunity for a company like
ours to interact with stockholders and other interested parties as never
before,'' commented LaStella. The company plans to revamp some of its
existing Web sites in the near future, as stated in one of LaStella's
postings on Raging Bull, in order to keep stockholders up to date about
company news and events. ''Actively participating in Internet forums on
the Web is very time consuming because all statements must adhere to
specific corporate guidelines,'' LaStella remarked.

BAT International is a publicly traded over-the-counter company. Stock
quotes for BAT International can be obtained from, and BAT International is organized as a
holding company with major ownership in subsidiary companies that are
commercializing advanced automotive and energy technology products
developed by BAT International. Technologies developed over the last

I am sorry to say this is my last posting. Some of us have tried to
organize this board. Miraclewon and several other have done a marvelous job to transform this board into an more structured vehicle for serious communication.
However, new bashers and irresponsible posters are coming onto the board at an increasing rate. In my last posting, I spoke about a person impersonating Bill Wason who then shifted like a chameleon to
impersonate other BAT employees. Now we have a rather intellectual
person impersonating me on the board as "LaStella", whereas I post as
The problem is that many newcomers don't know what's going on, and there isn't a viable communication infrastructure to shore up and protect the communication process that is not working. If you couple these impersonation antics with the amount of ridiculous posting from bashers and others on this board, the resulting situation is a huge waste of time and can confuse newcomers.
My email is full of suggestions from BAAT's very loyal stockholders and they are pleading with me to get off of this message board. They are asking me to do this because it is obvious that only a very few who are posting on this board really want to learn. They don't use this forum as a place to expand their knowledge. This majority of posters only come here to vent anxiety that they are carrying around from living on boards rather than living life.
I have written some 25 full pages of information on the company during
the past 3-1/2 weeks. Very few people appreciate this and even less seem to either understand them or want to understand them. I really do have a very wonderful company to run called BAT International and I have already wasted to much time on trying to develop a community of board members that want to have lots of honest, open dialog.
So, here are my last postings! This time around I am not going to be so gentlemanly.....

The rest is on RB. He goes on to insult most of the other posters on the board. He only answered 3 1/2 questions. Most of his postings contain whining about his health or reposting his own press releases.

Joe LaStella here are some more...
Questions that I was keeping track of for you to Answer.
Where is the money from the sell of the Jazz Electrobikes?
What ever happened to the Eastern European diesel engine project for
Dolphin Pulse charging? Were any ever completed and what were the
results? Did anyone buy any, if so how much revenue was generated?
Would the price be higher if you had brought in those millions of
dollars of Income from the licensing of Dolphin Technology?
Do you think that the Dolphin test runs and BAAT Press Releases had
something to do with the stock run up? Could it also be the lack of
INCOME and contracts that you talked about contributed to the stock to
Would the price be much higher, even with the bashing, had you filed
Audited Financials ON TIME and not gone to the pink sheets?
What is the name, phone number, and contact person to verify that the
"Electrobikes are in 10 stores of a chain that has a total of 150
stores."? This should be an easy question to answer, anyone could verify the information and find out how many bikes are being sold monthly.
When did Bill Wason go from an employee to a "volunteer….. working on
only a few projects, and is not fully up on my activities."? How many
"volunteers are "working" for BAAT? And why would they do that? Are they paid, if so how? Did Bill Wason become independently wealthy when he sold his BAAT stock?
Joe, aren't you the least bit responsible for the current share price
and value of this company?
What ever happened to the Dolphin Technology? Does it work? If it does, why don't you do tests with a certified EPA lab and prove that it does work once and for all and then start marketing it?
How many vehicles have been Dolphin Pulse charged? What have been the
Please give us contact names and phone numbers of individuals at the
Companies that have evaluated Dolpin Technologies?
How many vehicles have been produced and sold from Otay Mexico?
The following question was partially asked in question # 3 1/2. This is the one that you decided NOT to answer and then bailed out on us...
Could it be that you really wanted people to think you were NOT taking
ANY money out of BAAT? You stated several times that you were not taking a "Salary" But anyone with any business background KNOWS that there are a NUMBER of different ways to take money out of a Corporation and a "Salary" is only ONE way, isn't it?
How do you compensate those individuals (including volunteers)
contracted outside of BAT for PR and investor relations? With stock or
cash, if stock is or was it restricted? How are you compensated? You
mentioned that you do not receive a Salary. Is your Salary accruing? Do you receive stock and or options from BAAT or any of its Subsidiaries, if so, how much have you received and how much have you sold to keep BAAT going? How much money does it take to get and keep BAAT on the OTC/BB? What is the annual cost to BAAT for Accounting and filing fees as a publicly traded company?
Who funded the start up of SSPC and why didn't they just put the money
into BAT?
What ever happened to the order for 2000 small commercial Power
Generators that were suppose to be built for the Y2K Superstore? What is your relationship with the Y2K store?
Have you paid all of your unpaid debts for your Utah operation?
Regarding financials you once said "With operations in Mexico and India, we have piles of records that don't necessarily conform to U.S.
standards," La Stella explains. "It's difficult to put them all
together." Why NOT hire someone who knows how to put it together and
conform to US CPA standards of accounting?
Are you still having a dispute with your accountant?
"He keeps writing in our financial statements that it is unclear whether we are a going concern," La Stella says, referring to boilerplate language that auditing firms often use for poorly capitalized companies.
"I told him that if he does that again, he's fired." Did you fire him?
I was going to rephrase some of the following qestions in a more civil
manner out of respect for Joe, but now that he has put all of us on
Ignore I don't want to waste my valuable time. This is only a partial
list but the questions are VALID.

Continued on RB. Here Miraclewon reposts many more questions left unanswered.

The cycle continues.........

Thanks Don! Joe may actually be turning a new leaf. He said in that post, "the resulting situation is a huge waste of time".

Well evidently every thing he tries turns into a big waste of time, or is it just a big waste of words? Now perhaps he will tell people which other projects failed. Though I seriously doubt that.

Joe just keeps getting funnier. I guess when the "corporate raiders" realized all they could get from BAT was the $50,000 worth of Batlube Bill has in his garage they gave up.

Shucks, who wants to grease a bat anyway? The name "Bat" never had a chance without excessive amounts of educational advertising.

How's that Batmobile factory doing down in Mexico?

BAT's Subsidiary Electrobike Featured on "The Donny & Marie Show"

Chula Vista, Calif.: BAT International's (BAAT:OTC) (
subsidiary, Electrobike ( received confirmation
today that the Year 2000 Electrobike will be prominently featured
as part of a holiday gift giving segment on "The Donny & Marie Show".
"The Donny & Marie Show" is an hour long daytime variety featuring
the famous duet Donny and Marie Osmond as hosts. The show is aired
nationally on the Fox Television Network and reaches approximately
3-4 million viewers. The show will air on Thursday, December 9.
The scheduled air-time in Los Angeles, California is 1:00 p.m.
Interested viewers should check local listings for the viewing
time in their local area.

What led to the opportunity to have an Electrobike featured on
the show was Marie Osmond having received an Electrobike as a
recent birthday gift. Soon after Marie received her Electrobike,
Donny Osmond obtained one as well. A telephone call to company
management from a producer of "The Donny & Marie Show" confirmed
that the initial taping of the show included a segment where
Donny demonstrated the bike on stage while Marie and two band
members, who also own Electrobikes, were expressing how much fun
and enjoyment they got from riding their Electrobikes.

As we enter into the holiday season, Electrobike is recording
brisk sales. The national airing of "The Donny and Marie Show"
on December 9th is expected to further augment sales activity
during the Holiday Season. Anyone interested in viewing
Electrobike's current model offerings can visit our web site at Those wanting to see Electrobike in a retail
store can visit select Roots locations in the U.S. or Canada.
To obtain information about the nearest location, please contact
Electrobike at (323) 227-6611.

The Electrobike airing on The Donny & Marie Show" is one aspect
of a strategic product placement program that Electrobike has
initiated to gain national and international prominence as an
electric bicycle company. The proximity of Electrobike to major
television and film studios in Hollywood and various contacts
Electrobike has in the entertainment industry has resulted in a
comprehensive product placement program.

Electrobike is positioning itself as a market leader through
innovative products, market driven strategies, public relations
activities and retail alliances. This has been coupled with a
manufacturing partner, Suzhou Machinery Holding Group, Ltd., who
can provide the needed production capacity to meet retail demands.
Electrobike will continue to develop advanced electric bicycle
technology while forging new retail marketing alliances.

BAT International is organized as a holding company with major
ownership positions in a set of subsidiary companies now
commercializing advanced automotive and energy technology products

Great--if BAAT sells 15,000 Electrobikes, it will net .00675 a share, according to my calculations. Give it a PE of 10 (generous for the Pink Sheets), and you have a 6.75&#162 stock. It's there already, so no boost from this news is warranted.

But only if BAAT is willing to tell the world the truth. Continue to hold back, and there is nothing to give this stock any value.
