Global had its origins in Canada, in the Vancouver area where they still maintain some R&D staff and the official headquarters. But yes, you are right, the major operations and real headquarters are in McKinney, Texas, good for that patriotic American flavor. With the AMEX listing and growth in US sales (where most sales have been in recent years), Global could well change its incorporation site to the US. That would make good sense. With the Spectrum acquisition, Global also has operations in the Seattle area, good for high-tech proximity. Note that the AGM two years back was actually held in Texas, to the disappointment of us few Canadian shareholders who attend when it is held in Vancouver. If we get a lot of big American shareholders over the next year, I would not at all begrudge a Texas site for the next AGM. I expect that your pink-sheet speculation will prove to be a very prudent and profitable one. Sorry that you found it hard to buy; things should be much better next week, when I expect AMEX trading to begin, or not long after that. I agree that a double within a month of active trading on AMEX is not beyond reason.
