Despite this, others say Steve Papermaster is a fraudster?

Others still say effectively that Steve Papermaster is in effect:

incompetent and had "squandered assets".  

Specifically, Papermaster and 5 other executives had, according to U.S. Bankruptcy Trustee Marsha Milligan (participated in):


… spending sprees that bankrupted one of the most well-financed and well-known high-tech startups in Austin.

… breach of fiduciary duty, gross negligence and waste after they”irrationally squandered Agillion’s assets” …

… burned through more than $60 million in less than three years.

…. At its zenith, the company employed about 125 people ….

… “Their revenue was so inconsequential that management never recorded a single dollar in revenue in their internal bookkeeping” …

Despite the poor performance, “…. management (i.e. Papermaster) increased their wasteful spending” ….

Despite earning only a “few hundred dollars…. ” …. opened an office in Australia, which closed six months later.

… entered into a $13 million, 10-year lease (which was) “lavish and unnecessary.”

Tripled the size of its workforce only to lay off many within months.
