This excerpt taken from the DDIC DEF 14A filed Apr 13, 2006.
The Company emerged from reorganization proceedings under Chapter 11 bankruptcy on December 12, 2003. Pursuant to the Joint Plan of Reorganization approved by the Bankruptcy Court, the previous Common Stock was cancelled and new Common Stock became available for issuance. On December 15, 2003, the shares of our Common Stock that were issued under our plan of reorganization began trading on the OTC Bulletin Board under the symbol DDIO. On March 5, 2004, our Common Stock commenced trading on the Nasdaq National Market under the symbol DDIC. On February 3, 2006, we effected a one-for-seven reverse stock split. Shares of the Common Stock traded on the Nasdaq National Market on a post-split basis from February 6, 2006 to March 3, 2006, under the temporary trading symbol DDICD. The Common Stock resumed trading under the trading symbol DDIC on March 6, 2006.
Because the shares of Common Stock outstanding prior to December 12, 2003 (the effective date of the Joint Plan of Reorganization), were cancelled as part of the bankruptcy and its performance is not comparable to that of the new Common Stock of the reorganized Company. The following graph compares the cumulative total stockholder return on the Common Stock since December 12, 2003 with the cumulative total return of (a) the Nasdaq Composite Index and (b) an index of two peer companies selected by the Company. The peer group is comprised of the following companies: Merix Corp. and TTM Technologies Inc. This peer group index will be subject to occasional change as the Company or its competitors change their focus, merge or are acquired, undergo significant changes, or as new competitors emerge. The comparison assumes $100 was invested on December 12, 2003, in DDi Corp. stock and in each of the indices shown and assumes that all dividends were reinvested.
The comparisons in this table are required by the SEC and, therefore, are not intended to forecast or be indicative of possible future performance of the Common Stock.
