Other matters to examine include which company has the most capital and the most efficient platform.
Securus Technologies contends that GTL has made up facts regarding which of the two companies is ahead of the game in these various areas. Securus Technologies maintains that there really is no competition and Securus Technologies is leading the way in all of the areas at issue.
Richard A. Smith, the Chief Executive Officer os Securus Technologies, personally called for the involvement of an independent evaluation of the metrics at issue between the two companies. The CEO maintains that Securus Technologies has invested heavily in upgrading its operations. Because of this investment, Securus Technologies maintains that fairness dictates that GTL not provide false information on the state of the two enterprises.
