ICOA CFO Erwin Vahlsing, Jr. speaks to the WSJ: (via Peter Kafka)

“I have no idea where this press release came from, what basis it’s on, and we do not want any part of it,” Mr. Vahlsing said, adding that ICOA doesn’t use PRWeb to put out press releases.

He joked that “I wish I was in conversation with Google, believe me, and I’d take much less than $400 million.”
