Stealth Alarms forges ahead despite suspension
September 30, 2004
CALGARY, Alberta - Even though the company had its business license yanked for 45 days in July, Stealth Alarms President Brad Morrison is confident that the company will emerge from an appeal of that charge unscathed.
The company was suspended for not having an active direct sellerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s license, which allows a business to sell goods and services in a location other than its primary place of business. But Morrison is in the process of appealing the ruling - stating the company did have a direct sellerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s license for the company under the monitoring businessÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ name, Stargate.
Until a hearing is held, Stealth may continue to operate, and Morrison said everything is currently running as normal.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are conducting business as usual,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said.
That will change if the conviction is not overturned. If the appeal fails, Stealth must cease operations for 45 days - meaning it cannot sell, install, repair or monitor any security systems and the ruling could affect StealthÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 60,000 subscribers. But Morrison said he thinks the company will not have to serve the duration of the suspension.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We expect to be fully vindicated,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said.
Morrison said he expects the appeal hearing to occur at the end of September. No specific date was available at press time.
