I'm conscious of the fact that there are some companies ready and 
waiting to give us the money and join the board *now*, and those leads 
might go cold if we delay much longer.

So while I agree that we don't want to arbitrarily add random companies, 
I think there is a compromise where we recruit those companies that are 
already interested while they're still interested and then fill in the 
remaining seats all at the same time as you say.

That is of course unless anyone feels that the current potentials should 
be *rejected*. I don't think there's anything particularly objectionable 
about them. Do you?
