...and then just as quickly, he reported to the crowd that they still wouldn't lower any prices, nor split off any stock & continue to follow the antiquated 80s business model of screwing the loyal consumer base even harder in the future.

However in the meantime, for his grand report, he feels his reward will be to take the resounding accumulation of funds tendered to the corporation, add them to the Scrooge McDuck money bin they have located at the Apple headquarters & then he will get to take his turn at swimming in the bank vault.
