That's a million bucks more than his crappy little company is worth.
Given the pay at the company is so rotten, nobody working there will care who owns the company.

But, they sell them at Bed, Bath & Beyond and they aren't $50.

51. I Have An Expensive One

Paid $90 for it. But that was 15 or 16 years ago. It's a high quality memory foam and after all that time, it's still like the day I bought it.
I know ninety bucks is a lot, but if I get 25 years out of it, I think it's ok.

36. According To Moody's...

...the company value is $150 million with $141 million in revenues. Net income before taxes was around $9 million.
BTW, the estimated debt to equity is 4.8. So, a lot of revenue is consumed by interest payments. Probably $4.5-5 million a year.
They also have 1,500 employees. For a $141,000,000 revenue company. That's $94k per employee in revenues. The company from which I retired had revenue per employee of nearly $1.65 million.
Last point: If that company actually has total compensation cost of 30% of revenues (0.7% above the median for manufacturing sector), that would be $42.3 million for compensation. For 1,500 people! That's $28,200 per person!
Taking an extreme that the compensation is 40% of revenues, it still means the average total compensation is $37,600 per person!
It's a shabby little outfit, the product is junk (high line sheets are 400 count?), and the employees are poorly paid.
He's a charlatan.

23. I always notice them

Watch the Prevagen commercials. At least two of the male spokesmodels have them, worn obviously, sticking out of their shirt collars in a way to try to look casual but is clearly intentional.

For me, that display makes buying the product being hawked a real non-starter.

7. Lindell has relatively deep pockets. Dominion should go for broke

Allegedly, Lindell is worth $300 Million.

It's very odd to have one's net worth listed on Wikipedia (in my experience, at least).

Occupation Founder and CEO of My Pillow
Net worth US$300 million (2018)[1]
Political party Republican

37. I Doubt It

The whole company is worth $150 million with around $124 million in debt.
Net income before taxes is around $9 million. They only incorporated in the middle of 2009.
I do not believe the net worth is $300 million.
This guy is pulling the same "fake rich guy" scamp T+&#@ pulled.
