Letter: Tech company's promise inflated?

I read that Suffolk County was looking forward to the anticipated move of a Florida technology company ["Florida biotech company making Melville move," Business, July 4]. BioRestorative Therapies employs three people with average salaries of $236,000 a year, and lost $5.8 million last year.

Yet it says it plans add 25 workers in the next two years, and the Suffolk County Industrial Development Agency has offered $224,464 in tax savings over five years.

Seems very fishy to me.
