Owen is the only former executive of Transduction Electronics who is not wanted or imprisoned. He claimed that he had no knowledge of what the company was really doing. His powerful contacts and exceptional lawyer got him off with only a hefty fine. A hefty fine that he more than paid for by investing in Planetary Dynamics before events blew up at Transduction Electronics. A few months later Planetary Dynamics developed a procedure that would remove the TE technology and shares in their stock skyrocketed.
