My Opinion: MXT might be a Takeover target by one of the other companies in the field. They can consolidate operations and lower the expenses at MXT. It would also help another company move up its ranking in this field. PVN in my opinion would do well in considering such a move. Joe has done a very good job at PVN and it's just a matter of time before they will regain their higher standing. Any comments.
My 3 cents: Possibly in the future but not at this point (it brings "bad karma" <g>) and not not by other CC companies. Especially not by PVN... PVN is trying hard to get out of the sub-prime segment of the market and it seems to be preparing itself to be ready for takeover/sale.
The problem with a takeover picture of this company is the insider ownership picture. It was 43% before the latest buybacks (if there were any). It seems to me that any takeover must consider the high ownership position before making any moves. (The owners could probably buy up the remaining % if push came to shove) Just my thoughts on this issue.
