Don't worry about "powerful forces", Implant has THE BUYING FORCE OF THE UNIVERSE behind them.
Any company in huge debt will be a short target and some competitors maybe playing that target or a future buyer is holding it down. However, Implant is proving to the world that it will innovate and market (sell) its way out of that debt.
Today's 3.5M order, relatively speaking, is small potatoes compared to the pipeline ( pending or strong prospects).
Consider this scenario: Another competitor ( #B) receives cargo cert. from TSA...the second current competitor ( #C) is bounced...all of #C gear gets replaced...and it won't be by #B...and that is significant but pales compared to this: the cargo screening market in the USA will grow by 1000% over the next 2 years...as every pkg. will be screened, NOT the current 1/20th volume. And that market is small potatoes compared to TSA Checkpoint.
You can see this unfolding as you estimate IMSC's new/evolving production capacity. My WAG-- by Dec. the new facility will be running at least 2 shifts and maybe 3, possibly over 6 days a week.
Marketing and innovating their way out of debt and onto the NASD, within 9 months. Watch it happen.
