    Great days ahead

    Just a heads up. I have no idea how the stock market will value MLHR, however as a dealer we are getting ready for some amazing times. Two new systems are coming out very soon. Vivo, a price sensitive product and My Studio a niche high performance product.
    My total attention is focused on hiring more staff to handle the new business. These new products although a long time coming are exactly what a dealer wants, i.e. high performance and design at the right price.
    These new products are amazing.
    Oh, yes its not just product. HMI's management is working 24/7 keeping their great distibution network involved and invigorated.
    The next five years are going to be a rocket ride unless some unforseen international events ruin the economy.

    • well - i like hmi too - but, didn't hmi bail out you money losing, poorly managed dealers some time ago. of course your drinking the coolaid. on an unbiased note - i think there's room yet for hmi - but we're talking small increments.

      • Boy, what a sarcastic response. All of the major manufacturers bail out some poorly managed dealers to maintain market presence. HMI very carefully moniters it's dealers profitability with a benchmark reporting tool that drills down very deep inside the dealer. Drinkly the "coolaid" is again a cynics view of portraying dealers as a blind herd of sheep with no discernment. Why the attitude? or as you say bias.
        Back to the excitement of the new products. The marketing staff has come out with some very fine collateral and the Out and About strike force is working hard preparing / training distibution on these future money makers.
