    Zoll newbie needs some help

    I have just a few "big picture" questions here.

    Why is SG&A so high? have they made any plans to reduce this?

    Why the $10MM charge to inventories in the last 10Q?

    How can Zoll's PP&E carrying values be so low?

    How are they going to find margin improvement, it's just too low for Zoll to be of any interest to a competitor, and begs the question, is this company a value trap?

    thank you for all responses.

    • Good questions, I don't have all the answers, but I'd love to hear them.

      The SG&A is high, and tracks with sales rather than holding steady because of their incentive programs for sales. Everytime they have a blockbuster quarter SG&A sucks up most of it.

      PP&E??? not sure what you mean there.
      and I have no clue on the 10M charge... Obsolete??
