    Lessons Learned

    People still remember clearly that just a few years ago KKD was closing lots of her stores around the world. Recent expansion (open new stores) around the world sounds familar and this realy scares many of her investors.
    Can anyone explain the difference between the current expansion and the previous expansion? I am wondering if KKD still going in the direction of reducing debts.

    • Mergers, hostil bids and SEC probes.. It's been a busy month in finance. Merger& acquisitions activity emerged again with offers being made in tech, biotech and even fertilizer, that means more corporations are deploying their large cash reserves to snap up companies. As a shareholder of acquirers, some investors may be displeased with the premiums being paid fot the current deals, but this is the reality. Irrational exuberance? I don't know.
      Anyway KKD financial situation looks better than never and speeking about their debt, they even hadn't to issue more costly prefered shares . Debt seems to be fully controled.

    • I have been worried about those same things too. It does concern me.

      I dont know the answer. However, I would say that at least many/most of the new openings APPEAR to be for international expansion. And those, anecdotally, seem to be going well.

      I would hope that 'the way' that they are opening new stores (funding, site selection, franchise/company owned, etc) is smarter than it was before.

      That would be a fantastic question to ask management.
