    The only question...

    Any deal may likely involve a MINIMUM premium of 50% from current levels.

    Based upon current projections for growth it could seemingly easily trade up 50% by late Winter. Thus any premium in a near term deal would most likely involve a premium of roughly that percentage.

    This is a company that seemingly could easily grow 20% to 25% annually in the right deep pocketed hands for YEARS. They are a relatively SMALLISH chain with a Tremendous Brand.

    • They JUST stated in the last 24 hours that they want to grow STORE COUNT approximately 15% compounded annually over the next 4 years for a total of 71% expansion. And that is just for the next 4 years.

      They MOST likely see this as highly likely target to hit if they are sharing it.

      Might be closer to 20%.

      That is NEW STORES....what about increased sales of existing stores?

      A HUGE Company could swallow up KKD and enjoy the upcoming expansion.

      OR...KKD can go it alone and enjoy the possible $35 to $45 +/- Stock Price by 2016 / 2017.

      So - simply put...if you take a possible stock price of $40 to $45 in 2016/2017 and discount it back 15% to current...

      That would equate to $17 to $23 per share. Is that the PREMIUM KKD would accept in the near term to be bought?
