    • I believe I read in GAI annual report Royal Appliance has a more than 30 days to pay!

    • beanbean, I'm not sure I understand your message---are you saying that Royal has 60 days payment terms? How do you know?

    • I have a different take on the company's latest earnings report. GAI is cashflow positive, and cut expenses to slightly increase profits in spite of a decrease in revenues. The cash burn rate from their OLED business is low(0.5 M/qtr)and easily absorbed at this point. They have a solid appliance and floor care business, are a low cost contract manufacturer(China), and are likely to resume profit growth as the economy improves. They are realistically cutting their losses by selling TFEL, and their high tech initiatives(OLED and heat engine) are relatively low risk/high return projects.

      Selling at less than cash, with negligible debt, GAI is a Benjamin Graham type investment, with a high margin of safety, and the potential to be a multibagger for the patient investor.
