    Would a buy out make sense

    from perhaps a company like Herbalife? Would YGYI even consider such a proposition ?

    Sentiment: Hold

    • Not really. Unfortunately a buyout would cost another company, at bare minimum, 103 million with the market cap. The downside to that company that would buy them, is that YGYI made negative income of 430,000 last year, and this past quarter only about 1 million. Therefore, at a 103+ mil buyout, the buying company (at this rate) would have to wait about 25 years just to get that income back, or based on the year income, they'd never get it back. There's too much discrepancy in the numbers for it to be a SAFE bet that another company would buy them. That doesn't mean, however, that it couldn't happen. Another company might see something about YGYI that is easily fixable, but a conversative company would most likely stay away.

    • It would make alot of sense to me and probably something they'll do down the road but right now I doubt it...that's our only hope with this #$%$ company

      Sentiment: Hold

      • I have been watching the message boards for some time and cannot believe how little you investors know about this company. Some of you still think this is a coffee company, as it was know as JavaFit. Coffee is still a significant part of their sales...but they are much more than a coffee company. The company has a long term plan over the next five years and the San Diego Business news articles have indicated this might be a billion dollar company in the making. They are building their network through aggressive acquisitions and internal growth. Venessa Hunter probably left because of the tremendous strain on her personal life with all the growth through acquisitions and growth. Steve Schulz left because Send out Cards offered him alot of money and Youngevity didn't feel they wanted to meet the offer. If you haven't noticed, Youngevity is acquireing many companies...and have no intention of being acquired. In fact, they cannot be acquired because the Wallachs own more than half of the stock and have made it clear they will never sell. They have made a firm committment the the distributor network that the company is not for sale. If you knew anything about this company, you would realize how rediculous this is. This is not your typical corporate stock...but over time, it will pay back far more than you could ever imagine. If you are out for a fast buck....this is not the stock to buy. The short term price means little or nothing as their is no volume. If you noticed, they just acquired two more companies. With the cost involved and the fact that they probably are temporarily halting the stock buy back program...of course the stock might drop alittle. Just creates a great buying opportunity because this company has incredible product line, they are saving lives with their products, and they have the greatest distributor sales team in the idustry. Find out more about his company before you make comments.
