    Unlikely lovers...

    I agree with one of the other posters. I have never said CRY is a bad investment. In fact I sometimes own stock of both companies...I admit I trade CRY's channel range.

    CRY's stock price is low. It has a market cap. divided by revenue multiple of 1.8x. That is low for a medical company. It is caused by slow revenue/margin growth. It is difficult to buy anything with a cheap asset (e.g. CRY's stock). Note, for most medical companies this multiple is 4x to 5x, but they have better top line growth too.

    Medafor has both rapid and visible projected top line/margin growth. Hence, Medafor shareholders will demand a higher market cap divided by revenue multiple.

    Generally, you can't buy expensive assets with cheap assets. Hence, I don't see the two companies as lovers.

        I could perhaps make a "pretty good guess" at the numbers you ask for. However, Medafor is on a calendar year. The 2009 audited financial statements have not yet been shared with Medafor shareholders. I don't expect this for several more months either. You are not going to see numbers from me in any event. If others disclose them and discuss them, then I may comment. For now, the real question is whether Medafor has, and will continue to have, sufficient cash flow to legally resist CRY until the end of the day, The answer to that is "I think so and I hope so". Time will tell won't it?

        Should CRY decide to make a reasonable offer with reasonable conditions, I'm not opposed to a CRY offer, or any other offer, under these conditions. However, based upon events to date, it may be impossible to ever develop a trust relationship with CRY. Hence, I don't think the two compamies will ever be lovers.
