I initially raised the question of nepotism. It's a question only, as I do not have enough information to have an informed opinion.
There is room for some clever things to be done with this company. The packaging business should be taken private in an LBO. I would be delighted if the Keane family sought to do this, assuming they paid a fair value. The electronics business needs to be joined with a larger global electronics franchise in order to expand its technological reach and to expand its product sales into international markets. Keane Sr. had done a great job of building this business over the years. Kevin Keane has been at ATRO for 30 years. He's 67. It is not reasonable to expect him to run the company for another 30 years. Ultimately, there is a succession or an end game. With the stock now unchanged from where it was at the end of September, 97--nearly 3 years--it's now worth asking: where do we go from here?
