-New reputable CEO with good track record

-Possible private equity acquisition target
-Unique brand + growing
-Cash on the balance sheet, no debt
-Still has decent FCF and EBITDA (TTM ~ 4million and ~50million respectively)
-39% of the company is owned by insiders
-Kyle Wescoat, the Senior VP & CFO invested $79k of his own money at $5.25/share on March 14, 2013. I just liked that it was the CFO who bought.

-ROE of 20% TTM
-ROA of 24% latest Q

The company has a lot of uncertainty surrounding it, but I believe it still has the cash and relative earnings power to handle it. The brand is unique, and can be integrated and streamlined into more than just headphones (for example.... maybe with a billabong or quicksilver type name, new clothing line or something OR even maybe with Nike somehow due to new CEO?....) Possibilities are definitely there - and these guys are a lot more creative than us.
People hate this company right now, and that's a huge reason why I like it.
