    NLS Future: Equipment VS ApparelVS new Category

    I think the golden days for equipment is fadeing,Too many new competitores from China, Europe and USA like Cybex and tradional competitores in the USA

    also integration of acquired companies culture take time.

    the rising star will be Apparel and Footwear or any other Fitness category like Nutrition that could elevat the Nautilus group in the future.

    This managment expereince from Apparel comapnies Like Levis.

    look at the job posting, more Apparel jobs posted,(needs from 3-4 Qtrs to hire people and be effective to pay back)

    more of the equipment production related jobs are in Tulsa as they closed/reduced? other plants, even the new China Plant if acquired will probably take till 2008 to see benefit from it.

    the most valuabe asset is the brands.

    this is a long company, i beleive they need to hire an expert in restructring and integration to put things together fast.

    Qtr 4 or 2008 if not the company may need another managment that could put it together, i am holding untill the 4th qtr.
