The Street needs to be able to #$%$ the acquisitions in terms of rev. streams acquired and then successfully integrated into the NUAN balance sheet.The current pace of acquisitions probably won't allow that to happen, at least any time soon. I often think Ricci is deliberately "mystifying" the numbers to keep investors and analysts off balance.
