    Cash Conundrum

    Some here are hoping for an acquisition of a new product.

    According to my numbers for 2009 (admittedly we don't have the 09numbers yet), a $40 million share repurchase executed at $110 a share, would raise FD e.p.s. based on my existing assumptions from about $8.25 to about $10.10/share.

    Such a deal would leave ATRI with about $10 million out on their line of credit at the end of 2009 and a minimal cash balance. The line of credit likely would be fully repaid before the end of 2010.

    This assumes that business doesn't tank due to macro conditions.

    This would be a share repurchase of about 17.5% of the shares. It would leave management (assuming they did not participate in my imagined Dutch Tender with a significantly increased ownership stake in the company.
