I get it now. You know how to copy and paste! Great post, scubadrunk!
p.s. If you don't understand the financial aspects of corporate borrowing, credit agreements, revolving loans, etc., I would strongly advise not even posting (or cut and pasting or whatever it is you do). Obviously you failed to realize that the $1.5 billion was for the Point acquisition and to deleverage Hypercom. In addition, EVERY public company has agreements with banks like this. They are to ensure an orderly flow of cash, day-to-day, and to deleverage from making acquisitions and other growth mechanisms. I am now convinced you are a real id10t.
I guess the professional investment community from Barclay's, JPMorgan, to Duesche Bank somehow missed this news because the stock is up over 1.5% since it was announced early last week. I am sure they will thank you for your wonderful insight.
