    Melting ice cube

    Fortunately, this company has no long term debt. This gives them the flexibility to continue to destroy equity value for a few more years. Yes, they've had a nice run recently however this is the same CEO who took the stock from over 30 to the current level in a few years.

    Returns on equity and assets have been negative. It's unlikely the founder has the right skill set to pull off the turnaround they've said they're embarking on. Hard to get excited about a concept that closed 31 North American traditional stores last fiscal year and says they are going to close 30-45 more sites in 2013/14. While value players may see a story here, there's no growth story when you will have closed 20% of your core market by 2014.
