    I would like to venture a guess that IMAX is probably going to be acquired soon, may be within one year. Just a guess ..

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Don't care if acquired or not but hope for the rumor. Watched this ruse 3 times past 12 yrs., agree time for another round. Regards

      As much as my short term greedy side may want to agree with you the actions taken by IMAX over the last year or so tells me management sees too much upside in the next year or two to sell. They have be making key hires worldwide in development, sales and marketing seeking to build out their network and further their brand. They also have been quietly ramping up to a Laser lit technology solution that could be a bigger leap forward in picture quality than digital. Whatever they could sell for now would be chump change if and when their network doubles along with a technology that will set the bar at a lofty height similar to what Apple did with the iPhone and the iPad years ago. The growth in stock price would, no doubt, take a similar trajectory. That said, if the number was big enough…

      • Ekave,

        I am aware of all the developments you mentioned. It is just that there is so much consolidation happening in the industry , it is hard to imagine that imax will be left alone specifically when we know that the imax mgmt stated more than once in the past that selling is an option if the price is right.They tried to sell too. The best time to sell is when the growth perception exists. The only question is, who would be the buyer??The buyer has to be the kind of entity which is able to continue imax's independence from theater networks and studios to benefit from the relationships built over a period of time.So , it cannot be a Studio or theater network.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy
