I am interested in getting into this stock. I have heard some rumors about a deal with Terabeam, and something about Kodak. Can anyone give me any info on what is going on with Mead's deals with these companies.
I've heard nothing re: Kodak. Meade is providing some mirrors to TeraBeam (you can check them out at www.terabeam.com). Mgmt has been mum on what that deal could be worth, mainly because (I'm betting) it's still highly speculative. If I were you, I'd look at Meade's core business, decide if you think they can regain anything close to their former growth rate with that business, then decide what you think it's worth.
Then, if something sexy happens outside the box, it's just gravy...
What I heard about Kodak was this...I heard that Meade was building a facility right behind theirs to handle what ever it is they are going to do for Kodak. This came from someone who works at Mead. Take it for what its worth, this is all the info I know and I am no longer in contact with this person. If there is anyone on the board who works at Meade maybe they can shed light on this.
