      • ==for your issue of not being the price range you thought they should have paid is really amature (sp) on your part.==

        So - it's OK to buy a company for a 10X EBIT-DUH multiple? Really?

        If DUH'Marco bought the Brooklyn Bridge, the price would be irrelevant? (snark)

        Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • Pics, it is not AMATURE, whatever that means, it is just reality.

        Pics , we do not have to wait until the meeting to find out what the past acquisitions meant for kratos and the kratos shareholders, JUST LOOK AT THE STOCK PRICE. WE ARE ABOUT 30 CENTS FOR AN ALL-TIME demarco LOW, OR JUST 3 CENTS PRE REVERSE SPLIT.

        9 LONG PLUS YEARS OF DESTRUCTION BY demarco, carano, the mismanagement teams and the very very very weak board

        We already know

        Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • Pics, the operating cost that were saved, that you reference because of the overpriced acqusitions, are small compared to the INTEREST EXPENSE ON THE JUNK DEBT AT 10% OR INTEREST EXPENSE OF ABOUT $65,800,000.00 PER YEAR. The saving are gone many times over. Try again Pics.

        Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • Just wanted to say that company officers and directors work for the shareholders. "Accomplishments" aren't determined by me, you or Dan Englander. Mr. Market is the only one who gives a grade and frankly, the equity performance has been about the worst I have ever seen since 2003, (other than bankruptcy). So all I can say when I see you holler BS about "accomplisments" is LOOK AT THE CHART!!!" Before you go all gung ho on KTOS at least give them a chance to have something to brag about. I am looking forward to translating EDM's vision of KTOS into a profit machine whose stock doubles or triples but right now I feel pretty &^%$ stupid for buying this dog. Since 1/1/2013 this thing has been descending while just about everything else has gone parabolic. Not a good thing. Good luck Pics but we ain't got nuthin to brag about just yet. Can't wait for the braggin to begin though!
