Booleansearcher, while your heart may be in the right place I do not think that he has the authority to make that decision. And to be able to sell you have to have a buyer, I do not see why anyone would take them over at this price. I even find it hard to fathom any entity finding an attraction to buy them at much lower levels. They do not do anything unique or proprietary, no guaranteed long term contracts that will yield large profits, no large potential contracts on the horizon, no talented management and no value in their name.
It would be more efficient if someone wanted to enter this market to do their own start up. Kaman does work like this and could expand into this market further if they saw value in entering it to begin with, but through CPI would not make sense. Kaman is a strong, well run, reputable company.
I find it hard to believe there would be any companies or private equity firms wanting this headache.
But hey you can always hope though.
