    The vast majority of that debt doesn't become due until 2010 to 2013. So yes it's a problem for then. In the meantime they can restructure that debt, extend it, and improve upon it. They are now a cash generating machine, with no dividend. So paying down the debt will be easier. I think it is much more likely that IAR will be consolidated with another company who will assume and restructure IAR's debt, hand out 1000s of layoff notices, and make even more cash by doing so. So the debt is a long term problem that needs to be addressed -- but it's very possible to do so without adversely affecting the company's ability to make money for shareholders.
