    • I was thinking the trading in dtlk was a little odd the last several days, with volume coming on the upticks. Based on that, i'd expect the terms to be favorable and for this to be accretive to earnings. Hopefully this is the catalyst to get the stock over 10 again ...

      • Apparently StraTech was owned by Midas Medici (MMED) a public company with a $0.28 stock price, so I suspect it may have been on good terms.

        A little insight from the StraTech web site:

        "We have a large and diverse base of more than 850 customers throughout the United States, representing a cross-section of industries and sizes ranging from Fortune 100 companies to start-ups."

        Guessing it is probably a relatively small deal. Hope it is accretive.
