In my opinion, with the founder out of the picture, CTXS is poised for a takeover by a major teck company. The change in corporate officers removes the "ego" considerations from a takeover or merger. The big computer / software companies must be drooling over the possibility of buying this company. It would provide them with a top product and diversity their income stream. The cost of developing this software from scratch must be about equal to the maket cap of this company less the projected earnings stream. [any opinions on this would be appreciated] A meger with a larger company would also be beneficial to CTXS since combining its procducts with that of another company would diversify the income stream minimizing similar earnings disappointments in the future. Also, merging with another big tech company would provide CTXS with the specialized talent needed for this growing company. [This is opinion only - do your own research prior to investing or trading}.
