    Should see continued growth in 2015.
    The relationship with Schein and Elanco
    will keep us smiling.

    If Carlson rubbed two nickels. He might be
    able to tally 8 cents? Startek is an employment
    agency employing nearly 12,000 people worldwide.
    Its business is labor intensive with low margin
    returns. Its paper thin operating margins are continuously
    under pressure by increasing costs. Carlson has had
    4 years to improve operations, in an environment where
    all of his peers are doing better than he is. What is this?
    A perennial Soviet 5 year plan?
    So far. Startek is trading dollars and cannot put 2 positive
    quarters together ,back to back. He promises double digit
    returns in 2015?
    Its show me time Mr Double nickels.

    Big swing and a miss in Q4

    Jreb, Did you notice Engine also has an interest
    in PFSW? Privet's Rosenzweig who sits on Startek's
    board also is a board member of PFSweb.
    Coincidence? Perhaps Privet and Engine share more
    than the affinity to the same investments.

    Big swing and a miss in Q4

    Thanks, I found it very interesting. The date of the filing
    was in April of 2014, showing a holding of 575,000 shares.
    At over 3% , Engine Capital is one of SRT's largest institutional
    shareholders. It seems like this activist has been very successful
    in pushing for change in undervalued companies.
    The latest Carbonite deal is an example.
    Startek already has several activist groups who have a stake.
    I too expect the company to be acquired at some point in the
    future. If management continue to stumble. It could be sooner,
    rather than later?

    Jreb, I have to agree. Time for Carlson & Co to start eating
    their own dog food. No inside purchases for over two years
    is a tell. I'm getting tired of the fits and starts. Maybe he should
    concentrate on making the existing business profitable, before
    making new acquisitions? Where did you see the information
    on Engine Capital?

    Now would be a good time for a secondary

    Mlrb, Revenues are up, and more important,
    operating margins are increasing. The companie's
    NOL's will shelter profits for many years increasing
    cash. Why not let Heska imaging pay for itself, rather
    than dilute with a secondary?
    Your grandfather was right. But that is another subject.

    Wilson has plenty enough incentive through generous
    stock options, without diluting shareholders to pay himself
    more. There is only 4-5M float and you want to dilute
    by 25-50%?
    Do that ......and watch the share price tank.
    If Wilson continues momentum I expect. The company
    will have plenty of cash to pay off the remaining balance
    on Cuattro.

    Stock down 8%

    Could be? Its also possible a bear trap manipulator looking
    to trip stops. Anyone who uses stop limit orders with this thinly
    traded company is going to lose his position.

    Better late than never.
    Abaxis reported last week and beat expectation.
    Idexx disappointed.
    Clearly ABAX and HSKA are taking market share
    from IDXX.
    The relationship with Henry Schein is growing
    and Heska's new announcement of distribution
    in Canada confirms. Schein recently acquired
    the Canadian distributor.
    We will see double digit growth for Heska in 2015.
    With the limited float, and multiple expansion HSKA
    could see $30.
    A couple years ago Heska employees were glum
    and downbeat. Wilson has changed the culture and
    created a positive attitude.
    I expect to see good news of the relationship with
    Eli Lilly/Elanco. Elanco will like expand operations
    at Diamond, and could very well purchase the Iowa
    facilities. Eli Lilly has become one of the largest
    pharmas in Animal Health as a result of the deal
    with Novartis. Heska and Elanco's relationship
    will grow similarly, as Abaxis has with Abbott.
