He bought it twice and did not do well. This was a turnaround play. Brought in new management to do the turn-around. This company is just not doing well. Stocks don’t usually do well until a year after a consolidation.

They have been backed into a corner because they had very little cash. They were in a market that was in decline. He likes the management. They’ve made a lot of changes. They’ve cut costs and sold off some of their divisions. Now talking expansion and new revenues. They just got a line of credit of $15 Million.

(A Top Pick March 25/08. Down 81.1%.) Supply temps for jobs especially in the IT industry. Under normal conditions they would be doing much better. CEO is known for going into companies and doing turnarounds. Because of economic difficulties, this is taking more time. No debt but very little cash and are losing about $1 million a quarter.

Staffing industry primarily for IT. Been wrong on this one for the last 2 years but new CEO has a good record of consolidation and selling companies at a premium. Appears to be doing the same thing here. Caveat: A lot of people are being laid off in the US and there is a question how many people companies will be taking on.

Paid $2.82 in Dec/03. In the IT field, do a lot of staffing with about $300 million in sales. Basically in a break even mode. In the midst of a merger or takeover with Computer Horizons (CHRZ-Q) which does about $250/280 million sales. Both companies have pristine balance sheets with virtually no debt. Will probably lose money because of the merger costs. Longer term they have a chance to be bigger players in the industry. A long term play.

Consultants software programming helping companies' outsourcing. Got hit by the collapse of the tech bubble and outsourcing to places like India. Now appears to have turned the corner. Have made money the last 3 quarters. Made an acquisition that will give them some presence in the voice over IP. Good relationship with Cisco.
