Rates this as C+ in his system, but is probably going to have to upgrade that. Revenue is starting to accelerate. Have a new management team on board that is basically focusing the company and going for profitable business, instead of just doing acquisitions. Last quarter was very, very solid. Stock is up 174% in this last year and is starting to get noticed again.

Relatively risky but the company has made a lot of the right moves. Grew very fast but like a lot of companies, had problems with some of their acquisitions. Have a pretty high cost structure. Thinks the worst is over. On a five-year timeframe, the trend for outsourcing is still there.

Made a big acquisition about 2 years ago, which basically almost blew the company up. There were a lot of money-losing contracts that they have been trying to clean up. Eventually it will probably turn around, but the question is will they get it done in 08 or 09.
