He owns it in a smaller cap fund. They are the largest printer of children’s content in the world. They have great real estate in Manhattan. They reported last night and EPS and revenue were down a bit. But a better metric is price to cash flow and he likes it. They have no debt. In a couple of years this company could be taken out by a larger entity.

A year ago they went through a restructuring and then a big acquisition in Safeway. They were left with a banner that had few discount brands in Western Canada, then tinkered with their loyalty program and that upset consumers. Last quarter the results were not liked. He used to have it but now prefers WN-T or L-T.

He likes the name. There is the uncertainty of the acquisition in the US. They are going through the process of getting state approval. They are down to one district. It will probably come in March or April. Some announced divestitures will probably be a catalyst for the stock.
