Does anyone see the combination of this deal and DOSE's hiring of DLJ as the prelude to a sale?

Also, while I expected growth turbulence, the latest news is the first I've heard regarding the poor performance of the 5 pharmacies and the troubles with customer payments. While my basis is low, I wonder if those investors who bought in the teens are thinking "lawsuit"?

Looking for better news,
