DATM released quarterly results ended Sept., which reflected good sales and profits increases. Balance sheet remains reasonable. Working capital is good at 4.7:1.

I believe DATM warned of lackluster expectations for the Q4 a while back. Is this due to some of the developments you are reporting on? Does DATM have a pretty good following (customer-wise) since they have been around since 1959? This seems to be a high-entry-barrier business. Is it possible that someone like H-P would be interested in purchasing DATM?

The industry is very good, so it looks like company-specific risk is the concern. By the way, how many competitors does DATM have and what percent of the market does DATM control? Is competition delivering quality products or are they providing lower quality at a lower price?

Just a few questions. If you have time, would you mind providing a few answers(opinions)?
