>>>My biggest fear is their limited customers. My understanding is that they have clients such as Marriott who represent a big portion of revenue. If that source dries up then uh oh! <<<


Not to mention their main vendor, Hitachi. I called Xeta and talked to the CFO a few weeks ago. He said that if they lost Hitachi it would hurt bad. Also, this company is subject to the hotel industry's cycles. For the last few years, the industry has been on an upswing. If/when the cycle turns, growth will stop (maybe even shrink). But, over half of their revenue comes from service contracts, so maybe they'll be ok.
