Hi, Andy.Glad to know I'm not the only one here!I am only an X-Rite shareholder as of about a month ago. I believe you're exactly right - Ferrara did a pretty good job of growing the company and taking them from being an instrument company that made spectrophotometers to the point of being the leader in the color management space.I've also met Vacchiano - right before it was announced that he was to become CEO. I found him to be an incredibly forthright, plain-spoken guy who I believe will be much more shareholder-focused than Ferrara was. He also seemed intent on growing the company quickly to avoid potential competitive threats by companies like Epson, Canon, etc. In addition, I think he's taking over the company at a great time. With the merger closed, it would seem X-Rite is poised to dominate the industry. And their financials don't look too shabby, either. I am a member of Hidden Gems. I will try to see if there's a board where you can post suggestions for future gems. If not, I'll still be building up my position as long as we're under about $13.00 or so, as I think there's an opportunity to get in before a big price move after next quarter's results.Best,Andy
