Hi Ed, Glad to hear from someone interested in FARO.

I've owned FARO since it was a HG in 2003. It has performed OK in those years in growing its stock price from $12 to $40s (today is one of several times it's taken a big hit).

I noticed they are in patent litigation again and that always makes shareholders uneasy. As you noticed, the overseas sales were hit the hardest so I would think it's the world wide economic factors more than its losing whatever moat it had in the laser scanner field.
