I was gonna close last night by adding that, in spite of my concerns, ya gotta love a company that deploys 90% of earnings in share buybacks. They keep doing this for 5 more years and there ain't much left.Quite impressed with lower sales but higher margins. And, of course, the new buyback.I think.
justfoolin - agree with your thoughts. My math works out lik this, start $156mn in estimated net income. Add in $36mn in interest expense from tender, tax effected becomes $22mn impact to net income. Pro Forma net income of $134mn on new share base of 22.5mn shares gives me a new estimate of $5.95 in EPS for this year. With small maintence cap-x needs, cash flow is very strong, should be able to pay down debt from dutch auction in about 3 years. With minimal same store growth and the stores added over that time period, the company should be earning almost $8. And it will once again be an unleveraged cash flow machine.
