Well, you lived up to your namesake on this one, Howard. That sale came to pass very much as you described. Brilliant.

The sale is a good thing too, in my mind, because it un-muddies the picture and makes the company value easier to project.

I'm happily continuing to hold this one. The company is pleasantly boring to follow as an investor, generates cash, and does nice things with the cash. The CEO's speeches are almost sleep inducing. Blah-blah, cash flow, blah-blah, share buyback, blah-blah debt retirement. Blah-blah growing equity per share. Ho hum. ;-)

I hope they can meet all their challenges as well as they have in the past.
