Hi all,

I have been casually following KIND as I thought it may have the potential for superior returns if they succeeded in emerging from bankruptcy.

Now I see that the stock has crashed due to the shock of under provisioning for liability claims in Florida to the tune of $55M, plus a class action has also been launched on behalf of stockholders.

The class action will take years to resolve and will be diffcult to prove. As for understating reserves and the rest of the numbers, I don't know as I am familar enough with company management.

But the company intends to divest the Florida operations. What proportion of the company these assets represent I am not aware of as yet.

The finacials as they are, are passable and the stock is worth more than the current valuation.

Could this be a foolish investment?
