The company really is stuck. They can't easily do a buyback without sacrificing growth, although maybe they should just cut back their spending to buy shares. That seems dumb, but the company's survival may be at stake.

The number #1 think I think they should do is identify the distributor they bought out. I fear they can't do that though, for nefarious reasons.

Maybe management could mortgage everything they own and buy shares. Or sell part of the company to a private equity group. Of course, Carlyle and the like haven't exactly knocked it out of the park with their investments (CAGC) and Starr got snookered too (CCME, which finally started trading on the pinks today and dropped 90%).
