I think a couple other facts that are important to point out,

1) Gross margins have not been the sexiest, mainly due to the plant maintenance, competitive 2009 pricing (contracts are 2-3 years if I read everything right) and high plant utilization (stuff is breaking down) and higher labor wages. To me this sends mix signals, earnings should boost significantly if they can get their margins back to normal.

2) The founder died last November, and depending on lbo markets, this could make an potentially attractive LBO/MBO candidate given its position and solid balance sheet. Maybe management could also enter some sort of resource conversion activity with a large share buyback?

I also am curious about what multiple could this business be taken out at, I think 6-7x EBITDA or some multiple over TBV could be possible. Does anyone have deal data on other auto suppliers?

I am also long, if It continues to drop below TBV, I will def. buy more.
