"We are pleased with the quarterly results as stronger margins and well managed expense control resulted in improved profitability," said Vince Capobianco, President and CEO. "In the short term, we will continue to focus our efforts on consolidating and streamlining the operations at our new facility while completing the acquisition of the $180 million wholesale food business announced earlier this week. We are well positioned to integrate new acquisitions with the warehouse infrastructure in place to support annual revenue of up to $500 million. Upon the successful completion of the proposed acquisition, annualized revenue will increase to approximately $260 million, providing a solid foundation to achieve our targeted revenue of $500 million by 2012. Furthermore, we continue to actively identify and target suitable acquisitions in distribution, manufacturing and retail as we pursue our objective of becoming a full service, vertically integrated food company."

The price has gone up in recent days. Is it in anticipation of the first quarter results... or because there is an acquisition in the air? Are there people knowing things that other do not? I saw that Doren sold some more shares. I am curious to see if it would have been a better decision to wait for the first quarter results (in a week or two, if it is like last year) since the company seems to be doing so well?

The Skor numbers should be out any day. I am not anticipating negative results, in fact the company seems to be doing fairly well. I am just reducing my holdings as the stock has been quite illiquid while other situations seem to be moving.

I noticed that you sold some more SKF today and I was wondering whether you can shed some light on the recent lack of interest in this stock. It seems they are also a bit slow with releasing their latest results. So far they
have been growing nicely, but I could see high fuel prices affect the bottom line (unless they introduced fuel surcharges like so many others...)
