Merit Medical Systems is a medical device manufacturer that specializes in single use items. It has about 200 million in sales per year.

The company has a clean balance sheet, no debt, and management runs a tight ship. With several new high margin products just coming on line and several others in the pipeline, they are a tasty minnow swimming in a sea of hungry sharks. By itself, it is in a stable, recession proof industry and would make a decent investment. In my opinion however, it is a prime buyout target.
