ALU seems to have found credible technology that is in demand. Efforts being made to clean up the balance sheet and bring cost inline to improve gross and operating margins.

Because it is loaded with very valuable wireless patents. They have finally cut back on their unprofitable sectors. The new mgmt also seems to be putting the company on the right footing.

I am a novice investor, but I purchased ALU shortly before the new CEO took over, and from what I have been reading and watching the price, I would say this stock is headed in the right direction. I believe the company will continue to d oso for the next few years, at which time it will level off.

this company recently added 20%of new shares available only to French stock owners. They are available to them for only $2.90. I pulled out and intend to stay out. I look at this as a way for the French ALU officers to steal the company from the shareholders.

The restructing plan will bring FCF back to the company while more contracts for broadband equipment will be awarded to ALU. Both of these effects will grow the top and bottom line.

This stock has weak financial books and needs help. NOK is looking at them and needs them. If they can work this out it is an up side story.

With very little returns coming from the financial markets, Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse must have been chafing at the bit to lend money to/ invest in ALU. Most definitely not the ´´cap in hand´´ scenario that some may think.

ALU is a high-cost producer of commoditized products, in a competitive marketplace, where buyers are in the driver's seat. In a continuation of a historical pattern, management remains mired in telco-think, refusing to move outside of a box of its own creation. The primary problem: love--love of control; love of their little fiefdoms. There are way too many people for what's being delivered. They are smart, sure; and they make good stuff. But other people are smart, too, and make equally good stuff. The vaunted Bell Labs, pride of the real, original, AT&T, has been surpassed. Workers at Bell Labs used to get free long distance phone calls, a nice perk. Nowadays, Google Talk provides the same perk to anybody with a gmail account.

Talk of licensing the 29000-strong patent portfolio is naive at best. There is no intrinsic value to a patent. In fact, the disclosures in a patent are quickly scanned by competitors, and shamelessly cloned if they are of any use. If you ever find out, you are free to sue for damages in the cloner's home country court system. After years of obfuscation and delay, and filing countless documents in a foreign language, you may even get a judgment in your favor. Damages! Great! Now, you are entitled to use the loser's legal/banking system to collect. After more years go by (and countless fees and percent reductions are applied), you might get a smallish check in the mail. My advice: hurry up and cash it--that's the "value" your patent has brought you.

Now, ALU turns to vulture capitalists to fund their labor-shedding task. My guess is that ALU management will not meet whatever deadline the Goldman folks have driven into the loan agreement, and a massive transfer of (nominal) value will be in the works.

YMMV.
