The way theyre going, its only a matter of time before theyre bought by Avigilon...

I agree with the conclusion.
I'm guessing someone would find the 3VR useful enough to buy - but for how much?

Somewhere around 1x revenue, depending on who they find to buy it.

It wouldn't be a bad pickup for a conglomerate who wants to drop in a recorder line for retail / banking. And if they could get it for $15 - $25 million, then cut redundant operating costs, put into their sales channel, it might be a profitable move.

Now John, what would you really know about 3VR ;)
