This is one of the companies which look to be doing well but whose share prices are being valued at a discount by the market. Its PER is extremely low and this counter looks to be a real bargain.

But that's the problem with the stockmarket - a counter is never guaranteed to go up even if it is doing well. It's not surprising therefore that major shareholders would want to take their companies private when they see their shares being continuous ignored and undervalued. It's even more grating when they see some deadbeat companies running losses almost year having their prices chased up by investors and speculators.
