15M is reasonable. AE is a 20M company with about 8% margin. 15M is close to 10 times their annual profit, which is often used for company valuation.

Where's this news report? This is a rumor that has been around for over a year.

If AE is willing to sell out for 15M I'd crap my pants and offer to eat them. There's no way a 20+ Million a year company sells out for less than a year of business.

AE and TTR have a relationship, to say that the quality will suffer is a yes/no answer. Lots of overseas vendors from what I hear have an issue with quality control. And this is what I hear from companies here dealing with foreign vendors. That's not to say all or one specific, but there are lots of "cheaper" kits that may cheap out in material quality.

That was Gung Ho from 1986. I am surprised you know about it as that was way back.

Hopefully Thunder Tiger held back enough money to hire a webmaster to take over the duties of RC10.com.

Default GUNG HO!

That was a great movie... !!!

I can't wait to see the part where the Taiwanese supervisor tries to kill himself because of having to work with all the AE guys

j/k AE guys... you aren't that bad that someone would want to kill themselves over workin' with you ........... at least I don't think

Derek, if you know people in the M&A field they will tell you that revenue means nothing. It's the asset and profit that matters when it comes to valuation. 15M is reasonable.

As for the report, here is a link if you can read Chinese.
