Es posible que el rumor se quede ahi, en rumor. De todas formas es muy posible es que llame la atencion sobre los numeros de la compañia:
Skechers stock also has ideal characteristics for a buyout target. There’s a lot of cash and short-term investments on the balance sheet (~$900 million), and hardly any debt (less than $70 million in long-term debt). Thus, the company has a net cash position of roughly $800 million, meaning the $4.2 billion market cap underlying Skechers stock translates into a $3.4 billion enterprise value.
Sales over the past twelve months measure $4.5 billion, while EBITDA is around $520 million. Thus, Skechers stock is trading at roughly 0.7X EV/Sales and ~6.4X EV/EBITDA. Those are anemic multiples for a double-digit-growth company. A potential suitor could pay a huge premium for Skechers stock, and still only pay just over 1X EV/Sales.
