Glossary

Conclusion
Internal growth appears limited, and MYCC has probably cherry-picked the best acquisition prospects in the US. The proposed market capitalization of $1 billion seems high based on the P/E multiple and the price-to-tangible book value, although the underlying real estate might provide an asset cushion. The rating is neutral to negative at the price range mid-point.
