CKP Eyes Acquisitions

Checkpoint Systems Inc. (NYSE:CKP) is looking for acquisition opportunities. NS Advisors, LLC currently owns 0.843 million shares of Checkpoint. Shockingly NS Advisors learned on last evenings' earnings call that CKP is pursuing acquisition opportunities that could severely leverage the balance sheet (debt up to 3 times EBITDA according to the CEO). As NS Advisors pointed out in our April 7, 2015 letter, over the past 10 years the company has spent over $660 million of the shareholders money on acquisitions, R&D and cap-ex, yet the company's market-cap has declined by $255 million. Given the board's poor capital allocation record, it is paramount that no acquisitions be made until investors have adequate representation on the board.

Checkpoint Systems Enables Retailers to Obtain Critical Data and Analytic Intelligence with S3i RTLS Wireless In-Store Network

Checkpoint Systems Inc. announced the launch of S3i, a scalable RTLS (real time location system) wireless in-store network that works with enhanced Alpha High Theft Solutions’® alarmed devices to obtain critical data and analytic intelligence, increasing sales, improving on-shelf availability and reducing shrink on high-value merchandise. S3i’s smart devices work in conjunction with smart keys to register all events, such as commissioning, removal of devices and theft. Through better and real-time stock visibility and shrink reduction, store managers are then able to increase sales. Better stock visibility allows retailers to know where the products are in real time, and also have a clear and accurate vision of the quantities, while the use of smart keys reduces both internal and external shrink. S3i offers retailer's corporate management, store operations and loss prevention critical data on inventory quantity, location and movement of their high-value items within the store. For example, a store manager can have immediate visibility to all of the store's high-value merchandise protected with S3i devices. When a shopper inquires about a specific item, the store associate can quickly locate it following the user-friendly graphical user interface. Any shoplifting attempt to remove the S3i device creates an immediate alert/alarm that enables store personnel to address according to store policies. In addition, any removal of the S3i device with an authorized key is logged and can help reduce incidents of internal theft.
