    Valuation and Conclusion
    Valuation
    In our opinion, there are 2 ways to value EUNI, one a multiple of earnings, and two a multiple of revenues. According to Multex, EUNIís peer group trades in the marketplace at 32.95 times earnings (for those few companies that earn money). Based on $0.40 per share in earnings for the upcoming fiscal year (beginning next month), this would equate to a stock price of $13.18 per share.

    If we look to value EUNI on a multiple of revenues, then we should look no further than Yahoo. Unlike Yahoo, EUNI is growing in just about all aspects of their business, the only difference for the most part is, Wall Street has not heard of EUNI. If EUNI were to trade today in the marketplace, at the same multiple of revenues as Yahoo (which is 8 times), then based on analysts forecastís of $52.8 Million in revenues for the upcoming fiscal year, this would equate to a stock price of $14.08 per share.

    Conclusion
    With the continued positive outlook in EUNIís revenue and earnings growth, we believe that EUNI is a compelling and undervalued investment opportunity for risk oriented investors. We believe, as Wall Street catches on to the EUNI story, this could have positive effect to EUNIís share price.
