What: Shares of speedy business-card maker Vistaprint
So what: The company is purchasing Webs in a $117.5 million deal to expand its reach into Webs' do-it-yourself sites. Vistaprint will pay $100 million in cash and $17.5 million in restricted stock for the company.
Now what: The market obviously isn't a fan of the deal, and even management expects it to lower earnings per share in both fiscal 2012 and 2013. The price seems pretty steep for a company with $9 million in revenue that isn't expecting to be profitable until 2013. I'm not buying this move today, and I think the company could probably have found better value elsewhere.
