The Ridgback is comparable to Force Protection's Cougar 4x4 vehicle.
"The delivery today of the first five Ridgback vehicles represents an important step in our continuing efforts to provide critical protection for the British forces. Through the efforts of many people within Force Protection, we are able to deliver these first Ridgback vehicles one month ahead of schedule," said Michael Moody, chief executive officer.
The British Ministry of Defence has ordered 157 Ridgback vehicles for a total cost of approximately $94 million. Although the British Ministry of Defence has used the Cougar 6x6 (Mastiff) since late 2006, this is the first Ridgback delivery to the United Kingdom.

Technically, FRPT has been showing support around $3.28 and resistance in the $4.47 range. The selling signal is on today but very weak.

I bet they get bought by a rival after the turmoil. They are at a measly 200 million market cap. They had over 800 million in 2007 sales. Earnings today, conference call, and then the Marine contract by Oct. 1st. We shall see.

Didn’t get a chance. It’s just an obvious synopsis. Market cap versus revenues. You also have several players in the DoD contract. The military is already using there vehicles. They will make the final cut then get bought, if not before.

Didn't FRPT say in one of their PR's that they've been booted from the JLTV program? It'd make sense then why FRPT is not mentioned as a competitor in any recent article about the program. Somebody tell me I'm wrong.

Off of ihub, I'll keep looking for the actual source. I think it was transcript of a conference call. Juice should know.

"On August 14, 2008, we were informed that we were no longer in consideration for the JLTV program Milestone A (Technology Demonstration Phase). We will continue to pursue opportunities on the JLTV program by working with Milestone A vendors to determine whether there are potential fits for Force Protection technology (e.g. Force Armor™). In addition, we will continue to monitor the JLTV program as it transitions from Milestone A to Milestone B (System Development Phase) in fiscal years 2010 - 2011 with a view to reentering the competition.
