From the Paper:

"Riordan's expansion into the Canadian market should be resoundingly approved by both its board of directors and its shareholders although the latter is not necessary. This strategy is more than just an attempt to gain cost efficiencies across markets but an attempt to enter a new market altogether and provide for long-term, future growth opportunities that would otherwise not be present. In this sense, Riordan's suggested expansion into the Canadian market should not be viewed as a risk inherent endeavor but rather as an opportunity loaded strategy with little downside. Research indicates that break-even is essentially a foregone conclusion between 3-5 years and everything afterwards can be considered profit generation as long as overhead is met."
