I think acquisitions are just being deferred until the furore about 'takeover accounting' raised by Northern Trust has died down. The proof of that pudding will be whether cashflow actually does increase correspondingly in a period when there are no "exceptional" expenses as a result of takeover activity. It's a pretty fragmented sector and I suspect that in the longer run RCP will remain a 'hunter' rather than a 'hunted'.
With no further acquisitions planned , a depressed sp , rising cash flow and high revenues, could RPC Group become a takeover target ?

"They are deemed essential for running the business are they not?" Not really. The cost savings on a takeover are usually achieved by stripping out duplication of management and administration. Keeping them on during the 'earn out' period is just a way of holding them to account and making sure they achieve the forecasts behind the deal. Salaries would not be a big element anyway and would probably be treated as an 'exceptional' cost in the year of takeover.
