6 million cards from Egypt might have small margins but the volume of that many cards brings sizeable profit no matter how you slice it.  It's not about where mangement focuses their efforts, there isn't much left for them to waste time on now unless the deal is signed.  It's a sit and wait and a very big deal, not suggesting anything negative if it doesn't happen, just that it is a big deal for so many reasons including credibility for dealing with high volume contracts.
