    If it's like most acquisitions they will probably be paying off debt, paying off outside investors (with a nice return), and then giving a bunch of whatever is left to the government.

    Nice to see them being bought by a good, reputable company.

    Is there something bad about BD I don't know about? All their mountaineering equipment I have is top notch quality and I don't know of any widespread quality/CS issues.

    Trying to satisfy shareholders in the outdoor equipment market is a *major* losing proposition...

    BDEL equipment coming to a Costco near you soon.

    I had no idea BD was public. Even still, I can't see how acquiring POC will hurt them in any way, especially given POC's growth since it started.

    It's not gonna hurt BD... but it's very likely gonna ruin POC.

    <shrug>

    Maybe not. Maybe they can work it out. I hear there's really big money in helmets and pads. :rofl:
