You are NOT stupid. You're just not as smart as most other people. I cannot tolerate that negativity! 😉

sorry, I clicked the wrong article. Have heard it was sold. KPS Capital Partners has signed a definitive agreement, through an affiliate, to sell TaylorMade Golf Company, Inc., to Centroid Investment Partners, a Seoul, Korea based private equity firm.

not "less stupid"... we say "more smartest"!

 

On a serious note, if this article pans out to be true, this is huge. Foreign equity firm buying one of the American Big 3 golf equipment manufacturers.

 

Only thing that would make it spicier is if it went to a Saudi-based firm.

will be interesting to see what happens. Will the micromanage or will the let them run free... With it being Korean based company will they go for a more Asian high end offering? Or stick with what they have been doing. This could be very interesting or be some dark days for Taylormade..

In reality, it's pretty much going from one venture firm to another.

 

Yeah.  Wake me up when TM is sold to another OEM....now that's news.

The whole goal of these investment groups is to acquire, grow, then dump companies for profit. They really do not want to run them long term..

So we should most likely see more of the same from them? Not a huge TM guy myself, but there's no debating that market share of theirs. They must have been doing something right.

Maybe an expert in finance and investments can chime in here and correct me if I'm wrong.

 

If an investment firm is acquiring a company, doesn't that imply they are intending to spruce it up and flip it to someone for more money?  I wonder how this effects their day to day operations.  

My understanding is that TM was purchased roughly 4 years ago for that very reason and being flipped now at a premium.  With SIM and the P series irons, TM has been crushing it.  Very curious to see the effects of another sale...

I hope Tour Edge or Wilson decide to make a bid.  Or even better.  Kirkland.  

You mean Costco right?  I get what you're trying to say but Kirkland is Costco's house brand name, like Great Value is to Walmart.

Why sell it if it's doing so well according to this article? Seems a little weird. 

Most of these PE funds have a ~ten year life and investments are only meant to be held for 4-7 years unless something goes seriously sideways.
