Seems quite a large ammount of money to invest,I now ponder if the price of tackle will drop as i can see manufacture of products amalgated to certian countrys,and this sometimes means the lowering of standards in persuit of bigger profits,after all this company will not invest this ammount without surveying the returns involved,watch this space.

IMHO It probably won't effect much, these types of buyouts are on a managment level, the companies if large enough are usually left to there own devices internally and on the "public level"

The only real difference in sharing of pruduct manufacture and hopefully customer services.

Please note these comments are general and not concerning this specific company.
