FHN, Colt, "cringes" CCM..... Perhaps
There's one constant about any business:
Everything is for sale.
So if interested parties all chipped in $XX,XXX each, and became customer owned company...
Someone needs to do that math.
We can split up factory oversight shifts. I'll take mid September through early October.
Well, based on the 295M Euro's of debt, it would take a $7,891 USD contribution (at 1 EUR = $1.27) from each of the 47,475 current members of the forum to wipe the slate clean - on that series of notes. Actually calculating what a leveraged buyout would need would be a fun experiment, might take quite a while to figure out a SWAG from the information that's publicly available.
Colt offers $110 million in 1999 and that deal fell thur but if you refer to post #45 you will see the 2002 purchase of HK basically broke the company into pieces essentially selling the parts for more than what the company was worth as a whole. The left over HK (weapons manufacture) was subsequently purchased and leveraged to the hilt.
What we die-hard fans are missing is that we're purchasing a company for it name only. Consider HK a sinking ship struggling to stay afloat. No bullshit!
And to clarify HKusa does not have any income. The parent company holds all the cards and no way it can be sold or could buy the parent company as the HKusa division has no intellectual properties that it could possibly make money from.
Last, let keep the convo factual please as I'd like to keep this post going over the next few years.
Thank you guys!
