they evidenatly didn't turn a profit the last few years until last year and even then not by much. This can't hurt.

It sounds like an investment company that purchased Remington. Investment companies may know about making money for themselves in the short-term (e.g. position it for resale at a higher price), but it doesn't mean they know anything about the business they've purchased or running it.
Our corporation sold 1 of the 3 companies we had supported for many years several years back to what sounds to be a similar investment company. They didn't even have an IT organization or technology center to run their systems/apps out of. It took them all of 2 years to figure out enough to build an IT org and tech. center, so they fully run their own business systems. That company is now a shadow of what it once was.
I hope Remington Arms does better and that they have owners who have clue. Otherwise, it's not good.

The best info on the Remington buyout I have found is from Bloomberg

Hope they turn it around

I know some folks aren't going to agree with me on this one but I don't think it couldn't get much worse. I see it as a positive.

As long as they don't change anything I think it will be fine. Leave the best alone.

$370 million doesn't seem like much for a big name like Remington.
