Used to work for a company that got gobbled up by a private equity firm, they went after cash flow and money making assets. Laid off every single person that was not 100% essential - milked cash flow and sold us in chunks. That's what'll happen - I do not belieave there is anyone who will be buying us as an integrated company
Well, that is the private equity model. Load up the company with debt, fire lots of people, flip the company in 3 to 6 years, PROFIT.
