      Not sure what this means (if anything) but thought it could turn into a good discussion. Actually, Fox is owned by Compass Diversified Holdings (basically a private equity company) and they’re the ones buying Camelbak for about $250M.

      These types of roll ups in the industry seem to be becoming more common. Dorel has a similar portfolio, owning Cannondale, GT, Mongoose, and Sugoi. Good for consumers? What about product innovation?

      The story also says that the buy "included $12.5 million of cash and working capital adjustments." That means CamelBak has a bit more spending money now – hopefully that means R&D will be on the upswing and we can expect cool new things from CamelBak!

      Hmm interesting. I’m not sure what I think philosophically about all of these companies being bunched together into one big conglomerate.
