Who buys TC Group?
« on: April 26, 2015, 12:57:11 am »

Many rumors about TC group being sold... Is it Yamaha who has bought them? I hear its 170 million. Anyone know more?

The other rumour is TC will be part of MG.

If you think of the price as a risk-adjusted and interest-rate discounted sum of future profits, 170 sounds like a lot to pay.

I had heard it may be MG as well. Another product line to cross off of my list if that happens.

I know, but I can't say.  It is NOT Yamaha and I am NOT happy.  You figure it out from there.

You won't have to go to eBay to get Lake and Labs for cheap.  Should take about 12/24 months. You'd think I'd be used to it by now, but it sucks just as bad every time.

I really don't understand these negative comment and emotion.  when MG bought Midas they invested a lot and hire 100 people in engineering... before Midas was almost bankruped and look now is doing very well.  nothing is cheap and the products are very good and on many rider. I know some engineer in UK and they are very happy how the company invest and how brand is doing.
if MG buy TC as you say, they will also invest with many engineer and this would be very good for TC brands. 
Uli understand well that premium brands are different and he does good job to move MG into professional av. And if you dont like buy other brand.. simple.
When Yamaha bought Nexo the brand was very popular but they did not invest... now Nexo has lost to l'acoustic and d&b etc.
