Brunswick Being Sold? - 09-03-2019, 09:44 AM

Brunswick Being Sold?
https://www.clubindustry.com/news/br...ss-490-million

KPS Funding https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/KPS_Capital_Partners

Maybe I’m coming to the party late?
This news is from May 2019.

It wouldn’t surprise me.
They sold off their bowling division years ago to an Italian company.
AMF also sold their bowling division to the same people.

Yes, old news. I think perhaps the next move is for KPS to sell the billiard business. Finding a buyer might be hard. But at the right price everything sells.

I can't say one way or another whether who the parent company of Brunswick Billiards is, or will be, matters.

Please explain why this story is important.

Yes, a little late. There have already been threads discussing the progress of Brunswick Billiards as it exited the Brunswick Corporation.

Here it was moved into a "Life Fitness" division, which I guess happened about the time that Brunswick exited bowling entirely: https://forums.azbilliards.com/showthread.php?t=392227

And here is a post discussing the sale of Life Fitness, including Brunswick Billiards, to a private equity firm, hidden inside a long thread:

The parent company sets budgets or at least approves them. The new owners may have a different opinion about the value of promotion. They may also look for a way to merge or sell with/to a Chinese company. They may give the billiard part of Life Fitness more autonomy.

Sales like this often bring large changes.

Not sure why he would have to explain his topic.... He is just a lil late to find out, I just did a couple of weeks ago.

I think it is maaayyyybbee because Brunswick has been making pool tables since 1845.

I am going to assume mostly because it has to do with pool and this forum is about pool.

Diamond should buy Brunswick, that way they'd have a decent table to sell finally.

I think I deciphered most of your message. Is "long" the second L?

And isn't bear baiting illegal in your state?

Translation : an easy table to play on. A group of us took a ride to a room that has nothing but Gold Crown 1's . The easiest way to describe their play was sloppy but I guess a lot of people prefer that.

I think the goal was to make a table that beginners would not find too hard. I have heard one room owner actually say that was why all of his pockets were large. One pocket is certainly a different game on 5 1/4 vs. 4 1/4.

I have a 10'er with ~ 4 1/8 to 4 1/4 corners.
