    Cat In The Cap

    There will always be speculation that the Cap will eventually need a big industrial sponsor in order to fully leverage the investments made so far in its entity. Big names such as GE and others make for good rumors; however the true suitor will come with a history; such as Caterpillar who back in 1981, stuck its toe in the turbine waters with Turbomach only to find that a lack of understanding and foresight was too unsettling; and without that market life preserver and unclear visibility, decided to step back out in 1985 by selling to Sunstrand Industries. Definitely a lesson learned because in 1998 Cat bought Perkins Engine; a company with a distribution network and well within Cat's comfort zone of undersatanding.Cat needed smaller and faster diesel engines to complete its horsepower application range. Cat knows that range can now take on a third dimension without having the risk of power plants falling out of the sky. The icing of this cake; it that the deal comes with a significant tax carry forward and four institutional guys controlling over 20% who wouldn't mind owning a little......................... Cat.
