Could this be the company Best Buy needs? Just think if they could take the stores and convert some of them to have a much bigger appliance area. Best Buy purchased Geek Squad and grew it. Best Buy is certain to slowly die unless they change. Appliances are harder to buy online and have shipped which is why Best Buy will fail. Plus the headquarters of the two companies is maybe 10 miles apart. By buying arci they could innovate the appliance recycling of the big box companies and have a marketing competitive advantage over every other company. Do they need arci to expand the appliance sales, nope but for less than $100M they would get all the history and untha tech which is why they could win. I use to work at bby in finance. I quit about 10 years ago about when Jim (cfo) joined bby and I started my own companies. I would say this is very unlikely to happen but it wouldn't surprise me at all. Have a nice day.
