    buyout in the cards

    A private equity firm (Thomas Lee and parners)just purchased the retail Burger chain "CKR" for $600 million and the assumption of $300 million in debt, so "M&A" activity is starting to surface once again. PBY would be a perfect acquisition candidate for a private equity play as they could monetize the real estate, put lipstick on PBY and resell it again at a substantial profit by spliting it into two different companies.

    • Before anyone with any sense would be interested trying to re-package this firm, ALL TOP MANAGEMENT would have to suffer simultaneous fatal heart attacks, with no chance they appoint cronies of their same ilk into the vacant positions.

      Years of dividend payout from an insufficient earnings base prove these managers are total idiots.
