5.5 billion all cash deal-company will be taken private. Probably means even higher prices.

Schucks. I prefer Cabelas and I don't see this a positive for consumers, but it makes little difference in the big picture.

BP intends to take Cabela's private. the sale was pressured by an activist investor group. CAB is one of my longest held stocks. sorry to see that go and the stores turning into the one I like less. maybe there will be a good sale on branded gear.

Agree to disagree new guy. When you have a customer base that can be somewhat polarized, loyal to BPS and not Cabela's and vice versa, I don't think they'd just extinguish a brand that has been around since 1961. Even if they did, convergence in 1.5-2 years would be overly optimistic and costly.

In this case time will tell. It is a polarized loyalty for sure. managing two brands is a bigger task. Bps will now be an effective monopoly since gander mtn is a non issue and no others have as much presence on a walk-in level.

As someone with lots of experience in corporate transactions, companies commonly require their brand/name stay in tact as condition of the purchase. Its usually bargained for during the negotiation process. Who knows what happened here.
