yup. Jarden Corp, Pure Fishing's parent company was bought. Apparently Jarden and Rubbermaid have many products in the home goods category. Be interesting to see what happens to fishing in this new mega corporation

They probably will be able to produce lures cheaper, not sure if we will see a difference though.

I worked for Gott Coolers when Rubbermaid bought them in the late 80s. They really messed that company up.

Sadly, I'd venture to say this doesn't bode well for Pure Fishing. In the big-biz cut-throat world of today, Newell was shutting down a competitor by assimilation. I'm betting that the Outdoor Solutions arm will be nothing more than a nuisance to them - taking up valuable capital and molding capacity.

I seriously doubt that they would just can neglect such valuable brands, despite their relative size to the overall corporation. Newell will likely start marketing Pure Fishing for sale to industry leaders after the merger is finalized. Heck their phone could already be ringing.

this is what I foresee... Sell the out door arm for and get an almost immediate return on the investment.

No one panicked when Jarden bought Pure Fishing.

Go to Jarden.com then to the Outdoor Solutions tab. You will be surprised how many outdoor activity brands they own.

there had to be synergies across the board or they would not take risk of the investment. Otherwise private equity would have bought it and split it all up to make a quick return,(imo)
