Default Re: Ludwig's parent company sold

Without knowing the financial status of Ludwig it is hard to say exactly what will happen.
I can't see Ludwig as being a financial asset though.
The prize that Kohlberg wanted was definitely Steinway.
Ludwig is just a knick knack that was in the house that they bought.
The snare drum division is the profit center for Ludwig.
The other divisions may be sold off.
Sounds kinda' dark there, Bob. We'll just have to wait and see what happens. Be brave, little toasters ;)
