Having been through too many mergers in the past (but not knowing anything about the terms they were discussing), my unqualified opinion is that it's probably for the better.
Usually a consolidation follows a merger and people get hurt. To say nothing about relocation of activities, comingling of assets and compromises to design integrity.
The Bayliner/Sea Ray/Brunswick example comes to mind.
Hopefully, the folks at WRV will not be adverseley effected by this and WRV as a company will continue it's progress.
