具Transworld Business报道，最近有消息称Nike和VF(旗下品牌包括Vans, Lee等)都对收购Quiksilver很有兴趣。真的假的啊，这可是大买卖。具体情况还是看看原文吧。
A February 11 report on Bloomberg.com further explores speculation that Nike and VF Corp are interested in acquiring Quiksilver. An apparel specilaist named Bob Copeland is attributed in the article, saying that “Nike Inc. and VF Corp. may try to buy sportswear maker Quiksilver Inc.”
Speculation of VF’s interest in Quiksilver was again fueled by VF Corp’s Q4 conference call on February 10.
“We are still interested in acquisitions,” Chief Executive Officer Eric Wiseman said during the call. “And we are fortunate to be in a position where we have a strong balance sheet and good business model that lets us keep active in that space.”
Wiseman added that outdoor, action sports, contemporary, and sportswear segments were “attractive.”
The article on Bloomberg also offers this statement in regards to rumors of Quiksilver selling DC Shoes:
“Quiksilver’s shares jumped as much as 72 percent on Jan. 26 after Women’s Wear Daily reported it may be acquired. The company, now trading at $1.59 a share, may fetch $1.50 a share to $3, Eric Tracy, an analyst with BB&T Capital Markets in Vienna, Virginia, wrote in a Jan. 27 report. If Quiksilver sells only its DC Shoes unit, for an estimated $530 million, it could reduce its $1.1 billion in debt, Tracy said.”
