I don't believe so.

here is a response from someone at Nature Vision:

“Despite any rumors to the contrary, Nature Vision remains in a very solid position as we approach 2009. While it is true that our CFO recently resigned to relocate due to a family health issue, we are close to hiring a new CFO, having received hundreds of applications.”

That is good to hear thank you. It's nice to see a company of this caliber to be based in Minnesota. Minnesota pride I guess.

IF you think about it, they just bought out Castiac soft plastics, and MarCum... I doubt they are in financial troubles.

I would tend to agree with ya Dietz, great time to be a buyer to position yourself for future growth.

I can confirm, that Nature Vision is fine. The sale of the other facility was of an empty building in the Twin Cities from the previous Merger/Sale. And Rick mentioned about the CFO resigning.

A little off topic...but...have any of you used the nature vision tip-up alert system? Curious as to how well it works.

Style #: RFSS

Wireless Tip-Up Strike Sensor

The longest range, lowest cost RF tip-up alert made. Flag Alert incorporates a tilt switch (non-mercury) and clips on all tip-up flag arms. Clip the indicator alarm to your belt or jacket, and wait for the beep! Works up to 300 feet

Look to the newspaper industry for evidence of how this can be a catastrophic business strategy. That industry is full of companies who bought their competitors, and took on too much debt to be effective in marketplace.

There's a couple other things going on in the newspaper industry. One is rapidly increasing paper costs, the other is losing paying readers to TV and Internet.

I am also a little worried that they may have spent all their cash, and took on a fair amount of liability, for their recent M&A.

Does anyone know if they completed their mergers for cash, or took on debt to do so?

I hope not, as NV is a great company with great products. But you see the above scenario play out way too often.

Two total different animals there, I would not compare this type of business (Nature Vision) to a news paper or any paper source media outlet....

Now with the aquisition of Marcum, they have the underwater camera biz all locked in.

So I would say there future looks preaty darn solid to me.

    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
