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.

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.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
