Great for competition seeing a company buy up another in the same industry. This happens too often these days.

Be grateful the buyer is locally owned, most sales these days seem to be overseas conglomerates. :(

More likely to be acquired by an overseas conglomerate once it grows intro a monopolistic monster.
