To all of our friends wherever you are and whatever you celebrate we send our wishes for all kinds of happiness for this season and the year to come!
2018 has been filled with great people and friends which add up to the best year ever!
A recent communication from Wilson Sports makes it official that Anta Sports is buying Amer Sports, the owner of Wilson Sports, for a tidy sum of $5.2 billion! This includes, I imagine, the entirety of Wilson Sports products including tennis racquets…which we care about!
Anta Sports is a Chinese company that is not new to the business, so I would expect that the great people at Wilson we deal with will not change. It is reported that Anta will operate Amer Sports independently from Anta with a separate board of directors.
You may be saying to yourself right now…”well here goes another US company to foreign ownership!” However, Wilson was acquired by Finn-Amer (a Finnish company) in 1989 I believe.
Wilson has produced some of the best selling tennis racquets of recent years so I would not expect Anta to change much, if anything!
