Did some quick research and found something of interest. Apparently Dominos Pizza was sold to Bain Capital in 1998 but only went public in 2004. "Bain
Capital today manages approximately $65 billion in assets
, and its strategies include private equity, venture capital, public equity,
high-yield assets and mezzanine capital funds."
For those that don't click links, heres an interesting list of recent notable investments by Bain Capital (I'll only point out what seems to stick out
2009, Jun – Bain Capital announces a deal to acquire a 16% stake in Chinese electronics manufacturer GOME Electrical Appliances for $300 million.
2007, Sep – Joins with the Chinese networking company Huawei Technologies in an attempt to acquire 3Com for $2.2 billion in cash
However, they were unable to structure the deal to satisfy constraints set by Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). In March
2008, Bain and Huawei abandoned the transaction.
"The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS, commonly pronounced "sifius") is an inter-agency committee of the United States
Government that reviews the national security implications of foreign investments in U.S. companies or operations." Seems odd to me that Henry Paulson
would deem this kind of deal a threat to national security
2003, Aug – Purchases Bombardier Inc.'s recreational products division , along with the Bombardier family and the Caisse de dépôt et de placement
du Québec, and created Bombardier Recreational Products or BRP. Bain Capital took a 50% interest in the new company.
More questions. Why would Dominos need a 12 million bailout when its owned by a company that can pay a couple bil in cash?
