Well it's a second generation business now. Probably no third generation to take over after and that's a big ole check to cash out now. Plus the Sandvik group is enormous and takes good care of their people from what I've seen, so the employees who stick around should also be in good shape.
IMO ever since Megan took over, development of Mastercam has been driven by the marketing department, valuing appearance over productivity. Hopefully with a machining based group in charge they can get back to their roots of being productivity oriented.
"One thing have my ear to the ground on is CNC Software...now they always pride themselves on being a family owned business through and through. I wonder if a $300 million offer by someone like Sandvik would change their tune. I would bet that they have been approached by multiple companies for a buyout. Either the number isn't high enough or they really are committed to the family model."
