Former Market Basket CEO Arthur T Demoulas

Has Offered to Buy Out his Cousin's Share of this New England Grocery Store Chain. Previously and Previouslier



Arthur T. Demoulas on Wednesday said he will make an offer to buy the Market Basket supermarket chain, seeking to regain control of the fractured company and end the decades-long family feud that has exploded into an extraordinary public spectacle this month.

Demoulas said in a statement that he and his side of the family will try to buy the 50.5 percent of Market Basket now controlled by opposing relatives who supported his firing last month as president of the company.

“We believe that our offer is a very full and fair one and should meet or exceed a seller’s expectations of the value of the company,” the statement said. “We care deeply about Market Basket and all of our associates and we want to work together to return the company to its successful model for serving our loyal customers. Those who received the offer need to consider the matter, so we are not in a position to comment further at this time.”

The value of Demoulas’s offer was not disclosed. But the value of the entire private company was estimated at $3 billion to $3.5 billion by Kevin Griffin, publisher of The Griffin Report of Food Marketing.

It was not immediately clear whether the offer was being seriously entertained by family shareholders who have battled with Demoulas for control of the company since the early 1990s. Those shareholders could not be reached for comment Wednesday evening.

Salvo 12" Shotgun Supressor

via FB Friend Dan
First Ever Commercially Available Shotgun Suppressor.



For us gun nuts, there is no extent to which we wouldn’t go in the pursuit of happiness, and dang it, as American’s, we’re more than entitled to it. Recently announced is the first ever commercially available shotgun suppressor and gun owners are chomping at the bit to get their hands on one.

SilencerCo has come forward to proudly declare their creation of the Salvo 12 – “a modular, non-concentric suppressor that can be lengthened or shortened depending on the user’s needs,” according to Guns.com.

Furthermore, the Chief Executive Officer for SilencerCo, Joshua Waldron explains, “The Salvo 12 represents a revolution in silencers, not just an evolution. There is a huge installed base of shotgun hunters and shooters that has been waiting for a product like this for a long time, and we are proud to deliver it.”

For those of us who enjoy heading down to the range to pop off a few rounds, there are little better leisure activities in the world, but with the detrimental effects the noise of the blast has – well, I think we could all use something a bit quieter given the effects of long term exposure. All this with a cool price at just $1,400 a pop, how many do you think you’ll be picking up?
