Anyone have a problem with one of the controlling shareholders of a motorsports company being the "Hospital of Ontario Pension Plan"?

Big changes in Ducati a-brewing?

Doesn't some Texas investment group own them now? Might as well let the cheeseheads have a go with it.

Long as they're not from Quebec they probably won't screw it up too bad eh?

TPG (Texas Pacific Group) sold them a a year or so back. Ducati is one of the few motorcycle companies growing in this market, though they struggle to remain profitable. Hopefully these guys (who are just making an offer for 30%) will keep up the R&D which has brought us some great bikes like the 848 recently. Or at least don't move them to China.
