Mega Brands Inc., Canada’s global player in the toy market, is being bought by U.S. giant Mattel Inc. in a $460-million (U.S.) deal.

The transaction values Montreal-based Mega Brands at $17.75 per share – a premium of 32 per cent to the 30-day average stock price of Mega Brands as of Feb. 26 – and includes the assumption of the company’s debt.

:thumbs down:another head office down. Maybe the article suggests that the head office will remain, but we know long term that won't be the case.

 

This comes back to the central issue of being economically prosperous. This is the real issue here affecting our province.

 

non, tout le Canada perd des sièges sociaux. Le fait que Mega Brands soit à Montréal ne change rien. On parle ici d'un global player, ses ventes ne sont pas liées à Mtl ou au Qc.

 

''Mega Brands is the world’s second biggest maker of construction building sets,...''

Quand Green Mountain a acheté Van Houtte, on aurait pu penser que c'est ce qui allait arrivé. Mais c'est tout le contraire qui s'est passé. La situation de la compagnie à Montréal n'a jamais été aussi bonne.

 

Le siège social reste à Montréal, ainsi que l'expertise. En plus la compagnie va maintenant avoir le soutient de Mattel, un géant. Personnellement, je ne pense pas que c'est une mauvaise nouvelle. Je suis plutôt neutre. C'est loin d'être la première compagnie qui aura un siège au Canada mais qui est de propriété Américaine.

Le Qc inc grossit tranquillement. En fin 2013, il était de 300 milliards en bourse. Il y a des jeunes entrepreneurs qui vont monter. Au Qc on mise beaucoup sur le développement local avant d'aller à l'international. La nouvelle génération, la y et x , est plus ouverte au monde. J'ai confiance aux prochains 15 ans.

We were all happy to see couche-tard buying Statoil Fuel and Retail or CGI buying Logica and in both cases, consolidating or creating jobs here in Montreal at the Head Office. This time, it's a US company buying one of ours.

 

Even Mega Brands bought companies in the US (Rose Art) and that helped the company and head office here in Montreal.

 

My points is, it goes both ways, we buy outside the country and we get bought by outside the country

My point who is the next great Quebec company to hire high skilled workers when the Montreal head office of mega brands slowly declines?

 

So you are supporting Marois style protectionism?

 

This is international economics my friend like it or not.

 

You probably don't watch the stock market much but Québec is beating ROC hands down in the past 18 months. And mostly because of Qc companies BUYING foreign companies and growing. Genivar, Couche Tard, CGI, Agropur, Saputo...

 

You really see what you want to see!

«Les installations montréalaises sont au coeur de la transaction, en raison de leur expertise dans les jeux de construction», a soutenu Bryan G. Stockton, président et chef de la direction de Mattel. C'est une des raisons pour lesquelles nous achetons l'entreprise. Nous planifions de continuer d'y investir et n'avons aucun dessein de les fermer», a-t-il ajouté.
