Discussion: Could Lego be subject to a takeover?
Don't worry, nothing out there to suggest this could actually so hopefully the title didn't scare anyone.
Just thinking out loud, but what do you think are the chances of a major buy out of Thr Lego Group ... I'm thinking by Disney in particular?
Let's face it, a significant chunk of Lego's revenue goes straight to Disney now anyway, and with Lego's foray into media , and the branded parks (albeit Lego only have a partial stake in them) they're soon going to be treading firmly on each others toes - and we all know Disney dislikes competition.
Whilst Lego is now the biggest toy manufacture in the world, it's still small fry compared to the conglomerate that is Disney.
On the other hand, if there is one thing Disney likes more than making money, it's other companies making money for them. (Coming from someone fairly familiar with how Disney's licencing works), so they may well be happy for it to continue down this road ... But I see an end point - not in the next couple of years, but beyond that? Anyone's guess I reckon. (Unless there's something about how the company is structured that simply prevents it from being possible?)
Just thought I'd try and get some thoughts on the matter!
