Smith & Wesson acquires Crimson Trace

Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation announced plans Monday to buy leading laser sight company Crimson Trace for $95 million.

The gun maker signed a definitive agreement to acquire the 22-year-old company with cash on hand. Smith & Wesson’s president and chief executive officer, James Debney, said Crimson Trace will serve as the gun maker’s new electro-optics division and continue to operate out of a 50,000 square foot facility in Wilsonville, Oregon.

Good move for S&W without leverage. The accounts will be able to write off the purchase as capital expenditure over the next decade. S&W gets a foothold in the laser market and can profit from sales and development of products for other brands as well as it's own.

I specifically remember starting this thread in the optics section.

How did it end up in events?
