Bass Pro Shopping For Cabela’s

Of course, we’ve likely all heard this before.  Things are starting to go into overdrive now.

According to Reuters, “The move gives Bass Pro the equity financing necessary to pursue Cabela’s and makes such a deal more likely, given the potential cost savings and synergies a combination of the two U.S. hunting and fishing retailers would bring.”

Bass Pro and Cabela’s are generally regarded as the number one and number two big box outdoor retailers in North America. Together they would form a giant worth upwards of $7 billion.

But Bass Pro is not alone in its interest in Cabela’s. Other buyout firms are also interested, and Cabela’s has been working with Guggenheim Securities LLC (an investment bank) to find a buyer since last fall. That effort was precipitated by pressure from Elliott Management Corp. (an activist hedge fund). Cabela’s has also considered selling its beleaguered credit card business separately. Although that branch of the operation has suffered seven-figure fines for improprieties in recent years, it may constitute a third of the company’s overall value.
