Web poll: Will ATD be sold? Weigh in

Posted on May 16, 2014

With the news TPG Capital LP was considering the sale of American Tire Distributors Holdings Inc. through an initial public offering (IPO) comes a lot of speculation.

Why does the private equity firm want to sell? Does it have other options? What will happen if ATD goes public?

So far, the companies have remained relatively mum on the subject. And why not? Private equity firms are almost always in the market for attractive investments they can turn around and sell in three to five years.

ATD, however, touches almost all of us in some way. Its potential sale is not just big, it's Godzilla-big.

Here's your chance to weigh in on the topic. Check out our latest Web Poll question, which is located on the right-hand side of the Modern Tire Dealer home page under "Web Poll" (after you scroll down a little). You have six choices from which to choose.
