A major change is about to happen. Lego's owner, Blackstone and the Canadian pension fund want to take the company private. Merlin is the second largest themepark company based on attendance. The sale price it s 6.1 billion. This is still below what the Market Cap was 2 years ago. So it will be interesting to see if their are other offers for the company. However half the company is already owned by the family of Kirk Kristiansen, owner of Lego, so it would take a significant increase in price for someone else to win but with the new Legoland opening in New York, the company should be worth much more.
