Colt Buys LWRC for $60 Million

Posted on 2/23/2014 by with 0 comments

Colt Holdings is buying LWRC and MATech for $60 million. This will be added to Colt’s other companies, Colt Canada (formerly Diemco), Colt Defense, and Colt Manufacturing.

Meanwhile F&D Defense is suing LWRC for 12.4 million, based on the internal operating design belonging to F&D. On hearing the news of Colt’s purchase, I initially asked “why?” Now I’m wondering if LWRC doesn’t want to deal with a lawsuit headache.
