Rumors have been flying again this winter that there has been some type of organizational purchase made within the team roping industry. Officially NONE of it involves World Series of Team Roping.
What started this rumor involves some internal business that has taken place inside Equibrand/ USTRC. I have mentioned historically that Equibrand/USTRC was owned by a private investment firm and firms like these typically have shorter term interests in businesses than what has occurred . Nevertheless, this investment group has owned Equibrand/USTRC for 12 years. No doubt some of the investors were getting itchy feet.In a nutshell , the investment firm, along with members of management, have bought out the interest of all the investors that wanted out of Equibrand/USTRC.
Again, this does not involve World Series, but for those of you that play with USTRC it should be good news as the remaining investors should have a different perspective about running the business in the long term.
