During the First years of the KKR Reign the equity for the company fell from 24% to 16% from 1998 through 1994. We think that if Ross Johnson was able to take over the company for the original offer of 75 dollars a share things would have turned out a lot better for Nabisco because they shouldn’t have had to sell of as many assets or shed as much of the labor Force as KKR did when they bought the
Systemax signed the agreement for $6.5 million which is an initial offer for the bankrupt company’s assets. There were 567 Circuit City stores nationwide, at that time it was the second largest electronics retailer store in the United State. The store first closes 155 of its location when they first filed bankruptcy in November 2008 with the intention to continue operate.

Were they losing money because it took years to fulfill requests by customers for more health-conscience and organics products? Had those customers already found an alternative store that did provide the requested goods and in turn moved their business?
