    Too much control in too few hands means increasing prices. The Premium NGTLD's are already at new highs, and many do not drop to regular renewals afterwards. They cannot be selling many of them :( I don't understand the strategy.

    They making money by selling the whole business to another investors with deep pockets and that's the strategy. They knew someone will take the bait and believe in those unsustainable business model.:xf.rolleyes:

    Anyway, I would say the acquisition is a smart move, they try to take advantage of getting themselves into a 'too big to fail' position.
