What Next For Mr Quinn

Wonder what Mr Quinn will do now that he has sold Darrell Lea?

$200 million in cash, should buy some nice racing cars to play with.

Good on him for keeping an iconic brand going.

His early business ventures weren't successful, But it has made him who he is today.

VIP Pet Foods sold for $410m.

After investing $50m into Darrell Lea, he has certainly turned that business around.

Good on Tony and now with Supercars wanting to buy AUS GT, he is sitting very comfortable.

The thing about AusGT is that he needs to dig it out of the rut it's currently in.

It's certainly not as healthy as it was in previous years.

Could this see Klark return to racing? He stepped away from racing to run Darrell Lea.

Interestingly from the article, VIP Petfoods was onsold from Quadrant for $1 billion. Thatís a fairly decent increase from its purchase price.

But this includeds other acquisitions that Quadrant has made over that time as well in which the Quinn family has profited from as well.

The Quinn family still own shareholdings in Darrell Lea as well.

IMHO,
it'd be hard to ignore the role of motorsport promo of the revitalised Darrell Lea product which augurs well for the sport going forward.
Bit of a twist in the negotiations with SuperCars.

Hers a link that seems to summarise the deal:

Mr French might be a good owner for that property
Move in the mining gear, dig down for a few hundred (thousand?) feet, and you might strike dirt

Have a read of his book - settling down for the quiet life is not in Quinns interest.

I wish he would buy Eastern creek, bring in the bulldozers, get rid of Corporate Hill, completely remodel the place to be more Motorsport and fan friendly

Or, from your statement remove "get rid of Corporate Hill", and change "Eastern Creek" for Oran Park and/or Amaroo

Nah...despite the great racing/entertainment and wonderful memories I have from both those tracks...they were both a little "mickey mouse"...

Don't mean Tilke-a-fy the place but it is a great natural amphitheatre that should be utilised a lot better...
