what will happen to all the employee's at HD when it is sold? Scary... HD has acquired several top employees over the last couple of months. Were they hired only to sell the company and then regroup. Any thoughts?

Well how do you think the people feel who worked for some little company which was bought by Century which was bought by Hughes which was bought by HD Supply? And now HDS is on the block!
Circumstances are unpredictable at this point, but one thing is certain....when private investors do a leveraged buy out, they are not in it for the long haul. They need to see returns right away, and the usual technique to accomplish that is " slash and burn", so hold on to your hat!
