Salomon S.A. of Annecy has sold "controlling interest" to adidas, which makes adidas the corporate parent of Taylor Made Golf, according to the SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE. Salomon, which makes ski equipment and bicycle components "among other things," has owned Taylor Made since 1984. The "rumored transaction price" for the deal was $1.5B, although that number was "not confirmed." Taylor Made Senior Marketing Manager Brian Fortini: "We are excited about it. It brings resources to us that permit us to pursue a number of strategic growth initiatives" (UNION-TRIBUNE, 9/16).
