tdgeek:MikeB4: My personal view is the receivers will struggle to sell the Group, they may be able to sell parts such as DSE New Zealand but I doubt that will happen.
I also feel there will be more of these collapses in this sector due to unsustainable pricing expectations by customers and competition pressure from off shore sellers.
Hard to say. On one hand we have the big boys, NH, Noels, etc. Then there is the Jaycar at the other end. DSE needs to reinvent itself, be a bit of a smaller big boy, and a Jaycar to a degree to offer some differentiation. I think they can and should keep the DSE name, its not attracting the same reaction as we are on here. It will be a bargaion for someone who can show a bit of vision. But like other industries, they can be a race to the bottom.
If you think of DSE being Australasia's version of Tandy/RadioShack, then I think we can clearly see where it is heading.
