A private equity company recently bought Hitachi power tools from the parent company and won't be able to offer power tools under the Hitachi name anymore, so who knows what the future of the company will actually be?

Damn did not know this...

"According to several sources, including the official January 13th announcement, some folks at Metabo and hnn.biz, KKR has an agreement to continue using the Hitachi brand name for power tools for a given amount of time. From the announcement:
…upon completion of the Tender Offer, the Company will cease to be a subsidiary of Hitachi and any capital relations between the Company and Hitachi will cease. However, in order to continue the smooth operation Company's business, a transition services agreement has been reached between Hitachi and the Company regarding the provision of IT and systems services and use of the Hitachi brand.
The real question is what will become of the Hitachi brand name on their power tools? Will it roll into the existing (but not very well-known) Metabo brand? Will they use that time to co-brand a transitionary brand name? We're not sure, but we're anxious to find out. Reaching out to KKR Asia Limited, we were told that "Given where KKR and Hitachi Koki are in the early partnership days, [they] aren't commenting on the brand name." Fair enough. The truth may be that those decisions simply may not have yet been made."
