The author reflects on the implication of a possible Wyndeham buyout for the printing industry. He argues that there had been rumours of the imminent demise of Wyndeham since the Icelandic banking crisis broke in September 2008. He claims that the change of ownership comes as a no surprise as it has been well documented that Polestar was a potential buyer.
