  • Clayton, Dubilier, and Rice needs to do something about Brand Energy, one of the companies it owns. Their bonds have been downgraded deep into junk territory. They need to change the management totally. Harsco has a partnership with Brand Energy.

    They need to get rid of the CEO and the ex-GE people he brought in. The Houston area is especially bad and the executives there should be removed immediately. The latest Moody’s report said the only thing good about the company is that it can still borrow money. That’s pathetic. That shows how horrible the CEO and his ex-GE friends have been. Brand Energy may be the biggest joke in private equity today. Clayton, Dubilier, and Rice needs to stop letting the CEO of Brand get away with his nepotism and incompetence.
