Word on the street says that Rand McNally recently sold to a a private-equity firm, Patriarch Partners. Anyone seen a press release yet?

Well, it was sold in 1997 to an investment group called AEA Investors. There have been rumors for years that AEA wanted to sell it. Nothing on chicagobusiness.com today, though.

Here it is in the news: http://www.chicagobu...ews.pl?id=27682
The story seems more interested in the sale of its building than the sale of the company.

Attached here is a Press Release of a more internal nature. They sure seem to want to keep a low profile on this transfer of ownership.
