Over the past few years, La Poche Bleue has expanded. Maxim Lapierre and Guillaume Latendresse’s project, which was launched during the pandemic, has become larger than life.
The base price of the sale is $2.25 million, but the deal could go as high as $8.8 million. So it’s a very big deal between the guys at La Poche Bleue and Playmaker Capital Inc.
It’s ironic that a project designed to promote Quebec should be sold to Ontario interests, but that’s not the main point. The key point is that the people behind the project (Latendresse, Lapierre and general manager Louis-Philippe Dorais) will remain in place.
I imagine a lot of people will weep since making money in Quebec is a bit of a taboo, but that’s the point of businesses: to make money from the core project.
La Poche Bleue will not be returning to lunchtime with Stéphane Gonzalez. Gonzalez is taking over at BPM Sports, and the show will no longer be on the air.
This is not a disaster for LPB – quite the contrary.
