Hmmm... sounds like my suspicion was correct. Rumor - Not fact.
By the way, my experience (from both sides of the table) is that D&B does not have verify or accurate information on private companies, so running a D&B is going to tell you exactly what the owner of that company wants to claim. If I report 10M in sales, that's what they record. If I tell them 30 people, that's what they report. Perhaps there is a point where they ask for proof, but never in my 15 years reporting to them. You might find it more informative to check the court records to see if there are any judgements agains B&K for non-payment, etc., but I doubt you will find any.
I have called B&K a few times recently (since that "insolvency" post). I get no indication that anything has changed there. In fact the technicians are up front and available. My conversation, which I will not post (as to not add more "un-official" gossip) led me to believe B&K will be around and is continuing to ship product, including filling some "backlogs" in amplifiers.
While B&K would not make it in the computer world, where pre-announcements are so far fetched and rarely met - I'll be patient and hope that they are acting responsibly as a company and to their customers. To me, that means generating revenues where revenues are to be made being #1 priority (to stay alive) and working towards improvements and upgrades that have been promised as the #2 priority.
I do agree it would be nice to hear something regarding status from them, even if it's just a simple update on progress without a promise of delivery date. But, that has never been their mode of operation.....
