These investment firms tend to do these deals as Leveraged Buyouts: borrow most of the money, and then find a way to use the cash flow from the acquisition to pay-off the loan. Often it results in a combination of price increases and reduced staffing at the acquired firm. In the case of GoDaddy, we can probably also expect to see additional offers to wade through on the way to the checkout page. We'll see. It might be time for those affected to review available registrar options.
