In a surprising twist to the news widely reported yesterday, turns out Aerobie, Inc. is still owned by founder Alan Adler. According to Alex Tennant, the General Manager of Aerobie, Inc. who spoke with us exclusively, the Toronto-based toy company Spin Master did not acquire the Palo Alto flying disc and coffee brand after all, but only certain assets related to the outdoor sports arm of Aerobie, Inc.
From an email this morning, Tennant writes:
For AeroPress coffee fans this might come as a relief, as with all the news circulating yesterday there was nary a mention of the fate of the beloved brewer. We are following this story closely and will update you all as it unfolds.
Aerobie is an advertising partner on Sprudge.com.
