I think they also own Alien Workshop (skate company) now, too. I remember posting something about that awhile ago, but I'm too lazy to use the search option right now.

I don't know their overall company value, but in 2008 the sporting goods industry was worth $487 million dollars. Burton has been estimated to own between 40 and 70% of that whole industry depending on the specific area. When it comes to snowboarding, they own well over half the market.

I think the main problem with Burton is that they are mainstream. Yet snowboarding companies like Rome play off snowboarding as fighting against the mainstream.

Ok, so if snowboarders are not mainstream and Burton is, why do more than half of snowboarders own Burton products?

If it is a good product, who cares if it is made by a guy in his mom's garage who smokes pot and listens to Mastadon or by a bunch of businessmen running a company as prolific as McDonald's?
