I'm not sure if these are the same "Western Acquisitions" that are under BH or not.  I'm looking at the slides in here:
http://yahoo.brand.edgar-online.com/displayfilinginfo.aspx?FilingID=6752105-931-5320&type=sect&TabIndex=2&companyid=29349&ppu=%252fdefault.aspx%253fcompanyid%253d29349

And the subs are called "Western Investments, Inc" not "Western Acquisition Corp" and "Western Acquisitions LP" not "Western Acquisition Holdings, Inc".

This may be a different company. Anyone know?

A couple of those 'Western' entities were created in the past two months.  One 2/23/10 if I remember correctly.

I don't have any special knowledge, but it seems clear it's not a BH sub... the acquisition is valued at more than BH's market cap and is being paid in cash.  I don't think Sardar is going to lever himself up like that and I don't think a sub could do it.
