Not sure what the WSJ article is trying to say or what you are trying to infer. That only 80% of the companies Bain invested in didn’t fail? That it would have made more money if it hadn’t invested in investments that lost money? That some companies that Bain invested in eventually failed, sometimes long after Bain was involved?

The phraseology suggests some sort of scandal. Care to expand on what that might be?
