It's still struggling.
In New Japan's case, they've upped their production value since Yukes sold them to Bushiroad. But as of 2011 they were still losing money almost every quarter (not a lot of money, but they were in the red). We can't know if they are turning a profit with Bushiroad because they aren't a public company, but there's no doubt they are investing in New Japan's image.
