What do I do when my owner is selling the company I work for?

I work for a private company (35 employees) and my company has been for sale for quite some time. Frankly, the best thing that could happen to the company is that it sells. My current owner is very old and is holding the company back with his refusal to invest much needed capital into the company. That said, we entered a due diligence period nearly 2 1/2 months ago and if it closes, it will be in the next month. My concern is this: I just found out through some very basic Google searching that the buyer is a holding company....what does that mean? They are going to buy us and sell us as quickly as possible for a profit? Should I run as fast as I can???

I have successfully established myself as very valuable to the company as 1 of only 2 sales people. I have had great success in growing organic business and bringing in new business, so I am not worried about keeping a position if we sell. I just fear for the life of the company if we get into a cycle of M and A.....Help?!?!?!?!
