I think you are jumping to conclusion here.
It is more likely that they spend the time in the past (they are around 
for quite a while) to build their specific Basic, Pascal and C compiler 
front end and just have to replace the actual code generator for each 
architecture they support.
Just because a company offers compilers for various languages, with a 
common IDE, doesn't mean that those compilers are "closely related".
Just take Borland of old, Turbo Pascal, Turbo C, Turbo Basic, Turbo 
Prolog, they all used a very similar IDE but the actual compiler had all 
completely different origins...
