Dave Taylor has this great post on the merger...specially this bit:
Gillette has approx. 29,400 employees. Again, assuming they're all of equal
worth, that means that the purchase price puts a value of $1.9 million per
person. D'ya think they'll even see 1% of that as a transition bonus?
While Tom Peters says:
Synergy?Batteries and toilet paper?
So I guess the answer is
What's the point?Because they can!
