I'm not sure what you are referring to. My comment re. Mycroft concerned itself with Mycroft's proclaimations to buy KO (a la his famous "back up the truck" remark).
I'm not sure what you refer to regarding acquisitions. However, on this topic, I do note that if you can't grow from organic management, why not intelligently purchase the growth? In both cases, KO has utterly failed for a decade + now.
And all during this time, shareholders have been fleeced by overpaying management.
