A lot of the news is just smoke and mirrors until it actually happens. Only then will the true value come out. Remember the Mexico unit brings in profit that keeps ODP afloat so saling it is a double edge sword. So you get rid of the Mexico unit in hopes Office Max can bring in more value? This is one massive consolidation which is necessary for the industry to survive but in the end investors may be left out in the cold. Either Starboard will point the company in the right direction or rip it apart in the process.
