I agree. In oder to avoid the rejection. They designed a perfect game. They may get rejceted since originally they don't want to do this way. If all company can do this modification, than antitust law has no use. People can void it legally. .
If it can not now be shown by the DOJ that a monopoly, duopoly or oligopoly would be formed by the advancement of this deal than they have no choice but to abandon the suite and let the deal proceed. Other than for those shorting this is a WIN WIN WIN situation.
