What is Staples smoking? The news said they secured financing for $3 billion to by Corporate Express. First of all, that is not nearly enough money to buy Corporate Express. Second of all, they need to get apporval from the Dutch government to make the purchase for a hostile takeover. There is no way the Dutch government is going to allow the Americans to buy one of their own companies at a cheap price. Corporate Express has said they are not interested in selling the company many times. When is it going to go through Staples head that they don't want you guys. The Dutch are fighters and will continue to take market share away from Staples.
Quoting you ...
"Let's see if this idiot is willing to back his statements with holding CEXP stock for another 3 years since he believes so much in the Dutch"
Sure, you never do any bashing ...
And this is coming from some SPLS know-it-all who spends his time bashing competitors ODP and CXP on their yahoo message boards? Very professional. Get a room you two. Or at least post something of relevance.
"followed so closely"???? no, the inconsistencies just happen to be so glaring and can't help but notice. you just happen to be making so many comments, it's hard not to notice.
Perhaps you are the one hanging out in the smoke shops with the Dutch. Corporate Express would be fools NOT to take the offer. What else have the shareholders gotten in return from this poorly performing company?
You summed up your lack of intelligence with your last statement that CEXP is taking market share from Staples. Do some research about hostile takeovers, you have no idea what you are talking about. The deal will go through while you are smoking it up with the Dutch.
Gee what has CE done for shareholders? I bought the stock for $5 3 years ago and now it is at 12. That is like 130% return in three years. I consider that a pretty decent return and I don't want some poorly run company like Staples buying my stock. The are on a credit watch right now already and the fools are trying to get money for a deal that was already flatout rejected.
