They are expected to pay $2.0B. There is no way to justify a 30% increase to $2.6B from $2.0B as you are alleging. Such an offer would immediately be a substantial loss for the combined company. No business would offer such a premium for a company with such little growth.
This trash has done NOTHING for employment. It has further ruined the field of recruiting and turned potential employees into bots. I've said it before, this thing is nothing more than an online Publisher's Clearing House disgusted as a "professional" networking site.
The day it closes will be a great day for any person looking for work and any business looking for employees.
