    giroux105: Perhaps your perspective is short-sighted. The issues are very complex.

    If I were a Burger King holder I would be desperate for this deal to go. It is a life saver for BK. As a THI holder, I invested on the basis that the Canadian model, executive, managers, and staff were and are more competitive. Since THI got away from Wendy's the execution has been very good and solid. The only real complainer is some hedge fund guy that wants his money NOW.

    The real question is does the tie up with BK afford an advantage for both concepts. I am not sure. One might consider a look at Darden and the disaster that they made out of Red Lobster. Now on its own it is showoing new life and moving to recature its market. BK in the US is a disaster in spite of its size. In Cananda BK is better (a different company, different structural appraoch to the busienss, etc.). THI was burned early in its apprach into the US. However, they leaned and adapted. Going forward I think the THI concept is a viable business that knows how to execute and adapt. I think that THI as an organization is focused on long term sustainable growth and profitability.
