The management of Office Depot have always put themselves first. I have bought and sold shares of this company many times in the past, and I am happy to say that I came out ahead. The very idea that this merger would be approved was ludicrous to begin with. Offfice Depot was still working on the buy out of OfficeMax and had a ways to go with that. The ONLY reason this whole stupid idea was put forth was because Jeffery Smith bullied about and got his way again. HE didn't give a squat about the merger itself as he has more than made his money back by buying and selling the stock of both companies. Office Depot ruined the good company that was OfficeMax, and I guarantee you that Staples is a hell of a lot better off without this albatross. Office Depot is a toxic company. Always has been, always will be.
