In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
This merger is a form of monopoly that is detrimental to consumers and to our economy as a whole. Private investors should not be able to pool their money to buy companies when their intention is self enrichment rather than running a competitive business. This practice is unfair and deceptive. Please do not allow Staples to be sacrificed to private interests when the company provides needed services, jobs, and profits to shareholders.
