In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
The proposed Staples/Essendant merger is tainted and should be stopped immediately. This merger has been formulated by corporate raiders for the purposes of looting the company. In addition, the lead counsel who negotiated the merger previously head the FTC's mergers division. This is a clear conflict of interest and itself should cause the FTC to disapprove it.
