 Feb 18 - OfficeMax & Office Depot In talks to merge
topic by Skratch - 02-18-2013, 01:44 PM



OfficeMax Inc. OMX -1.29% and Office Depot Inc. ODP +2.00% are in advanced talks to merge, people familiar with the matter said, as the retailers of pens, paper and desks try to f!ght off tougher competition from rivals like Staples Inc. SPLS +0.54% and Amazon.com Inc. AMZN -1.54%

The deal is expected to be stock-for-stock, though precise terms couldn't be learned, including what percentage of the merged group shareholders of each company would own. The deal isn't yet done, and talks could still fall apart. But an announcement could come as early as this week, the people said.

A deal would combine two companies that have been hammered in recent years by weak economic conditions, falling sales and rising online competition. Office Depot's market value is just $1.3 billion, and OfficeMax's is about $933 million.

lol @ OfficeMax
this doesnt have sh*t to do with the thread, but I worked there for a few years during undergrad
sh*t was mad fun
and they had this little program that let you get discounts for bringing in ink cartirdges
me and my co-workers took advantage of that sh*t and ended up getting hundreds of dollars in "free" sh*t (office supplies, routers, computer software, furniture, speakers)
we're the reason that they had to get rid of that program. we fu*ked it up for everyone nationwide

i worked there, sh*t was wack as fu*k, quit in 1 month, i think it was the one i was at though and the managers, i was the only n*gga there and managers were on my d!ck heavy and everyday i had to stock shelves while helping customers, i was slow af too one day this bi*ch a.ss manager gonna tell me to put all the ink in the display thing and order it, then got nerve to tell me to hurry up nsh*t, like n*gga this is 100+ ink cartigredges, if u thinki u can do a better job then u do that sh*t, that was my first real job too
