Big Tech Mergers Always Fail

from the good-luck-HPaq dept

Red Herring takes a look at the HPaq merger and points out that large technology mergers always fail. They can’t come up with a single big technology merger that was a success. The only ones that seem to succeed are when a large company swallows a much smaller one. Of course, they also point out that investors usually initially cheer larger mergers – but in the case of HPaq, almost everyone immediately came out against it (so maybe it will succeed just for that reason…).
