Remember, all of this is about getting the price of the stock to rise. Why do you think they did all those stock buybacks? The Thomson family demands it and that’s how the executives cash out. That’s all that matters. Buy, sell, lay-off...whatever. People who achieve that level of power and influence didn’t get there because they were nice. Remember these guys are corporate executives, not entrepreneurs. They’ve strived all their lives to get to this position and nothing will stop them from doing whatever they have to in order to get what they have convinced themselves they deserve. If you think the London exchange acquisition of F&R just dropped out of the sky and Jimmy wasn’t behind the scenes orchestrating it, you are naive. It will make TR’s stock rise. The amount of money that changes hands isn’t what they really care about. TR will divest their remaining 45% and use the money to buy back more stock. That drives up the share price so Jimmy and cronies can leave worth hundreds of millions of dollars. That’s the reality of big business in America.
