Omg what a total sh1tshOw repukative has become...

Maybe if nyse buys hse, and they all sell lse, and then bloomberg buys it all and shuts it down we can have closure

Thanks for laying me off 6 years ago. I would still be riding this stupid train wreck

Anyone staying is lazy

Pathetic

Spot on @113WaGDl-5wkb.
I was lucky enough to get out with a few years until retirement date , but severance package paid me to sit at home until then and pursue other hobbies :-)
In different circumstances I would have jumped ship at this point.

Anyone with any understanding of private equity companies knew BS saying 3-5 years was a joke. Crazy how some people drank that kool-aid even though people tried to explain reality to them. The world is changing and you need to change with it or be left behind. It may make some sense to stay if you have a shot time until retirement. Maybe there will be some severance/retirement package. However, it makes sense that the more times a co. is sold the less loyalty and new co. will have to its employees. Even as I write this I laugh at this. Employers being loyal to their employees is virtually non-existent.

Yes BS sees Refinitiv as a long term investment and we see BS holding onto the company for a min of 5 years.
How much LSEG offering ?
Where do we sign ?
When we said 5 years , we really meant until someone flashed the $$$

I recall when TR/Refinitiv were splitting up last year, they told us that it would be a partnership and that Blackstone would be holding Refinitiv for a more long term timeframe (they cited 5 years). An outright lie unfortunately. Thankfully I didn't wait around to see if it would be true.

I doubt the HKeX LSE deal would be approved in any event by the UK govt but it shows how desperate they are to get plan B together.
I bet the RF HK team are confused as they insist they are in bed with the HKex at all levels.
A reality check perhaps.
