In primis, a detta della società, le due aziende non hanno svolto un buon lavoro di comunicazione sulle mosse post-acquisizione e circostanzia così questa affermazione "[T]he analysts are frequently called upon to give their advice and recommendations when technology vendors merge or get bought. Vendors that tend to get relatively positive coverage from the analysts surrounding their M&A (merger and acquisition) activities are the ones that do a good job of letting the world know, up front, just how things like products, policies, current contracts and go-forward business arrangements will be adjusted and honored. . . Conversely, vendors that tend to get creamed by the analysts in M&A are the ones who make the announcement, but don‚t seem to have any real plan for migrating customers, honoring contracts and articulating a go-forward plan and vision."
La KGC fa ricadere il processo di M&A nel secondo caso e arriva a ipotizzare conseguenze come la fuga del 50% dello staff Meta. Impressive. Very impressive. Indeed.
