Question description

I really need help with this !!!! Please..

The Blue Tag Company and the Pink Label Corporation both make packaging and labeling equipment.  The following facts are relevant: 

  • Both firms use similar production and sales methods.

  • Pink label has been losing money for years, while Blue Tag has been and is expected to continue to be profitable.

  • There is a great deal of overhead in label making.

  • The industry is dominated by the much larger Yellow Marker Co., which is difficult to compete with because of its size advantage

The managements of the two companies are considering a merger.  What arguments can be made in favor of such a combination?
