- aDid you hear the news?Two of our major supplliers,Murphy Music and U-Tunes are merging!If they are conglomerated into one company into one company,it would have some serious affects on our market strategy.
- bAre you sure?Who told you that?I highly doubt that they would take the step to merge into one company...They're supposed to be bitter enemies,the strictest of competitors.It must be a rumor.It can't be ture.
- aI read it myself on the financial page.They're really going to join together.U-Tunes was bought out by Murphy's,they will take over the company as of next month.
- bThe competition must have been too stiff for U-Tunes.Otherwise why would they allow themselves to be taken over by their sworn enemy?
- aI guess they must have figured it would be easier to merge than to keep up the cutthroat competition.If you can't beat'em,join'em.
