MERGER: meaning and examples

Good morning. I hope all of you had a good weekend. Today's word is: merger (business English; noun) It means: the process of joining two companies or organizations to form a bigger one. Example 1: The merger between the two energy companies is going to have a big impact on the country's economy. Example 2: The workers were opposed to the merger because of the possible loss of jobs that would probably result. Example 3 There is no way that any of the small companies in town will be able to compete with Gigant Inc. if the merger goes through. We will all be ruined!
