8006: Over 3.4 Billion Sold.
Big deals in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Southwest Airlines is buying competitor AirTran in a deal estimated at $3.4 billion. Bet the amount would have been significantly less if the purchase were made through Priceline.
• Unilever announced plans to purchase Alberto Culver in a deal estimated at $3.7 billion. Which means Unilever will own even more brands that ignore the efforts of the Dove Real Beauty campaign.
