New York (February 26th, 2013) - The Wall Street Journal on Monday reported that the companies, Office Max and Office Depot were in "advanced talks to merge." The proposed merger would help the companies compete against rivals Staples Inc. and Amazon.com.
The two companies combined (Office Max and Office Depot) would have roughly 2575 stores located across the U.S. and Mexico. In 1997, a potential deal between Staples and Office Depot was blocked by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission as they feared it would lower completion and increase prices.
Staples (NASDAQ: SPLS) is the world's largest office products company and second largest internet retailer. Investment firm Janney Capital Markets believes the merger would provide a major boost for Staples.
