I think what needs to be explained is that the FedEx and Kinko's combination will substantially increase the retail presence worldwide and will enable both companies to take advantage of growth opportunities. All 1,200 Kinko's locations worldwide, including more than 400 that operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week - will offer new or expanded FedEx shipping options for greater customer convenience.
It's all about customer service and since both companies share very similar corporate philosophies you can now see why it is such a great fit. Clayton, Dubilier & Rice (CD&R), is a global private equity investment firm that owns approximately 75 percent of Kinko's outstanding shares. CD
&R will get a cash payment of 2.4 billion from FedEx. An excellent return for CD
Pretty simple to figure out that it is a great opportunity for both companies.
Yes, it's nice being on top of things for ones own portfolio.
