Government has more concern on mergers because they will expect more revenues and profits and subsequently more tax however,government is also concerned about the consumer market if such merger can create a monopoly and can exploit the consumer rights.

The effect on the amount to be paid for Trenton would be that if the company can learn and use this outsource opportunity and get benefits through this, then the amount that is offered for the bid can be adjusted and can be increased in relation to expected benefits that will be derived by the company through outsourcing.

The company may compare the amount that will be saved through outsourcing and can increase the bid amount according to it. However,since there is no other bidder on the market for acquiring Trenton,therefore the increment on value for consideration is not recommended…………………..
