You may be the world's two largest Water Companies, yet have quite a terrible track record when it comes to Mergers and Acquisitions. 😅
What's your favorite Fail:
- When Veolia divided its M&A money by 10 in 4 years?
- or when SUEZ did twice the same move, 20 years apart, for hopefully a different outcome?
- or when "Jean-Marie Messier, Me, Myself, Master of the World" took his nickname a bit too seriously?
SUEZ and VEOLIA may end up happily married.
... but only if they learn from their past failures 😉
