Fulfilling demand
In every industry, almost every organization would be seen acquiring one another especially those operating similar businesses. This is to expand their service coverage so as to reach out to a wider target audience. Greater demands can then be fulfilled, making the industry a smoother place of consumerism.

Good Business Deals
AT the end of the day, if the acquisition allows both companies to benefit in terms of protection and reach, then I don't see why there shouldn't be more encouragement and celebration for the takeover. It doesn't seem like any of the employees were reshuffled or redirected to other parts of the business either so it's really operations as per usual isn't it? Except with better capabilities and opportunities on the horizon!

Cheaper to Buy than to Build
It seems like this will continue to be on ongoing trend of acquisitions. Working in a shop that has performed both, in the long run it seems like acquisition will typcially be the most cost effective way of diversifying the company portfolio.
