ManagementSpeak: This merger will make us a stronger company. I’m very excited about it.

Translation: I’ve got a 50/50 chance of keeping my job. Most of the rest of you are toast.

Thanks to Conrad Macina, who observes that both sides call a merger a merger, but in an acquisition, the acquiring company calls it an acquisition; the acquired company calls it a merger.
