From the Paper:

"One way to increase shareholder wealth is to understand the benefits of a merger. A recent merger valued at $23 million between Wrigley's Jr. Company and Mars Incorporated, made Wrigley the leading company in gum and confections. In taking the risk, the transaction between the two companies enhances its potential growth in diversifying the business by promoting the growth to chocolate, non chocolate confectionary, and gum categories. The goal of the merger is to create a strong cultural heritage between the two companies with a commitment to claim world dominance in the candy industry. The merger will help the giant corporation a reduction in distribution costs. The opportunity will enable the corporation to reduce margining costs of production as well."
