Bank The bank is interested in Boots depositing money to them so they can make money off them. The bank would swiftly accept any loan application off Boots plc because they know that Boots have a big stake in the cosmetics market therefore they could get the money to pay off the loan easily. Recently Boots announced that they would close down one of their factories in Airdrie. This move will affect some of the stakeholders and not others. Some will be affected in a good way and others in a bad way e.g. the employees would be affected by the closing down of the factory because all of the people working in the factory will loose their jobs. The shareholders might be affected badly because they could lose money because the company is smaller or they could be better off if with the money Boots gave the shareholders some. The manager of the factory would be affected because he would be moved or even given redundancy. Another recent event was when anti-abortion groups protested against boots because they opened a family planning clinic for young people this story affects the pressure groups because they have to confront Boots about the problem, it affects the customers because they might not get into the store to ...read more.

Conclusion

The shareholders will be very happy with this as their share in the business will rise greatly and if they were to sell their shares they would make lot of money. The government have to assess whether if Boots and Unichem merge, will the other leading superstores such as Superdrug be affected too much. The government will also need to look at whether the merger would be against the public interest, as well as the shareholders interests. Some of the shareholders have different interests e.g. the customers are overall happy about the merger but the employees think they are in danger of losing their jobs. Superdrug is not as vulnerable to Boots's expansion as an Asian Tycoon Li Ka-shing plans to merge Superdrug with his company Kruidvat. This will put Superdrug near their rivals Boots. Superdrug have also made a statement explaining that they plan to make a new website www.Superdrug.com/health which will offer help on medical conditions alternative remedies and diet and lifestyle help for people of all ages. This is aimed to take Boots's website users over to Superdrug. ?? ?? ?? ?? Michael Mason ...read more.
