It would have been better to sell one outright than Mergers. The industry is so competitive that even post-merger, they are very small to challenge the big guys.

Yes, but it may be marginal competition. The real problem is coming from Asia. As we saw the steel industry go in U.S/Wester Europe. most of these companies will be challenged by globalization. M&A will help but the global competitive market will not disappear.
