Hello Gary. I have an exciting announcement.
The business came to an agreement to take over The Builder's Architect,
another architecture firm here in Manchester.
Oh, wow!
I wasn't aware there was a merger happening.
When will the deal be finalized?
It will be final on December 4th.
Okay, great.
That is just over a month away.
Will the employees from The Builder's Architect be joining our payroll following the acquisition?
We will retain the employees for the time being and perform evaluations to determine if we release them.
Ah, okay.
I should let my employees know.
Yes, if you can tell them as soon as possible, that would be great.
I will be speaking at a press conference this afternoon.
No problem, I'll let them know now.
