In what way has it failed?
Companies are in business for profit and not to be ‘nice blokes!’ and it seems reasonable that even when there may be some internal disagreement on which direction to take all work for the company benefit.
BP’s latest fiasco is in clear site and at a pristine location. However, the actual cost is not on the scale of AIG, etc.

I have held a bond with the PRU for around 10 years and I seriously was thinking of cashing it in, if the AIA merger took place. Tkank goodness it failed. The debt problem would have been enormous for the company. I hope the PRU board gets turfed out for their imprudent behavior and are forced to pay the huge legal costs out of their own pockets. I hope my investment hasn’t been squandered in the process.
