go out of business
Bank of America merged with a rival bank.
A: I heard a rumor this morning. It seems Trusten Tools to is going out of business. Another competitor is going bankrupt. That could be good news for us.
B: I think you must have heard wrong. The truth is we are going to be taken over by Trusten. We're being bought out, and our company will be merging with our largest competitor. It's not good news at all.
A: What? We're merging with Trusten? I never thought that would happen. Will we be getting new owners? Will it affect our jobs?
B: Probably. The new owners will be coming to start alignment meetings next week.
A: Wow, with such a big change. We won't even have the same name.
B: It's not only the name of our company that will change. I expect that after this acquisition, there'll be a ton of things up in the air.
