Risky business: Data cloud outfit Cloudera bares all to investors with annual report

Makes eeore seem like an optimist.

10ks are always full of doom and gloom as directors cover thier arses against the threat of mis leading shareholders lawsuits.

Having said that has anyone ever come across a successful tech M & A.

The HP Compaq fiasco still rumbles on decades later. IBMs acquisitions disappear after rebranding, renaming after about five years.

At best these aquistions/mergers allow incompetent management to look dynamic and forward thinking while hiding financial failure in a fog of "integration and restructuring" costs.
