Congrats Red Hat, you are marrying massive debts

Congrats Red Hat. You are marrying a girl with 80B in debt that will be more than 3x leveraged soon and will have their credit rating downgraded to a BB or less after this and that means creditors will start charging substantially more interest on that 80B in debt you just married.

Hope you like beans and toast because you will never see steaks again, and don’t ever plan on taking any vacations for the rest of your life. Those days are over.

Likely this will just end up killing both of the companies in a massive debt spiral in pretty quick time but, have fun you newlyweds.
