'Inversion Deals'; the New Trend in Corporate Outsourcing

'Inversion Deals'; the New Trend in Corporate Outsourcing


CASH 1 Loans offers Short Term Loans for emergencies should you find yourself in “uncertain times”.

In the 90’s it was about ‘downsizing’. In the last decade it was ‘outsourcing’. Now, the latest trend in corporate layoffs is called the ‘Inversion Deal’. United States Corporations are merging with European and Canadian Corporations to take advantage of lower taxes in countries like the United Kingdom and The Netherlands. On the surface, this might sound like a good thing. But inevitably, when corporations merge they tend to trim away the fat; what middle management sees as non-essential personnel. Usually when these things happen, the companies eliminate the jobs in the United States in favor of the lower paying jobs overseas in addition to the better tax structure. Worst part is, most of the time, if it happens to your company, they won’t tell you about it in order to avoid a whole round of people quitting and searching for another job.

Has this happened to you or your spouse? Have you heard about your company merging with a European corporation? This doesn’t necessarily mean you or your spouse will be losing a job but it never hurts to be prepared. Keep your ear to the ground if your Company’s CEO starts saying things like “We’ve got a very exciting announcement coming soon!” or anything that sounds like that.

Look online for news articles about the corporation you work for, keep an eye out for telltale signs such as statements that say “Our Company is looking to diversify” or “We’re open to new areas of opportunity.” This doesn’t necessarily mean an inversion deal is impending, but it certainly can be an indicator for you to take precautionary measures. A great place to keep your ear to the ground is your company’s website. If there’s a section called “press releases” or “statement for the media”, keep it bookmarked and check it from time to time. Few things are worse than the ugly surprise of getting laid off because of an unexpected merger.

Someone always writes “we live in times of uncertainty”, or something similar, but we at CASH 1 are a little hard pressed to remember when times were ever “certain”. Bubbles grow and burst; banking, employment, real estate, and whatever other trend arises in the field of making money. Livelihoods are lost, pensions disappear and it sometimes feels like none of those who make the crucial decision are willing to be held accountable. We’re not trying to scare you. In fact we’re pretty sure we haven’t told you anything you don’t already know. We are, to be clear, assuring you that CASH 1 can be utilized as an emergency resource should you find yourself in “uncertain times”.
