Tyco To Be Acquired By JCI? "Advanced Talks" Now

Tyco is one of the biggest security manufacturers (through Tyco Security Products) and integrators (through Tyco Integrated Security).

Reports are saying that Johnson Controls is in 'advanced talks' to acquire / merge with Tyco. JCI is the larger overall company and has some security presence already but would be tremendously bolstered by acquiring Tyco.

If this deal goes through, what do you think the impact will be?

UPDATE: Deal is done - see announcement.
