Yesterday an article titled "Alias to lay off 400 in post-merger move" was posted here on Highend3d that referenced an article posted in the National Post Toronto. The article was very inaccurate on it's facts. I followed up with Kevin Clark of Autodesk this morning and he has confirmed that the article was based on speculation and not facts:
The 400 number is inaccurate. The actual number is not publicly divulged
Redundancies are a sensitive topic, and to respect those affected, we do not release names or number of staff affected.
This was not a merger, it was an acquisition. Autodesk, Inc. acquired Alias, Inc.
400 layoffs (not accurate)
