selling or merging

I would keep it simple:

"so the cultural prejudices against extraordinary initiatives such as selling or merging...."

The Hoovers multilingual site takes it thus:

Pirelli rolls on the information superhighway, as well as the freeway -- for now. Pirelli S.p.A. has two core businesses: cables and tires. Pirelli's cable unit (60% of sales) makes telecommunications, fiber-optic, and power cables. On the tire side of the ledger, Pirelli makes tires for cars, industrial and commercial vehicles, motorcycles, and farm machinery. Pirelli became a global leader in power cables after buying US-based General Cable's BICC General division, but now Pirelli (and the Benetton family) have agreed to take a controlling stake in Telecom Italia. Prior to the deal Pirelli sold two niche optical units; it has also announced plans to sell its commercial tire and energy cable businesses by early 2003.
Pirelli corre tanto sulle strade quanto sulla via del progresso tecnologico. La Pirelli S.p.A. concentra la propria attività in due aree principali: cavi e pneumatici. L'unità di produzione dei cavi (60% del fatturato) produce cavi per telecomunicazioni, cavi a fibre ottiche e cavi elettrici. Per quanto concerne il settore dei pneumatici, la Pirelli produce pneumatici per autovetture, veicoli industriali e commerciali, motocicli e veicoli per l'agricoltura. Con l'imminente acquisto della divisione Bicc General dell'americana General Cable, la Pirelli si appresta a conquistare la posizione di leader al mondo nel settore dei cavi elettrici, attualmente detenuta dalla francese Alcatel. L'accordo è in attesa dell'approvazione della Commissione europea. La Pirelli ha inoltre concordato la cessione della sua azienda di telecomunicazioni a fibre ottiche alla Corning per circa $3,6 miliardi.
