The fact that they talked to 45 people, and there were "no takers," means that he destroyed HUGE amounts of shareholder value, with his OVERPAYING for the acquisitions he has made. The fact that he wasn't even willing (or able) to buyout the company at even $12-13 (apparently) is a horrendous indictment on his operating strategy for this entity. His eyes were bigger than his stomach with this acquisition strategy, which has apparently been a boondoggle. His credibility is destroyed with this failed strategic alternatives process. HE NEEDS TO GO!
