Each operates independently but is guided by by the group founders under a collective strategic umbrella. The companies share technology, and engage in joint marketing and benefit from a common management structure. Mr. Zisapel has obviuosly shown he has the ability to negotiate the sale of companies over the past 12 years and obviously knows what his company is worth, i feel he will get the $53/sh he wants, if not more.
