Never one to say no to someone volunteering to pick up the check, Mr. Lepofsky has once again succumbed to his venal predisposition and accepted 350K shares at $0 from a supine and sycophantic board, thus more than doubling his BRKS holdings. That the shares have gone nowhere for years, is apparently of little concern to these worthies, who never pass up a chance to grovel at shareholders' expense. The current value of this unworthy largess is a whopping $3.5M! What exactly has Mr. Lepofsky done to deserve this generosity, other than savaging Helix's shareholders by forcing them into a shotgun marriage to a mediocrity like BRKS, then run by a corrupt management/board? And for this he is rewarded? Are there no honest executives with a sense of proportion and restraint? Is this truly the best we can do? When do we demand more?
