By Joe Cook shielding the company's leadership from fearing any reprocussions due to poor performance with his poison pill provisions, that has lead to mediocrity at the top. In 2009 Carl Icahn showed up on the scene and forced some changes, which don't appear to have been enough. I hope if Amylin's Board of Directors don't decide to step up to the plate to do something about the horrible and wasted year 2010 turned out to be, that Icahn steps up again to force the issue.
Icahn and Eastbrn did a fin job with just 2 people on the BOD .Costs were slashed, unfortunatelty they need a full slate this time and all that deaql with the FDA must go immediately.This is long overdue
Please spare us your proof reading skills and try offering up some original material of your own about Amylin. Just to save you some time, I concede that just about all my posts will most likely have some kind of writing error in them. But then again, this is a message board so who the hell cares !
