    Poison pill provisions have breaded mediocrity !

    Icahn and Eastbrn did a fin job with just 2 people on the BOD .Costs were slashed,

    • "costs were slashed"

      Is there a possibility that this had anything to do with a decrease in attention paid to details (maybe some important personnel were fired), which led to the screwups.

        Absolutely not.
        The regulatory team in charge since 2000 that have screwed up one filing PR and FDA question one after another were left in charge was the reason for the failure.

        The slash in spending was a return to the MO by the previous CEO who didn't spend huge sums on ( ie advertising campaign to GPs, as opposed to targeting hi prescribing endos.)and other boondoggles management tried.

        The FDA also CHANGED THEIR APPROVAL OF AN IN LINE EXTENSION.granted in 2006.tHE fda HAS SHOWN ONCE AGAIN THAT THE BEST AND BRIGHTEST ARE NOT AT THE AGENCY.iT IS A REVOLVING DOOR OF WANNA BES.
