What do you mean the dream? The dream for who? Not BMS employees. I think it's a great company with a great pipeline and if management gets their act together down the road I think it will again be the aquierer instead of the aquieree. I 'm not too crazy about the latest trend of foreign compnies aquiring US compnies.
Cornelius being made th CEO is the key. Everyone knows he doesnt want the permanent position. Now they have a "permanent" CEO to negotiate the deal and then NOT want or take the top position. Pipeline deals are part of this industry, when you acquire a company you get some you don't want. Deals go through all the time.
