Talk of Leverage Buy Out. Can't blame them for wanting to go private.
This lousy economy; these crazy regulations; Vulture Activists Funds like Ramius and Starboard Value running around looking to destroy companies just so they can make a quick buck.
All companies of potential value (companies that are rich with cash; with cuttable costs; good for sale of part or whole) are jittery. What sane public company that deals in tangible products won't try very, very hard to go private?
What a shame, another opportunity to participate in a company's riches lost. Another investment opportunity lost.
