Yes. So why wait. Its a negotiation. If they just get ride of him now they would have to pay him $90 M in share vesting. If they say its justified to fire him with cause he gets nothing. Neither will happen. They will negotiate an exit strategy just like most CEOs that get fired in this country.
Yes, he is SO smart that he stayed in NG for a year or more after shoe shine boys were talking abut the coming NG glut. Then he was so smart he got totally FOOLED by the depletion rates in the Mississippian and was forced to sell the PER. But he was smart at stealing from the shareholders, I have to give him that.
He is extremely Smart and well educated and has alot of experience, I can't knock him for any of that, He is extremely intelligent, however he is also extremely greedy and arguably unethical, so with that being said, i don't care how smart he is.
Screw me once, shame on you, screw me twice shame on me. I won't let Tom screw me twice and I don't think TPG will either.
