Sergei is unhappy, didn't see the fall-off in handset volume. He bought a company with a blown headgasket (failing business model), but a great paint job (patents). Maybe the dynamic GeekDuo should stick to the computer stuff.
wtf are you talking about??? You can't even keep a straight thought. You keep scattering buckshot hoping one of your idiotic theories sticks.
fattymcfatass is a loser. I bet you sold your mmi for a loss before the goog takeover was announced, therefore you're a bitter mcfatass.
I dont think the agreement has a provision or defines Material Adverse Effect as related to drops in unit volumes.
If there were any buyer's remorse, it most likely will come in the form of purposely not rolling over if there were any regulatory intervention -- i.e. by letting the regulators be the bad guy.
GOOG could accomplish its strategy by offering to pay MMI the $1.3B break-up fee plus another $3B for the patents (and then license back to MMI so MMI will be protected) -- then it wont have to own a non-competitive handset vendor and a dying set-top box business that GOOG itself is trying to replace with smart TV's.
EU Commission spokesman just stated that Google did not offer any "remedies" by yesterday's deadline and the EU's merger review of GOOG-MMI will remain next monday Feb 13th.
Game of chicken with EU regulators,...or letting the regulators have the kill shot?
Maybe you should stick to the facts. I believe posting bogus headlines like this is a felony (and if not, has some pretty nasty civil penalties), and while I don't expect the SEC to get in your face, I am certainly going to take the 3 seconds it takes to report it.
I await the SEC with pleasure, I would LOVE IT if those sleepyheads showed up at my door, or at least take a look to see if I have an MMI position....which I don't BTW. I loved it when people get complaining about Maddof, but the SEC never had a reason to pursue him. They felt the evidence of his wrongdoing should be presented to them on a silver platter. After all, why should they interrupt their continuous coffee break to do some work. I know you didn't call them, you're too smart to know the SEC for the lazy beaurocrats that they actually are.
