    You completely misunderstand. Stop trying to apply altruist behavior to these people. The intent was always to raise the stock price to get as good a price on the chopping block as possible. The company will be sold to a Gordon Gecko and chopped up into pieces. Shareholders win because they didn't have to sell at $22. Lawrie wins as he walks away with many bonuses and whatever sweetheart deals are put into place during the buyout. This was always the plan. You don't cut your development people if you really intend to roll out a next generation service.
