Why wouldn't thermofisher

Why wouldn't thermofisher start buying as much Life stock as possible now while its still below their offer price?

They're not going to pay cash for LIFE. It's almost certainly a TMO share/cash mix proposal. They'll print up a truckload of TMO shares and take a lot of "goodwill" on the books.

I'm guessing Frederick Distribution is done. Thermo already has a distribution center on the east coast dont they?

Are you kidding me? Every company Invitrogen bought was hacked to pieces as soon as GL saw a new & shiny toy he just had to buy. It's about time Carlsbad gets the same treatment.

I visited CB a couple times. I met people with the title of Principal Engineer" who at any other company "might", at the very best, be considered a Senior Engineer 1. Good luck to them finding a job anywhere near their exaggerated skill level at a "real" engineering or development company. They just won't make the weight. There are janitor jobs out there they might be qualified to do.

Don't get me started on their Product Managers...

KC is an idiot with a HS

KC is an idiot with a HS education. He did the same to me many years ago when he first came to Life Tech. I hope they get rid of that incompetent manager wanna be. Kickback is a good word, ain't that right. John B.

"In fact, I will say this. I know who you are, I know who you work/worked for....Keep it up about KC or the facilites group and/or implications of a "kickback". Can you say black balled?"

Blackballed? The 1950's are calling, they want their word back.
Assuming you even know what the word implies, know that you are far too unimportant to squeak it out loud, let alone have any influence on who's hiring who.

On the other hand here's a word you need to know -blueballed.
Simply defined, it's what eventually happens to all low lifes who threaten reprisals on an open forum. Eventually a comment is made which identifies them and then...well, their genitals complain.

"I was let go so that they

"I was let go so that they can bring another vendor in to do my job in calibration. Something smells here. Can you say kickback"

---------------------------

You were "let go" because you couldnt do your job. You had the calibration program in shambles, and RB from Anacor/Transcat was asked over and over to do something about...YOU!

The fact that you posted what you did make you a complete idiot because its so easy to figure out who you are.

To suggest a "kickback" means you really dont know KC.

What Happens When a 'HiPPO'

What Happens When a 'HiPPO' Runs Your Company?

Ron Johnson exited JC Penney humbled, with a list of accomplishments that he certainly didn’t intend to leave as his legacy:

• The company burned through nearly $1 billion in 17 months, taking its cash balance from $1.8 billion to $930 million

• Revenue fell by 25 percent in 2012 for a loss of nearly $1 billion

• The company’s market capitalization fell by nearly 50 percent on Johnson’s watch

How does a leader initially hailed as the second-coming of Steve Jobs, ready to reinvent a 111-year-old staid retailer, crash and burn in such dramatic fashion? If JC Penney’s board members had studied Amazon more closely, they might have discovered the answer. Leaderslike Johnson have a special name at Amazon: they’re called HiPPOs, which stands for “highest paid person’s opinion.” HiPPOs are leaders who are so self-assured that they need neither other’s ideas nor data to affirm the correctness of their instinctual beliefs. Relying on their experience and smarts, they are quick to shoot down contradictory positions and dismissive of underling’s input.

Oh I am so happy I got rifted

Oh I am so happy I got rifted 3 years ago, and now have a much happier existence working for a company that gives a crap about people, and has a clear, singlular vision....I just feel bad for a lot of good people, who have given blood for this company, and will now be facing the axe....San Diego is a small fish when it comes to jobs, and I know it will be difficult when hundreds of people start flooding the market in about 3-12 months time.....GLT, you got what you wanted when you bought this 10 years ago....may you enjoy your money fights with all the others....knowing all along, that hundreds if not thousands of people paid blood for you....and were so miserable every day they came to work...i should know, I spoke to them every day for 5 years...now, I am away from the death star I can actually sleep at night

"The bids came in at $66 to $69 a share, said two of the people, who asked not to be named as the process is private. Life could pick a buyer as soon as next week or decide against a sale, said one of the people.

Thermo Fisher can probably take out $300 million to $400 million in costs and the deal would be immediately accretive, and the company’s shareholders are supportive of a deal, one person said. Ross Muken, an analyst with ISI Group, said Thermo Fisher could pay up to $70 a share and still generate “double- digit” returns within five years.

“There is a large synergy opportunity here,” Muken said in a telephone interview from New York. “There are going to be cost synergies on the sales side and back office and some duplicative R&D and places you can find over investment in the Life business.”"
