    A common director game plan:

    (1)... Take control of a company with nice share options for directors.

    (2)... Break off assets worth spinning off as separate parts of a company.

    (3)... Sell off remaining core of company.

    (4)... Profit! (for directors from the "successful sale of the company").

    (5)... Find new company and goto (1)

    Sadly this is a common CEO's game plan, where success is defined by how much they profit from it, not the workers or even the share holders (and lets not forget a lot of workers can even end up out of a job that they may have worked at for decades, when another company buys up their company), but the directors see it as a great success (for them). :(

    But then sadly thats to be expected when they employ Narcissistic self interested power hungry people as directors. :(

    Health?

    I'm guessing it is a scam to get Schwartz free massages and happy endings.

    One good side effect though..

    Pony-Tail Schwartz ain't going to be the next CEO of HP.
