Autonomy founder's anti-extradition case is like saying Moon made of cheese, US govt tells UK court


Re: Buyers’ remorse

Like you, I have been following this from the start.

the crux of the matter is, were HP in possession of all the relevant evidence with which they needed to accurately evaluate the value of autonomy

If they weren't, did autonomy's management wilfully defraud them by providing incorrect evidence that it should be valued higher.

From my interpretation, Autonomy were bending some of the accounting rules, but they broke none. HP were in possession of all the facts and all the paperwork, they rushed the assessment of it through to get the transaction over the line and overvalued Autonomy.

Basically, Leo Apotheker screwed the pooch and got fired, and Mike went laughing all the way to the bank
