OMG! I actually agree with Craig!
But it's so true! Honchoes are only in it for the "moment" and their jobs
depends on cost reduction and profit increasing.
Shareholders will only keep their shares if they return an growth,
otherwise they sell, and selling means lowering of share price, and if lots
of investors sell, then share prices drop even more because the supply
exceeds the demand.
About now would be a good time for shareholders to start selling their
shares. With the "Take Over" bid in play, there will be lots of little
buyers out there collecting for the Take Over Bidder, one share at a time.
By outsourcing your XYZ department, you reduce the overheads because
instead of being an annual fixed cost, it becomes a monthly invoice and
hence the next month's and onwards figures are reduced accordingly and look
Till the invoices come in. But that's not important. As X months
backwards divided by 12 is always cheaper than $72,000 divided by 12 x the
number of staff you just sacked!
