Beware! Company manipulates stock and dismantles acquisitions
Was employed at a small company "MSSI" for several years. Zebra Technologies courted the company for sale due to the development of several active UWB RFID tagging systems. The Zebra management set unrealistic goals as conditions of sale, pressured the owner to low ball the sale, then proceeded to execute a plan to replace management and cut all non essential staff. Luckily they cut the engineering staff first and many of us moved on to more rewarding positions at better companies. That does not excuse the lack of good faith negotiations and under handed practices utilized by the management at Zebra.
Please beware - This is their business model and it continues everyday. Acquired divisions are dismantled every quarter in order to manipulate their stock so insiders can profit monthly. If your company is about to be purchased by Zebra - expect to experience the same in less than three months. They have a long track record of destroying good companies for profit!
Typical conglomerate that constantly acquires and destroys.
