In recent news as reported by the SF Chronicle:
- “Sun plans to cut nearly 5,000 jobs; Santa Clara tech giant also expects to consolidate facilities and restrict poison pills in an effort to woo shareholders”
- “Speculation about potential sale of Sun: CEO says ‘no hidden message’ in job cuts; analysts skeptical”
So, is Sun Microsystems, Inc. (SUNW) priming itself for sale?
If yes, who will acquire/merge with Sun, and what will they gain?
