    Pros

    Nothing constructive to add here

    Cons

    Too many to list. This is a ruthless course correction and attempt to package and sell off this dying company. CEO is a one trick cost cutting pony and old school sales guy from yesteryear. Side kick Jo Mason is his execution proxy and lacks any true capabilities other than tight connection to Lawrie. This duo doesn't understand growth, how to crete a positive culture, empower and reward people - nor are they interested in doing so Lawrie has done his job by cutting costs etc but if this company is to truly move forward a new CEO is needed asap. Board - feel free to assert yourselves at any time here ;) Lawrie just wants to sell this puppy, get his cash and ride off into the sunset in any way possible. He's not building (or capable of building) anything.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing constructive
