ABSTRACT
The article focuses on public announcements made by several companies which explore strategic alternatives, including sale or acquisition deals. Most companies end up pursuing a sale or acquisition or decide to divest assets, execute spin-offs, or follow some other path in order to revitalize themselves. But every now and then, a company does not consummate a deal, nor does it take any other major action, and for a public company, especially, that can be a chancy move.
