Quotes

Commenting on North Tide Capital's nomination of a dissident slate of directors, the Board said, "We and management appreciate and, indeed, actively seek out constructive investor input; however, we believe North Tide's analysis is deeply flawed. We fundamentally disagree with North Tide's proposals, including replacing management and selling or spinning off certain core assets. We believe their short-sighted and ill-conceived agenda would derail Healthways' strong momentum and destroy stockholder value. In the interest of avoiding unnecessary distraction and costs at this critical time for the Company, we attempted to reach an agreement with North Tide in good faith, including offering board positions for two of their nominees and mutually agreeing on a third independent nominee. We are disappointed that North Tide rejected our offer out-of-hand. Given their actions in response to our reasonable, constructive offer from the Board to avoid a contest, we question whether they are truly acting in the best interests of all stockholders."
"Mr. Naumann appeared to be making a frantic effort to steal whatever documents he could before he left AlixPartners" the lawsuit said
"It's not a proper market yet, but it will come," Manuel Backhaus, a managing partner at the AlixPartners consulting company, told Businessweek . "Many manufacturers are still very reluctant about the concrete implementation because of possible risks to their supply chain."
"We are entering a dynamic period when consumers will likely be assessing who they are willing to trust in this complex world of digital/mobile shopping, payments and couponing. Banks seem to start with a significant trust advantage. However, banks must either actively exercise their advantages or risk being made irrelevant in couponing as new digital entrants seek to play the dominant role" concluded Hedges
