That’s up sixty cents from the record low set Tuesday, but deeply below last year’s high of $33.85.
Lots of rumors floating around, and then there’s this report just sent us here at esnl by a leak:
You may be interested to know they fired the head of HR, Legal and the CTO (a founder) yesterday. The workers assume another big round of layoffs (of non-millionaires) with the company going under by 2013. It’s too bad the science is being killed by a bunch of guys who couldn’t manage their way out of a paper bag.
The message boards have been flooded with rumors, ranging from a buyout by Total the closing feared by employees at the Emeryville genetic engineering outfit founded by UC Berkeley genetic “engineer” Jay Keasling with bucks from Bill Gates..
Looks like it’s going to be a really bumpy ride, now that the company is closing down in domestic ethanol distribution system and focusing all its activities on Brazil [where there are rumors of contamination in their stills filled with genetically engineered microbes] and Spain.
