Big sigh. The shareholder vote has passed successfully today, and the merger transaction in which my company will be acquired closes in a little over a week. I started working here almost two years ago. At the time I joined, the company was struggling after some tactical errors, and just as we got back on our feet, the economic tsunami hit in fall 2008 - torpedoing our results for another year. However, this team has worked really hard and made a lot of improvements and we all have some ambivalence about decision to accept the acquisition overture and put it to shareholder vote.
