IndigoVision Takeover Battle

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jan 10, 2012

Less than a month ago, IndigoVision's CEO 'resigned'. Since then, the situation has devolved into a very public takeover battle with the CEO saying he was forced out and now leading a new effort to take back his former company. In this note, we examine what is going on and what this means for IndigoVision's competitiveness.

[UPDATE: Jan 30, 2012: Takeover Talks Terminated.]
