Thread regarding Lockheed Martin Corp. layoffs

My money is on a spinoff instead of a sale.

A look at the environment for companies today suggests a Spinoff instead of a sell. Really what company can cough up a cool 6 billion for the acquisition of the ISGS business unit.

Lockheed would also be stupid to sell off ISGS vice a spin, because divorced from the excessive overhead rates ISGS will become competitive again. The problem is that the corporation as a whole is totally bloated and set to manufacture items instead of being a serviced based organization. Corporate flowdowns are killing ISGS, so being out from under them should help ISGS win contracts.

Rumor is also that they'll look to do a reverse morris trust to merge ISGS with another company and avoid some tax burdens...

If ISGS will be so competitive after being freed from Bethesda wouldn't that make them even more competitive? I suppose Lockheed Martin could generate some cash from a sale-- they just shelled out big bucks to buy Sikorsky so they could use a little spare change.
