If you’re wondering what all the fuss at my day job has been about, we are being acquired by a much larger company. This was announced to the investment community and the general public at 7 am Central this morning, and much of my chaos of the last few weeks has been in developing, finalizing and implementing the internal and external communication plan.
This is largely a good thing for both my employer and myself, but it has eaten brain and life alike. The primary issue has been that we were in an SEC-mandated silent period (the acquiring company is publically traded) and I could not delegate any tasks within my own organization because of the need-to-know restrictions, which are now lifted.
Home now from a celebratory reception and subsequent dinner. Some early bird stuff tomorrow, then I’m supposed to be back on my regular work pattern. Omaha Beach Party tomorrow night. Home Thursday. Tired now.
