    The diabetes care business is a commodity with no top line sales growth. The sale of the business makes sense.

    Do not be surprised if it is Medtronics - makes sense they have been a strong partner of ours over in Europe and In canada -

    My concern is what happens to the Meter reps - care to look at what happend at Accu-Chek under very similar circumstances? Pump reps kept on and Meter Reps let go - just saying...may want to get your resumes in order...

    I think it's Medtronic too.. That email from GV pretty much sums up where we stand in the launch of this new link meter. No where.

    Actually that is not true. AC only retained a handful of their pump reps. The majority of their sales force is former meter reps.

    Roche is buying only because they want to get the talented and world class performer JT back. He alone would pay for the purchase price.

    Sorry to disagree but the most recent realignment saw the displacement of nearly 30% of the meter reps and zero of the pump reps - there were a few Clinical Specialist, let go - when AC purchase DUSA a few years back there was a reduction in pump rep sales force, I think you have your facts mixed up. So Bayer rep be very concerned about your future...just saying....

    People may lose their jobs so I assume they care. You sound like someone who works in DE.

    They are desperate to unload this division, why else would a story 'leak'? Companies tend to 'leak' stories like this when they're desperate to unload it.

    The fact is BGM is a commodity, where low price wins... And your products do not compete in a price sensitive market
