Tuesday May 22 2001:

Pasadena and Paris - Mandrakesoft denies rumours of mass layoffs and explains recent senior management changes

In order to quell further rumours regarding MandrakeSoft's alleged pressing needs for financial liquidity, recent layoffs of part of its senior management team and planned layoffs in its Development team, MandrakeSoft Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO Jacques Le Marois explains that "former CEO Henri Poole and himself mutually agreed on the management change over a month ago as a result of a divergence of views regarding the Company's strategic outlook: Henri's vision was to establish MandrakeSoft as a leader in the e-learning and e-support arenas without a specific focus on Linux, whereas my view is that the source of our success and very essence of our Company is the Linux-Mandrake operating system, and that all of our online services such as MandrakeExpert and MandrakeCampus should be geared to support it and bring value to our user community (...) Furthermore, there is absolutely no foundation in the rumour that we are planning to layoff our Development team, who represent a crucial asset for MandrakeSoft, especially in light of our refocusing on our core Linux values."
