I would suspect that if a buyer is found they will end up paying even less in salaries than suggested above. New management will cut all expenses to the bone, which means more layoffs, in order to try and keep the company solvent and recoup their investment. They will immediately look at ways of downsizing the operation to fit the market they pervicve themselves to be in. The other thing they will do is look at each product and determine if it's going to make money. If not, it will not matter how wonderful a product it is, it will be gone.
