Vulnerable?

Certainly there's no external pressure to sell, though, with no dissatisfied board of directors, no shaky share price and no impending business collapse seemingly on the horizon. But there is a very powerful owner, and a very ambitious one. And there's a very real chance that his ambitions for his company's future are intrinsically linked to the future ownership of MySpace. Thus, while a transaction remains unlikely, few would completely rule it out.
