Threats

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.
