I think that depends on your point of view. I'm sure the board members believe they are acting in the best interest of shareholders because ultimately they think an acquisiition by Microsemi (at the offered price of $549 million) is bad for Zarlink. But no doubt that others feel differently.

Please tell us more - in order to understand whether such Board action is self serving or truly in the interests of the majority shareholders....
