Solutions 6 Chief Resigns Amid Scandal
Solution 6's Chief Executive Chris Tyler has resigned after revelations that he was central to the collapse of a Canadian company in the 1990s and was also given a suspended sentence for possessing a large amount of marijuana, according to Excite.
The market reacted positively to the move, with the accounting software firm's shares leaping 28% after his departure was announced. The previous poor performance of Solution 6 shares has led some to believe the resignation was forced.
Tyler owns 10% of Australian firm Solution 6, and is said to be in line for a six month payout.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
