Vision Quote of the Day

Henry Kravis

Financier and Investor

Today, we have a portfolio of some 15 or 16 companies. We have hundreds of thousands of employees in these different companies, with about 40 billion dollars in revenue. They are counting on us. These people's livelihood depends, in part, upon decisions that we make. I don't want to let those people down. I want to do what I hope is the right thing. Yes, there is some pain going through it. Yes there is some terminations early on, but in the long run, if we can make a company more competitive, and leaner, and more profitable, they eventually are going to hire more people, because they are going to grow. And they are going to be able to make acquisitions, down the road, sensible acquisitions.
