What happens to Duggan in the acquisition? Sometimes execs get fired and walk off with a pile of money. Then CoS will want ALL of it.

There is probably an agreement that he will stay on a certain length of time to "assist" in the transition and can stay if he wants to. My guess is he will take the money and run.

As to the "pile of money", yes this deal gives him $3.5 billion for his stock in Pharmacyclics!

I speculate the registrars are already drilling for their cycles with Duggan.
I hope they overdo it and piss him off.

From Forbes:

For Robert Duggan, the billionaire Chairman and CEO of Pharmacyclics, the pharma sweepstakes are proving fruitful. Pharmacyclics shares shot up over 10% on Thursday, boosting the value of Duggan’s net worth to $3.5 billion. Since Feb. 13, Duggan’s shares have gained $1.2 billion in value.

AbbVie is doling out a hefty premium for Pharmacyclics, but the deal may help the Chicago-based manufacturer of autoimmune blockbuster Humira rebuild its pipeline as the drug goes generic. It also gives CEO Richard A. Gonzalez a major dealmaking win after the company’s proposed $54 billion takeover of Ireland-based Shire Pharmaceuticals was effectively blocked by the U.S. government, which put a curb on so-called inversion transactions that shift corporate headquarters to low-tax jurisdictions.

Bob Duggan, the richest Scientologist in the world, is going to love our nifty new drawings!

Image

snip:

Well, since then, Bob’s only gotten more like Croesus as he sold his cancer drug company, Pharmacyclics, for $22 billion, and Forbes now estimates his worth at $3.5 billion, making him the 810th richest person on the planet (#284 in the US), and a special favorite of Scientology leader David Miscavige.

You might be wondering, why are you bringing this up now? Well, one of our astute readers pointed out to us that just a couple of weeks ago, Duggan, through an agent, made a complaint to Google about our story.

snip:

Well, rather than wait around to see what Google was going to do about it, we got creative.

With the help of talented cartoonist Chad Essley of Oregon, we’ve replaced most of the images in the original story with a kickass set of really cool illustrations!

Please, go look for yourselves, and in so doing, get that story’s rank on Google even higher! Because all of Bob’s friends and neighbors and business associates deserve to see it!

From Tony Ortega:

"This October, the wealthiest donors of all, the Duggan family, once again busted through the top of the status scheme, and David Miscavige had to come up with yet another status name and trophy to recognize them for it."

"The newest trophy looks like an upside down chrome chicken with its tail feathers sticking skyward. And the name for this lofty new perch? Dave is calling it “Platinum Invictus.”"

He looks vain, with stretched skin like a face lift. Born in 1944, no way a 71-year-old naturally has all-black hair with a perfect hairline. I bet the drawing with the jowls and the neck wrinkles really annoys him.

Duggan and Grant Cardone are the new top celebrities, willing to be paraded around, smart enough to impress ordinary public members, and dumb enough to fork over $$$$$. But Duggan's ship-kids-to-South-Africa scandal may break his loyalty, leaving Grant and his scary wife on top of...nothing.

Robert Duggan was successful in having google bury Tony Ortega's story about Duggan's kids being raised by South African Scientologists, possibly in exchange for large donations to the church. We're going to help Tony raise the rank of the following new story.

Google helps Scientology billionaire Bob Duggan hide a dark family secret

Recently, we told you that California pharmaceuticals entrepreneur Bob Duggan — a man currently worth $2.3 billion — had, through an agent, complained to Google about a story we wrote about him.

Duggan didn’t complain directly to us, but then he must have known that the facts in the story we wrote are rock solid. We relied on first-hand accounts, court records, and photographic evidence to show that in 2013, at the same time that Duggan and his wife, Trish, were propping up failing Scientology facilities in South Africa with large donations, two of their six adopted children suddenly showed up in that country, and were being cared for by South African Scientology families.

Well what do-ya-know, this thread comes up on page 4 when you google Robert Duggan. Not amazing, but not bad. Go Clambakers!

Tony's story turns up on the first page if you google Bob Duggan.

Did Google even bother to check whether the images Duggan complained about were still in the piece? Does it matter now? Would they respond to an “appeal” of some sort? Our experts tell us trying to get through to Google and convince it to explain itself is about as quixotic a task as there is in this Internet age.

So we decided rather than go begging to Google we would write this story, and let our readers know what kind of interference the search giant is running for a billionaire like Duggan.

And, if our readers read, link to, tweet, Facebook, and share this story to as many people as they can, it might just rise up on Google’s search results, and help direct people to our original story. At least that’s the theory. We’ll see.
