Is Occam nearing sale?

Occam Networks faced a wave of investor disapproval (to put it mildly) for management's handling of an accounting snafu, and now the firm's board of directors has revised CEO Robert Howard-Anderson's contract in such a way that it removes any "disincentive" (Telephony's word) he might have to seek a sale of the company.

Occam hasn't said anything publicly about putting itself up for sale, but it looks like things are heading that way. If that happens, the buyer will gain a good number of relationships with independent telcos.
